We stayed here for 6 nights. Eat the rice for breakfast it's the best. The juice is also fresh. The casino staff was awesome and have good ideas to help it grow. The water pressure isn't that great and ice machine never worked. If you are looking for a resort this is not it. If you are looking for a...

Liberia itself offers nothing kinda dirty and nothing. I did see homeless sleeping on the sidewalk. There is really no reason to come here. Bypass it totally. Now on to the hotel. Clean nice as tropical goes. Beds aren't comfortable neither are the pillows. Water pressure in shower ok at best. Its a budget hotel. I don't have high expectations...

Spent 3 nights here just for R&R--sleeping in, hanging around the pool, relaxing. Kiddie pool, too, and play area for kids. Excellent breakfast included. Rooms are pleasant. Pool is lovely. Easy walking to grocery store, restaurants, town. Apart from the included breakfast, you can't charge restaurant meals to your room tab, but they will deliver to room.

We stayed at this Best Western for 1 night because of the close proximity to the airport. The room was booked for 4 people through booking.com and a request was made for early check in which was later confirmed in an email. When we arrived at the Best Western, around the time we had requested, we ran into trouble. Without...

We stayed here for one night because it's not too far from the airport. The room was fine, the pool area was quite nice. There is also a crocodile pond ... we didn't see the crocodiles but that's pretty cool. The bed was comfortable. We were there on Saturday night and there was a club somewhere close by with thumping...

We prepaid this hotel on the Best Western site and were charged twice. Called BW and were told that there was nothing they could do as it was a prepaid. Got there late. The room was very basic. Bed uncomfortable. Upon checkout had to argue that the room as paid for and am still trying to determine if the charged...

I did not stay here but ate a few times at the restaurant. The staff in the restaurant spend more time on facebook than waiting on people. it is the only restaurant where I became sick after eating there in all of Costa Rica. Needs some attention! Could be very nice.

We had been to Liberia 17 years ago, and enjoyed it. With a good airfare from Delta ($233 from Minneapolis) we decided to abandon the -15 degree cold for a week. Delta had a "partner" series of hotels, and we picked this one--saving another 20% on the hotel. When we arrived, we found that it was the same hotel we...

This is an old run down hotel. The lobby has a shabby appearance. Bedroom is spacious, but no ambiance - everything has been painted black, but clean. No outlets for computers - have to unplug table lamp and crawl under bedside table to unplug bedside lamps in order to plug a device in. Good internet - strong signal. Very tiny...
