My wife and I stayed four nights in February and can confirm all the positive reviews--lovely rooms, terrific views, great service, etc.
We found the isolated location to be no problem even without a rental car because
1) L&L arranged to pick us up at the airport and be driven there. The driver (Lilly) and her daughter were absolutely charmingly. They explained the sights throughout the drive. Far
better than driving a rental car on a unfamiliar route. Cost was reasonable compared to car
.2) Debbie set us up with two incredible guides. Our kayak trip to Canyo Negro with Leonardo was our best day in CR. I had been skeptical but Debbie assured me we would love it; she was right. We also had a great tour of El Silencio with Donald; Debbie found other people so we could split the cost. In short, if you explain what you are interested in doing, Debbie can direct you to an excellent day.
The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful, both the food and being served by the ever-smiling Dora. She is a real gem.
To be totally honest, the dinners were varied: some very good some just average. But I would never choose to drive into town and back out after dark. The happy hour drinks were excellent.
