Loved this place. The couple who LIVE there and RUN the place (Loki and Mauren) are very chill and helpful. Unfortunately, they did not see much of our booking monies, as we booked through the old name, Bahari Beach Resort - these people own part of it, but now live abroad. Loki's family owns the land and do all the work. I felt a bit duped by the Bahari folks who promised us a "candle light dinner on the beach" upon arrival, which never happened because the local couple never heard - totally fine, though, because it was so wonderful!
Of all the places we stayed in Costa Rica, I (surprisingly) like the bathroom of our beach tent the best! It was so spacious; an open concept.
It was helpful that we rented a car so we could go and come as we please, as it is a bit isolated.
Alex, the guy on staff during the day was also amazing.
WONDERFUL place to relax, read a book, float in the pool, and recover from all the touristy activities. Although, Loki is a naturalist and adventure guide and can take you rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, etc. Make sure to visit Marina Ballena first thing one morning. A special treat we had was a bunch of monkeys coming in over our tent through the trees one afternoon!
