This place was beautiful and has alot of activities to do within the property grounds. The hotel rooms have a nice hacienda look and feel to them but the beds are not the most comfortable, which wasn't a big deal after a long tiresome day of activities. The bathroom at one point had a bad smell like drainage but it...

We spent our first night in Costa Rica here. We received a very warm welcome and loved the character of the hacienda. Rooms were terraced cabins style and very comfortable. 2 large beds, large shower room and plenty of hot water, coffee making facilities and all rooms had chairs outside which looked onto an open space with trees. The breakfast...

We spent the first night and day at this hotel, on a 7 day Grand Tour of Costa Rica, with Thomson Holidays. We did not expect 5 star luxury, but after a 12 hour flight, this hotel was just what we needed to ease us into Costa Rican life. All the hotel staff were very friendly. The rooms are located...

We stayed here for one night during a tour of Costa Rica and went horse riding and river tubing, which were great fun. The hotel is made up of ranch style buildings and the working stables are right next to the rooms. The decor is in keeping with the rustic, working ranch feel of the place. We ate pizza in...

There are so many things to do at the Hacienda we did not even go to the nearby NP. The children liked the adventure tours (horseback riding, tubing, zip lining), we walked to all three waterfalls nearby. The hot springs are also a joy for everyone, especially the mud baths are great fun (to do or to watch).

When we visited this location we had just left the town of Samara that is filled with smiling faces and wonderful food. We didn't actually want to leave Samara, so that may have added to us being less than impressed with Hacienda Guachipelin. Upon pulling in, we almost left. Not because of anything in particular other than the vibe of...
