“Great value!”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

I have stayed at this hotel thrice already. It is a very nice place to stay when visiting Guanacaste as it is of great value! Rooms are clean and comfortable, equipped with AC, hot water and WIFI. The bathrooms were also really clean and provide you with soap and towels.

In the mornings, we were served: a traditional breakfast (gallo pinto), pancakes, coffee and orange juice. Staff members were really kind and attentive.

Its location is rather convenient, about 5 minutes trip from downtown, 10 minutes from Liberia airport and about 30 minutes from the most amazing beaches.

It is well worth it, and definitely recommend it.

We had a missed connection that necessitated a night in Liberia before we went off to Monteverde, so we decided to stay here that night. A couple of emails to the owner reserved us a room for the night very quickly.

This is one of the best places I have been. The place is closed in with 7-10 ft fences and gates, so rental cars would be very safe. The owner's mother is extremely eager to please, and cooked us an excellent dinner for four dollars each after we arrived at about 9 pm. The rooms are very clean, and all the tiles in the rooms, bathrooms, and courtyard seem very new (under 5 years old). There were no other guests when we stayed (New Year's Day), and the courtyard was pretty quiet and tranquil the whole time.

Many of the rooms have 3-4 beds, so if someone had children, this would be a great way to spend a vacation.

The owner's mother, who seems to be here most of the time, speaks almost no english. The owner's english is excellent, though, so when there were questions, he was always a phone call away.

This is a smaller hotel, and it is a little further from the airport than its alternatives, so make sure and have the address and phone number of the place handy when talking to the taxi driver, because some of them don't know about it.

We arrived at the Hotel Javy late on Christmas Eve, and the hotels hospitality was amazing. They brought fresh mango juice and fresh sliced watermelon for my son and hot lemon juice with sugar to help cure my laryngitis. Room was large and clean. Breakfast was a never ending feast. A bit off the beaten path, but very worthwhile for a more authentic Costa Rican experience..

I have been there five times, and it is excellent place to stay. Rooms are very confortable, and they have Wi-fi and cable TV. Beaches are near from the hotel (30 - 40 minutes), and all the staff are gentle and helpful. If you go to Guanacaste, this is an great option.

The breakfast is awesome!
Rooms are really nice, they have cable TV, hot water and Wi-Fi
It's in Liberia downtown, so it's near to a lot of places there.
Prices are really good
My first option to stay in Liberia.
