To reach the resort, it's highly recommendable to have a 4-wheel drive car, as the last approximately 15 kilometres are offroad (bumpy, sometimes steep). The resort area in the forest looks beautiful. The houses are nice with a good comfort level. The food in the restaurants is ok but quite expensive. The highlight of the resort is the pool area...

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 young kids) stayed at Hotel Borinquen Mountain Resort in early April. After reading all the negative reviews, I was super hesitant in booking the place (especially of the reviews that said that their reservations were not honored). I booked anyway, and even called several times beforehand to confirm the reservation. I've asked for...

Perfect combination of activities available and spa atmosphere to relax. The mineral pools and volcanic mud were the answer to a day of zip lining and hiking. A dip in the pool after sitting in the natural sauna is amazing. Saw toucans and too many other birds to mention. My neighbors were an iguana and an acuti. While hiking in...

If you like to experience a true Costa Rica atmosphere, look no more. The Hotel Borinquen Resort is in a remote destination near the Sarapiqui river and within walking distance of a tropical forest. The rooms are nicely decorated, you have some that have ac other have fans. They are all surrounded by a vast combination of different plants, trees...

We stayed here one night after hiking in Ricon de La Vieja national park and although the roads to get here were not in great shape, once we arrived, the resort was well worth the trip. We were greeted with fresh fruit juices and were upgraded to a bungalow that was spacious and had a nice hammock on the terrace....

We visited late March and had a fabulous 3 nights here. My 12 and 14 year old enjoyed every minute. The zip line and horseback riding tour was amazing- you just book when you arrive. They were very accommodating and had many options for tours when you check in. The pool was great and we enjoyed watching the monkeys play...

This is the second time my family and friends have visited this amazing spot. The kids loved the pool, the adults enjoyed the swim-up bar and everyone relaxed in the hot springs. The rooms were super quaint and clean with great views. On one ½ hour hike we were lucky enough to see toucans at the top of the trees...

The owners have created a paradise here. This is the perfect antidote to a hot week at the beach. The mountains are spindled. The air is cool and clear. We went as a family. I recommend room 505. The views and wildlife sightings are spectacular from there. The features in the room (shower and hot tub) and on the balcony...

Simple, relaxing room, very private and clean room. Great activities (ziplining, 4X4 tours, awesome spa) We loved the hot springs and the breakfast at restaurant was very good. The location is perfect too, right at the foothills of the volcano.
