We just returned from Costa Rica and stayed at the Hacienda Guachipelin with a tour group of 10. What we liked: good location with lots of fun activities to do including hiking near the volcano, horseback riding, mtn biking, zip-line/rappel/climb/swing in a nearby river gorge, and dancing to music from a live band (only 1 night though). What could be improved: the food (same selections over and over, all rather bland in taste), service in restaurant was extremely slow and not intuitive (every meal we always had to ask for extra water at least 4-5 times). Good to know before you go: rooms were a nice size but virtually no privacy - it was quite hot at night but if you wanted to let the breeze in through the windows, you would need to tieback the curtain allowing anyone to look right in. Also, showers are solar-powered so shower at a sunny time of day and bring earplugs so as not to be wakened by the loud geese on the property :) Would rate this a 3.5 if I could.
