We are a couple in our sixties and just got back from Liberia, Giardini de Papagayo Resort. (March 26th.-April 9th.
It is a small resort which we like, and it had many improvements in the last 6 months. Our room was nice with a view and a small balcony. (We paid for standard room but got one with balcony)
As everybody says, the people are wonderfully friendly and most speak some English. Our bartender Marvin, was great, he speaks good English and is very friendly. The drinks are made with fresh fruits, which was great, and the white wine was good too.
The food was fine, but not enough varieties in salads and deserts.
The fish was very good which was served with other meats everyday. There are many tours you can take, we took the ones from the hotel, Monteverde, Arenal, Paulo Verde, Canopy tour and Mega Combo tour, they were all very interesting and the lunches were very good on those tours.
The tourists at our resort were in all age brackets, more young people, I would say. I just wished that people would tip the waitresses and waiters a little more, we do tip at home but for some reason it's not done there.
We do plan to go to Costa Rica sometimes in the future, but probably in a different area. We don't repeat same places because there are so many places in the world to see.
We did enjoy Costa Rica very much and would recommend it to everyone.
