Yes, the Hacienda is about 30 minutes by road from the nearest town and yes, pretty much you will need to eat there. But you can see from the sheer number of reviews for this place that it can't be as bad as some of the not so good reviews are making out. If it was, the green line at... More

We hiked to two different waterfalls (in our flip flops) and then spent a few hours in the hot springs. After opening our pores, we then bathed ourselves in hot mud and basked in the sun to allow to dry! Our skin felt fantastic! We did all of this on our own so we lost some time due to poor... More

Let me first start off and say that this was the single most horrible experience I have ever had, and I travel for business weekly. I can understand the appeal of the place due to the location, however that by far does not outweigh all of the bad. It is about 30 minutes to the nearest town. That was not... More

We recently stayed for 3 nights after considering Borenquen and Blue River. The deciding factor was the location to the national park and shorter drive from Liberia, and because of that I think we made the right choice. We stayed in room 54 (superior room) and it was just ok. TV, coffee pot, typical stuff. The bed was hard and... More

There is a nice selection of things to do here, and about the best Zip Line/Canopy Tour you can find anywhere in this part of the world. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and very clean. We found the staff to be courteous and accommodating. I would stay here again when back in this area.

The hotel was far from town, in the middle of the national park, and we could have taken many more fascinating walks, if we would have had more time. The room was very comfortable with a nicely designed bathroom and a great bed. Breakfast was very good and the restaurant offered all the sounds of the surroundings, thanks to the... More

My husband and I had heard wonders about the tours that the hotel offered and were were not disappointed. In fact, it was more than what we expected. The canopy tour was breathtaking and visually beautiful. The white water rafting had enough excitement to get the adrenaline going but was also very calm and peaceful and super enjoyable!

The hotel is set in the foothills of Parque Nacional Rincon de la Vieja and its volcano crater, just under an hour away from the Liberia airport.
