We stayed at the Villa Lapas for 4 nights from 20th Jan. The grounds are nice & it is interesting looking for frogs/toads & birds which included scarlet macaws, toucans, ibis & trogans. However, although we were aware the accommodation was going to be basic, it was worse than expected. Our room smelt very musty & it was the only... More

Our family of 4 (son 17, daughter 14) spent less than 24 hours here and wish it had been longer. The setting is unique and special. The rooms weren't great but were adequate. The buffet food was OK. The toad that greeted us on the way to dinner was a fun surprise. The entertainment was excellent. The shops were full... More

The highlight, for us, was searching out the frogs and toads that emerged by the multitudes at sunset. Our children enjoyed the swimming pool, and the pool table and foosball tables were big hits as well.... More

We stayed at the Hotel Villa Lapas for 2 nights on our way back from Manual Antonio. Lapas is the Spanish word for the macaw, which are native to the area. We saw macaws from the nearby Carara Biological Reserve and from the Rio Tarcoles bridge. Even better were the 3-4 toucans flying around the hotel. The rooms were smaller... More
