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.

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.

Perfect getaway!

Couldn't be any happier with the way we were treated by the staff! Really nice environment, close to several beaches (not a walking distance option) but the hotel has shuttles that take you to them. The restaurants food was really good for what it was included. The prices for the food was very acceptable if compared to eating at a restaurant in the US. Would totally recommend it. If booking, make sure you have a car so you are able to explore. If not, you'll be stuck. Tamarindo is a town fairly close with good night life and perfect if you want to go shopping.

Very quiet. expensive restaurant. you pay extra for fitness.

The hotel is nice and peaceful. Almost too peaceful. You need a car to travel around Hacienda Pinilla. The fitness center will cost you extra $10th per day! AND you need to travel almost 4km to get there....restaurant has no value....very expensive and not that good. It is a good alternative if you do jot want to pay for the Marriott near by and if you take a car. Do not pay more than $130 for the room as it is not worth it.

Great Beach Club

My husband and I stayed at this hotel at the end of March 2012. The room had a kitchen sink, microwave and small refrigerator which was a nice touch. There is a pool within walking distance that is nice, but the nicest part was the beach club which is about a mile away and there's an hourly shuttle to take you there. It has a beautiful pool and is right on the beach. There's a smaill restaurant and bar at the beach club. The nachos were good and the drinks weren't as expensive as they were at the other costa rica hotels we stayed at. The location of the hotel is nice in that it's in a gated community. There is a JW Marriott in the same community, but it is 2 miles away. You can shuttle to it, but you have to pay $50 per person to use the JW's facilities. $40 of that goes towards food/drinks and the other $10 is to use their onsite pool. We tried to go into the nearest town, which is Tamarindo, and discovered that it's a $40 cab ride each way to drive the 12 kms from the hotel to the town. We decided to skip it and enjoy more time at the beach club.
