Not as advertised.
Not what we expected at all. There is no access to Rincon de la Vieja from the hotel, it is an hour and a half away. Also no access to the Blue River shown in the picture unless you pay 50$ person for a guided tour. I was hoping to do some hiking and was disappointed to see that only expensive 'adventure tours' were available. There is no mud bath, just a bowl of mud you can spread on yourself and the 'thermal saunas' were not warm at all, and were in fact just old wooden structures covered in mold, so no one in my family felt comfortable going in them. My kids enjoyed the water slide, but other than that it was not at all what we expected. Once you are at the hotel there is nowhere else to eat which is unfortunate because the restaurant was not great.

NOT close to Rincon de la Vieja National Park
Nice cabins, BUT this place is NOT CLOSE to Rincon de la Vieja National Park. If you want to go to the park, you will need to drive 90+ minutes to get there. Also, this hotel is in a remote area and there is nothing to do nearby unless you want to pay the hotel big bucks to take you on an excursion. There are no nearby hiking trails that you can do on your own, and no other parks close by. In short, if you're here for the spa experience, and are okay with a gated resort that feels like mini-America, you'll be happy. It's a pretty place. But it was not at all what we were hoping for.

There's a Light... Over at the Frankenstein Place
We arrived at the Liberia airport just before 4:00 PM local time. By the time we got through customs, got our rental car and were on our way, it was about 5:30 PM. It started getting dark on the drive up the mountain to Dos Rios and the wind, rain and fog moved in. The roads deteriorated from nice pavement to an awful rocky and muddy track. Our GPS kept losing signal in the mountains and trees, so it was a good thing we had a good paper map as backup (bring your own, the rental car maps are not detailed enough). It took us almost three hours to get to the hotel. The resort didn't look like much at the entry, but we found a veritable Shangri-La once we entered. Beautiful property, wonderful staff and quite an oasis in the wilderness.
