Thought this place would be nice considering the location and price. We got in around 6 pm and this being near the end of the road we went to the restaurant for dinner.

Thanks for writing rallig002 and for sharing your thoughts with the TA community. My wife is vegetarian and she eats at the restaurant always, actually she chooses the buffet. The buffet always has soup, (sometimes vegetarian and some times chicken) pasta, rice , beans, vegetables, fruit and some pastry as desert. I forgot the salad bar that has many options...

Admittedly we were surprised by the quality of the room. We had airconditioning, it seemed well taken care of, the room was clean and the bathroom possibly renovated. We expected a seccluded ranch providing tourists with a lot of tours and excursions and we were not dissapointed; yelling at the pool and in the restaurant and overpriced meals. We fled...

We spent three days at the property. Pros: Location--easy to get to. we rented a car and I have to say that driving in and around Liberia is easy. The property is located far enough outside Liberia to be in the mountains but not so far that you can't get into the city if you choose. It's only five minutes...

It was fun to be a cowboy during our 2 night stay after arriving in Liberia by air. Horse rides and hikes are easily accomplished. Comfortable and very clean rooms with a great staff. Excellent hot breakfast included and a fun bar. Pura Vida!

Thanks for writing SunLovinGirl , we are happy to know that you enjoyed the tours and Guachipelin in general. A big plus today is the new road up to Curubandé that little town right next door. The hot springs and the adventure are part of the reasons for people to visit Guachipelin. Hope to see you back soon.
