We stayed in a suite which was vey comfortable with TV. Wifi is available in reception. Would have given 5 stars if it was in rooms. You pretty much have to eat in the restaurant but the food was quite acceptable and reasonably priced. There are lots of activities available but also trails and walks for free. Butterflies were memorable... More

Our family of four stayed at the Hacienda Guachipelin from July 12-15, 2016. The tours that we did were awesome, but this review is not about the tours, but the hotel experience. We had about the worst hotel experience possible. Our room had no hot water whatsoever, during our entire stay. Different guests told us tricks that they used to... More

Stayed for 2 days in 2 rooms early July with young children. Overall had a great experience with multiple adventures and nice people throughout. As we were leaving though, we got charged $40 a piece for 2 pool towels that were not returned to the front desk. We weren't told that was needed and further only did not do so... More

READ THE WHOLE REVIEW BEFORE MAKING A DECISION! I stayed here for one night as part of a tour package. We did all the activities before checking in that evening. The zip lining was safe and an awesome experience. We then did the horseback riding. It was a very long ride, my behind was so sore the next day but... More

We showed up without reservations and ended up paying more than what was shown on expedia (in the past you'd get a better deal that way in Costa Rica). But we also had AC, which most other rooms did not have, though AC is not necessay in the evenings with the windows open. There is a shuttle that will take... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our trip to Costa Rica. The hotel is very ice and clean. The room had a kind bed, a full size bed and a twin which was perfect for my family of 5. The rate was reasonable and included a buffet breakfast. The bathroom was a fair size, unfortunately they... More

Our first visit we stayed 2 nights, I wish we had stayed 3. As to the accomdations, they are fine as others have stated. We had one really good meal and the others were average. We ordered a la cart and shared and the servings were plenty. We saved money this way. On to the great things about Guachipelin! We... More

Guachapelin is much more than just a hotel as they own most of the surrounding land as well. As a guest of the hotel, your access to all their sites are included in your stay - there are multiple waterfalls you can hike to and swim in and hot springs with mud baths. They are also very close to the... More
