We just got back from our stay at Lapa Rios and I cannot say enough about EVERYTHING they do there. My husband and I took our 7 year old daughter and we had the most amazing experience. The "hotel" itself is absolutely beautiful with all of the bungalows offering postcard quality views of the rainforest, ocean and wildlife. We were originally in cabin #10 and it was a bit of a hike to the common areas but they quickly moved us once a closer room became available (though even the hike from cabin 10 was enjoyable with many scenic seating areas and fresh water available to stop and rest if necessary). The staff went above and beyond at every opportunity and really seemed to genuinely want you to have the best experience during your time there - they felt more like new friends than staff. They offer a really nice variety of tours through the hotel and were able to connect us with a fabulous tour operator that we did a day long dolphin/scuba/wildlife sanctuary trip with (Chasing Tides - DEFINITELY recommend them as well). Our 2 favorite tours through Lapa Rios were the visit to the school they support (we played a fun game of baseball with the kids!) and the night walk (Edwin, the tour guide is superb!). The memories from our stay at Lapa Rios will last a lifetime. The facility, people, food, pool, views, guides -- the best of everything. I really cannot say enough. Worth every penny!
