In a country full of "American style" resorts, this is a refreshing, beautiful and very Costa Rican place to visit and enjoy. The hotel is in the middle of the mountain, 3 km away from a small town named Cachi.
Once you get to the hotel, the first thing you will notice is the personalized attention that you receive from the staff and the owner (don Jose), this cordiality will be present throughout your stay. The hotel has around 6 bungalows surrounded only by nature, they have a basic but modern style, also, some of them are equipped with a beautiful external shower (ask for it). You need to consider that this place is eco-friendly, so you won't find as many electrical devices as some other places (no tv, no A/C), but most of these things are not necessary at all in this place keeping in mind its context.
In the restaurant don Jose you can enjoy delicious food prepared by the owner himself, so you can expect quality in each selection. Also the views from the restaurant and outside of it are really nice, green everywhere with some birds, insects or small animals.
Although the weather was warm and sunny during the day, at night it was misty and pretty cold, so it is recommended to take some warm clothes. Also, considering that you will be in the middle of the mountain, you can expect some insects inside your room (ants, spiders) but nothing scary or dangerous.
In conclusion, it is a really natural, really Costa Rican lovely place to visit, try talking to Jose, he's very friendly, enjoy the nature, the food, and most importantly, relax.
