This area of Costa Rica offers very few hotels and most are down right frightening. The Westfalia is a breath of fresh air and the only decent hotel within 40 miles of Limon. It has clean, comfortable rooms, safe and secure location, and extremely friendly staff. They launder your clothes for free and the food is excellent.

I travel at least 9 months a year for business, so I know a thing or two about hotels. The beautiful location and tremendously friendly staff made me... More

This is by far the best hotel in the Limon area. The grounds are beautiful, rooms comfortable and clean, food healthy and fresh, and their staff was friendly and helpful, they make you feel at home.

What a wonderful place to stay!! I had business in Puerto Limon for one day and it was my first time in that area. Like most savvy travelers, I researched Trip Advisor to get the opinions of others.
