My husband planned a surprise trip for my 30th B-day and wow did he do a great job picking the hotel. You will not be disappointed here. The service was wonderful and the entire staff makes you feel at home. The food was outstanding, the best we had on our entire trip. They really want you to have a wonderful experience and their love for the country shows.
It is about a 4 hour drive from San Jose which is the only possible downfall. However, you do get a nice drive down the coast which was an adventure all its own. Definitely get a 4 wheel drive and take a canopy tour. They will even have someone come to the hotel for a massage if that is something you want to do.
The rooms are amazing with views of the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other. We spent every evening with the doors open, watching the sunset. Beautiful. People around the area come to this hotel just for the views and the food so staying there makes it that much easier to enjoy.
