We stayed for 1 night at the Hacienda Guachipelin in February as part of a tour of Costa Rica. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Make sure you wear plenty of insect repellent at breakfast as we were eaten alive by very small black flies which all turned into very nasty bites.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 December 2016 via mobile

We stayed here as a family of four ( kids aged 8 & 10) whilst driving across Costa Rica in Dec 2017. This is definitely a place to stay and be active. It is not a chill out by the pool hotel- the pool is small, cold and shady, somewhere to have a quick cool off after an activity. It...

The adventure park was an amazing experience full of wonderful things to see and do, and we did many: zip lining, horseback riding, river tubing, mud bath and natural hot springs. Each and every one was a teat all by itself. The hotel and restaurant are also great. The room was spacious, the beds comfortable, the shower roomy, the bathroom...

We stayed at Hacienda Guachipelin one night. Good value and nice place. We loved the Adventure Day Pass activities, even though we skipped the horseback riding and the hot springs. The white water tubing was an absolute blast (our favorite thing we've done in Costa Rica) and ziplining through the canyon was really cool. I had read a lot about...

We used the hot springs after a couple of days of hiking in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. A few hours of soaking in the various pools and a mud treatment eased my sore muscles and recharged me.

My husband and I LOVED it here. We stayed 6 nights in Costa Rica the beginning of March, 3 here, and 3 elsewhere. Needless to say, we wish we would have spent the entire time at Hacienda Guachipelin. As soon as you get there the front desk staff greets you with enthusiasm and a refreshing drink. The rooms are nice,...

The hotel room was very nice but right up against the area where farm animals were kept so you get the real, ah, smell of the ranch. The restaurant was average. The property and surrounding area had loads to walk and explore which we really enjoyed. We did not do any of the tours but did explore much on our...

We stayed in Suite 2. It was a beautiful, spacious suite with floor to ceiling windows on two sides and a wrap around veranda looking out at nature. The bathroom is very spacious with a large walk-in shower.

Basic rooms on a farm estate but the beds were comfortable and the shower powerful. All you need for one night stop over. Waterfall, horse riding and river tubing all available within a mile or two of the hacienda. Food quite basic but ok.
