I can't rate this hotel highly enough. If you have an early flight, it is only 15 minutes from the airport (20-25 mins during the day), yet the hotel is an oasis of tranquility in a gorgeous mountain setting. Stunning artistic rooms with thoughtful touches like cutlery/plates, free minibar (non-alcoholic) and boxed breakfast for those with an early start. 2-3 hours' worth of attractive hiking trails through jungle & orchards on the premises (though be prepared for quite a few steps!). Excellent food and cocktails. Wonderful pool. Equally perfect for honeymooners and families, and a wonderful place to end (or start) a Costa Rican trip. Easily the nicest hotel we stayed in.
