This hotel was absolutely perfect. First, the drive is very easy on paved roads up and down the mountainside. Once at the hotel we were greeted warmly and surprised with a room upgrade to one of the mountain suites with a fridge, microwave, etc... The view was extraordinary! We stayed on our balcony taking it all in. The epitome of relaxation. We had dinner at the hotel which was good and were also able to drive quickly to the store and surrounding towns. It was also close to the Guayabo National Monument which was really interesting to see. The next morning it was a decent drive to Irazu volcano though if you don't rent a car the hotel offers trips to the volcanoes and other places. We would come back here in a heart beat.
