Stop here to eat a nice dinner because I didn't want any fast food before we check in to hotel, my dish which I had was Ropa Vija was great and my husband dish was great too. Really happy with the food form here. Next day after my back surgery I told my husband to go pick some food up... More

Don't change a thing!!! I was always told "If it's not broken, don't fix it"!!! Jerlene and Coco could not have been friendlier, the grounds and room could not have been kept any cleaner. Richard the owner, a very pleasant soft-spoken man, runs a nice, comfortable, peaceful ship, and we are already talking about our next trip back!

My friend and I stayed here last week and I would love to return. It was the perfect, quick getaway from busy NYC. All credit goes to Richard, the owner. We were having dinner at the Seasons restaurant on our first night, when Richard stopped by our table and asked about our plans. We had an idea of what we... More

After having no hot water and very uncomfortable beds in San Jose all week, this place was paradise. However, looking back, I would have thought the same thing even if we weren't so desperate for a nice place to stay! Really nice and accommodating staff, big, clean rooms, and beautiful grounds. We also enjoyed waking up to the iguanas every... More

I stayed at Arco Iris for 2 nights at the beginning of June. The hotel was great before hand about helping me set up transportation from the Liberia Airport to the hotel, and even helped me quickly make changes when my flight was delayed 10 hours. In fact Richard, the owner, stayed up waiting for my late arrival and gave... More

We stayed here for a week. Richard, the owner, was super nice and very accommodating. I was meeting a friend here and he ended up missing his flight to Costa Rica. Richard had set it up for a flower arrangement and a bottle of champagne be waiting in our room for me. Every time we saw Richard, he made a... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Arco Iris and I would recommend this place to anyone. The hotel is far enough from town to be quiet but close enough to easily walk. Very nice rooms and grounds. Staff was very nice and accommodating.

Our stay was very good. Richard the owner was very accommodating and even let us borrow his umbrella! He and the other staff were very willing to give us suggestions on excursions and areas to visit nearby. The hotel is a short walk to restaurants and the town however if it is raining can be a very messy experience because... More

We stayed at Arco Iris for 4 nights/5 days at the end of May. We loved every minute of it! The hotel is small (9-10 bungalow/rooms) and it has great charm. We took a shuttle (Ecotrans) arranged through the hotel from the Liberia Airport. Upon arrival in Liberia, there was a driver with a sign with our name on it.... More

We stayed at the Hotel Arco Iris for 8 nights in April. The short version is this hotel easily met our expectations, and offers excellent value for money. I will start by commending the hotel for their reasonable cancellation and booking policy. I provided a credit card with my booking, but was not required to pay anything at that time.... More
