By now I think most people are aware that the northeastern section of Costa Rica is one of the hottest resort markets at the moment. Being on the Pacific coast, there is almost no threat of big storms, and the Liberia Airport has direct flights in from many large cities in the US.
With that in mind, it’s especially good news to hear that the Riu Guanacaste All Inclusive Resort is offering its rooms at 50% off right now, which puts them at US$216 per night for two people. This is a highly rated beachfront 4-star resort and its normal price of US$431 per night is a pretty good deal, so this is just a steal.
A Standard Room at the Riu Guanacaste All Inclusive Resort for US$216 per night for two people on the all-inclusive plan. A Superior Room is US$227 per night and an Ocean Front Standard Room is US$255 per night, all at 50% off as well.
These rates are available through Expedia, our booking partner, and they include free cancellation and even free parking for those who prefer to rent a car. There is no minimum stay required to get the 50% off.
A large and well regarded resort
The Riu Guanacaste All Inclusive has 701 guest rooms, making it one of the largest in the country. The size is precisely why they are able to offer rooms at half price during the low season and still stay in business, so the savvy visitor will take advantage of it.
There are 4 restaurants and a variety of bars, including a poolside bar and a swim-up bar, so taking advantage of the included drinks couldn’t be easier. There’s also a nightclub, tennis courts, a full gym, and a spa, so if you want to stay busy that is easy to do, though it will be very tempting to simply relax by one of the pools or on a lounge chair at the beach.
Even the Standard Rooms come with a balcony, minibar, and flatscreen TV, as you’d expect in a 4-star hotel, but you might prefer the Superior Rooms, which are much larger and include a sofa and a separate sitting area.
One of the most important things to research when you see a deal this appealing is the overall guest rating of the resort. Unfortunately, many of the cheapest deals are found at resorts that end up with a string of bad reviews from guests whose expectations weren’t met. The Riu Guanacaste All Inclusive Resort has an average score of 4.2 out of 5 for its TripAdvisor reviews, meaning that the majority reported that their expectations were exceeded. When you are booking a resort that you plan on spending all your time at for a week or so, you don’t want to take a chance at a place in disrepair or with bad service, so this is an ideal choice at an amazing price.
