My husband and I have not experienced staying with the Cuna del Angel; however, I can only imagine that it is heavenly. We have been eating at this quaint little establishment in the jungle and enjoying their spa options over the last almost 6 years. The food (in the restaurant called La Palapa) is superb and has never waivered from... More

Little hotel with charme. Is a real hotel, properly built and with good service, ca 4* Central Europe level. it is not cheap, but worth the price if you need a break from some of the so called eco lodges which are overpriced but don't offer much, eg to dry your stuff or have a good night of sleep ina...

We stayed two nights (July 19 & 20th, 2014) and enjoyed our stay. As others have said, the staff (esp. Rigoberto) were very, very professional and friendly. The on-site restaurant was absolutely first rate and all the meals we had there were fantastic. Don't go looking for anything better nearby - there isn't! Not even close. The pool was nice... More

The hotel and restaurant are lovely, the staff is attentive and professional, but the GARBAGE from the hotel on the main road (34) is absolutely unacceptable. The disposal and care for garbage is not representative of a small distinctive hotel claiming to be eco minded .

What a treat this hotel was! My parents, college-aged daughter and I stayed for three nights in two deluxe rooms. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The restaurant, pool and grounds were tranquil and lovely. Three of us used the spa services. Spa Prices were typical and we were able to book services without much advance notice. The restaurant...

A fine experience, but a whirlwind as we only scheduled one night at this fine hotel. The staff was super friendly, rooms were very clean, although the bed was not good for sleep. We ate at the Palapa restaurant on site, and it was truly fabulous. My wife and I had ordered the lobster risotto and the osso bucco, oh... More

We stayed two nights at this boutique hotel and had a great time!

This is a stunning boutique hotel overlooking the ocean. The hotel features a gourmet 100% gluten-free (and aiming at completely organic) restaurant. The gluten-free restaurant and the toucan that greeted us on our balcony were extra-special treats. Excellent food. Excellent staff. We highly recommend! With special kudos to Rigo and Danny!! Thanks for the excellent service, guys!
