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!

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 relaxing and beautiful place

Good place to get in touch with Guanacaste's wild life. While we were walking to our room a rabbit crossed our path. Iguanas and birds where often seen in the hotel grounds. Also nearby beaches are Tortugas nesting places. Hotel rooms are downhill so prepare for a short walk uphill to get to the pool, parking or restaurant. Beach Club is 2km away and in the same "Hacienda" is located JW Marriot hotel and some high class apartments/houses complex. There is no convenience store inside the hacienda so if you like some groceries you need to get to Tamarindo. I am costarican and this was my first visit to Playa Avellanas and it is now one of my favorite beaches in CR. Tamarindo and Grande are also very beautiful. My 5 years old son didn't wanted to come back home. He loved the place. Only low ligths are the road between Santa Cruz and Pinilla and the fact that we had to change room because the A/C was out of work.

Room has mini refrigerator and microwave. If you want to have sodas, snacks etc shop them all at once and avoid having to drive to Tamarindo every time you want something.

Hacienda Panilla's Hidden Treasure

We spent five days at La Posada as an affordable alternative to the nearby sister property JW Marriott. The rooms were very nice (included microwave & refrigeratory) and rates included a continental breakfast (rice/beans/scrambled eggs/plantains every day), free high speed internet in the room with a cable (WI-FI from pool, restaurant area), and free shuttle to anywhere on the Hacienda Panilla property including the beach club, Marriott, or fitness center. The beach club is awesome with miles of white sugar sand, lots of sea shells, and an affordable bar & restaurant. The pool at La Posadas was clean with ample lounging chairs and a bar area . On our walks we even saw howler monkeys! You can't beat the price for the location. Staff is friendly & helpful. The on-site restaurant is excellent and affordable. Lola's is nearby. Don't even consider staying here unless you have a 4x4--- the washboard gravel roads are bumpy with plenty of pot holes. Despite the challenging roads, I would defintely stay here again. There isn't much to do after dark..so if you are looking for night life, go somewhere else. If you want nature, quiet, and privacy with mid-range emnities-- I would highly recommend La Posada.

El Manantial (a local bar/soda shop) has excellent fried chicken and is only 1 kilometer away. Lola's is a short 2-3 kilometer drive with excellent and affordable food-- the famous potbelly pig is a big attraction!
