I wanted to end my 10 day trip in the Cloud Forest with a stay closer to the airport and chose the Bougainvillea because I love photographing flowers and that hotel's gardens made up my mind for me.
The room was beautiful and the terrace huge. I didn't care for the restaurant but I usually don't care for that type of dining and prefer smaller, local eateries. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Everything about the property was first class. One caveat however...
If you book a room, try to get one garden side. Standing on the terrace in the evening and early morning hearing traffic and cars pulling up to the hotel and people waiting for their vehicles and talking took away from the panoramic views of the mountains. The views were great but the noise detracted from the experience. I presume the garden side rooms would have been quieter and listening to the birds rather than the buses would have been my preference.
Great place and super experience my last couple of days in Costa Rica.
