Cute place with large rooms and powerful AC. It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere, though. It’s about a 10 minute walk to Play Potrero. It’s easiest to get a taxi (or rent a car) to get around to Playa Flamingo or Playa Brasilito. A taxi was 2-3mil each way.

We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica. It was about an hour and a half drive from the Liberia airport.This is a family run hotel and they were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean, the beds are comfortable and the included breakfast was delicious! You are about a five minute walk to the beach/marina and a delicious restaurant called Pleamars which has the best Mojitos ever! The grocery store is right next to the hotel. Would definitely recommend this place!

Don’t judge the sign! We had booked our stay before leaving Canada and as we arrived at Guanacaste Lodge, we felt a little worried that we had booked a not so great place. The signage from the road is old and faded and it looks a little sketchy. But we pulled in and we’re pleasantly surprised! This little place is fantastic! The little cabanas were spacious and clean. The morning breakfast was basic but made fresh and it was delicious. The pool was clean and the temperature was just right. The grounds are beautiful. The staff was very friendly and they even allowed us to check in early because our room wasn’t currently occupied. We were very happy here!

You might pass right by the Guanacaste Lodge if you weren't looking for it specifically but we were so happy that we found it! It is on the main road heading down to Playa Flamingo which is a gorgeous beach area. Our room was spotlessly clean and was cleaned each day. The fridge was a great bonus. The Costa Rican family that runs the hotel was lovely...and extremely hard working. ( Anna welcomed us when we arrived, cooked us breakfast each morning, cleaned up after breakfast and then proceeded to clean the rooms....all while looking after her 3 young children!!) The breakfast was excellent, cooked right in the small kitchen next to the pool and the open air thatched roof eating area. We had scrambled eggs, bacon, beans and rice, fresh fruit, toast, coffee and juice each morning. The location is perfect, close to beaches, next to a supermarket on one side and a great Italian restaurant on the other side. The pool was great. Since there are only 10 rooms available, the place was not crowded. When we were there was a great mix of local families and international visitors. We are planning to return to Costa Rica next year and the Guanacaste Lodge is where we will stay!
