Wonderful experience - gardens were outstanding. David & Cindy were the perfect host, food was good, but the view was incredible. Everyone should experience in Costa Rica!

Just returned from this little slice of heaven. David and Cindy were gracious hosts. What they have carved out is a little slice of heaven in Costa Rica. They have made wonderful floral gardens with many native plants which are beautiful,; the one drawback is ... There is a lot of walking up and down hills. Mostly rock covered hills... More

I was here for a medium sized business dinner. Ambience is good. The views are impressive. Even thou there is a roof, most of the seats are in the open. You can watch what I think is an artificial waterfall from the restaurant, that is located on top of the mountain. The Bar is "Self serve", with a nice variety... More

Standing atop the mountain you look... More
