This is the most amazing place. Very romantic. The chef/owner Jose is a master. The food in the restaurant is very good. There is a pond below the restaurant with fish. The fish doesn't have to travel very far to your table. There is also this amazing waterfall and there is an area you can sit by it to enjoy... More

We stayed for two days at Hotel Quelitales and couldn't have had a better time. Located in the middle of a mountain valley, we stayed in a very luxurious cottage called Suite de Reinitas with an outdoor shower and a wonderful view of the waterfall Doña Ana. José, the owner, took care of us like we were family and greeted... More

Paradise about 1:45 hours from Juan Santa Maria Airport. Comfortable, secluded cabin on a hillside cloud forest. Great food at the restaurant. Best lodging and food on our trip. I recommend the trout almondine.

My husband and son and I visited the property on a day trip and ate at the restaurant. We live in Costa Rica so we didn't need to stay at the hotel to enjoy the atmosphere. We can visit again whenever we want and we plan to. I will just review the grounds and the restaurant because that is what... More

We were delighted to finally find our lodgings for the night located in one of our favorite areas of Costa Rica, the Orosi Valley. Tucked further into one of the valley's many recesses we had arrived at Quelitales. Great little restaurant with professional well trained staff and lovely bungalows with a view to the lush forest and a waterfall. Peace... More

A beautiful spot at the end of a valley above the village of Cachi. We slept in a 5-star cabin with a view of a waterfall, surrounded by the forested hillside. After a career in the kitchens of the world, Chef-owner Jose has returned to the village where he was raised. We dined on trout raised on the property and... More
