The Hotel Riu Palace Costa Rica (All Inclusive 24h), is located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica on the edge of the beach of Matapalo. This hotel, fully prepared to provide the best service to its customers, has four swimming pools (one with a swim-up bar), jacuzzi, gym, sauna and a wellness center "Renova Spa" with different treatments and massages. Everything you need for maximum comfort during your stay.

The quality of the cuisine offered at the different restaurants of the hotel is exceptional thanks to our chefs, who prepare a variety of dishes, from classic to the most exotic. You'll want to to try each of our menusand thanks to the All Inclusive service, you will be able to enjoy the buffet restaurant or the four different theme restaurants of the hotel.

If your stay is for work purposes, then the Hotel Riu Palace Costa Rica will be ideal for you. It has five conference rooms, modern and fully equipped so you can conduct meetings or events in a professional and simple way, well as various services that you will be able to request.

Being on a privileged environment, the hotel offers a variety of activities on the beautiful beaches such as diving or fishing in the Pacific waters, ecotourism in the volcanic areas, and during the day several programs of entertainment for all ages, whether in family or friends. The hotel has a gym, table tennis, volleyball, tennis court, windsurf, sailing, snorkeling equipment, kayaks and other water activities. If your favorite sport is golf, the Four Seasons Golf Club has fantastic views over the sea.

Guanacaste is less tropical, humid and lush than the rest of the country. Its plains and dry forests sometimes remind African savanna landscapes. Inland you can see the savanna, local cowboys on their horses while driving their flocks, which are authentic figures of popular culture of this destination. From the hotel, you can do several excursions that you can not lose, like the visit of the National Park Rincon de la Vieja, the Safari Park or the capital of Guanacaste: Liberia.

Booking Airfare

Booking your airfare early is highly recommended. As soon as you find a price that you are happy with, confirm it - DO NOT WAIT. In my experience, I see far too many people pay more for airfare because they waited too long, especially when you are traveling during peak vacation months.  

I can add airfare to your travel package with your room and transfers or you can purchase your airfare direct. If you purchase your airfare direct, please send me your flight confirmation so I can set up your airport transfers.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is highly recommended. I will send you a quote for travel insurance through a company called Allianz. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions that you want/need covered under the insurance, you need to purchase the insurance within 2 weeks of your initial deposit. Otherwise, you can purchase the insurance anytime up to 30 days prior to travel. 

Alternative insurance options through the supplier (must be purchased with initial deposit):

Cancel for Any Reason Plus Basic Travel Protection: $99 per adult

Please email or call me with questions about these insurance options.

Insurance is nonrefundable

Deposit and Payment Schedules

Initial deposit due at time of booking to confirm your room:

Without Supplier Travel Insurance: $150 per person plus cost of airfare in full

With Supplier Travel Insurance: $100 per person

Final payment is due 45 days prior to travel

Payment Plans

If you would like to set up a payment plan using the same credit card used for deposit, let me know which day of the month to process your payment and how much you would like to pay each month. Otherwise, you can make payments on your balance anytime by emailing me the amount you would like to charge (if using the same credit card) or submitting a payment request form.

Cancellation Policy

Initial deposit up to final payment due date: $50 per person plus full cost of airfare if purchased

After final payment, hotel cancellation fees may apply.

Airfare is nonrefundable.
