“Fantastic trip to fish and enjoy costa rica. Great service and friendly staff.”
Reviewed 18 September 2011

We came here to fish and explore beautiful costa rica. From the minute we arrived Marro was a great host. I felt like I was staying at a family members house. We fished two days and saw a couple huge tarpon, some alligator gar and tons of birds. Although I didn't catch any of these fish I did manage to catch a decent size fish. It was amazing fishing in the river and lagoons! The restaurant food was fresh and delicious. Many of the ingredients came from his garden across the street. And Marro gave us a tour of his garden where we saw spider monkeys. His wife made the most amazing pasta dish and quail (from across street). Overall it was a destination in costa rica that we will always remember.
p.s. I'm coming back to catch the tarpon and gar that got away!

Since we were in Green season we were the only two people staying in Hotel de Campo. That's probably the main reason for the average review. The hotel was clean, service was good, the food was ok but the price was rather high. So overall not great but ok.

However, there was a really nice pool and the location is perfect. Far away from all the really touristy stuff, only reachable by unpaved roads and the boat trip on the Rio Cano Negro was stunning. The hotel had it's own guide who was able to spot loads of different birds and other animals.

So not the perfect place but good enough.

Hotel de Campo is a gradually transforming jewel of a location, the creation of its owner who is in touch with nature and the environment. Being a birder, I really appreciated the most beautiful grounds one can imagine. With fruit trees of tremendous variety, Andrea the owner, is transforming the area into an avian magnet. Thoughout our stay, orange halves and bananas and other fruit were set out to bring in such birds as the Passerini's, Summer, Golden-hooded, Blue-Grey and Palm Tanagers. Gorgeous little Red-legged Honeycreepers mixed with ever-present Clay-coloured Robins and Rufous-tailed Hummingbirds. A quick walk to the lower edge of the elegant and well-kept grounds brought us to the edge of the lagoon with its array of water birds like the Anhinga, the Bare-throated Tiger-Heron, the Gray-necked Wood-Rail, Great Egrets and lots more. By chance, a Common Nighthawk used a flat limb in one of the trees just in front of one of the cabins every day of our stay.

We got there the difficult way ... by bus as we were not using a car to get around the country. We used the guidelines in Lonely Planet to figure out how to do it for under $10 US per person (there were four of us doing the trip). Three buses ... 5:30 am bus out of Liberia (LP page 230) for 1.5 hours to Canas (parada - bus terminal) ... 8:30 am bus north to Upala (LP page 218) for 2 hours ... 11:00 am bus to Los Chiles (goes through Cano Negro and even stops if you tell it at the front gate of Hotel do Campo) ... for 1 hour (LP page 520) ... all this information in Lonely Planet 9th Edition. P.S. We checked out the location of the bus terminal in Liberia the night before departing to make sure we found it on foot OK.

If you do it by car, I suspect it would be quite easy.

Anyway, we looked at the other competing hotel while there and felt we had really made the very best choice. A couple we met from the other hotel involved in a group tour looked longingly at our pool which was sensational. There's was out of commission for some reason.

My only disappointment concerned the fishing trip excursion that a friend and I went on to fish for tarpon, supposedly. We were out for about three hours, I think, a guide, my friend and I. We cast continuously with every type of lure you could imagine as provided by the guide, going to about 12 different locations on the river and NONE of us got a bite, not even a mosquito bite. If you ask me, it was either the wrong time of year or the fish are no longer there. It was a frustrating waste of time and money.

So, I will return some day to go birding and to see how Andrea's experiment grows! I hope the whole area keeps its feeling of off the beaten track. It is a gem of a resort.

What a surprise after a long drive to this remote location. The hotel is clean and neat. The rooms were duplexes but very quiet. The dining room very nice with excellent food. The property is beautifully landscaped with fountains and statuary. The pool elegant and clean. We would return.

It took 3 public buses to get to Cano Negro but once we got there we were in heaven. The gardens are alive with birds, the rooms are immaculate and the restaurant meals were delicious. There was one other lodge in the area and it doesn't compare. The owner Andrea arranged a boat tour for us and the birds were amazing. We went later to Los Chiles for another tour and it didn't compare.
We have been 3 weeks in Costa Rica and Hotel de Campo was a highlight.
