I have sent emails home to Canada, and friends in the USA, suggested to anyone if you want to relax, have super food, be on the beach, swimming pool, hot tub, wi-fi, great...

I spent several days at Hotel Playa Westfalia just south of Puerto Limon along the Costa Rica Caribbean coast. What a wonderful place to stay; the service, staff, food & overall ambience was extraordinary.

Sitting on your spacious, private adobe-style porch, looking at beautifully landscaped grounds and the moonlight over the ocean, sipping rum and coke after a scrumptious meal on-site, watching dogs play, with in-room coffee…..is this heaven, or what? Our visit was even more enjoyable due to Manager Deanna’s most gracious, competent, friendly and bilingual staff. This is the only place to...

I have to thank Westfalia hotel for all the wonderful service they provided, always looking after us, between my coworkers and I, we expend almost 6 months and we all agree that is the best place to stay in Puerto Limon. If you want to enjoy the best room, ask for the one on the second floor with the terrace...

This area of Costa Rica offers very few hotels and most are down right frightening. The Westfalia is a breath of fresh air and the only decent hotel within 40 miles of Limon. It has clean, comfortable rooms, safe and secure location, and extremely friendly staff. They launder your clothes for free and the food is excellent.

This was my second tour of duty in Costa Rica. First time, in the beginning of this year, I stayed at Playa Westfalia for three weeks and this time for 10 weeks.
