Found this hotel on our journey from one hotel to another. Very secluded, nearly drove past it, Glad we found it though. Staff lovely food and drinks lovely, views breathtaking! Wish we could have stayed a few days but we were booked in another hotel.

Hotel Playa Westfalia is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy with your family or partner! It is by far the best hotel in Limón and the management is incredibly nice and professional. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool is perfect, and the restaurant is delicious. Not only have I been to this excellent hotel many times over... More

...with the nicest, wonderful and helpful owners you'll ever meet. It's kinda tricky to find, but we probably would have taken almost anything after driving behind the fruit trucks in the rain for hours, in the dark. But ..what a super nice surprise, It's not the most fancy but you can hang out on a super big balcony or on... More

We booked this place last minute because of our early flight on Nature Air- I didn't realize before the trip the price of a cab from Puerto Viejo at 4am, nor the distance between there and Limón. I also made a mistake and booked for the wrong day (pura vida when traveling!) When we arrived though, we were greeted by... More

Lovely small hotel set in pretty gardens with lovely pool. Gorgeous beach but very strong currents so no good for swimming. Food was nice from a small menu, but staff left after 5 pm so no evening meal available. However, I was informed of this and staff prepared a delicious salad with drinks for us delivered to our room. We... More

The management were surprised to see us. The parking lot is fenced off from the rooms requiring a surpentine trek. We had lunch ( average ) and checked into our large but very dark room. Just two of us in a suite for 4. We ambled the beach, not very fine, but OK, and returned for a swim in the... More

We chose the Hotel Playa Westfalia because of its proximity to the Limon airport - 15 min taxi. No choice really, so we were very pleasantly surprised at the lovely property, very friendly staff, and spacious clean rooms. We left early the following morning, but we were served a nice lunch in their pool side restaurant, and we walked down... More

My sons and I travel around the world attending Moto GP races, so we know our hotels. While visiting Costa Rica we found this wonderful and amazing hotel located right on the beach, and just below Puerta Limon. Truly a piece of Heaven within the jungle.
