Eine L. am "Ende der Welt", abgelegen in der NaturPosted Jul 11, 2015
Wenn man nicht in der Lodge essen will - eine Lodge ist immer etwas teurer - weit vor der L. einkaufen. Anfahrtsweg zur L. abenteuerlich, Beschilderung aber einwandfrei. Der Pool ist super, in der L. Kann man gut entspannen.

Perfect getaway for Rincon de la Vieja NPPosted Apr 14, 2015 on Hotels
Rinconcito Lodge is amazingly beautiful! The rooms are simple, but comfortable. The staff rocks, especially David! It is located in a remote area perfect for accessing the park, so it's not too close to shops or restaurants, so plan ahead for a quiet location and bring some snacks along. Your main entertainment in the evening would be night walks and drinks and dinner at Rinconcito's restaurant. If you take a tour and need a guide, ask for Walter. He is THE BEST.

Una estadía que invita a volverPosted Apr 10, 2015 on Hotels
Todo muy bien, los precios del restaurante son razonables y el menu es de platillos nacionales tipicos. Lo único es que se recomienda que la administración del Lodge mejore la calidad de las camas, pase dos días con dolor de espalda por lo deteriorado del colchón de la cama

Comfy ranch style innPosted Apr 5, 2015
Though the location is close to the Rincon de la Vieja, we ended up taking an unpacked road to get there. The location was beautiful and the restaurant food was great. The biggest drawback was the lack of wifi ability. There is only wifi available in the restaurant but not in the rooms. And the wifi at the restaurant was beyond slow. The pool also appeared a bit greenish. Staff was incredibly friendly and really enjoyed the place otherwise.

I'd pass on this unless you have no other optionsPosted Apr 4, 2015
The rinconcito lodge is not far from Liberia airport and is situated close to the national park but there is little else in the area meaning that you have to eat at their mediocre and overpriced restaurant unless you can swing the 30 min drive into town. I experienced a bit of cabin fever as the place shuts down around 8pm and with nothing in the area, it sort of confides you to your room, which wouldn't be so bad if the room was comfortable and/or clean (which it is not). The bed had these tiny gross bugs on it (not bed bugs but still very gross) and the window was broken so that it couldn't be locked. The bed was soft and lumpy and the pillows were flat. It wasn't the worst place but I would definitely take a pass next time around.

The rooms are spacious, clean, and very affordable. The setting of Rinconcito Lodge is beautiful--isolated, lush, very peaceful. Nice hammocks or rocking chairs on the porch of each room, so you can relax at the end of the day and enjoy the peaceful setting. There's a great 4 km hike that starts on the property and goes up a dirt trail to a main road (ask about this at the front desk). It's definitely helpful to have a rental car here if you want to get out and explore, but you can also take a taxi to the park entrance. There are no restaurants nearby, so without a car, expect to eat at the lodge restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food--didn't have super high expectations, but it definitely wasn't bad. Overall, Rinconcito Lodge is a very good value, and I would definitely stay again.

Good. It needs a bigger marker for the hotel name. Pass it the first time.

Gute Lage zum Nationalpark, mit kleinen AbstrichenPosted Mar 10, 2015 on Hotels
Wir haben das Hotel aufgrund der Nähe zum Nationalpark ausgesucht. Es war mit Navi gut zu finden - die Straßen waren nicht besonders (nicht befestigt). Das Personal war sehr nett, das Zimmer war soweit in Ordnung, es war aufgrund der Vorhänge (rot) sehr dunkel & eines der Fenster war nicht mehr ganz in Ordnung & lies sich nicht mehr schliessen, irgendwie war das Bett auch nicht so besonders komfortabel - obwohl das ja Geschmackssache ist (ziemlich hart). Das BBQ am Abend war sehr lecker, der Pool war sauber, wenn auch relativ klein. Insgesamt würde ich das Hotel, bis auf das Bett und das dunkle Zimmer weiterempfehlen.

AceptablePosted Mar 7, 2015 on Hotels
Buen hotel en general. Difícil acceso para auto común.Sin aire acondicionado en habitaciones. Buena piscina y áreas comunes confortables. No cumplieron con una excursión contratada y debimos modificar nuestros planes. Precio/calidad aceptable

Fine Lodge, helpful staff and great toursPosted Mar 7, 2015 on Hotels
Riconcito Lodge is near the Santa Maria entrance to the Riconcito de la Vieja Park. It is a lodge, not to be confused with a resort hotel. We spent 2 nights. The rooms are large enough but very basic. The beds were not comfortable. Service had its ups and downs. We were in one of the rooms on top of the hill. My wife and I are 62 and 61. We were not offered help to haul our luggage up the hill. Also, service at the restaurant was handled at breakfast by one person only (excluding cooking staff) and was at times a little slow. It's fine if you have adjusted to the Tico ways. Otherwise, the staff very helpful. They arranged a guided horseback tour to the Santa Maria section of the park which was excellent. They also kept some of consumables in their fridge upon request. David, the manager of the resort, was extremely helpful. He spoke Spanish, English and French and was always ready to offer suggestions and information for tours, etc. Considering that we did not have a lot of knowledge and expectations about this region of Costa Rica, this stay was perhaps the best and most interesting part of our trip. Aside from, the few negatives mentioned above, I would definitely recommend this lodge if you are heading this way. We would recommend hiking both sections of the Ricon park (Santa Maria and La Pailas). Both have different attributes that you won't see in the other. By all means, take the horseback guided tour to Santa Maria. It's all day but well worth it.
