The Borinquen resort is destination in itself. You could go there just to spend the day, it is that amazing. It is set in a lush valley surrounded by tropical vegetation. There are beautiful birds including toucans and mot mots. We went there as part of a Costa Rica Monkey tour and were amazed! The grounds are huge and jaw droppingly beautiful. There is plenty to do and we did it all! We rode horses up to the top of a mountain and ziplined down. There are 12 ziplines in all. The view over the ... Read more

I fell in love with Borinquen Mountain Resort almost immediately. It's so beautiful and peaceful with an abundance of wildlife on your doorstep. The road up there is 19km and mostly unpaved but no better or worse than any other unpaved road in Costa Rica. If you're not used to driving on an unpaved road it could prove somewhat daunting. Pros: The grounds are lovely, landscaped with green lawns and luscious plants and flowers. Lots of birds, particularly bluejays and mut muts, sadly we didn't s... Read more

This is the third time I have stayed in this hotel in the last month and each time has ben delightful.From the moment we arrived to a most courteous front desk, a wet towel and a fresh drink, we were made to feel at ease. The grounds are themselves lovely, carefully planted and beautifully maintained so that you feel in Costa Rica but oh so tranquil. We had an amazing ride on wonderfully well behaved horses led by Oscar though the forest to two waterfalls. Oscar was an amazing guide. We saw to... Read more

We booked this as after research we thought & were told that it was the best in the area. We booked a junior suite, so that our 2 children could sleep on the sofa bed in the sitting room. The situation & location were pretty, but the hotel itself was a bit of a disappointment. Breakfast was very poor. Dinner was actually ok. Staff were kind but it just doesn't have a great level of service or amenities all round. Just one restaurant open for dinner & it was decorated from the dark ages - all... Read more

It is an amazing place to travel, with a lot biodiversity, perfect to relax and discover different places in Costa Rica, I enjoyed to much the canopy, and the ride horses, one of the beauty things are look the landscape with Mountain, the volcano, and many exotic animals. Also the food is perfect, you can't imagine how delicious is it, and people are so special. I am very happy there!! :)

We visited the Hotel Borinquen as part of an excursion from another hotel so this review is based on the facilities but not the accommodation as we did not stay here. Location is beautiful, within the National Park and in the middle of the forest. We had lunch here, visited the stables, used the zip wires and then the steam room, mud room and hot springs. Staff were very attentive and took our food orders swiftly. Selection on the menu was good and food was tasty and appeared fresh when it a... Read more

The resort is rather isolated and set in the mountain area with lots of foliage, hot springs, and nature. It took approximately 2 1/2 hours to get there from the Liberia airport, the last hour on bumpy gravel road. Everyone was extremely nice to us and took good care of us. We were upgraded to a suite at the very top and the view was incredible! Gorgeous sunsets every night! However, anytime we left the suite to go anywhere, it was quite a rigorous walk! The roads are steep and there were a lot ... Read more

We came here with Costa Rica Monkey Tours, and had a great time. Its in a pretty secluded place so there is a lot of wildlife. You will fall asleep to what sounds like cicadas and wake up to monkeys and birds. The wildlife does include bugs, including a few in your room, so if you are squeamish, this isn't the place for you. The food in the restaurant is a little expensive, but the chef is very good, and the atmosphere is beautiful. They have horseback riding and ziplining available on the prope... Read more

The rooms very clean and large with nice views on the area. Everything worked and it was exceptionally well kept. Food in the restaurant was excellent and the hot pools were relaxing. The pool a little cold but we got used to it and enjoyed a few drinks at the swim up bar. we only spent one night but could stay there several days at a time. The only negative is the 40 km drive up to the resort, very rough and virtually no signs.

Visited Borinquen resort last August. It was perfect, more than what I expected. The fact that we were there on a weekday during slow season guaranteed peaceful experience. We had all the beautiful facilities to ourselves until afternoon and were able to enjoy everything offered with no line no waiting.

Where to start! Its located about 1 hr 15 min from Liberia Airport. It's up in the mountain in the middle of know where... The grounds are very hilly and well taken care of. The accommodations look like cottages on streets. All the staff is very friendly and accommodating from the front desk, pool, restaurant to horseback riding staff. I didn't have interaction with housekeeping. The rooms are nice and spacious. The food at the restaurant is good, a little pricey. The fun part is the outdoor... Read more

Absolutely awful experience. Didn't get any sleep. As we were getting ready for bed, a large bug ran out in front us and I squashed it with my shoe. Then a disgusting hairworm started creeping out like a scene from the exorcist. Not even ten minutes later two giant spiders were crawling across our floor. We then started to notice the grotesque amount of spiders and other bugs in our room along with geckos and other things that belong outside. We called reception and asked to be switched rooms or...

