We stayed at the Javy both on arrival and departure into/out of Liberia. Compared with the big soulless airport hotels this was a great introduction into the real Costa Rica and the hospitality of the Ticos. The bedroom was spacious and clean with very effective air conditioning, and the property is secure with private on site parking. We loved both... More

My boyfriend and I are on a motorcycle trip from Alaska. After we spent 4 hours at the Nicaragua - Costa Rica border and drove through the heavy storm rain for awhile, we called it a day and looked for a good place to stay in Liberia and Hotel Javy was definitely so much more than just a 'good' place...

Let me first say that this is not a hotel this is a home away from home. My husband and I were traveling with our 2 1/2 year old son on our first trip to Costa Rica. We arrived at Hotel Javy at midnight and were greeted with open arms. Isabell the owner brought us in and made us fresh... More

If you are staying overnight in transit, the place will be fine for you. If you stay multiple days, and are not fluent in Spanish, it may be a bit challenging. The highlight of this hotel was the breakfasts with fresh mango juice, as well as the air conditioning in the rooms. We came to realize quickly the hotel was... More

I've stayed at Hotel Javy twice now, and can honestly say it's my favorite part of Liberia. Xavier and Isabel are both incredibly nice and gracious hosts, the free breakfast is superb, and the lush plant life in the courtyard creates a cheery, cozy environment in an otherwise loud and at times dirty city. I've been traveling in and around... More

Even under normal circumstances we would sing the praises of this wonderful, caring, family owned hotel in Liberia, Costa Rica. But we found ourselves in the most difficult of all times, our daughter was in a serious car accident and was in the ICU at Hospital Enrique Baltidano, in Liberia. Hotel Javy is located only a few blocks from the... More

I had a very comfortable 4 nights stay at Hotel Javy. Beds and bedsheets are replaced everyday....rooms very clean and the airconditioner is very good. The rooms are under the shade of big mango trees so it is shaded from the heat. It is fully gated and the breakfast is excellent. I am very happy to choose Jotel Javy for... More

Although we didn't have an awesome time in Liberia (not much to do, especially if you don't speak spanish!) but the hotel itself was great, clean, loved the fresh fruit, and the staff, although we didn't come across any english speakers that worked there (thankfully had a translating app) were sweet and smiley!

We stayed here on our first and last days in Costa Rica. It is kept very clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. It is set back in a side street at the end of Liberia, so it is a lot more peaceful than hotels closer to the airport. My only complaint would be that it is hard to... More

We stayed here our last night in Costa Rica and it was a wonderful experience. The woman at the front desk (also the cook and matriarch as far as we could tell) was one of the kindest people I met in Costa Rica, which is impressive considering how nice everyone is here. Her English was about as good as my... More
