Riu Hotel Parking Lot/Driving directions

Does anyone know if the Riu has a parking lot and if so how much do they charge? Also, anyone have driving directions from Liberia airport to the Riu?

Any feedback helpful...thank you.

Big parking lots...not a problem to park your car.

From LIR...once you are out of the airport and at the main road...make a right...follow signs to Coco beach/Hermosa/Ocotal beach...

Keep going until you see all those signs and make a right again...keep going...you will see a sign to Sardinal...do not take it...in that curve (kind of interesection) keep right...you will pass a gas station...a few meters from the gas station are signs ...Artola/Colon/Matapalo...just follow signs ...all the way to the hotel...dusty road but good road!


Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!

Adding to Roadadvisor's helpful directions below:

1. If you are using a GPS, add "Playa Matapalo" under Points of Interest and it will take you straight to the resort.

2. If you don't have a GPS, get to Sardinal and look for a gas station on your left (it is an "Esso"). A couple of hundred yards past the gas station is a home furnishings shop called "Home Furnishings" :-). Take an immediate left onto a part gravel/part asphalt road. You will drive for about 15 kilometers on this road before seeing the resort on your left.

Note that the resort is at least a 45-minute drive from the town of Liberia.

The resort is on the RIGHT at the end of the road not left, but it's so big you won't miss it. Ask anyone if you get lost they will point you in the right direction

If I could add a little note...

After you turn left past the gas station you're going to be on a gravel road for about 10 minutes or so. Then the road is going to fork in front of a large cement wall. Bear right. The signage is not very good. It's not like there are huge signs pointing the way to the RIU.
