Reviewed 14 March 2013

I have stayed here 4 times and the place hasn't changed much - but I continue to use it because of its location on the way up the west coast of Costa Rica to Palo Verde National Park. It's just an average place. The staff are OK but not overly friendly. A few speak some English. Be prepared for mosquitos here even during the dry season - the place for some reason feels a need to irrigate continually. The rooms are OK. Cleanliness OK. Food is OK.

Conveniently situated for Palo Verde, this is not luxurious accommodation but the best there is in the area. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Bungalows have a large bedroom and a living room and have air conditioning. The grounds are well kept and you can see a number of animals in the grounds themselves or in the nearby rescue centre. There is a restaurant with a decent range of choices. The food is OK but not fantastic.

This is a decent hotel, with nice clean large rooms. The bathroom was OK, with hot water and clean, although the tiles looked a little bit worn (which is part of the chosen style). Breakfast is OK, but small for Costa Rican standards. They have a large pool, and a nice garden. If you are flying in from Liberia, this would be a great start for a bird watching trip, as you can easily see some of the more common species. As happens with Hotels of this size, service is impersonal. Overall a recommendation, and a good price for what you get, although I prefer small family run hotels. We did not eat here but in Canas.

Room Tip: the smallest rooms are still rather large

Please note that this rating in no way denigrates this hotel. We enjoyed our stay. Our room was small, sparsely furnished, but very clean, with air conditioning (which we didn't use) and totally within our expectations. The rooms are spread in clusters over several acres, creating the sense of staying in jungle cabanas. Great pool. Good breakfast is included. Also often is the case in Costa Rica, the best part is the people. The staff here was outgoing, very helpful and quite enjoyable. We would stay again. However, by comparison with the several other hotels where we stayed in our two-week Costa Rica drive-about, this place simply is good but not great.

Room Tip: This is a good place for an overnight, but nothing much to see/do in the area. Canas is a non-touris...

My family and I really enjoyed our first night in Costa Rica at Hacienda La Pacifica. After our afternoon arrival in Liberia, it was terrific that this hotel was just a relatively short drive from the airport and made a good stopping point for our continuation on to the Arenal area. We found the rooms to be large, clean, and comfortable. Because the hotel grounds are so large, we were able to take a nice walk around the property and spotted all kinds of birds along with iguanas, monkeys, and deer. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful and very accommodating of our dismal Spanish. The restaurant was quite good as well with something for everyone at reasonable prices.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night on a recent trip to Costa Rica. That's about the length of stay that I'd recommend. Don't come here if you're expecting amenities. No bell hops, no room service. There's a pool that needs to be tended to, and the rooms are basic. It was pretty clean, although the power went out.
The restaurant was decent but slightly overpriced. All in all, this is the kind of place that you go to because a) you've just landed and need to sleep after a long flight, or b) you're going someplace better.

The grounds are a safe distance from the main road and secure, especially if you are driving a rental. The staff are very friendly in the restaurant. The food was average, yet in comparison with the other hotels and restaurants we dined in throughout Costa Rica, we found it wasn't as good, cost the same, and the portions were signifiantly smaller. We only spent one night there. The rooms are large and minimal in accomodations. You will get exactly what you need. Soap, towels, sheets, and nothing more. It has a rustic look but could use a little bit of modernization. You must wear flip flops in the shower!
