The Suerre Hotel, located in Guapiles, a little over an hour north of San Jose, marks the transition between Costa Rica's central highlands and the Caribbean lowlands. The hotel is a combination country club, casino, and 98 room lodging with many luxury amenities such as an Olympic size swimming pool, Jacuzzi, tennis and basketball courts, game room, and spa. For conventions or weddings, the hotel provides a dedicated team to make your event a memorable one in its well-appointed Gran Caribe convention center that can cater up to 600 people. The modern casino features the latest in electronic machines, including roulette, and at the tables you can play such games as Black Jack, Rummy, and Texas Holdem. From this mid-priced hotel in Guapiles, you can explore a variety of transitional ecosystems from lowland rainforests to mountain top cloud forests.
A long-time banana farming town, growing Guapiles now wants to encourage tourists to come discover its lowland scenic rivers and rainforest diversity, plus a nearby drive to Braulio Carrillo National Park will take you up over 9,000 feet exploring cool misty cloud forests. Within the park is an amazing butterfly house. A guided aerial tram tour at the park can be arranged to observe the different ecosystems and inhabitants found as the elevation transitions from lowlands to upper highlands. Over 90% of the park features ancient primary forests. Due to lack of existing roads, the Caribbean coast is not easily accessed from Guapiles.
While staying at the 4-star Suerre Hotel you can enjoy the Olympic size pool complete with swim lanes, plus a separate junior pool will provide hours of fun for kids. Next to the pool, one of the three onsite restaurants provides fast food and delicious cocktails. A formal restaurant as well as a casual restaurant complete the dining choices, both featuring freshly prepared cuisine, mixed drinks, and wine lists.
The spacious casino offers plenty of modern electronic slot machines plus 2 roulette wheels. You can play a variety of card games at the tables and highly trained staff are always available to provide assistance. The Tragaluz Bar inside the casino mixes international cocktails and hosts special events a couple of times a month featuring live music and a free buffet.
You might choose to up your game on one of the covered professional tennis courts. Multi-purpose ball courts provide venues for volleyball, basketball, and soccer. You can continue your workouts by attending the fitness center and afterward you might want to pamper yourself with a variety of professional services from the Spa or soak awhile in the outdoor Jacuzzi. Both swimming pools have fun waterslides and a game room features ping pong, pool, and foosball.
The modern, spacious air-conditioned rooms all have free Wifi, cable TV, telephone, a safe, hair dryer, and a private bathroom with hot water. Some of the room types have bath tubs and/or minifridges. Room service is available for all rooms. The staff at the Suerre Hotel would like the chance to offer you a well-rounded, fun filled vacation experience.
