Lonely Planet review
Though once in grander shape, this long-standing hotel 500m north of the plaza is looking a little tired. But rooms come with air-con, bathroom and cable TV, and the pleasant shared terraces have lovely rattan rocking chairs.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Diriá and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Santa Cruz.

This ridiculously cheap, contemporary cafe next to Terminal Diria has terrific panini sandwiches, soups, casados and even barbeque ribs....
