Hotel Riu Palace Costa Rica

Quick facts

The Hotel Riu Palace Costa Rica is situated on the edge of the beach of Matapalo in Guanacaste on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Guanacaste is known to be less tropical, humid and lush than the rest of the country, often reminding of African savannah landscapes. The impressive, modern hotel is surrounded by a garden area and offers four swimming pools, one of them with a wet bar. Guests will appreciate a wide variety of services and amenities such as a buffet restaurant, four themed restaurants, hot tub, gym, sauna and an excellent spa and wellness area with treatments and massages. Sports enthusiasts have a plethora of facilities such as table tennis, volleyball, tennis court, windsurf, sailing, snorkelling, kayaks and other water activities at their disposal. Guests can participate in excursions to the volcanic landscape or a visit to Liberia, the capital of Guanacaste. A wonderful place for a beach holiday.

“Este lugar melhorou desde a nossa visita no ano passado. Este ano, o frigobar do quarto tem refil incluindo refrigerantes, cervejas e licores. A comida era ótima, com muitas opções de escolha. E nossa maior reclamação no ano passado foi a defasagem de um menu de coquetéis, que foi colocado em todos os bares este ano e até mesmo no aplicativo para hóspedes. Definitivamente, iremos visitar novamente no próximo ano.”
