Stayed here two nights at the start of our trip and were so glad we did. This hotel had hands-down the friendliest staff. Very knowledgable about the area and had good recommendations. They arranged a tour to Poas volcano, which was worth the one hour drive each way. Their coffee tour was a somewhat strenuous walk, but was worth it as it was very informative. Learned a lot from the coffee tasting part of it as well. Food in restaurant was very good to excellent and variety was good, although dining service was sometimes a little slow. Loved the ceviche. Stayed in El Cafetal room, which was just beautiful in all respects. The resort is close to airport for convenience, but would have felt cheated if we only stayed one night. The laid back atmosphere in this incredibly beautiful Plantation Inn was a perfect way to start our trip.
