We spent 2 days at this hotel before a corporate event at a "5 star" hotel on the beach. In many ways,this was the better hotel. This is a casual place, including the "house dogs", the bar, the stable, the dirt road (last 3 miles) and the open-air reception area. It does not try to wow you with the facilities,...

This is a sprawling campus. Nothing too far, just enough distance between wings of the hacienda, restaurante, pool, etc to make it feel like a casual resort. The best breakfast place we saw in Costa Rica. We ate enough to skip lunch. Eggs cooked to order, lots of fruit, granola, meat, yougart, etc. They had good shuttle service to the...

we stayed with Sol Verde, and loved it. I did not appreciate how miserable the otherwise short distance between Curabande and the Guachipelin could be. The road from Liberia is now paved beautifully from Liberia to Curabande, and then the road is the same old miserable one the final 10 km. I suppose it shows I am getting soft, because...

The one downside that I hear continually about Hacienda Guachipelin in guide books is that it's a little touristy. I mean, did you come to Costa Rica just to be surrounded by other tourists? For example, I have no interest in going to Tamarindo because it's overrun by Americans. If you have other stops on your trip, I think it's...

Just ended a 10 day Costa Rican extravaganza with a 2 night stay at the Hacienda Gauchipelin. The room it's self was basic, bed was comfy and showers were hot. It was a little loud at night (lots of kids running around) and in the morning (dogs barking, doves cooing). Only booked in to this hotel to do the adventure...

This place is one of my favorites in Costa Rica, the weather is perfect, you are in contact with the nature, beautiful landscapes, amazing waterfalls, many animals as lizard, birds, monkeys; also, they have many attractions as canopy, canyoning, tubing, walking, thermals. The rooms, the pool, the restaurant and the bar are really good. I've been there 4 times and...

It was such a nice place to stay! I came with a friend and her 5 year old daughter. It was so nice to stay in a place that was so easy. We did not have a car and a taxi out there is kind of expensive, but once you are there you are all set. There are shuttles to...

This hotel has lots of adventures to do. Breakfast is included that good. the only thing is the taxi from airport is $70. I spend two days and had a great time. I recommend this hotel if you like the river, horses, canopying, and lots of fun stuff.

Overall, our experience here (4 nights) was very positive. The room (superior room) was comfortable, clean with big shower. The location is excellent and setting is beautiful. The very well cared for property is just outside the park entrance and itself is a very large, park-like area complete with waterfalls, hot springs, trails, etc. The staff are helpful and friendly...
