The property was beautiful! It is built within the rainforest so the scenery is wonderful. We ran into a lot of animals in their natural habitat while there such as spiders, lizards, iguanas, and even some sloths! There were 2 pools, a jacuzzi, tons of hammocks, a pool bar, a pool table, a ping pong table, 2 shops, and 2... More

It was a stopover for one night before going into the jungle for a Bribri Indigenous Peoples village experience, but would be a good place to base while exploring Puerto Viejo and the surrounding area.

We have just stayed here for three nights. The first impression of the standard jungle room was that it is below standard. Too small, poor ventilation and uncomfortable and noisy beds. On top of this, rooms are not cleaned until 5 or 6 pm. Two pools are advertised but only one us really usable. On the positive side, the food... More
