The rocky, windy dirt road [complete with fun experience having our car in the middle of cows being herded] made arrival take a hour or more---jarring! What we needed was an easy to use room, pool, sauna, spa. What we experienced was a difficult to manage place. The benefits of isolated lodging were not enough to make up for the... More

First, the hotel is great. It is located in a middle of huge land they own. The individual bungalows are very cute and well dress with tree, palms, bamboo… You have a nice balcony (with only one hamac…). There is a lot of staff on the property to run the hotel, the spas, restaurant and all the activities. We did... More

We stayed here 4 nights over Christmas in a standard bungalow. The room was quite large with two double beds and 2 chairs and had a balcony with a table, two chairs, and a hammock. There is a mini-fridge in the room which was empty (so before you get there, it's a good idea to stop at the big AutoMercado... More

Borinquen is a hidden jewel of a resort on the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. It is located on a neutral geothermal area. The grounds are beautiful. The staff is incredibly nice. The main lodge is lovely with excellent food. We enjoyed the steam and the hot mineral pools. We also did an ATV ride and we did the zip... More

What a wonderful place to visit on our first trip ever to Costa Rica. The grounds were exquisitely kept...we saw the enormous upkeep needed to keep a resort in shape when it's in the middle of a moist, damp rain forest and they were on top of everything. Our bungalow was romantic and well kept with so many little touches... More

My family booked two nights at Borinquen Mountain Resort for 11/23/14 to 11/25/14. I booked a Junior Suite. I booked this room in 2/2014. In August of 2014 I was charged to my American Express card not only the Junior Suite but also 2 bungalow rooms which I did not want. Beginning in 2/2014, I called as well as emailed... More
