Rio Perdido was wonderful with great staff and very nice facilities. The pools and thermal river were amazing! Don't miss the hotel's adventures including mountain biking, canyon tubing and zip lining, as all these were very exciting and worth the money. (Note: Mountain biking is hard and only recommended for those with good experience). Their food is also wonderful! You can order off the menu for $15-25/plate. There was also a lunch and dinner buffet, which was extraordinary, for $25/person. I only have a few negatives about the hotel. First, it is within 1-2.5 hours of most things but is not close to anything. For that reason, transport is expensive, especially if you plan to leave the hotel each day to see the rest of Costa Rica. Somewhat related to that, I think it would be good if the hotel had a designated person who could help with excursions away from the hotel. The front desk was always willing to call and find out information for us but we generally had to know what we wanted to do and where beforehand. It would be nice to have someone more dedicated to this job. Other than these 2 things, the hotel was wonderfully comfortable and amenities were great!
