Wonderful stay (we will be back!)
What a wonderful gem of a hotel! The rooms are large and comfortable and you can’t beat the view from the balcony! The breakfast in the morning was a wonderful addition (delicious!). Mathieu was a fabulous host and was easy to communicate with for pick up from the airport. We will definitely be staying at Hotel Pibi Boreal again.

Landing spot for CR
Excellent hosts, very receptive to feedback. Everything was perfect - great breakfast, great view. Short uber rides to lovely alajuela and Santa barbara. Truly enjoyed our time.

Small, beautiful, and secluded
We had a great night stay with Mathieu's hotel. He was very welcoming, providing a ride from the airport, a tour of the property, and a delicious breakfast. We wished we could have stayed another night on our way out of the country.

We had a 1 night stay at this hotel. It's more of a B&B with a modern twist. Mathieu and Nidia were great hosts. We were happily surprised with a pretty amazing breakfast before we left the hotel as well. Highly recommend a stay at this location. Thank you Mathieu!

Wonderful hotel
Stayed in hotel first night in Costa Rica before driving to playa grande the next day. It is quiet, can hear nature and the balcony view of the jungle was amazing. The host was very friendly and helpful. He provided a breakfast next morning. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

Very good 8,0
Cozy and naturally quiet
Stayed here for one night on the way back from Panama. Mathiu offered us continental breakfast in the morning and was a great resource for restaurants and local places. The hotel itself is a smaller one, cabin-style with amazing views from the porch. Only small notes: no TV or AC in room. However, wasn’t a big deal for us due to short stay. I will be happy to stay again with my family at this hotel.

Top spot to recover from the jetlag
Great place to stay for a couple of nights after our flight. It's not far from the airport. Mathieu arranged our pick up and drop off, and was very helpful and informative. The rooms overlook the forested valley and there is plenty of wildlife, birdlife in particular, to catch the attention. Breakfast was delivered to our door each morning. Wifi was good. When we next return to Costa Rica we will definitely include a stay here again.

If your thing is big glitzy hotels with impersonal service and a long drive from the airport then Pibi Boreal is probably not for you. But if you like a secluded, friendly, charming place close to the airport (with free pickup and drop off provided) then you will love Pibi Boreal.
