Wonderful Amenities for EXCELLENT Value

Great rooms, wonderful service and nice location. The amenities are immense, we didn't have time to see them all. The restaurant food quality was the only issue, the food was mediocre at best.

Good Experience

I would have given 5 on everything but there are a few points to improve: 1) Lunch Menu at the beach club needed more options. I ordered the beef dish 200g. I asked which type of meat cut it was, the waitress was clueless and she didn't go to ask (I had to explain her what that was and why I needed to know that in order to decide if 3/4 or medium) she just said, beef is beef is a good piece. I ordered 3/4 cooked and finally I got a well done 100g steak. I said to the waitress that it was not what I wanted, she said she would check and never came back. I must say that after a while someone else from the staff came and asked if everything was ok, I told him my story and he gave me a new dish, the steak was good, green areas are beautiful, and overall it was a nice experience. 2) The worst sangría at the beach club... Gin tonic was much better option to ask 3) The A/C at the room, made some noise all night long, I think it is important to check those details before you give the room to a guest. 4) Reservation said, a la carte Menu for breakfast, it was buffet. Omelette was good. (simple but enough breakfast) Good Service at the restaurat in the hotel. 5) Staff in general were very nice and helpful, the room was clean, the beach club area is very nice, the dinner was delicious, I ordered Tuna Steak.

Lovely Tropical Vacation

We chose La Posada because it was near a relative's home in Avellana. We were pleasantly surprised that the rooms are stand-alone bungalows. Our unit had a full kitchen and lovely huge bedroom and walk in shower. The food in the restaurant was good and the staff was friendly. We used the Beach Club and had a great Mother's Day brunch another hotel within the main property. We will definitely stay here again.

True Costa Rican Experience

We booked La Posada as we were attending a wedding there and had a wonderful time at the wedding as well as during our additional 5 day stay. The rooms were suites - with free fast internet, refrigerator, large shower baths, big-screen tv with ENGLISH HBO, and a nice sofa sitting area outside the bedroom. Large windows throughout made the rooms bright. Plenty of closet and drawer space for two people as well as 6 towels/day for 2 people -- we didn't use them all! LOTS of outlets for recharging phones, IPads, and camera batteries -- no adaptors needed. The staff were very helpful and booked our return trip to airport as well as a great nature walk, horseback riding through the forest and on the beach, and a very nice day tour to Arenal. Shuttles transport you to the Marriott for meals as well as to our favorite beach, La Playa Beach Club. Two other beaches are available by shuttle - Playa Langosta which was the setting for the wedding -- absolutely beautiful at sunset. Breakfast was included which was a great value for the package price we paid for prime time in January. Although there are more restaurants at the Marriott -- and we went to most of them as La Posada only has one on site one -- we preferred the more natural and private setting of La Posada as the place to stay for 8 nights. YES -- shuttles are needed - but if you pay attention to the schedule -- or give the driver a pick up time when being dropped off -- they are more then accommodating. NO NEED TO RENT A CAR here. The drivers also stopped several times so we could get good photos of the hollering monkeys-- we would definitely return and recommend the Guanacaste side of Costa Rica for a great blend of nature, beach, perfect weather (warm and no humidity) in January. Be sure to bring both bug spray and SPF #70 sunscreen too.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

The prettiest and most user friendly beach and pool of the three available at La Posada is La Playa Beach Club. There is an onsite restaurant with beautiful views of the beach and ocean, and great beach for bathing or boogie boarding, and an absolutely beautiful swimming pool surrounded by palms and an infinity side. You have to pay to use the pool at the Marriott -- beach is free -- and Playa Langosta which is very pretty too doesn't offer any food or rest room amenities and is further than La Playa.

Wonderful getaway! Beautiful hotel and surrounding beaches!

My husband and I , stayed in a Junior Suite. Our two boys, stayed in a double room, each had a queen size bed. Both rooms were very spacious, comfortable, very clean. La Posada Inn at Hacienda Pinilla, Guanacaste, has beautiful landscape, offers good restaurants, bus shuttle that take you to the beach, and other facilities that the hotel offers. I would definitively recommend this hotel!

Simply Bad Customer Service

Customer service is simply bad. We had some issues with our room but no one cared. Also cleanliness is not that great. At times dead insects were not removed after cleaning. Would not go back.
