There is no discussion regarding the beauty of this place. Great views, nice room. The activities are great. The staff is super nice and helpful. I emplore this hotel and all of Costa Rica tourism to not get too confident. What I mean is that some of the pricing is a little high. It should not cost $26 dollars for... More

I stayed for 3 nights with my wife and 2 daughters one 7 and one 10 months old. We enjoyed our time here a lot. The grounds and room were all great and we were upgraded to a better room upon arrival. The pool and hot springs were fantastic. The food was very good, maybe a little expensive compared to... More

This resort is located very near Rincon de La Vieja park less than 20km from Liberia. Anyone familiar with this area knows of the rustic nature of the roads and the remoteness of the attractions, so that being said, this is a beautiful-looking resort. The extensive property contains both beautifully manicured landscapes and remote trails. Sadly, the lovely rooms are... More

We only stayed for one night, but wish we could have stayed for a few more! What a property, with absolutely breathtaking views, and great amenities. The pool exemplifies what a "resort" pool should look like, and the hot thermal pools were very nice. This area has thermal springs and mud pots like you would see in Yellowstone, except it... More

We stayed here for a few nights after staying on the beach. The lower temperatures were very welcome. It's really nice that each "room" is actually a detached dwelling. We stayed at the one closest to reception, which we were very thankful for! The grounds are extremely hilly. It would have been quite a walk to everything had we been... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Borinquen from May 28th through to June 2nd and had a wonderful time. With it being the start of the rainy season, the occupancy level at the resort was on the low side and there were many times when we felt that we had the entire place to ourselves. This was really...

Crazy drive up steep gravel mountain road (rent a 4x4 if you're driving), but totally worth it. Beautiful bungalows, natural hot springs, volcanic mud, and lovely pool. Buffet breakfast with lots of offerings included. Dinner is la carte or buffet (delicious!).

Absolutely awful experience. Didn't get any sleep. As we were getting ready for bed, a large bug ran out in front us and I squashed it with my shoe. Then a disgusting hairworm started creeping out like a scene from the exorcist. Not even ten minutes later two giant spiders were crawling across our floor. We then started to notice... More

Where to start! Its located about 1 hr 15 min from Liberia Airport. It's up in the mountain in the middle of know where... The grounds are very hilly and well taken care of.

Visited Borinquen resort last August. It was perfect, more than what I expected. The fact that we were there on a weekday during slow season guaranteed peaceful experience. We had all the beautiful facilities to ourselves until afternoon and were able to enjoy everything offered with no line no waiting.
