This is a really clean, safe but above all, comfortable and beautiful place to visit located in Limón. I was here for 3 days and I have to say I liked it.!! The hotel has a large beach and also a swimming pool, small green areas where if you are lucky you can admire beautiful sloth bears. They include breakfast and also have lunches. It has spacious and comfortable rooms and excellent attention from the staff of the place as well. A wonderful experience and I hope to be there again very soon. I highly recommend a stay at this beautiful and cozy hotel.

The promotion photos are totally misleading. The place is isolated,in a poor area, stripped wrecked cars along the highway , no visible security anywhere. The parking lot was not secure. They are in the process of building a 6 foot chain link fence around the hotel building maybe to prevent access from the grounds and beach area . We knew it was not a safe area and left although we had prepaid . The staff would not refund our money, had to phone a head office that stated we were fabricating our facts although the person had never been to the “resort “ . Fortunately we found a. Reasonable person at Visa who honoured our good record and was able to refund our money and start an investigation of this place and its false advertising.

Response from MICHAEL GRIMES, Owner at Hotel Playa Westfalia
Responded 8 Jul 2021
Hi Gabby; Unfortunately, your arrival was right at the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic. With everything going on, I instructed my manager to take certain steps to protect the property and see what we could do to keep some kind of income stream during the upcoming time of problems. She was able to find a government agency that needed to remodel their offices in Limon and was willing to lease out the hotel for 1 year. If there was a fence when you were there, then it was for them at their request since they handle domestic violence cases. I am sorry for your idea that the area is unsafe as we haven't had any problems except maybe minor disturbances from our own patrons at our bar. I am curious as to what "Head Office" someone called as that is my only property LOL, and there is no home office and nobody who works for me that has never been to the resort. Are you certain that your review is for the correct hotel? No matter, I am sorry for any inconvenience that you endured and hope that if you ever come back to the area you stop by and check us out "Post-Pandemic".

I stayed about a week here and found the staff wonderfully accommodating. Willing to go well beyond any typical standard to make me feel welcome, at home and enjoying myself. The staff here became lovely friends in a matter of days. Each of the staff made such a kind effort to help me regain my lost Espanol it was quite touching actually. Sloth sightings in the backyard, private secluded beach, nice pool, comfortable ac rooms and fast WiFi connection throughout and in rooms. Would happily stay again.

If you are on business in the town I would suggest that you stay here. 15 minutes drive to the city. The hotel situated in Westfalia. It’s a small hotel with fantastic staff. They also speak English. The rooms are very basic and comfortable. I had a double room with a nice comfortable bed. Big bathroom. Breakfast is nothing special but it is tasty. Dinner is nice and they have some nice things on the menu I will definitely be back

Wonderful place for a group of 8 touring Costa Rica. Don't let the sign fool you, once you pull into the property you'll be surprised to see how big this property is. The garden we had to walk through gave you that feeling of being in the jungle and when you get pass, it opens up to the pool area and restaurant. Pass the pool and restaurant is access to the beach with a sitting area under the coconut trees before you get to the ocean. The room accommodations were adequate for our needs and really enjoyed having the suite at the end of the building overseeing the pool/restaurant area. Also had a great view of the ocean in the morning. Hopefully you'll get a chance to see the resident sloth as we did during a rain storm
