If you enjoy sleeping on cement blocks with old thin scratchy sheets that won't stay on the bed, sweaky fans, old rough towels and bad food this is the place for you. We had a Superior room and if it was superior I hate to see a regular room. The cleaning staff spent no more then 5 mins cleaning rooms,...

We stayed in a deluxe room at Hacienda Guachipelin. The rooms were spacious, clean and up to date. We had a hamock and bench right outside our room which was nice to relax in. Buffet breakfast was very good. Situated in rincon de la vieja which was convenient to the park.

We traveled all over Costa Rica and Hacienda Guachipellin was one of my favorites. Rooms were very nice and clean. The restaurant was buffet style with lots of variety and good food. The adventure tours is something I will never forget which including tubing, horseback riding, and ziplining. At the end of the day we relaxed in the natural hotsprings.

I had a great time during my stay at Hacienda Guachipelin. The staff is very friendly and do a good job of making you feel "at home." The rooms and facilities were all very clean and up to date. We loved the Adventure Tours, especially the tubing activity. I enjoyed the beautiful premises and views that it has to offer.

We enjoyed a short stay, taking advantage of the hot spring and mud bath and the nature trails. It was very comfortable and we felt secure. The people are unfailingly pleasant. The breakfast was ample and the view is quite nice. A terrific way to begin the day.

Mossy57 we appreciate you taking the time to review Guachipelin. The hot springs and the volcanic mud is one of the main reasons for visiting our property. People think that Rincon de la Vieja is dry forest , but it is very green. We like to have trails for people to enjoy morning and afternoon hikes. Our staff is mostly...

Along with two friends, I just returned home following a 9 day trip to Costa Rica, culminating with two days at the Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin.

I was tempted to give this spot 1 star, based on a horrendous experience with their complimentary shuttle, but that would have been unfair. Our superior room was quiet and very clean, with a hammock right outside the door. People working there were, overall, friendly and helpful, especially the sweet young man at the desk, and Fernando, the Restaurant manager....

Quiet, spacious, spotless rooms and the courtyard with amazing huge Guanacaste trees was full of birds every morning - awesome! The food was excellent, and we spent 4 days there and found the buffet breakfasts, lunches and dinners were all very tasty and variety was great (not to mention beer was very reasonably priced!) The staff were all genuinely friendly...
