    5/5 Excellent

    Driving south through Liberia, watch for the quiet signage in front of the hotel on OPPOSITE side of highway. Continue close to a mile in order to make the u-turn to go back north to La Arena. Watch VERY carefully for the one, steep driveway the fabulous highway department left them as an entrance. (They are suing.) But Arena is worth it, especially if you like to swim! Family-built & operated.

    Very layed back and friendly. It was a perfect place to overnight.

    For an overnight stay, this place is decent. The people were friendly and helpful. Only real criticism, they advertise the pool, but it is poorly maintained. At the price, we were not expecting any luxuries, but when I read that the pool existed, we thought that we might use it. I suggest deleting any reference to the pool until the maintenance improves.

    A great affordable stay!

    We love Dwight, the owner. He made our stay comfortable, friendly and like a home away from home. His English and Spanish are impeccable. We enjoyed our first visit so much we booked another stay. Overall a great experience for a very fair price.
