If you are looking for a 5 star, all inclusive resort then this is not the place for you. But if you want to experience real Costa Rica then you have found the right place! Princess de la Luna is an amazing property located in the middle of the jungle with gorgeous volcano views, trails, wildlife and waterfalls! The house is a very large and perfect for a big group. It is a bit on the rustic side though and I thought it could have used a deep cleaning of the whole place and and maybe some updating of a few things. Also the pools and jaquzzi were not really in working order which was disappointing. Other that that we were quite happy with the place. There are large sitting areas that made it perfect for our large group to hang out together and admire the views! Finding the place was pretty easy although a bit of a trek but worth the effort to get there! It is also quite near to La Fortuna where there are shops, resaurants and grocery stores and its a short distance from zip line adventures and the hot springs.
The customer service was as good as it gets!! Although i think he was surprised to see us when we arrived, I can't say enough great things about Jonathan. He made every effort to keep our party of 10 happy and busy. He gave several recommendations for fun things to do in the area, set up activities to the hot springs and zip lines for us, got us great deals, hired taxis when we didn't want to drive, gave us directions when did drive, cooked us food when we set up meals with him in advance and even ordered pizza for us when we didn't give him enough notice to cook dinner! As an added treat on the day of our departure he demonstrated how he made fresh sugar cane juice which we got to
drink with our breakfast! He couldn't have been more
Overall we had an awesome time staying here and would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting something a little off the beaten track!
