"My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in Costa Rica in November, 2018. We stayed in Tamarindo for the 1st half, and in Borinquen for the 2nd half.I was hesitant to stay in Borinquen because of the 1 restaurant - no other choice - what if I don't like it? After reading reviews, we booked and were more than pleased! Our kind and friendly waiter, Edwin, made us feel like old friends and we looked forward to seeing him and tasting the delicious meals each night! Super fresh fish - my favorite!
Definitely recommend this location - remote enough to feel 'away from it all' yet not too far. "

"First we were overbooked, or so they said. We had to leave our lovely pre-paid room and go to another "resort." I won't comment on how terrible it was. Dirty, room adjacent to horse pens, full of pushy tourists on buses, bad room.....Then when we were to return to Borinquen we waited at the appointed time and an hour and a half past that. They said the car broke down but actually they had forgot us. We had to return to Borinquen to join our tour.
Borinquen is beautiful. Most rooms are great. The problem is walking up and down the steep hill between the rooms and the lodge, pool, etc.
We loved being there and the hotel did make it up to us financially. However, time in Costa Rica is precious and money does not make up for over a day out of our vacation lost. The food at Borinquen is delicious. The pool is wonderful.
If you go Be Careful about your reservations. I understand there was a change in management (they admitted their mistake to Expedia) We managed but felt sorry for the young couple with two young children who had to leave as well. They were not compensated last I heard.
Also, the roads in that area are almost non-existent. Very, very rough and probably impassable in bad weather. Do not attempt that drive yourself! If you are allergic to topical sulfur be careful if the volcano is erupting gas or if you go in the mud bath.
We love Costa Rica and this was definitely the worst experience we had in our 6 trips. "

"Amazing resort -- everything you could want...canopy tours, ATV rides, horseback rides, hiking, full service spa, pool(s), restaurants, hiking, volcanic mud pits, hot springs, natural saunas, etc. etc. This is the ultimate vacation/honeymoon spot! The staff is extremely accommodating, and the grounds are absolutely spotless. I even went during the "slow season" and was greeted with freshly-made frozen drinks & had my lunch order taken perfectly while we waited for our tour of the grounds. Spectacular service, incredible accommodations...can't wait to return!"
