About
Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Luxury, boutique hotel overlooking the Pacific ocean. Located just 20 mins from the Liberia International airport. Service includes three a la carte meals served daily. Nearby half a dozen beaches, fishing spots, surf breaks and under an hour from the Rincon de La Vieja (hot springs, mud pits) National Park. Fine decor, two-tier swimming pool with a swim-up bar and stunning ocean views make this a special place to visit. Fantastic food and exceptional service can be expected.

The hotel is fairly isolated but the hotel shuttle will take you into town. Taxis are also available. There are shops and restaurants in town, very touristy.
