The resort is beautiful, clean, quaint, and relaxing. The rooms, grounds, and pools are well kept. All of meals where delicious and the services was great. I can't speak about the drinks because we brought our own. There is onsite zip lining your is incredible! The tours guides were entertaining and friendly. The down falls were the drive to the...

My husband and I just got back from our unforgettable honeymoon which we stayed at Borinquen for the whole time. We had amazing adventures which included: ziplining, atving, hiking, horseback riding, seeing waterfalls, and siting Monkies! The location was gorgeous. The rooms were clean and well kept- we stayed in the Jr. suites. The only negative was the food wasn't... More

We only stayed here one night and upon pulling into the drive, immediately wished we were staying longer. Positioned seemingly in the middle of nowhere is this delightful and peaceful haven: quaint and rustic, as one would likely want from a Costa Rican vacation, but clean and inviting as well with romantic charm. I loved the grounds, the bungalows, the... More

We stayed here for two days, just before Christmas. This was our favourite resort during our stay. The grounds are beautiful and the villas are rustic. As a family, we enjoyed the hot mud, went horseback riding, and zip lined. This resort may be remote but we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves even though it was... More

We went to Borinquen the first week of March 2014. We've planned vacations where you jump from city to city. This time, we decided to stay in one location for 10 days. We left Bohrinquen a month ago, and I cannot think of a single thing to criticize about our time there. I confess I am extremely hard to please,... More

We stayed March 10, 2014 for 4 nights. All of the reviews are pretty much dead on. Great place, secluded, fantastic rooms. Tours are amazing, we went horseback, zip line, ATV and wife had a spa. All were first class. The problem we had was the hotel screwed up for our bus ride back to the airport in Liberia. We... More

We stayed here for 2 nights immediately after landing in Liberia. I agree the road is a bit rough but worth it. We loved the zip lining right on the property which included a 20 minute horseback ride there. The guides were great and there are 2 easy runs to practice before you travel over the gorge to see the... More

Unfortunately, we spent only one night. We promise to be back for at least three nights. The location is beautiful, our room was precious from our balcony we spot many different bird species and a beautiful sunset and the surroundings are spectacular. The resort was comfortable, great for relaxing and had the most gentle and kind staff. We couldn’t have... More

One of the roughest roads I've been on to get there, but worth it. A little worn, but the staff makes up for any wear with attentiveness and helpfullness. Food is good, not great. Atmosphere is fabulous. This is not a 4 star resort. This is a wonderful getaway spot. Great massage, pool gets busloads every day to hang out... More

Plan to stay for a while. There are horseback rides, Zip-line tours, and the spa/mud bath, pools to enjoy. Lots of wildlife, and nice separate duplex bungalows with patios to sit on and just enjoy the views. Resort covers a lot of territory so be prepared to walk lots if you want to explore. A tranquil place well worth the... More
