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...

We did not stay at the hotel but we did the All Day Adventure Package. Great time with the horses, white water tubing, lunch buffet, ziplining, and hot springs. Definitely for active people since they are all one right after another, not a la carte. Great time and amazingly helpful, happy staff.

We spent our first three days in the country here after flying into Liberia airport. The aircon didn't work in the room we were given - but they quickly moved us to a new room, and everything went well after that ! There's a nice little pool - great to cool down in. The restaurant feels like you're in the...

There are so many things to do around the Hacienda that you don't need to go to town. Dinner was not great, but breakfast was really good and local. There a waiter/bartender Joel, he is awesome and very knowledgeable about Costa Rica. If you meet him you will know what I mean. He love soccer and knows a lot about...

This is the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the Rincon de la Vieja, hike in the national park, check out mineral baths or just experience Costa Rica and all its natural beauty! Hacienda is about 49 minutes from Liberia airport-and a pretty straight shot. The roads are al paved leading to the hotel-so having a sedan...

My girlfriend and I stayed there for two nights. We went straight to the Natural Reserve which was really amazing, and the next day experienced the whole activities package, which was very enjoyable. However, service had nothing special and I have got to say I was very disappointed in the restaurant, which had low-quality food and inconsistent service. The room...

It served its purpose for an overnight stay. TV did not work. No social atmosphere. It was essentially on a farm. Look out for "visitors" (bugs, lizards) in your rooms. Breakfast was again just okay. No microwave or fridge in room. Uncomfortable beds. Hammocks out in front of rooms for free use. If I could go back, I would probably...
