I planned a 2 day 'stop over ' since my plane was leaving Liberia at 7am. The room was very nice and clean. Not sure what the noise complaints pertain to, since despite all the construction, it was very quiet. The pool and grounds were lovely. Breakfast buffet was excellent, but being vegan, the menu was very limited. However the...

Simple place, clean with AC units and actual hot water from the faucet. Worth the $30 we spent. Cool pool. Just request a room toward the rear of the property to avoid the construction noise in front.

The hotel is very convenient to the highway and hence an easy drive to the airport. The rooms were very nice. The AC and wifi worked well, but we can't say the same about the hot water in the shower. The pools were well maintained. It is a great place for kids as there is a large playground with swings...

We stayed on the way to Manuel Antonio & enjoyed the pool especially with its lovely grounds & the fine Tica breakfast . The room was large .comfortable & clean . The hotel is a wee bit out of town on the main freeway so we took a taxi in .

Really regret to have to post a poor review because staff was nice and price was ok. We had an early flight out of Liberia, just wanted something clean, cheap and close to airport. This looked like a good choice, half the price of the Hilton Garden Inn & some recent decent reviews. Turned out we regretted booking here. As...

The room was nice (much nicer than the Best Western El Sitio in Liberia) and it had a nice pool. Staff was friendly and helpful. If you've rented a car, I'd recommend this as a place to stay in Liberia. We didn't have a car, which made the location (a couple miles south of Liberia on the Pan-American highway) a...

I stayed four months this time and still consider this the best value for a Liberia stay. There are newly remodeled rooms for a slightly higher rate with ample space and modern appointments. The bathrooms are modern and well equipped, including a bidet. The older rooms are less expensive, more suited for a single or couple occupation, somewhat dated but...

This hotel is great. Very nice rooms, air conditioning, the tv is nice, hot water and it's very clean. I loved the Internet connection they have it for wings and is fast. The pool is great also. The restaurant is ok nothing special. The only downside is that is far from the town you need to get a cab.

I am hoping that this is poor, and I am going to have much better luck in Costa Rica. Very expensive meals at their restaurant considering the poor service and marginal food. The room was bad. No electrical outlets (very few, and hidden). No hand towels or wash clothes. Broken A/C. Thank God we are here for just one night....

My partner and I booked one overnight stay at this hotel. This is a great place to stay overnight if you fly into Liberia, and are heading out to other locations in Costa Rica the next day. The grounds were lovely, the room was clean and comfortable and the air-conditioning worked well. There was a beautiful pool where we had...
