“New hotel, you pay for location...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The hotel is new, clean and comfortable and provides free shuttle to airport (4 min ride). That said, we found the hotel to be over-priced: it is more than double the price of any another hotel in Liberia including transportation to airport (it takes 15 min from city to airport, about 20$ Cab charge). We were annoyed to get charged so much for the few hours we stayed, without even enjoying breakfast. In addition to the high room charge, we found it greedy to be asked to pay extra $ for filling out the exit tax forms (no charge at airport).
A/C was noisy (located inside the room)!!

Room Tip: Get 10$ off when booking at front desk (no prior reservations)

This Hilton Garden Inn is modern, clean and friendly. The restaurant is quite nice, and features Chinese cuisine specials, prepared by their Chinese immigrant chef. It is literally five minutes by free shuttle to and from the Liberia airport. It has a decent hotel-style gym and a small attractive pool. The rooms are comfortable, and familiar to any traveller who has stayed in Hilton hotels in the United States. The hotel also has a nice breakfast buffet, with the customary hot and cold foods, as well as typical local foods and an omelette station. The breakfast buffet was included in our rate. However, if you are catching an early flight you may miss the breakfast as the buffet did not open until 6.30 am. Overall, a nice place to stay at the airport.

Room Tip: I stayed on the first floor. The room was quiet and comfortable.

Right across the street from airport.
Very Clean, very modern, must be a brand new hotel.
Staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
Food is good and they offer a breakfast you can take with
you for early flights.

Room Tip: Upgrade - not too expensive and nice to have the extra room for packing.

We had to stay here one night just following the recent quakes as we couldn't stay at our resort on the beach anymore, The Hilton is great! Comfy beds, free wifi, nice restaurant and bar, rental car and tour desk, and very accommodating staff. It's a great place to be based out of exploring Costa Rica. If we do Liberia again, this is where we'll stay!!

Due to extreme circumstances, we actually did not stay in the hotel before we left Costa Rica. I heard a lot of good things about the hotel and the management team is fantastic, esp. the manager, Allan Chevez. He was on top of everything and we correspond very efficiently via emails. Next time when I go to Costa Rica again, I will definitely stay there. It's very close to the airport and they are very personable.

After a week in Santa Teresa, we stayed here for our last night in Costa Rica. This hotel was terrific. It was nice to feel so accommated. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was so welcomed as our trip was during the first week of August. The hotel has a great bar and restaurant and a nice gym. We really took advantage of the lovely pool.

The free shuttle to the airport was great. I definitely recommend The Hilton Garden Inn to anyone flying in or out of the Liberia airport.

Room Tip: We had a great view of the pool from our first floor room.

Stayed here the first night I arrived in costa rica and it is a really great solid hotel. It says 3 stars but it sits much more like a 4 star. Great staff at the front desk help me get sorted for my onward hotels not to mention a handy car rental place at the front desk.

Great breakfast as well!
