Our family of 4 (us and 2 teenagers) got the all day adventure pass and had so much fun. We started with zip lining and loved the views over the trees, through the canyons, climbing on the rocks, etc. It was more than zip lining and even though I wasn't sure about the climbing on the rocks since I don't...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 December 2016 via mobile

We stayed here as a family of four ( kids aged 8 & 10) whilst driving across Costa Rica in Dec 2017. This is definitely a place to stay and be active. It is not a chill out by the pool hotel- the pool is small, cold and shady, somewhere to have a quick cool off after an activity. It...

We booked a "superior" room, but what we get was a dark chamber, whitout balcony and the windows directly to the stall, whit accompanying odor!! Never take the number 70!! The buffet (Breakfast and Dinner) or A la carte was fine. The National Park Rincon de la Vieja just a few minutes by Carl.

Everything was top notch but......maybe because of New Years period it was some enormous crowd! We took zip lining, tubing, horse back riding and hot pools. We merely had 30 min for hot pools at the end because it got dark and they closed it. Otherwise highly recommended activity!

After walking the paved nature trail at the Las Pailas Ranger Station, we paid more to see the Oropendola waterfall (short walk with suspension bridge). Very unique and beautiful waterfall with cold water but kids still loved swimming in it. We then did a "1 hour" horseback riding tour that was closer to 1 hour 45 minutes given how long...

The hotel featuring a variety of activities. Standard rooms are simple. No refrigerator. Very small safe (iPad) with a Biggggg key! In case of loss you pay 100 dollar!!! Little privacy, you have no partition with your neighbors. Ask a room in the furthest corner. Rooms are located along each other in rows. Restaurant: control (especially clearing) can be a...

The hotel is a typical lodge in Costa Rica: tile floors (quite slippery in the shower); comfortable beds; AC was good a bit Spartan but very clean. Poor lighting and mirrors hung quite low (hubby had to scrunch down to see himself to shave) As you are in the middle of nowhere we asked our driver to stop at the...

We stayed for 1 night at the Hacienda Guachipelin in February as part of a tour of Costa Rica. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Make sure you wear plenty of insect repellent at breakfast as we were eaten alive by very small black flies which all turned into very nasty bites.

The adventure park was an amazing experience full of wonderful things to see and do, and we did many: zip lining, horseback riding, river tubing, mud bath and natural hot springs. Each and every one was a teat all by itself. The hotel and restaurant are also great. The room was spacious, the beds comfortable, the shower roomy, the bathroom...

We stayed at Hacienda Guachipelin one night. Good value and nice place. We loved the Adventure Day Pass activities, even though we skipped the horseback riding and the hot springs. The white water tubing was an absolute blast (our favorite thing we've done in Costa Rica) and ziplining through the canyon was really cool. I had read a lot about...
