Only hotel even close to airport ( 3 minutes by hotel shuttle) so great location in that regard. 13 Kilometres from town on Liberia ( (1 US dollar for local bus ride into town) and 38 ish kilometres to coast. Nice pool area if you have a day waiting for your flight. Held hostage to Hilton restaurant as nothing else is remotely close as a result prices a tad high for food and bevy's. Not a place to stay for a long time but very good for a night or two.
This hotel is affordable and near to a shopping center, supermarket, restaurants and the bus station. It is about 15 minutes drive from the airport, a great price but a bit dated. Although not near to the beach, the bus station is a 10 minute walk away. From there you can get a bus to go straight to Coco Beach. It is also near to nature-related activities.
MY husband and I spend our honeymoon here! We lover it. Very secluded up in the mountains. We stayed for 10 days and were not bored at all. We did activities everyday! The staff was amazing. I loved everyone in the front desk they were so helpful. To even the bartenders G and Joseph they were such good company! Ian our tour guide was very very smart. He knows every animal down to small bugs. The room was comfy nothing too fancy. Food was good too. I will have to say this experience was life changing to be able to stay somewhere so close to nature and wild life. The lodge itself was nicer then I thought. THANK YOU BUENA VISTA AND ALL THE STAFF!

I stayed four nights after a trip to Nosara. It was a pleasant place to stay overnight. Walking around in not very easy due to the construction of the highway. The hotel facilities were clean & adequate. The air conditioning worked well. The tv was not digital and was small, but worked well. There was no continental breakfast and no places to get coffee/breakfast nearby. There was no cold water in the bathroom sink. the bathroom was large and adequate. The shower had good pressure, but the toilet did not. At times it was noisy at night outside. The hotel is convenient for traveling to the airport. No coffee pot in the room and no coffee or drinks available nearby was inconvenient. Only soap and shampoo provided in dispensers. No phone in the room which I had never encountered in a hotel before. No computer for public use in another public area or small room. There is a pool which I did not use, but it is very clean and pleasant. Airport transportation was available and adequate. Wireless worked most of the time with a stable connection. The stay was pleasant for a few days. Having a car is a plus since nothing is immediately available, but driving to Liberia Malls or Central Liberia is a short drive away. Hotel Staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Best Western Hotel Las Espuelas provided more amenities which were very convenient, but Hotel La Arena had more information on tours and getting to know the area in Liberia.
The owner, Warren, and his wonderful staff are the sweetest people you will meet and made this a very memorable experience. They will go out of their way to help you and my wife and I loved relaxing in the open patio. The food is exceptional, too. Will go back and visit.
