My spouse and I had the pleasure of staying for a couple of blissful nights at the start of our first visit to Costa Rica in January 2013 and then fortuitously a night prior to our leaving in February. I find myself at a loss for words to adequately describe the lovely experience , the casitas and grounds were beautiful and the meals were exquisite. The staff were incredible ,helpful, friendly and faultless to a t and the owner operators, Berni and His beautiful wife Nhi were superb, people you wish you could be close friends with for much longer than a too brief visit. The friendly dogs completed the ambience of perfect pura vida. Having Berni arrange a car rental which was delivered to the hotel and left there on our departure removed what is ofttimes a stressful period at the start and end of a holiday, the choice of small, 4wheel drive suv as recommended by Berni being perfect for exploring CR, albeit a necessity on some of the more adventurous parts of our trip. Our only regret is not staying longer and using the place as a base to explore the Central Valley environs, hopefully next time.
