The view is exactly as described. Incredible when the clouds parted. The room with the rain shower and Jacuzzi was HUGE. We just sat on the porch for hours, took it all in, listened to the birds, and loved it. The massage was great, the hike on the grounds was awesome, our first rain forest experience. The pool was fun with a great pool bar and happy hour.
Traveling to and from La Fortuna got tiresome. it is about a 25 minute trek each way. I think if we come again to this area we will stay at one of the hot springs resorts. Finally, there have been comments before about the staff--nothing bad, but they just seem sort of laissez faire about how they approach you and your needs. Given what we paid for this resort, fairly high on any scale and huge for Costa Rica, I honestly expected more. Here is my object lesson. It was Easter weekend. We inquired about church services. Front desk staff indicated they did not know. I asked them if they could inquire about this and let me know, they declined. We did find some info in the room on this, and then it turned out to be wrong--we wasted an hour on easter sunday. I find this inexcusable.
Still, you can't beat the view (and the breakfast was lovely, though they might have changed it up a bit each day)
