Top notch in every way. Amazing service, great rooms, fantastic views, facilities, and dining. In a country filled with lovely places to stay, The Gaia is at the top of the list. I thought it was a great value as well. Couldn't have been better.

we were only 3 nights, it has great time. We used the spa and I conside some improvements can be done. The food was good but I think is over valued. The attention was extraordinary. I will return if I have the opportunity!

This place was amazing! The staff was so great and the facilities were fantastic. I feel like a celebrity every moment. The most amazing part is that every staff member knew my name! This is a small boutique hotel in Marco Antonio. One of the most expensive but well worth it. I would stay many more times

From the minute we came through the gate the people here were fabulous. They had drinks waiting for us. They explained everything that the hotel has to offer. They have a wonderful restaurant with a fabulous view of the water and sunset. The room we had was a family suite with plenty of room and a view. Very clean. Anything... More

I stayed at hotel Gaia recently with my girlfriend for the weekend and know this to truly be a 5 star hotel/resort. From the moment we got there we were treated first class. Highly recommend this resort.

We loved this hotel! We were looking for peace and restoration and it exceeded all expectations. The hotel is located on beautiful property. Just sitting in the restaurant and watching the sunset is enough to reset you. The staff are all outstanding. We especially loved Aldo who always stopped by to talk to us. I have a food allergy that... More

We booked this hotel sort of last minute as our geography was faulty and we were originally way up north but wanted to be in Manuel Antonio. We are five traveling so it can be hard to find accommodations for that number. The Gaia seems to have added a family section as the room we had was able to accommodate... More

What an amazing stay we had at GAIA! Food was great (a la carte breakfast is free), daily shuttle to downtown Manuel Antonio and to the park was a plus too. Rooms are immaculate and the spa was good too. They do a free tour of the reserve 3 times a week. Make sure you do it! It's worth it.... More

David at Hotel Gaia is amazing!!! While I didn't stay at the hotel, I went there for lunch with my sister-in- law. We were greeted at the entrance and offered a ride by golf cart up to the restaurant. While the restaurant is beautiful, we decided to ask for a table at the pool. Our server/waiter, David, took us to... More
