I had made reservations for one night at Rancho Curubande, as a stopover before heading to Rincon de la Vieja park. A few days before we arrived, I emailed the ranch, letting them know that our flight was to arrive late (after 11:00 p.m.) so we’d be there after midnight because of customs, picking up the rental car, etc. The...

BED BUGS!! Went to bed with no bug bites and woke with 20 bites on my legs, which were under the covers, so they weren't mosquito bites. Also had the classic "breakfast, lunch and dinner" pattern. Walls are paper thin, so you can hear your neighbors' conversations. No one was electrocuted but there were exposed, unsafe-looking wires held together with... More

We made a last minute reservation at this location based on online Tripadvisor and Expedia ratings. However, we were horrified at the accommodation. The windows had transparent shade that you could see through, so no privacy. The A/C took forever to cool down so we were very uncomfortable. The bathroom had fire ants crawling all over the sink & toilet... More

We really enjoyed our 3-night-stay at Rancho Curubande Lodge and would recommend this hotel with good price/performance ratio. Rancho Curubande Lodge is run by a Costa Rican family, the boss speaks english very well, gives good recommendations and is up for a nice chat. Early in the morning the ranch is visited by many different kind of birds, which we... More

Rancho curubandé is a great place to stay. The owner Sergio is a great host and does everything to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are simple but clean. We had only one issue with the cold water in in the shower (only hot) but Sergio took care of it immediately. The breakfast is good and with plenty of fresh... More

Beautiful setting, with clean tidy accommodation. Nice communal space if you wish meet the other guests. Note: before arrival, learn the Spanish for "we have a reservation" as there is no English speakers around during the day. Also, the river, which is a must to visit, is a ten minute walk and not signposted. Walk past the hay barn, and... More

Only stayed here one night for the purpose of hiking Rincon de la Vieja National Park but would have gladly stayed longer. Quiet, restful, modern place on a working ranch in a great location outside of Liberia. Our room was large, clean and comfortable for a reasonable rate and included a very good breakfast. The hosts provided nice, shaded verandas... More
