This resort could be great but it falls short on so many levels.The setting and views are beautiful. I've stayed at different resorts at all ends of the spectrum. Do not have a problem with economy when this is the expectation. We booked the junior suite which is described online as built for comfort with luxury in mind. Ridiculous! The... More

We came for one night and ended up spending four mostly because the area and hotel has much to offer apart from the regular emeneties of a hotel. It seems as though this place had known better days in terms of its overall condition. Rooms are a bit run down and we ended up changing a room during our stay... More

We just got back from our stay at Borinquen. Since it was green season, the resort was pretty empty and we were upgraded to a bungalow. We saw Aguitis, Armadillos, Howler Monkeys and lots of beautiful birds. We took a horsebackriding/zipling tour which was just breathtaking. The horseback riding was so peaceful and beautiful as we rode through the mountains... More

This will be a pretty negative review, so let me start by saying management compensated us for our inconveniences during our stay, and this property could be amazing, but it falls short on so many levels. We were attracted by the website and booked a junior suite for the three of us. the description is " The Junior Suite is... More

After 4 days on the beautiful coast of Playa Conchal, our family of 5 were looking forward to staying in Rincon de la Vieja. We picked Borinquen Mountain Resort & Lodge, after having researched it on TripAdvisor, fully aware of the mixed reviews. The property is nestled in a beautiful location with awesome views and lush greenery. However, almost everything... More

We stayed two nights at Borinquen and really loved it. The staff was friendly and helpful, the restaurant and dinner excellent and the Spa with hot pots and hot mud was just fun. We enjoyed horse riding and zip lining in the hotel area for a reasonable price and had lots of fun with the guides. PURA VIDA!!!

We chose this resort upon recommendation from friends who had stayed here, and we were not disappointed. We spent 2.5 days here, which was the perfect length of time for us. We stayed near the top of the resort (114 and 115), which meant lots of UPHILL walking, but we viewed it as really good exercise (and lots of it!).... More

Thus is the sort of place, you'll either love or whinge about, depending on the sort of traveller you are! When we read the reviews it seemed like the whole world turned up every day to do all the horseriding and zipwires, etc. This was NOT the case when we were there (Sun-Tues). Yes, minibuses do turn up but they... More

We visited this resort with friends during 3 years as part of our Costa Rica trip. The location is really top and well integrated in the local nature. The infrastructure is however old and no longer at level. The mountain resort naming is not longer appropriate for this facility in my view. The rooms are big but not so clean... More
