Las Espuelas Hotel3.0 out of 5.0

Convenient location for traveling to/from LIB airport as there aren't many hotels near the airport (and the Hilton was not available). Definitely had more of a motel feel with a musky smelling room. Nice pool, good typical food at the restaurant, walking distance to a small (fairly deserted) mall, $25 for a taxi to the airport. Ok if you need a place to stay b/4 your flight.
Used this hotel for a night after arriving into Liberia on a late flight. Rooms were good and laid out well. Breakfast was adequate. Location was great not too far from the airport and on the highway leading to La Fortuna area. Good choice for stopping over for a night before heading out the following morning. Although the hotel name flashes as `Bar and Restaurant, their bar was closed when we arrived at a little past 10 pm. Surprising!!!
Some people leave the cold of canada to spend months at this hotel! Food is great, jugo natural, real blended fruit, is a great refreshing drink. Big pool and well kept grounds. Air conditioning worked well. Staff were very friendly and accomodating.
The hotel is more like an enhanced motel. It's big and the outside area is quite pleasant (for example, there is a pool and some greenery), but it is essentially somewhere to sleep on the way to the Nicaraguan border. The rooms are accessed directly from outside. The rooms are fine, although if you get one connected to a neighbouring room by a door, you will hear EVERYTHING in that room. Could be a little cleaner (the towels, although definitely washed, were not spotless). The restaurant is decent, although they could use more staff, as the bartender/waiter was running around trying to keep everyone happy, but there for too many customers so the service ended up slow. Again, the hotel is fine, but not more than that.
Room was basic but clean. Breakfast was included and good. Location was good, as we flew in late and didn't want to drive in the dark. We took a swim in the pool which was clean. Less than a five minute drive to restaurants.
The hotel allows you to enjoy a convenient and relaxing stay in Liberia. The accommodations are well kept, service is good and the location is optimal as you can enjoy a lot of different places around the Liberia area. Not a fancy hotel but it will most definitely suit you if you are looking for a simple, good and convenient lodging option.
I have stayed here many times over the last 15 or 20 years, name has changed, still excellent service and HELP , They have arranged car rental and pick up , Grey line pick up , fantastic location to visit volcanos, bird Palo Verde, look for reptiles in Santa Rosa,and check out beaches within an hours drive.....Staff Very Helpful ,GREAT BREAKFAST
We stayed two nights at Espuelas after our late flight and before our earlier flight. The hotel is not at the airport, the only one close to the airport is the Hilton one, but this one is 15 minutes away on the way out of town near Hwy 1. The cost for taxi is $25. The rooms are pretty clean and large. They give you free breakfast and it is pretty good...and we had a earlier flight and they made a breakfast for us to take...very nice! I will stay back if I need!
Our family stayed for a week here to prepare for our daughter's wedding. We held the rehearsal dinner and morning events before wedding. Management and staff where very helpful and accommodated our needs even from far away. Events went off beautifully. Rooms where clean , breakfast was delicious, staff very helpful. Grounds where well maintained . Swimming pool well kept. We would recommend this hotel to family or couples.
Las Espuelas is a rather disappointing choice- it is located about 20 mins drive from the airport and 15 mins drive from city center in a rather isolated location. The rooms are dated, with weak and occasionally defective air conditioning, the beds are fine, the overall feeling is of a cheap but clean hotel. The garden is well maintained, the breakfast choices are very limited but fine. Not a great choice overall.
