The long dirt road to the lodge is quite bumpy (not steep though).
Good base to visit the park from, if you have your own transportation. Large room with hammock. Great breakfast. Dinner was good and reasonably priced, especially considering it is a lodge.

The roads getting there can be a bit rough and long, but very doable in a 2wd. We had a room in the newly finished building 3, luckily we had the whole building to ourselves but had we not the insulation was lacking and noise traveled very easily.
The view and atmosphere from the hotel is nice

I didn't like the signage for the place and the very bumpy roads that lead to the place
The staff was very nice and food pretty good

Our host initially was gracious. He welcomed us and showed us to our room. That night we said we would hike on our own instead of taking a tour. We also didn't buy our bag lunches from the lodge. After that he seemed not as gracious or welcoming. Weird vibes is how I would describe it. Also, we paid $30 to get to the entrance to the park (the one close to the mud pots and steam vents). This seemed over priced, but we were quite far out from Liberia too.
The room was very clean, and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was fancy almost, but the hot water did take 10 minutes to come through. The food- $11 dollars for an entré. It was good food. They also gave us a small desert afterward, included. ALSO there was a mini convenience store just up the road where we bought sack lunches $5 a piece and liquor and snacks. The man at the mini convenience store was very kind and welcoming. Lastly, paid $30 to have the shuttle (a man with a car, probably a friend of the host or something) drive us back to Liberia after we checked out. This was a much better deal than the $45 taxi we paid to get up to the lodge ($45 because we didn't know excatly where we were going and neither did the taxi driver and he took us a round-about way, farther than it should have been driving there directly. Overall, it was a nice place to say. My partner and I were content.

It's very windy; therefore. The roof always makes a lot of noise at night.
The staff was really nice and helpful. The location was unbelievable! We got a room with an amazing view! It was a brand new room as well. The tour options are worth the cost and just looking at the stars at night was breathtaking!

great location, extensive walks around property. good pool and very helpful staff
February 21, 2015
pool was too cold, not comfy to lie at the pool, rooms are bad constructed (a lot of animals in the room -> Spiders...), no facilities in the room like fridge, chairs, table (you are forced to eat in the very expensive Restaurant...)
the lodge itself and the surraounding, Close to national park, clean and big rooms
January 28, 2015
We had an electricity cut (no light, no hot shower, no wi-fi, long time to get food). The food is overpriced and bad.In the room we had several pieces of wooden decoration falling apart. We had dead ants falling from the ceiling into the sink in the bathroom. Dogs begging for food in the restaurant. Wi-fi only close to reception.
Location in the nature, close to natural parks. Double rainbow is almost guaranteed every morning.

Low light in rooms, bring a torch !
Wonderful natural setting

Very very bad food!!!! We were 4 weeks in Costa Rica and here was the worst restaurant and service. There was even no toilet paper in the restaurant WC! The food was awful and expensive - 10$ for green salat with canned tuna, which we waited for 1 hour, and also 10% for the service
Location is close to both park entrances. Nice pool, big room, very nice terrace with comfortable chairs.
January 13, 2015
The bathroom was a bit small, especially compared to the large room we had, but that seems to be case almost everywhere in Costa Rica.
Friendly staff Well maintained Beautiful garden Swimming pool Good restaurant, you can order pack lunches as well

- rooms were worn out - foot only average - lodge restaurant only restaurant close by, long waiting time for food
nice and helpful people/staff, rooms were clean

The staff is not the fastest (but hey: Pura Vida!), Internet is not working for most of the time, the tour guide (his name was Oscar) we had for the tour to the national park didn't seem to be very motivated and talkative but limited himself to very basic information.
Located near the national park you can experience nature at its best. Food was good and not overpriced, given that there is no alternative restaurant right around. We were there over new year and they prepared a special buffet for the 31st. The canopy tour with horseback riding was awesome and the guide much fun.

I reserved for two rooms (with credit and firm commitment) but they only had one for me. What's worse, they insisted charging for for two rooms even if they only had one room for me.
Overall good value for the money

There was a dog while we were having breakfast, scratching herself. The fan in the room was noisy.
the staff was very friendly. Is set in a very peaceful area. The pool and the hammock were excellent. There is a menu for breakfast, we choose the traditional but the pancakes were very tasty. Near to the volcano.

We had a little issue with the hot water and it took a while to fix but eventually it was resolved. One suggestion would be to have an area where people could sit and relax other than the dining tables. It might be nice to have another light in the room other than one light bulb. Maybe a lamp. Tuvimos un problemita con el agua caliente y tomo unas horas para arreglar pero se pudo hacer. Una sugerencia seria tener unas sillas o donde sentarse en otro lugar en ves del comedor. Tambien seria bonito tener otra luz en la habitacion para leer al lado de la cama y ver mejor dentro de la habitacion.
The family is incredibly friendly. We enjoyed talking with them and even playing a game with Dad in the evening. The atmosphere was very inviting and we spent time in the kitchen talking with different people in the family. La familia es muy amable y nos gusto mucho hablar conto todos. Hasta nos pasamos a la cocina mientras cocinaban para compartir con ellos. En total nos encanto mucho el viaje y todas las comidas. Hasta jugamos damas chinas con el Sr. y lo pasamos muy bien.

I assume people come to this area to visit the Rincon de la vieja National Park, which was why we stayed there. Rinconcito Lodge is located near the Las Pailas entrance of the park & also the Rio Negro hot spring pools & the canopy tour/zip line tour that the lodge also offered. The place was beautiful, quiet, & serene. Our room was spacious & comfortable. Wi-fi only worked in the restaurant/lobby area, but it was no problem since we didn't have too much time to connect to the internet after all our outdoor activities. The staff was great (Gerardo at the front desk, Carlos our server, canopy tour guides Omar & Oscar), & service was excellent. There were not a lot of options to eat/dine around the area & so you almost had to eat at the restaurant there. Yes, expect to spend about USD 12/person (excluding the drink), but it was a three-course meal (a hearty mix of meat, vegetables & fruits) & the food was like homemade food! Any juice beverage we tried there was fresh & delicious. We highly recommend the passion fruit juice & guanabana (soursop) juice! The welcoming grapefruit juice with lemon was great, too. We absolutely enjoyed our two-night stay there. This was a good value hotel, and our GPS didn't have any trouble finding this place (we went there from Liberia).

Wi-Fi did not work, which was quite a problem for us! Shower was not quite comfortable. The hotel restaurant was surprisingly expensive.
A very peaceful and quiet place in the mountains. It just felt nice. I would say the location is excellent for those with a car. Our windows had mosquito nets, so we enjoyed sleeping with the windows open - fresh air and sounds of nature. (However, we noticed that not all rooms had mosquito nets on their windows, so we were just lucky.)
