The scenery was amazing it was great to go into the Hot Springs and see all of the trees and the greenery around it. The only part that I did not like was that we had poop in our beds and in our sheets. We also had to fight termites and ants through the night

The property was in a great location, rooms comfortable, and food and staff at restaurant was excellent. The bad part is the front desk staff are very shady. They accept cash or credit card. We even called and asked to be sure, But on arrival the guy wanted us to pay cash. We said we’ll pay with the card since it’s accepted, but he protested profusely, and said he would knock off $20 if we paid cash but he refused to give a receipt until we checked out. So we did, 2 days later when we were ready to check out, the lady at the front desk accused us of not paying and was very RUDE!!!! Later we went back to finish the check out. The guy was there again and said the women was crazy and he said we are ok. But still refusing to give a receipt. Finally he agreed, but the rest said we still owed the money. He wrote on it , canceled. I said thats not enough and finally got a correct receipt with $0 balance. Extremely frustrating and crooked.

We were looking for a place close to the Liberia airport that still felt like Costa Rica for our last night because we had an early flight the next morning. This hotel was a lovely option. It was pretty rustic after our time in an all inclusive at the beach but it was clean and tidy and it felt like a little cabin in the jungle! The pool, poolbar, river and hot springs were great. It was the rainy season and we were only 2 tables at dinner, so we had the place to ourselves! The property is pretty big and we did not see 1/2 of it but the check in was pretty early and we got time to see the parts we wanted. Spa was closed. Covid has cancelled their mud baths and massages for a while longer. Dinner was good. Service was great. It is about 25 mins from airport, out in one of the national parks near Liberia. It was very quiet and out of the way. Felt more 'Costa Rica' than a Hyatt across the road from the Airport, but it depends on what you are looking for, right?

Great stay at a beautiful place in nature.
Just a beautiful place surrounded by nature just outside of Liberia. We stayed there for an early morning flight as the airport is only 23 minutes away. The pool and the hot water pools are amazing. The grounds are really well kept and the staff is super friendly. The also have ziplining, mud bath and other activities on the property. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Love the fact that they are eco-friendly.

A place to keep kids entertained while we awaited an afternoon flight the next day. Food sounded great on the menu but in reality left a lot to be desired. I asked staff if the Caesar salad dressing was made in-house, was told yes, and when it arrived it was almost inedible with an off putting flavour and croutons made from packaged white bread. Pesto was not fresh (brown) and our pasta had a half cup of oil pooled on the bottom. Lots of room for improvement in the kitchen.

This was my third time staying here. I love to stay here the day I fly into LIR (or the day before I fly out). It is quiet (even with a tour bus filled with guests!! Filling up the place) and clean and gives me a necessary tranquility in these traveling days that allows me to transition from the hustle and bustle of traveling to the pace of a PuraVida life and back again in a gentle way. (The first time I stayed here, the brochure in the room was helpful to me in understanding the history and how to show respect for this country and it’s people). The Colorado River calls to me and is so well preserved and displayed here. You don’t want to miss it! There are many options for activities, good food and enjoying the natural beauty of Costa Rica as well so you can get a last minute kayak, spa or zip line in before heading to the airport which is only 20 minutes away. Love, love love 💗 this place and the people who keep it working. I was sad to see the one Restaurant by the river was closed this time. The Guanacaste tables and chairs are majestic and the views are amazing. This space would make a great place for a special reception or family reunión event.
