Nancy and the crew of the Majestic were fabulous. She has several properties and we stayed at a couple of them. The wood work was outstanding, landscape that made me jealous and staff that were excellent, the little restaurant/bar up the road were perfect location. My kids and family had a blast. FYI power does go out from time to time in Costa Rica and that's just the way it is so be prepared, I had flashlights for my kids just in case. The only problems we had had nothing to do with the Majestic. Both of my kids got sick, one with an ear infection (from our previous trip to the Nicoya Pennisula) and the other with a severe allergic reaction to the local horses requires an epi pen (that we didn't have) on stand by since we were so far from a hospital/clinic. Nancy helped direct on us both which was a lifesaver. She helped with directions and set up to the local attractions, zip lines, mountain tours, horseback riding, serpentarium and fishing. This area is rather remote and GPS really isn't a ton of help, as we are very American and count on our electronics to make things happen. We had a great time. And my younger son wanted to take the resident dog "sayso" home with us.
