This is probably the nicest Best Western we have ever stayed at (we typically avoid Best Westerns in the U.S.). Our room was quiet and comfortable and the wi-fi was fast. The restaurant is nothing special but we didn't expect much from it anyway. The pools looked very nice.

No one told us about the bar across the street that played extremely loud music until 6:00 a.m. We got no sleep at all! Then, to make matters worse, the gardener cranked up his gas-powered leaf blower at 7:30 a.m RIGHT OUTSIDE OUR WINDOW to clean the entire patio/pool area. Food in restaurant was mediocre at best. Asked for Ranch...

We were going to stay in downtown Liberia, but decided against it and stayed here. Very nice staff and property. Nothing special, but no issues. Room was scant, beds were ok, bathroom and shower were fine. Breakfast was traditional and average. Again, perfect for a place to sleep.

During many trips to Liberia, I’ve stayed at most of the hotels located within the city limits; El Sitio is my choice because the pros far outweigh the cons. Stayed three nights at the beginning of a 2-week solo trip in Costa Rica and then three nights at the end of that stay. Each time in a different room. Pros...

We were scheduled to stay for two nights during the Guanacaste Day fiesta weekend(July 25th). The evening (actually 6 hours prior) prior to our departure to Costa Rica, I received an email from the hotel which stated that they were not going to honour our reservation and they no longer had any rooms available. As you can imagine we were...

It should be great for families with kids, but it isn't. On the plus side, it is close to town and a shopping plaza with everything you may need, it has a kids pool and a regular pool, both cleaned daily. The breakfast is good, and the other meals we had there were fine for the price point (and convenient)....

After touring Costa Rica and loving all the hotels, this was our last stop before flying out. Pretty rough. Rooms were dingy, not so clean. I was just creepy. Free breakfast was good. The staff was friendly.
