we spent two nights here on our tour and found it a wonderful experience. whilst there were a lot of people about we found we could get away on our won and explore the surrounding countryside and the Hacienda itself had excellent view of the volcanoes in the national park. The tour around the park was well organised and good... More

The rooms were very nice. We were in a one bedroom suite with access to restaurant and outdoor bar. The one day tour attraction with horseback, zipline, and river rafting was what made it worth it . We were not impressed with the staff or food.

We enjoyed our stay here as part of our Costa Rica Monkey Tour in April 2015. Our room was spacious, the shower was large. I enjoyed the hammock just outside the room. The restaurant had a great atmosphere & the food was tasty. This hotel is right by horse back riding, zip-lining, water tubing, & hot springs, all adventures we... More

Had a late lunch here, but what a horrible experience! Whoever is doing the cooking here must really hate food. My casado had plain rice, plain beans straight from the can, a salad without any dressing (and staff looked annoyed when I went over to ask for some - they didn't bother to walk around snd see whether everything was...

This hacienda is a very nice place which offers lots of activities such as hot springs, tubing, canopy, horse riding, etc... It is a farm, so beware, there are animals (cows, horses, dogs) all around. Don't be surprised when you're woken up at 05.00 in the morning by the sounds of cows. The enviroment is quite ok. The rooms are... More

I stayed here for three days and I absolutely loved it. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were nice and spacious, food was delicious, and it had so many fun activities available through the tours offered for guests. I will definitely come back again!!!!!

For me the only positive point is the location : close to the park and they have hot springs and waterfalls on the domain of the hotel. The staff is not very helpful , they are keen in having large groups either to stay overnight or just for lunch (when we arrived , we could not use the restaurant because... More
