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

My friend and I booked this tour through our hotel. What I liked: 1 This was our first time zip lining. The operators took their time to explain the safety features and made sure we got the help we needed to get started. It was clear the operation is well run. My friend dropped her camera pouch and one operator... More

Many birds and animals to be seen A troop of white faced monkeys was evident as well as some Howlers. the weather can be strange as there is a pretty constant cloud... More

This resort is very unique. It takes a long time to get here from Liberia as the road into the hotel is a very rough dirt road with twists and turns so if you are driving yourself you must really pay attention to the road and the signs so you don't get a flat or get lost. There are lots... More
