Just ended a 10 day Costa Rican extravaganza with a 2 night stay at the Hacienda Gauchipelin. The room it's self was basic, bed was comfy and showers were hot. It was a little loud at night (lots of kids running around) and in the morning (dogs barking, doves cooing). Only booked in to this hotel to do the adventure...

This place is one of my favorites in Costa Rica, the weather is perfect, you are in contact with the nature, beautiful landscapes, amazing waterfalls, many animals as lizard, birds, monkeys; also, they have many attractions as canopy, canyoning, tubing, walking, thermals. The rooms, the pool, the restaurant and the bar are really good. I've been there 4 times and...

It was such a nice place to stay! I came with a friend and her 5 year old daughter. It was so nice to stay in a place that was so easy. We did not have a car and a taxi out there is kind of expensive, but once you are there you are all set. There are shuttles to...

This hotel has lots of adventures to do. Breakfast is included that good. the only thing is the taxi from airport is $70. I spend two days and had a great time. I recommend this hotel if you like the river, horses, canopying, and lots of fun stuff.

Overall, our experience here (4 nights) was very positive. The room (superior room) was comfortable, clean with big shower. The location is excellent and setting is beautiful. The very well cared for property is just outside the park entrance and itself is a very large, park-like area complete with waterfalls, hot springs, trails, etc. The staff are helpful and friendly...

Stayed here for two nights in January 2013. Ours was a standard room, and it was just that: small shower, small sink, and toilet, with nowhere to put anything in the bathroom. The room had one tiny chair a double bed and a single bed. Bed sheets are the thickness of old hankies, pillows are old and tiny. The room...

Hotel is based around the activities and although the staff were friendly and helpful it was a busy hotel with a lot of day visitors. Room was nice and it was very quiet at night.

Hello Ann R, thanks for reviewing Guachipelin on TA. We are happy to know that you enjoyed the silent at night and the waterfalls and the horseback rides.

Fabulous place. Stayed 2 nights and could stay more. Nice retreat near the national park. The receptionist Anna was absolutely lovely and upgraded our room. The rooms were very clean and the shower was good! Great value for money. No options for dinner outside the hotel and the in-house restaurant is very simple.

We only had one full day to spend and opted to go on the canopy tour offered by Guachipelin Hacienda Adventure Tours. It was AWESOME! We also hiked into the Rincon de la Vieja National Park and that was short, but worthwhile! The accommodations at Guachipelin Hacienda were great and the food was good. Pura Vida!