Crazy drive up steep gravel mountain road (rent a 4x4 if you're driving), but totally worth it. Beautiful bungalows, natural hot springs, volcanic mud, and lovely pool. Buffet breakfast with lots of offerings included. Dinner is la carte or buffet (delicious!).

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Borinquen from May 28th through to June 2nd and had a wonderful time. With it being the start of the rainy season, the occupancy level at the resort was on the low side and there were many times when we felt that we had the entire place to ourselves. This was really nice at the pool area or late in the afternoon when we would go down to the hot tubs and relax for a while just taking in the scenery. Twice while we were at the resort, we got to see howler monk... Read more

We stayed here for a few nights after staying on the beach. The lower temperatures were very welcome. It's really nice that each "room" is actually a detached dwelling. We stayed at the one closest to reception, which we were very thankful for! The grounds are extremely hilly. It would have been quite a walk to everything had we been any further up the hill. The pool and hot springs are at the bottom of the hill, and the restaurant near the middle. I did see a few people asking reception ... Read more

We only stayed for one night, but wish we could have stayed for a few more! What a property, with absolutely breathtaking views, and great amenities. The pool exemplifies what a "resort" pool should look like, and the hot thermal pools were very nice. This area has thermal springs and mud pots like you would see in Yellowstone, except it is in a rainforest. We did the horseback riding trip to the waterfalls, and it was amazing. Giovanni was our guide and he made the trip even better. Altho... Read more

This resort is located very near Rincon de La Vieja park less than 20km from Liberia. Anyone familiar with this area knows of the rustic nature of the roads and the remoteness of the attractions, so that being said, this is a beautiful-looking resort. The extensive property contains both beautifully manicured landscapes and remote trails. Sadly, the lovely rooms are big on looks and short on basic maintenance (soap dishes poorly glued to the walls fall off, soap containers in showers out of soa... Read more

The pool and hot springs were fantastic. The food was very good, maybe a little expensive compared to other places we stayed. The included breakfast was hit or miss. The first morning it was a small buffet with a limited selection of baked goods and fruit which was kind of disappointing. The ne... Read more

There is no discussion regarding the beauty of this place. Great views, nice room. The activities are great. The staff is super nice and helpful. I emplore this hotel and all of Costa Rica tourism to not get too confident. What I mean is that some of the pricing is a little high. It should not cost $26 dollars for a arroz con pollo. Give the tourist a break and they will reward you in other ways with more tours, bigger tips and overall joy.

This hotel is very pretty, but we had a very so so experience. My husband and 2 teenage daughters stayed for 2 nights and 3 days. We booked with Expedia and were given villa 321 which seemed in bad need of remodeling. The paint was peeling, things were missing from the room (we didn't have a telephone, although there was a cord) there was no mini fridge, missing shelves in the armoire, everything smelled stale. We weren't given any bottles of water... When we checked in everyone at the reception... Read more

I ended up staying here by accident. It looked to be the most decent place to Liberia and indeed it is. But it's almost an hour away due to the windy rutted mountain road that approaches it. The place is breathtakingly beautiful. The rooms/lodges are very nice and well appointed but be aware that if you need wifi this is only to be found in reception and the restaurant. This is a genuine volcanic spa with natural hot pools and a steam room that is sites on top of a natural source of steam. Very... Read more

We visited this resort with friends during 3 years as part of our Costa Rica trip. The location is really top and well integrated in the local nature. The infrastructure is however old and no longer at level. The mountain resort naming is not longer appropriate for this facility in my view. The rooms are big but not so clean and need some refurbishment and some serious investment. The restaurant (facility and kitchen) could be seriously improved.

Thus is the sort of place, you'll either love or whinge about, depending on the sort of traveller you are! When we read the reviews it seemed like the whole world turned up every day to do all the horseriding and zipwires, etc. This was NOT the case when we were there (Sun-Tues). Yes, minibuses do turn up but they don't stay that long and are not intrusive (and they are not crammed full, either). We had the swimming pool to ourselves (a great size and with a lovely 'beach' to recline on, half in... Read more

We chose this resort upon recommendation from friends who had stayed here, and we were not disappointed. We spent 2.5 days here, which was the perfect length of time for us. We stayed near the top of the resort (114 and 115), which meant lots of UPHILL walking, but we viewed it as really good exercise (and lots of it!). The staff is super nice and the activities in which we participated were great. I strongly recommend horseback riding (our guide Oscar was fantastic and quite hilarious, and... Read more

After 4 days on the beautiful coast of Playa Conchal, our family of 5 were looking forward to staying in Rincon de la Vieja. We picked Borinquen Mountain Resort & Lodge, after having researched it on TripAdvisor, fully aware of the mixed reviews.

We stayed in a junior suite which was big but was damp and smelt musty. The large tub i... Read more
