“The place should be condemned”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

I wish I'd read the one other review of this hotel before staying there; other hotels in town were full, but had I known what the Wagelia was like before we booked in I'd have driven a long way to find somewhere else.
The rooms are awful, the bar and restaurant were closed (whether permanently or not I don't know) and the pool they proudly display in gude books and brochures was empty, and surrounded by broken tiles and exposed pipework. it is without doubt the worst hotel I've ever stayed in.
But its sister hotel, the Wagelia Turrialba, in the centre of town, is really very pleasant.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2009

This was a really awful hotel, the room was dirty, the water was tepid at best and the pressure almost nil. The second evening we had a rain storm (very common in this area) and the roof leaked badly, right by a light fitting. The receptionist was not surprised and gave the impression that this happens a lot. We were moved to an even shabbier ground floor room which was very damp, the hot water was no better but there was better water pressure. There was however exposed wiring above the shower head. The building was basically not up to the standard required for the climate in this area. We had dinner at the sister hotel in the centre of town and that looked considerably better. Avoid this place!!
