I had a living social deal which included one off-site and one on-site activity. As others have written, this hotel is about 20 minutes from town, 8 of which are on typical terrible unpaved Costa Rica roads. Hospitable, clean, friendly. Let you borrow for free big golf umbrellas, golashes, walking stick, rain ponchos. Off-site activities thru a great company...if you're... More

I took my younger sister here for her birthday and I have to say all the accommodations were truly amazing. We did the night hike am horseback tours and found them to be very fun and David to be informative with answers to all our questions. He was very generous and we appreciated the entire experience from everyone at the... More

A beautiful hotel/lodge located in a private forest. There are 4 rooms with private baths to each building. Corner rooms had a picture window over the bed which brought light into the room. The bathroom had huge picture windows to view the forest while taking a shower. Nice toiletries were offered. Rooms had AC. The gardens contained trees and plants... More

We stayed at this hotel in July 2014. I found the staff friendly, but not all that accommodating. When we checked in, the resort was empty. They refused to move us to a king bed room because it would be a premium room and I didn't want to pay. Give me a break! Once we checked in, we had to... More

This place is beautiful. It's in the middle of the rainforest, so insect repellant is a must. The staff is amazing, I really enjoyed coming here. I went on a horseback ride ( one of the on sight activities), the view was incredible. you get to see Costa Ricas back country. Very cool. But it is very far away from... More

We loved Chachagua Rainforest Hotel! We had a tough time finding it with the GPS (coordinates didn't work for us), but a friendly man on the main street helped us get there. I can't imagine getting there without 4-wheel drive, especially with the rain, as the road is quite bumpy. However, the property is absolutely beautiful, and the private cabina... More

After almost 2 hours drive from San jose airport in a very nice road, we have more 10 minutes of bumpy rocky road but it was well worth it. The cabana and the entire hacienda are amazing, the open restaurant with all the delicious plates, the breakfast and the homemade bread and jelly with exotic fruits. The entire staff were... More

This hotel is not really near anything. I stayed here with my partner during a summer vacation and we adored it. The property is large, with multiple jungle trails on it (walking paths) and myriad birdwatching spots. All of the rooms are private bungalows. Ours was a separate, standalone building that was beautiful handcrafted wood. We loved the look and... More

We picked this hotel for its unique property. It backs onto a large rainforest with hiking trails, an organic farm, livestock, plenty of wildlife viewiing, etc...Our kids had a great time exploring the property and were able to see an old fashioned Costa Rican farm in action. My kids also loved the two night tours that Henry (the security guard)... More
