We spent one night at this hotel before we fly back. The stuff was very friendly and polite and we were able to move in early than expected. Therefore we were able to spent an afternoon at the big and very clean pool. Our room (a very quiet deluxe room) was in the last of all the rows and it... More

Pros: nice staff, great pool, pretty setting and common areas, close to Liberia, A/C, television, clean room (floors, etc) great wifi. Cons: pretty much our room - very dated, the mattress and...

Stayed here one night upon landing in Liberia. In case of any flight delays and to also give the kids a break before heading to the Arenal, we stayed here. For what you pay you can't expect updated rooms! Though you will find clean rooms and grounds! Plus you get a nice breakfast the following day!
