We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica. If you have a car, it is perfect. Once you get past the parking lot, it is beautiful with a clean pool and palm trees. My kids enjoyed playing in the pool. The SCUBA training in the morning, that others have mentioned, was only for about 45 minutes as we... More

Hotel Guanacaste Lodge is in a good location. The staff are helpful and accommodating which made the stay better. The accommodation is reminiscent of a European hostel. There is a fridge. There is no means for cooking - no BBQ or hot plate. Some lights in the room were burnt out and not replaced as requested. Hot water tap in... More

This was my second time staying here. The grounds are beautiful and quiet. The first time we stayed the room was too warm. It seems that they have replaced some air conditioners and the room was pleasantly cool. We enjoyed our stay.

When you arrive, the faded signs might make you think that you have arrived at the wrong place or that you made a mistake in booking here. BUT DO NOT WORRY. Just enter the property through the gate to the left of the parking lot. It is beautiful!! There is a main pool with a tree mosaic and an adjoining... More

We are a retired couple of modest means, so the price was definitely affordable (+) We arrived in a rental SUV from San Jose and drove past the entrance to the hotel. It seems a local lawyer had erected his street sign partially obstructing the hotel's entrance sign, so we eventually figured it out (-) The hotel's parking lot was... More

We stayed four nights here and were very happy with it. It's not in the centre of Flamingo but close by the beach if you don't mind a 10 min. walk. Nextdoors is a great Italian restaurant. It is a bit far away of everything but if you're seeking a nice and cheap option for only a couple of nights... More

We spent a little more than a week here. I would recommend you to have a car (to be able to explore more) but if you don't have on ether is a small supermarket next door, breakfast included in the rate (rice, beans, scrambled eggs, toast, juice, coffee and fruits) and there is a restaurant next to the hotel. It... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and had a really good time! The room was big and we had huge beds. Enough space for clothing and backpacks/luggage. The pool was refreshing and Anna helped us a lot with finding a Hotel for our next stay. Probably a bit difficult if you don't speak spanish at all, but I think Anna... More

Stayed here based on the trip advisor reviews. The receptionist spoke no English, the bathrooms didn't have shampoo and the shower barely worked, and the mattress were very old and uncomfortable. The final straw was the AC was impossible to adjust and it was either way too hot or way too cold in the room, which might have been tolerable... More
