The hotel allows you to enjoy a convenient and relaxing stay in Liberia. The accommodations are well kept, service is good and the location is optimal as you can enjoy a lot of different places around the Liberia area. Not a fancy hotel but it will most definitely suit you if you are looking for a simple, good and convenient...

We stayed two nights at Espuelas after our late flight and before our earlier flight. The hotel is not at the airport, the only one close to the airport is the Hilton one, but this one is 15 minutes away on the way out of town near Hwy 1. The cost for taxi is $25. The rooms are pretty clean...

Las Espuelas is a rather disappointing choice- it is located about 20 mins drive from the airport and 15 mins drive from city center in a rather isolated location. The rooms are dated, with weak and occasionally defective air conditioning, the beds are fine, the overall feeling is of a cheap but clean hotel. The garden is well maintained, the...

We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica. The hotel is clean, right off the highway, quiet and safe. It's a budget hotel, so we didn't have any expectations that it would be fancy. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent.

Disappointed in finding a bare essentials room. Hot water pressure barely strong enough to take decent shower. No hand towels. AC was weak and took 3 hours to cool the room. Best was a surprisingly good meal in the Restaurant.

Enjoyed two nights here on arrival to Liberia. Beautiful grounds and pool. Comfortable beds. Some road noise but mostly muffled. Family friendly. Headed off to Playa hermosa from here after friends arrived. Better deal than big airport hotel.

Stopped for the night, early departure from Liberia airport. Breakfast is available from 6am, fruit, breads, cereal, coffee and eggs to order. We were a little disappointed as it seems our discounted booking on Orbits put us in rooms at the furthest point from reception and the car park. Strange as the hotel looked very quiet judging by the restaurant...

My title says it all as do many of the other reviews. This is not a place that wows you. It's simple and basic. Dated for sure. The towels are following apart and frayed (in our bathroom). We didn't have an ice bucket but others in our party did. When I asked the restaurant for a cup of ice so...
