We stayed here for part of a tour during our honeymoon. They definitely know how to treat their honeymooners! We had a amazing villa that I could have easily lived in and their resturant is very romantic with live music. I can't wait to come back.

The first impression was the right one : Impressive but posh The hotel is remote and access is not easily. Not great location if you want to visit Rincon de la Vieja. Re the rooms, they looked great but the A/C did not work. Then no hot water and finally the wooden separation between the communicating room was not sliding....

my family returned to Costa Rica last week and found this amazing resort tucked ino the mountains. The resort is truly beautiful! Well maintained lanscapes spread across the rolling hills, pool, hot srings and hot mud areas. Cars are restricted to the lower parking area. This adds to peace and tranquility of the resort. My family stayed in a villa...

We stayed here only one night, but enjoyed horseback riding, zip lining, the natural sauna, mud baths and mineral pools. The property is gorgeous. It would be a great spot for a weekend retreat. I would not recommend a long stay here due to the seclusion from any other restaurants/shops/etc... The room itself was a bit drab and the restaurant...

We stayed here for two nights during our trip to Costa Rica. I loved Hotel Borinquen and our positive experiences here were so great that they almost made me forget about the negative points. For that, I almost gave Hotel Borinquen a 5. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it. First of all, this hotel is...

And I mean the beds in the bungalows. We had a very good experience in Borinquen, and all the good comments are true. Only we are a family of 4 with "kids" of 19 and 21 and the beds (I guess 140 cm - referred to as double) are a bit too small for two persons to be comfortable. And...

We stayed here for three nights during our trip to Costa Rica. The place is truly amazing. The villas were comfortable and had everything we needed. The views were amazing. The pool and spas were fantastic. The road leading to the hotel was an adventure, as it is located about 30 minutes off the highway on a bumpy dirt road,...

Our trip came during the beginning humid time of the tour season (June). Since this was not the busiest travel time for summer guests, it made for a quiet stay and an amazing experience! Beautiful is an understatement! Amazingly gorgeous is getting close. In a few accurate words to compliment this bird’s paradise, it is the most secluded, tropical, couple’s...

So, I have mixed emotions. Had my husband not gotten sick on our honeymoon (from the FOOD. a bacteria that added him to the list for the DPH when we got back. Campylobacter, check it out - from poor food handling), I would have given this place 5 stars. We spent 5 nights there, and he didn't end up getting...
