“The best option at Guapiles”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

The best option a Guapiles. Good and large parking area, new rooms, free internet, large restaurant and bar, alternative restaurant close to the olympic size swimming pool, Gym.
The cost is expensive (100 US$), but it is the best option in town. Some of the rooms in the old building have a funny smell, but during my stay in March, a lot of work was going on on them. looks like they will be brand new in a few days.
If you are travelling on business or for fun, this is the best option in Guapiles. If your business trip is going to be small or just a room to get some sleep, then probably you will want a cheaper option, probably at half price. The issue is that you will have problems parking your car or getting poor beds in cheaper alternatives.

Room Tip: The new rooms located at the back are much better (bigger, newer), but more expensive

The hotel looks nice upon arrival in the dark.

When we got to the room we got a big chill.

There are no windows other than milk glass. The room is of a good size, but looks like the interior of a fridge with cold bluish main lighting. Some spots provide a what warmer atmosphere.

Worse still, most rooms are set on an open space providing some daylight , but our room (137) was in a narrow passage, so no daylight.

The food in the restaurant was ordinary. The buffet for breakfast was sparse, that for dinner outright poor.

The bar has an unfriendly atmosphere, the bar at the pool is nice , but only open on the weekend while we were there. The other days it was closed. The weekend it closed at 18.00h.

With a name like "Hotel and Country Club" one would expect something a lot better than what it really is.

Room Tip: avoid rooms 136 & 137

Bland rooms set around a motel like car park but its clean, has A/C and good wi-fi. Olympic sized pool, gym, covered tennis courts and separate kids pool are the highlights. Excellent service ay reception in English and Spanish.

I only stayed 1 night, but the service was terrible, The room was old, everything was rusted or cracked. I also noticed all the inside walls need some painting.
The prices seemed extremely expensive for the quality of rooms, they charged Hilton rates for a single room with one full bed, old tv, a chair and an old rusted minibar fridge.
I should have to agree on not a nice place to stay, not comfy at all, maybe if you are really desperate and no vacancy around, then and only then this place will be your first choice to stay.

Room Tip: At least on Standar rooms, Find another Hotel!

Thanks for a fantastic time , we spent 2 nights here and participated in the Pococi Tope and couldnt have asked for better time . Prices very fair , food really good , pool was fantastic ! I might ask for the management to review the pillows ? They were a bit lumpy and bumpy but I found the best 1 and made due ! After 3 hours on horseback and dancing to the wee hours I was ready for any pillow ! Thanks again ! PURA VIDA at its best !

Room Tip: Get the breakfast package its worth it !

We are 'socios' of this club but only because of the gym and enormous 50m swimming pool. Friendly staff and a well equipped gym. Everything in this concept feels "old" but for Guapiles standards it is luxurious.

Room Tip: See it before you take it

Words really fail to capture what this place is even trying to be. It is easily the most bizarre travel experience I have ever had in Costa Rica. If you want an overpriced hotel room that lacks any sort of actual comfort, this is the place. If you want a hotel with a seedy casino, this is it. If you want to hear pounding bass and techno music as you try to fall asleep coming from a spin class in the fitness center that is on the other side of the parking lot, you will be in heaven.

The staff were polite and the restaurant is satisfactory. There is a Thrifty Car Rental on site, which was extremely useful in helping us escape the bizarre oddity that was Hotel Suerre.
