We stayed at Hotel Javy the first night of our trip to Costa Rica two weeks ago. The staff was welcoming, and some spoke fluent English. Room very clean with good AC. A tropical storm came through during the night, but the staff took it all in stride. Delicious breakfast.

I stay here whilst backpacking through Costa Rica. It is located in the outskirts of Liberia. Excellent bilingual staff. The courtyard was well stocked with lots of plants and greenery. The room was great. Solid wooden furniture and clean surfaces. Breakfast was well cooked and prepared. I would definitely recommend.

This hotel is run by locals & is more Costa Rican than the larger more expensive hotels. Much like a hostel, rooms have more than one bed, are basic but with air-conditioning and a good shower. Rooms are cleaned every day. We enjoyed the location, a bit outside the city centre (walkable), in a residential area close to restaurants.

First the positive: the reception staff were excellent. Hotel Javy is in a Liberian neighborhood festooned with security barred businesses and homes. In addition most have barbed wire. Hotel Javy is surrounded by walls, barbed wire, and a gate. The property is showing its age. The beds were very uncomfortable and rock hard, and the pillows somehow seemed like half pillows. The towels were threadbare. Our showers were a tad over cold water. There was a phone mounted on the wall outside our room that rang often during the evening hours. The room is small; there were 2 desks but no hangers or dressers. We had booked two nights but canceled the second night. The WiFi didn't work for half of the time we were there. Breakfast was included and was typical Costa Rican fare. We only paid around $50/night...and got what we paid for.

I am writing this review to update correct my earlier review of Hotel Javy on the booking.com review. We contacted this hotel on very short notice when taking a friend to a hospital. We checked in very late and did have a restful much need sleep. The hotel is very clean, secure and fair priced. We had an issue with a receipt and after posting my frustration on the first review I was immediately contacted by the owner who apologized sincerely and corrected the issue. I have tried to alter my review or update it in the booking.com app but it doesn’t allow us to do that. Please stay here, it is just what is needed.

I will not stay anywhere else but Hotel Javy when I travel to Liberia. The staff made my stay so memorable by helping me out when I was really in a bad situation. I will always remember their kindness. Not to mention they have the best breakfast and cute, quaint atmosphere!

Located in a not very nice and quite run down neighborhood about a half-hour walk from downtown, getting into the hotel and checking in was a bit of a chore. When we located and reached the sliding iron gate of the property there was no bell and we had to call the hotel number a few times for the lone staff lady on duty to open the gate from an inside control (every time you enter or exit the hotel you have to request for the gate to be opened). Checking in too took time because of language issues and the lone lady staff, who was very sweet and patient, had to call the owner more than once to confirm our reservation, type of rooms we had booked, room price, etc. Otherwise, the rooms were clean, large, comfortable and well furnished, and the bathrooms were clean and basic with good hot water; and there was adequate parking inside the gate. Breakfast was yummy and filling.

We booked for two reasons: the Tico ambiance and TripAdvisor rating. Upon arrival the steel gates were locked and the neighboring truck repair shop was hard at work. The property sign was in taters. The neighborhood had deteriorated into a back-street hotel. The facility laundry location was full of rust and dust. The check in desk was dilapidated. Our room was clean, yet the beauty of the garden cried desperately for attention. The furniture of the welcome porch was not in the same condition as the posted photos of years ago. It was saddening to see how devastating the Covid-19 has affected this friendly Tico family run establishment.

The hotel itself was fine, although it's in a sketchy neighborhood. The owners are super nice and the rooms have lots of beds. But do not try to pet the dog! I went towards him and put my hand out and he bit me and tried to bite my brother as well. They said he's normally super friendly however he seemed aggressive towards other guests. Currently sitting in the hospital getting rabies shots, don't go near him! Also, make sure not to park under the mango tree or mangoes fall on your car.
