This luxury hotel resides in an isolated area in the mountains near Liberia. The road is difficult (11 kilometers of a stones), and then you reach paradise. It is a very well maintained resort, excellent bungalows, large area of trees and grass, a good restaurant (in costarican terms....), and the e spa area, There are three hot spring pools (based...

Resort is beautiful, the rooms are big and very well kept. Service was superb. Only a few things to keep in mind. It is on a mountain, be prepared to have some steep walks getting up and down to the room from the main lobby and restaurant. It is isolated, there is nothing around there and any place you go...

My husband and I RARELY have any time away from our busy life of work and kids. This was PERFECT for us and so relaxing and romantic! We were able to do horseback riding, zip lining, waterfall hike, mud pools, hot spring pools, and a wonderful meal all in just 1 night and 2 days.

Stopped at this resort with a tour group. The property is really nice. You will get to see monkeys and other wild life on this resort so keep your cameras with you. The rooms however are very minimalist.. We were expecting more. Our room had two small hard beds, not very comfortable. Recommend requesting a bungalow/villa in the lower area.... More

As avid hikers and lovers of nature, Borniquen met our expectation 100% and beyond! We stayed for 7 days. The ride to the hotel is a semi-off-roading experience...there are signs all the way to the hotel so just stay the course. There are rustic homes, countryside, small farms, the town of Canes Dulce (where we stopped for a couple snacks... More

Stayed three nights. We love it here. (A bit off the beaten track but that happens to be what we love about it). One does get used to the drive....Spa, Sauna and Mud baths could not have been more relaxing. Swimming pool is quite lovely. Our horseback ride was wonderful with a very good guide. Restaurant (indoors and outdoors) is... More

We were here for 2 nights as part of our own tour and we had a great time. Our villa was fantastic - comfortable, great breezes, and gorgeous view. The staff was friendly and helpful. We went on the canopy tour via horseback and it was just the two of us and the guides - all great and fun. The... More

Borinquen is a fabulous resort with pristine grounds, a very friendly staff, set on an expansive (6,000 acres I was told) grounds near the Rincon La Vieja National Park. I am amazed at the quality and upkeep of the property that is so far from everything - to get there from Liberia is about 1 hour, 40 minutes of that... More

My wife and I have visited Borinquen 4 times and I am sad to say that the place is on its way downhill. It is an extremely beautiful location that I love to visit. It is also apparent that the owner has not been doing simple maintenance and that the manager is doing a poor job. Our junior suite had... More
