Positives- the staff was very friendly, the grounds were beautiful, and the food at the restaurant was great. The rooms are very spacious and had air conditioning and a safe. Negatives- my first room was terrible. The room was not clean (animal droppings everywhere) and the bed linens were very dirty. The amenities were very scarce and outdated. I was... More

La Pacifica is a working farm. On paper, there's lots to do, wi-fi works perfectly and staff are very polite and helpful; BUT: --- The pool had some veggie growth in it, directly under the surface. One of our group, a microbiologist, advised against getting any of the pool water into one's mouth, and even diving under the surface. Another... More

Our bungalow had character and there was plenty of room. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was nice. It all felt very clean. There was an outside covered patio which was nice to watch the passing wildlife. Luckily the wildlife was outside not inside :-) Good swimming pool. The food was good. There was an inside air-conditioned restaurant... More

Canas on the InterAmerica road seems a little bit out of everything interesting in Costa Rica. When googling the hotel location you are just wondering what you could expect of such place. Actually it is a pretty nice place. The hotel is a vast park, with lodges very far from the noise of the road. The pool is quite big... More

Probably more suitable to a wedding or ceremony than a tourist stop-over. Nice private park (with occasional wild deer) and nice bungalows around the property. A bit difficult to find off the main road, amidst the works in progress along the trafficked highway.

Great and unique property about 45 minutes from Liberia Airport. Great spot for the first night in Costa Rica, as you don't want to drive after dark. The property has beautiful little cabins throughout, which we found to be spacious and clean. Saw monkeys, deer, iguanas, snakes and lizards (and even found a snake with a lizard in its mouth)...

We were so happy we came across this place, in Canas. We chose this place because of it's proximity to Rio Celeste. We could have stayed closer, but did not want to pay the extra for convenience. The drive to and from Rio Celeste to the hotel was well worth it. the hotel is located on a preserve which has... More

a little dated. unique setting, unusual rooms. Beds were squeeky. tv too small. Showers difficult to regulate. Deer and howler monkeys outside the door. woodsy location but highway near.spacious grounds. it was built as a retreat for a former Costa Rican president a century ago. Still has the feel of that time. Charming and not expensive.

This place was a hidden gem in Canas! We could not have been more pleased. We were there for 5 days. Our room (S3) was spacious, clean and cozy. I was so impressed with the bathroom with the open shower. We sat outside on our porch every evening drinking wine, enjoying the breeze and listening to all of the amazing... More
