My family and friends and I returned to Borinquen for another stay, and we were delighted. We jammed in as many activities as we could in our one-night stay...a dip in the boiling hot tubs, nice dinner, ATV's and ziplining in the morning (plus the horseback ride on the way up to zipline). The included breakfast menu has three options,...

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights april 25th through April 27th before heading to Tamarindo for 4 nights. It was so peaceful that I wish we would have went to Tamarindo first and they to Borinquen. Tamarindo was very busy. I was surprised that the staff didn't speak more english, but we got along fine. We went...

Our stay was one of the most romantic trips we have ever taken. The peacefulness and quietness up in the mountains is very surreal. The hotel is usually pretty quiet due to the difficulty of reaching this destination. I consider myself a pretty seasoned traveler and my wife and I cannot wait to come back! From the pools, rooms and...

The resort is beautiful, clean, quaint, and relaxing. The rooms, grounds, and pools are well kept. All of meals where delicious and the services was great. I can't speak about the drinks because we brought our own. There is onsite zip lining your is incredible! The tours guides were entertaining and friendly. The down falls were the drive to the...

My husband and I just got back from our unforgettable honeymoon which we stayed at Borinquen for the whole time. We had amazing adventures which included: ziplining, atving, hiking, horseback riding, seeing waterfalls, and siting Monkies! The location was gorgeous. The rooms were clean and well kept- we stayed in the Jr. suites. The only negative was the food wasn't...

We only stayed here one night and upon pulling into the drive, immediately wished we were staying longer. Positioned seemingly in the middle of nowhere is this delightful and peaceful haven: quaint and rustic, as one would likely want from a Costa Rican vacation, but clean and inviting as well with romantic charm. I loved the grounds, the bungalows, the...

We stayed here for two days, just before Christmas. This was our favourite resort during our stay. The grounds are beautiful and the villas are rustic. As a family, we enjoyed the hot mud, went horseback riding, and zip lined. This resort may be remote but we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves even though it was...

We went to Borinquen the first week of March 2014. We've planned vacations where you jump from city to city. This time, we decided to stay in one location for 10 days. We left Bohrinquen a month ago, and I cannot think of a single thing to criticize about our time there. I confess I am extremely hard to please,...

We stayed March 10, 2014 for 4 nights. All of the reviews are pretty much dead on. Great place, secluded, fantastic rooms. Tours are amazing, we went horseback, zip line, ATV and wife had a spa. All were first class. The problem we had was the hotel screwed up for our bus ride back to the airport in Liberia. We...

We stayed here for 2 nights immediately after landing in Liberia. I agree the road is a bit rough but worth it. We loved the zip lining right on the property which included a 20 minute horseback ride there. The guides were great and there are 2 easy runs to practice before you travel over the gorge to see the...
