Found canaima online so it was a random pick. And the best I could have made! After booking i looked at some of the reviews. Some people were opposed to the location uphill, I was pleasantly surprised as it is not much more then a equally pleasant stroll and it gets you away from the bustle of Santa Teresa Centre,...

We were staying at Canaima for 12 nights in one of the large rooms and have nothing but good things to say. Very airy room with nice decor and a small but sufficient kitchen area. Great with the swingbed on the veranda for naps and relaxation. Superfriendly staff, at the front desk as well as housekeeping. The owner Juan Carlos... More

I just can say everything was perfect the staff, the room, the common area... if you just want a chill place to rest and enjoy the nature you have to stay there. You have the feeling you would be living on a tree house. One of the nicest places I've ever been would recommend totally to all my family and... More

First of all, the staff was awesome and super helpful prior to arriving as well as while we were there (I literally emailed them a million times). They helped book activities, ATVs, cabs and recommended dining spots. The hotel was just really cool... a great vibe, a refreshing pool, large deck relaxation area (complete with hot tub), howling monkeys and... More

Our many thanks to Juan Carlos, Juan Fernando, and Marta for a wonderful week long vacation at Canaima Chill House. Our family of 6 including 3 children (ages 8, 12, and 13), and grandma (age 75) stayed here this past week. While there is always room for improvement - what stood out most was the graciousness and friendly, helpful attitude... More

My favorite place we stayed in Costa Rica! The ambience is just perfect and the staff is incredibly helpful. I stayed there with a friend but am going to make a point of going back with my fiance because it was an incredibly romantic setting. The room was beautiful and there was a big private outdoor area. It is up... More

Wonderful nature experience -- a beautiful place to sleep and to take in the tropical rainforest. My family only stayed for two nights, wish it was more. We didn't have a reservation, but Jorge (the wonderful and friendly receptionist) said he could convert one room to meet our needs for 4 people. We came back after grocery shopping and he... More

My husband and I stayed here while travelling Costa Rica on Honeymoon and it is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best places we have stayed. The location (although up a massive hill!) is fantastic, remote, private and with great access to the local wildlife... The wake up call from Howler Monkeys is a highlight! The B&B... More

We loved Canaima! We did one of their packages for our honeymoon and they planned everything for us which we could not have done without! Beautiful hotel. Very quiet and relaxing. Great staff! Will be back!

You are deep in the jungle. There are monkeys, bats, birds right outside. We stayed in a second floor bungalow. It was super private. The hanging swing beds are just so inviting. You can't help but "chill" at this place - as the name suggests! The owner and front desk person were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. No complaints. I... More
