We spent one night here on our way to Nicaragua. The location was perfect as the shuttles all meet at the shopping square which is right next to the Best Western. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was quiet. The wifi worked ok and the hot water was great. I had the best shower of my...

Rooms were clean. The grounds ( including 2 pools and hot tub ) were quite lovely..huge trees, lots of plants, numerous deck chairs. Staff were pleasant and attentive. Free breakfast was kind of bland. Gallo pinto, scrabbled eggs, pancakes. Dinner was a disappointment. Caesar salad consisted of lettuce,small pieces of toast. Some bacon and a few pieces of cheese. Apparently...

The hotel was clean and the staff was professional however upon arrival a note on the bed informs you that when you checkout your room will be inspected before you leave. We informed the desk that we only had one towel, no shower curtain and few of the electrical outlets worked. The sliding windows in the room on the ground...

I booked this hotel, because I had a good experience during my last trip to Liberia at their restaurant. The hotel web site advertises high speed internet access, internet access points in the room and hot water. I received none of these during my stay. The wifi in my first room did not exist. The front desk clerk informed me...

The employees are very considerate and helpful. The internet availability is poor. The cost per night is fairly inexpensive and a bargain compared to upscale hotel chains. The hot breakfast buffet is good. Two beautiful pool areas. Great place to stay when on a budget.

I wouldn't recommend staying here during any low season. IT was clear that there was an effort to cut on bills, as I didn't have hot water, the staff was a skeleton crew (very helpful, to be fair), and the restaurant was closed. Clean hotel, perfectly fine for a stopover, but not a good experience.

I stayed a few nights at El Sitio on two separate recent occasions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the grounds are very nice. The pool is quite awesome and breakfast is plentiful. The staff - once again - was extremely personable and helpful. Nice to have a nightclub across the street, too!

We stayed one night at El Sito after flying into Liberia. The kids loved the pool and the grounds were really pretty. But trying to sleep at night, with the sound of the disco going was impossible, and we had the air conditioner on high. We were probably the farthest room in the back you could get away from the...

The BW El Sitio is along the road to the airport so it is convenient but can be a bit noisy. My room was towards the back of the property so I didn't have any noise issues though. It's close enough to walk to downtown but if you have a car, you may want to drive. I'd stay here again...

Nice and freindly staff, great food at the resturant, laundry service, which could come in handy and a pretty good gym. a few things could be added to make the place rally good, some turist info and a mini bar, which we would have liked, just for the option of cooling...
