4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Rice and beans are the staple diet but they offered a great variety of salad items, chicken or pork, white rice and excellent red beans, with several fruit drinks and finally rice pudding and fresh fruit ! The pineapple was amazing fresh taste! Clean, light, and airy restaurant setting overlooking the park and gorge. Very popular with locals at weekend!

The hiking trails down to the waterfall, the hummingbird garden, big cats, monkeys, birds are all extremely interesting. Be sure to go to... More

My third stay at this remarkable property, and it only gets better. The bedrooms, bathrooms and outdoor terrace are unique and exceptionally comfortable. The mountain valley is beyond beautiful, and the waterfall, birds, frogs etc. are great fun. Service was perfect and Daniel in the restaurant added to our enjoyment. A truly special place.

This was a great opportunity to see and experience the animals , birds and butterflies of Costa Rica... unhurried with time to have a Toucan perch on your hand....also you had to make sure you didn`t have any butterflies on you as you left their area. We also enjoyed the very tasty lunch buffet too

The pictures on the website are true to what the rooms look like and the amenities. The staff was always helpful and polite. If you want a quiet low key resort than this is the perfect place. We stayed for 4 days, which is just enough time to do everything and fully get a chance to leisurely take in everything... More

I don't think we could have ask for a better vacation. After being at the beach for a couple of days it was nice to be in cooler weather. This is the most beautiful hotel I have been to.

Luxury abounds, the stone Jacuzzi on the deck overlooking the cloud forest is amazing. All the little touches. The kids loved exploring the zoo area after normal park hours. Restaurant was only so-so.
