My boyfriend and I stayed at The Flying Crocodile for four nights in November... and everything about our stay was AWESOME! Petra and Andrea are wonderful hostesses and made us feel very welcome. The food in the restaurant is very good. :) The rooms are unique and comfortable, and very clean. They really take good care of the hotel and the grounds and it shows. Lots of beautiful wildlife around too, we saw 12 howler monkeys in a tree one afternoon and you can hear them all day. We ate a yummy breakfast each morning which was included in our stay. The pool area is great to hang around at, the beach is gorgeous, and there's a white sand beach a short hike away... very secluded... worth the walk. We didn't pay close enough attention on their website where it clearly tells you how to get there... our GPS took us through a pretty deep river, there are easier ways there, so just look on the website or ask Petra and Andrea. ;) hahaha!! We didn't know what we were doing, was our first time in Costa Rica, the GPS has a mind of it's own.
