We have a great time with good staff and great food

Would recommend Fri, May 15, 2015
Our stay were great. The staff were very gentile and prompt to respond to our needs. the service was great. The room was clean. The beach and the pool service were great. The only problem I had was mosquito bites and areoplane connection were too long. Otherwise everything was great. We visit Coco beach and did some shopping which was great and the sunset tour. Thanks

Great place to stay! Rooms are well appointed. Wonderful staff. It's not the fanciest all inclusive but it is good for those on a budget.

Excellent Value

Would recommend Wed, Dec 17, 2014
We were looking for an all inclusive for the last 2 days of a 12 day vacation in Costa Rica close to the Liberia Airport. We found the perfect gem to meet our needs. Great Pool, Beach Access, Activities, Entertainment. If staying for longer, I would have preferred a room with a view and not on the ground level - a choice when booking.

Good value, lacks beach front

Would recommend Sun, Jul 6, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, not too far from LIR, decent food & drinks, large pool, close to the volcano park and Coco beach Cons: Bed was hard as a rock, pool felt like warm bathwater, no beach. I think this would be a nice stay for a long weekend but a whole week would get boring.

Entertainment hint

Hotel Hacienda Adventure Park is about an hour away and is a great deal - zip line, horseback riding, river tubing, and hot springs for $85/person - a full days' worth of activities

Pura Vida vacation

Would not recommend Sat, Jan 25, 2014
Hotel does not have 4 stars service, The main concern was housekeeping: no shampoo, no conditioner, no body lotion, sometimes they did not clean up our room, did not bring clean towels, housekeepers did not understand English. The beach towel station was too far away from the beach and was closed at 5 pm, no restroom on the beach area. Food was good, but restaurant staff mostly does not speak English. Front desk people were very helpful.I would rate this hotel like 3 stars resort and will not stay over there next time

Would not go back

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 25, 2013
This is the first time I've given a review in my many years of travel. I hope I can prevent someone else from making the mistake of booking at this place. The room they tried to stick us with was horrible! I immediately said something to the front desk person and was told they wouldn't have another room for 2 days. It smelled so badly of mold and mildew that we didn't sleep one hour that first night. The next morning I demanded they move us the next day. Finally, they moved us to a room that wasn't disgusting. They also allowed small children the last weekend we were there!

small hotel .nice staff

Would not recommend Tue, Jan 29, 2013
Ok we got ripped off on the cab ride to the hotel, had to speak to manager of hotel as they wanted to charge us 50 dollars twice. The hotel is nice but small. The beach is dirty and the pool cloudy at all times. I got drunk and did go swimming in it. I wouldent return to the place. One. Good thing was our room was really nice.

Great location, lacking service

Would recommend Tue, Jan 1, 2013
The hotel and surrounding area are beautiful. The scenery alone is definitely worth the trip. The hotel is very nice, but seemed under-staffed, and what staff there was often did not follow through with requests. The buffet wasn't great, but the a la carte restaurants (included in the price) both served excellent food. Here, too, the small staff marred an otherwise great experience, as service was slow, and seating was very limited. When we arrived at the hotel, our porter informed us that housekeeping would supply us with coffee for our room, and restock our mini-fridge with water and beer every other day throughout our stay. Neither of these things happened, and on our last day we didn't even receive washcloths. All these negatives in service are outweighed, for us at least, by the beautiful scenery. The hotel is filled with beautiful landscaping, and situated right on a picturesque beach. It's a short drive from the local airport, and many tour providers congregate on the beach each day, both of which are very convenient. We would go again, but if mediocre food and bad service outweigh beautiful scenery, this may not be the resort for you.

Attractions

The horseback riding and zip-lining tour at Borinquen resort in the mountains is incredible, and only about an hour from the hotel. Views were stunning, and staff at the ziplines were very friendly.
