This is a beautiful property, good access and paved roads up to the hotel entrance. There are parking spaces available in case you decide to drive, the property is very extense so be prepared to walk a lot or you can also request the internal transportation from one place to another. Rooms are fine, however these are a little outdated,...

The hotel (aka Rancho Las Perlas) is nicely located in a quiet valley, with beautiful grounds, a huge thermal pool, and pleasant restaurant. Not much hiking on the grounds, but a great place to relax. From what we could tell, it was the most appealing hotel that we saw in the Orosi valley. We were disappointed with the "suite" (wood...

This was not too good experience really I was hoping a better place, the wooden room have problems with hot water, TV and the next room was to close so you hear all the noise and if you are lucky like me and my wife you end up with a group of noise guys having a party until 4 am....

The entrance gate of Rio Perlas has a touch of the grandeur you might expect from a hotel that gives itself 5 stars. But that's where it ends. It may have been a 4 star hotel once (at the most) but now it really is no better than an average 2 1/2 star hotel. Everything is touched by the humidity...

Lovely resort, two swimming pools one is colder water to refresh, another is thermal spring water for healing. Restaurant on site--good food. Have not seen the casino (was being built when I stayed there). Quiet and very affordable.

With a small group of walkers (Costa Rica Coast to Coast) we stopped at this amazing location to have a meal. Some of our co-walkers decided to stay, whereas we returned to San Jose. The service at the restaurant (Rancho) and the Taberna del Capitan was extremely friendly and efficient. The food was good and ample, though of the invariable...

We went to Rio Perlas for a weekend in May and really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this hotel. It is quite a large property and they take you in a car to your cabin- necessary as some are quite far from the reception and up steep pathways. You are not allowed to take your car beyond reception- one...
