Las Espuelas Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica. The hotel is clean, right off the highway, quiet and safe. It's a budget hotel, so we didn't have any expectations that it would be fancy. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent.

Disappointed in finding a bare essentials room. Hot water pressure barely strong enough to take decent shower. No hand towels. AC was weak and took 3 hours to cool the room. Best was a surprisingly good meal in the Restaurant.

Enjoyed two nights here on arrival to Liberia. Beautiful grounds and pool. Comfortable beds. Some road noise but mostly muffled. Family friendly. Headed off to Playa hermosa from here after friends arrived. Better deal than big airport hotel.

Stopped for the night, early departure from Liberia airport. Breakfast is available from 6am, fruit, breads, cereal, coffee and eggs to order. We were a little disappointed as it seems our discounted booking on Orbits put us in rooms at the furthest point from reception and the car park. Strange as the hotel looked very quiet judging by the restaurant dinner occupancy and reception area. all in all, a convenient stop over.

My title says it all as do many of the other reviews. This is not a place that wows you. It's simple and basic. Dated for sure. The towels are following apart and frayed (in our bathroom). We didn't have an ice bucket but others in our party did. When I asked the restaurant for a cup of ice so I could drink my purchased wine in my room The waitress brought me an ice bucket full and apologized I didn't have one. Not big deal. This hotel is a place where we felt safe and comfortable to Try to relax before flying out of Liberia the following day. The staff were attentive. The restaurant did the trick. We just stayed on site to Try toRelax after 10 days of traveling Costa Rica. Decent pool area we lounged around catching some last rays. Saw some parrots in the abandoned property next door. Good breakfast that's included. Showers were horrible- freezing cold with bad water pressure. I sponged bathed basically and washed hair under running water as I could not tolerate the showers. Would stay again however with all of that being said while in transit to Or from airport. I would recommend and stress this is a no frills place with a good staff and gold included breakfast basically designing for before or after a flight to crash before carrying on.

We spent one night at this hotel before we fly back. The stuff was very friendly and polite and we were able to move in early than expected. Therefore we were able to spent an afternoon at the big and very clean pool. Our room (a very quiet deluxe room) was in the last of all the rows and it was big and clean. We slept very well and we were lucky that we find such a nice place for the night before we fly back. Even we have to leave the hotel by 5:00am the stuff prepaired us a nice breakfast to go (sandwich with ham and cheese and fresh fruits plus apple juice). We liked that place very much and we would go again.

On our tour of CR, we wanted to stop to see Rincon De La Vieja. We chose Las Espuelas due to the low cost and proximity to Liberia. Pros: nice staff, great pool, pretty setting and common areas, close to Liberia, A/C, television, clean room (floors, etc) great wifi. Cons: pretty much our room - very dated, the mattress and sheets were stained and the lighting was pretty bad. That said, the bed is the most important thing to me when I'm staying at a hotel so this affected me greatly. Given its price, I think it's exactly what you'd expect.

Situated about twenty minutes drive from the airport and five from the town centre. Rooms are spaced out in the grounds in rows. Good size room with bathroom, TV and WIFI. Friendly staff. Nice little restaurant with bar. Free parking. Nice pool. Get directions I had a bit of trouble finding it you have to go on highway and take the first U-turn and come back.

This was one of 5 hotel accommodations I stayed at during my Costa Rica vacation. Service here is good, staff is friendly and accommodating. Room and grounds are very clean. Frequently saw staff maintaining property and landscaping daily. I saw hummingbirds, lizards and butterflies on the grounds. I've seen some reviews mentioned noise at this location. This hotel is located on the service road of the Pan-American Hwy. Travel time is approximately 20 to 30 minutes from the airport by car. Taxi cost $20/$25 usd to from airport. I was in room #39. It was located in the back of the property so noise was not an issue during my visit. Breakfast buffet is complimentary and consists of the island standard fare of rice and black beans, eggs, meat and plantains. Overall it is a very nice, clean comfortable place to stay.

A nice place for a quick night, but there are better places in Liberia if you would like to spend more than a night. The new rooms are nice, although the air conditioning is quiet noisy. The place was really ridden with mosquitoes when we were there. the breakfast buffet is very basic and we were advised to only serve once. The staff was very nice.
