We only stayed here one night. Our room was of a very good and spacious size. Located in a park like area it was nice. Beds were comfortable, bathroom of good size and clean! Pool area with bar was really nice. We had a nice time relaxing! We didn't have dinner here, we went into the village. We had dinner...

We had the best time during the Mega Combo tour. We started out horseback riding down to the river where we did white water tubing (this is a lot crazier than rafting, trust me!), zip lining and then finally to a mud bath with mineral spas. I have never pecked so much adventure into 1 day. It was amazing. All...

We booked this tour from Gecko Tours at Riu beach. We paid $130 a person for a private tour - two people. Our guide was Christian. The ziplining is fine, but the real action is the white water tubing through the rapids. The rappelling is one section of rock about 30 feet down and then you climb up to the...

First off, we did not stay at this hotel, but rather, were picked up at our spot in Tamarindo and taxi'd out here for a day adventure. Our taxi driver, Henry, was on time and super nice. We enjoyed chatting with him and also just relaxing on the hour and a half drive out to the location. When we arrived...

Stayed with our two grandchildren. Right on the Canyon with lots of things to do. The room are in separate cabins with good bathrooms. The breakfast is excellent and interesting with local foods. Very near the Park so you can get started when it opens.

We stayed here for two nights. Unfortunately we stayed during low season and there were very few guests staying. Therefore the lodge lacked any personality. I can imagine with all the activities available at the lodge it can become chaotic in high season with day guests. Rooms are basic as are most in Costa Rica but clean and spacious. Each...

The location of the lodge/cabanas is fine, being close to the Rincon de la Vieja park, where we walked two beautiful trails. The lodge itself is nice, with a good pool and friendly staff. At the same time, it didn't feel as charming as some of the other places we stayed at in Costa Rica, probably due to the size...

The main thing about this hotel (like most others in the Rincon area) is that all the activities are right here. Without leaving the property you can zip line, run the river, horse back ride, etc. Unlike some hotels, this one doesn't seem to accept the large tour buses of people coming in from Liberia for the day. Kind of...

We visited Costa Rica this month and having been at a brilliant hotel previous to this we arrived here and its terrible! We arrived for lunch which is overpriced at 15 dollars. Alot of the options were limited and tasted poorly cooked. You can choose to pay at the end of your stay or per sitting we chose the latter....
