Our trip came during the beginning humid time of the tour season (June). Since this was not the busiest travel time for summer guests, it made for a quiet stay and an amazing experience! Beautiful is an understatement! Amazingly gorgeous is getting close. In a few accurate words to compliment this bird’s paradise, it is the most secluded, tropical, couple’s... More

So, I have mixed emotions. Had my husband not gotten sick on our honeymoon (from the FOOD. a bacteria that added him to the list for the DPH when we got back. Campylobacter, check it out - from poor food handling), I would have given this place 5 stars. We spent 5 nights there, and he didn't end up getting... More

One of the best places in the North Pacific of Costa Rica. One of the best properties located in the volcano area and surrounded by an amazing nature. Once you get there you realize you are in the middle of the jungle. The adventure activities are amazing and the zip lining is one of the most amazing canopy tours in... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in early March as part of an Air Canada Vacations Ecotour. The last 30 minutes of the ride from the Liberia airport is quite bumpy as the road is not paved. We arrived at the hotel late-afternoon. We checked in and were driven to our room in one of their trucks. The... More

This hotel is in a beautiful location and the rooms are very nice. It was different to wake up to the sound of howler monkeys. The dinner is also worth mentioning, it was one of the best meals I had while in Costa Rica. The canopy adventure is amazing and worth while.

We loved this property. The grounds are beautiful, the hot springs and pool area are lovely. The service was top notch. The food at the restaurant was excellent. When we arrived it was low season and there weren't many people at the hotel so they upgraded us to a bungalow and we loved it! The ATV trip to the waterfall... More

As part of the Monkey Tours Costa Rica & Nicaragua trip my husband and I stayed here with our group and did all of the activities on the property. When we arrived in the afternoon we had a delicious lunch buffet of typical Costa Rican foods in an open-aired room. We then went horseback riding up to the zipline area,... More

My family and friends and I returned to Borinquen for another stay, and we were delighted. We jammed in as many activities as we could in our one-night stay...a dip in the boiling hot tubs, nice dinner, ATV's and ziplining in the morning (plus the horseback ride on the way up to zipline). The included breakfast menu has three options,... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights april 25th through April 27th before heading to Tamarindo for 4 nights. It was so peaceful that I wish we would have went to Tamarindo first and they to Borinquen. Tamarindo was very busy. I was surprised that the staff didn't speak more english, but we got along fine. We went... More

Our stay was one of the most romantic trips we have ever taken. The peacefulness and quietness up in the mountains is very surreal. The hotel is usually pretty quiet due to the difficulty of reaching this destination. I consider myself a pretty seasoned traveler and my wife and I cannot wait to come back! From the pools, rooms and... More
