“Corporate hotel, good for flyout night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

This hotel is comfortable, but very corporate. Lacks any local character. The pool is great. Bed is great, clean and comfortable. Bathroom is very small. Pretty expensive for CR, and many other hotels are quite close by. Liberia and the beaches are less than half an hour away.

Room Tip: Any room is probably fine. The pool view rooms (north side) are on the airport side of building. Th...

This hotel is great for a night or two when you arrive or are leaving Costa Rica via the Liberia Airport. The hotel is very nice inside and out. The lobby, rooms, gym, pool, and restaurant are all nice, clean, and what you would expect from a nice Hilton. We stayed here the night before departing Costa Rica and were very happy. They offer a shuttle to the airport which is less than an hour away and the shuttle will run when you need it to. The rooms are very good size and include a mini fridge, microwave, work station, great working A/C, huge clean bathroom and great comfortable beds. The lobby and pool and very nice and well maintained. The restaurant is average with a pretty good variety but the food is ok and pretty expensive. We ordered the shrimp and crab ravioli which was excellent then we ordered the Costa Rican version of nachos and that was not very good and the worse was the pizza that were ordered with sausage and the sausage was actually a hot dog cut up on top of the pizza. But there is no other restaurant within walking distance and you are about 5 miles from the town of Liberia. So the only negative was the food but overall a great place to stay near the airport.

This hotel is close to Liberia airport and it seems that everyone stays there from a later night flight. The shuttle picks you up at the airport and races from the airport to the hotel a few times to get everyone in. The process takes very little time and the driver is very efficient. We were very tired and the check in process was very quick. The hotel is very nice and the staff very friendly. The desk clerk called our rental car agency in the morning for us to tell them to come and pick us up. The hotel does offer rental car service which I would try next time I'm there. The surroundings of the hotel are very dry and not that scenic but we left early the next day. This is a very nice way to get rested up after a long flight before you start your vacation.

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for one night and it was memorable, the services I used were excellent, the staff friendly, the room clean and very well equipped especially with kids as it had a little microwave. I would definitely stay again in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We stayed on our arrival day. It was very convenient to the airport and car rental facilities. Budget picked us up from the hotel. There is a Hertz representative on site.

We went outside to the pool - far too many flies (we were there in early February). Could have used a few fly traps somewhere. Swallows were swooping around - my wife was buzzed a number of times while in the pool. I realize this is an eco-friendly area, but I didn't like moving around on the lounge chairs swatting at the flies that were landing insistently.

For dinner, we had rice with chicken - mostly rice with a bit of chicken. Once we got the car we were able to venture out and didn't eat again at the restaurant except for breakfast (included due to Gold HH status). The breakfast was similar to other HGI. I would recommend they put raisins out for the oatmeal, instead of figs - maybe something got lost in the translation.

We were given a room near the elevator (as per my profile). The room was set up for disability access - roll in shower and lots of room. The room was large enough to have two under window A/C units.

Given alternatives in the area, I would stay here again.

We stayed one night at the Hilton Garden Inn before our flight home the next day. The hotel was everything we expected. Very clean, great staff, nicely appointed rooms, great pool area. We ate twice in the hotel restaurant. It was ok. Not great, just ok. We bought into the breakfast and the breakfast fair was great. Lots of fresh fruit, cheese yogurt, eggs, waffles, omelettes and endless coffee and juice. Great shuttle service to the airport. Our only complaint about this hotel was that we were charged $10.00 to check in an hour early even though we were told the room was ready. Couldn't quite figure this out. Would definitely use this hotel as a stop over location on a return trip to Costa Rica.

The hotel was great, clean, modern, wifi, nice pool, across from the airport and nice staff. But don't plan on buying anything from the concession. We thought we would pick up a bag of Lay's potato chips for the room, it was larger than the usual size. They asked 5,000 colones or $10.00. Yikes, this was a bit of a rip off, needless to say we went chipless.

Room Tip: Bring your own snacks!
