My wife and I stayed here for two nights and to be honest it was the most we would like to have stayed for. The staff at the hotel are fantastic but the hotel itself is looking tired and in need of a refurb. The room we had was very basic and had no TV in the room. The bathroom...

Thank you Glenn K for your comments. We have been going through a renovation process that will include installing TV's in the standard rooms, the only category without TV's.

This little resort is very close to Liberia, and can be reached in under 45 minutes on paved roads from the Liberia airport. It comprises ~50 rooms in long, one-storey buildings loosely arranged around an open green area. There is a small but nice, secluded feeling swimming pool. There is one restaurant on site that is open for 3 meals...

Thank you Mike N for your review.Lots of very good information. We are happy to know that you enjoyed your stay at Guachipelin. The restriction on the tubing was in force because the waters were strong due to rainy conditions on the mountain, but now the waters are normal. Pura vida !!!

What a beautiful hotel tucked in a beautiful location with many fun things to do. Don't skip the thermal springs, absolutely wonderful! I will be back again for sure. Food was very good and the variety was plentiful.
