This hotel far surpassed my expectations. The dining was better than any I experienced in Costa Rica - it was creative and well prepared. Service was also excellent - the staff was friendly and went out of their way to make you feel at home (especially Noe). The steam hut, volcanic mud and pools were amazing as well. Since there...

We did a tour to Borinquen and had the best time zip lining. Our guides were great and made everyone feel very safe and secure. The lines are very high and some are nice and long, wanted to do it again and again. The horse were great and we loved that they just walked home on there own after taking...

I traveled around Costa Rica for 2 weeks and found this hotel to be exceptional. Prior to this hotel I stayed at the Marriot in Guanacaste and San Jose as well as the four seasons. This hotel provided comfort, great service, and un comparable views of the mountains. The location is about 30 minutes from liberia and about 1:30 hours...

This place was amazingly beautiful. The staff were fantastic. I was meeting a friend who'd arrived the day before and when I asked to leave a message at the front desk, I was told he was at the pool! The casitas are fabulous, VERY comfortable king size beds with really nice bedding. Really nice bathroom. Very much a high end...

This place was amazing, although we went during the low season and no one was there, it was an amazing stay. The staff knows exactly who everyone is and they are super friendly. For food, they give you lots of food at each meal!! The only downside to this place was the amount of bugs, there were quite a bit...

We loved visiting this resort, even if it was only for one day. The horseback rides and zip lines were professionally done, and we felt safe the whole time . The waterfalls were a really serine spot to stop and soak up the Costa Rica tropical forest. The food was excellent, and the volcanic steam and mud bath were fun...

The setting is stunning. The view from our room up on the hill was beautiful. We also had a great day horse riding, zip lining, swimming, and using the mud bath and thermal pools. However, a couple of things could have been better and it's a shame because this could so nearly have been one of the best places we...

Beautiful property, great guides for horseback riding and zip lining. Lunch was served in a beautiful setting and was delicious. The thermal spa was very interesting and the grounds are spectacular. My son and husband loved the zip lining, and I am glad I did it, but may not do it again. Although apprehensive about the height, I always felt...
