Simple hotel to spend a night after a ling flight

Simple hotel, nothing special, a little bit worn out, though. We stayed for one night only after a long flight to Liberia. The hotel is close enough to the airport and for the price we paid it was ok.

Good place to stay before catching a flight

Location is great if you have an early flight out of Liberia . The breakfast is the usual Tico style but nice that it is included in the price of the room. Problem I had was the air conditioner did not work. Not a big deal because it we not hot out. But the real problem was the fan. It was either the fan AND light on or both off. I could not turn the fan on in the night when it got warm without the light turning on with it! Would recommend only for a 1 or 2 night stay to get to the airport in the morning.

Beautiful grounds!

Check in occurred without a glitch; friendly enough staff; room was simple, but clean; quiet after 11pm; appreciated the ceiling fan; breakfast was very tasty and enjoyable; we had a lovely walk after breakfast, saw some beautiful birds and iguanas, the pools were lovely, great location

a night in Liberia

I needed an inexpensive room for a night in Liberia in the town and easy distance from the airport. Best Western El Sitio was perfect - a $20 cab ride from the airport, a spacious and breezy room and a sustaining breakfast. Very adequate.

Friday night disco until 4AM

I only needed to stay one night in order to catch an 8AM flight from LIR to MIA. unfortunately, I got no sleep at this ugliest of Best Westerns because the property hosts a Friday night disco that doesn't shut down until 4AM - thump, thump, thump! - which explains why they put me in a room farthest away from the "amenities". never got the wake-up call I requested. there was no hot shower at 5:30AM?! at least, the A/C and ceiling fan worked
