"Wonderful hotel on the slope of the Rincon volcano"
Beautiful hotel set in the middle of a very large ranch on the lower slopes of the Rincon volcano. About an hour drive from the Liberia airport (on mostly gravel roads). Rooms in bungalows. Lots of adventure tours run by the hotel, many on hotel property, led by experienced and friendly guides on the staff of the hotel.
Good food at the hotel restaurant.
Very little else nearby.

This was a lovely hotel with good restaurants and activities. It was advertised as "close to the airport" - it is NOT. Once off the highway, there is a 20 km drive along a bumpy dirt road. It took 45 minutes minimum to get there from LIberia airport. If one plans to stay a few days, it is a good place. For a short visit, the drive was too much. Once there, the restaurant served fresh produce, the activities were fun, the staff was friendly and spoke English. A favorite was the hill top bar with had an AMAZING view of the sunset over the coastline. I would recommend this establishment, but caution people to be aware of the drive.

I wish we could have stayed longer. It was very quite and rustic. The staff (Daniella) was super friendly and helpful.
My only complaint was that we booked a Villa and someone else ended up getting it. It did not seem that the price reduction was comiserate, but the help we got getting a bus lined up more than made up for this.
Very convenient to LIR (5 minute drive). Great place to overnight before or after Costa Rica trip-very reasonable. Excellent breakfast buffet. Pool is fantastic (but cool). Restaurant very good/bar also. Snack shop overpriced-bring your own food/liquor if possible. Hotel is squeaky clean and staff very attentive. Nothing to do within walking distance.
We stayed one night before our early flight out back to the states. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. We stayed one night at the Hilton Garden when we arrived. I preferred El Sitio over the Hilton except for Hilton's free shuttle to and from the airport. The taxi fare from El Sitio to airport is $20.
El Sitio was cleaner, overall better condition with pool area larger with plenty of chairs than the Hilton. El Sitio staff was more pleasant and very acomodating. Our flight left early morning the next day and was not be able to take advantage of the free breakfast, but the desk provided us a fresh a fruit bowl as we departed for the airport at 5:00 am.
