The Hotel Playa Westfalia is a wonderful hotel. We stayed there for five nights and immensely enjoyed the beauty of the Caribbean coast and the warmth from the hotel staff. Everyone at the hotel was extremely nice and helpful and eager to satisfy all of our needs and desires, from beginning to end. The hotel management is well organized, and...

Hotel Playa Westfalia is an excellent choice for business travel to Limon, Costa Rica. It is the best hotel in the area and the food and service is good. The rooms are well constructed and the bed offers a rewarding sleep.

From the moment we arrived, we were totally charmed by the entire property. Diana greeted us so warmly, and made sure we were happy with our room. We stayed in the master suite on the second floor. It was a beautiful room! My favorite room was the spacious bathroom with all the colorful tiles. The bed was very comfortable, and...

I found the Hotel in my journey down the Carribean Cost side of the country and checked in to see about spending a night as I was quite road weary. Well, long story short , I ended up staying the entire week and plan on returning again and again. Diana and her Staff saw to it that any and every...

This has to be the nicest hotel in the area, a couple of miles out of town. The manager, Diana, is charming and will make you feel welcome. The outdoor restaurant is modest but the rooms and ambience excellent. The beach sand was dark and not hospitable in December but there is an attractive small swimming pool.

I think this hotel is one of best values anywhere. It is a very nice facility and the staff is even better. The hotel is small enough that they can and do give you their personal attention and you feel like you could be the only people there. The location is beautiful and entirely distinct from other areas of Costa...

I was there on business. I'd tried two other hotels... the first was awful.... horrible food, no internet, no mobile coverage.

At first, I was skeptical because I wasn't able to make a reservation through Expedia or a reputable booking site, but I made reservations by phoning the property directly, and boy was I ever glad I did. This is a gorgeous hotel, newly constructed in 2007 with excellent attention to detail and craftsmanship. I personally think that the rooms were...
