This review is a bit late as stayed in January 2016. But we enjoyed the hotel so felt it deserved a review. This was our first stop in Costa Rica. The arrival was really welcoming as we were greeted by live music and a refreshing fruit juice. The room was basic but just what we needed, clean and a comfortable...

Great hotel to spend a few days. We loved the hot springs, and we enjoyed hiking. The food is pretty good, but gets tiring after a few days. I would come back to spend more time hiking the volcano. All of the staff was very helpful.

Rooms are nice and food...

Scenic location, open air restaurant, great hikes nearby. Rooms are basic, breakfast buffet is nice, but after one day we were really tired of the bland lunch & dinner choices. Bring along a picnic lunch if you can. Pool is refreshing.

My partner and had the pleasure of staying here for several nights and were highly impressed with the friendliness and generosity of the staff. The food is good, the pool nice and the hot springs that the Hacienda owns are sensational. The hot springs alone are worth the stay. ;)
