Though it is difficult to get to, it is worth the trip. We were only going to stay one night, but decided to stay a second. The staff here was excellent especially Isaac (worked in reception) and Anna (tour guide). The deluxe rooms have to be the coolest rooms I have ever stayed in. They have lights that can be adjusted for the mood, a stone looking fireplace, a bed with canapoy, great views from balcony (with hammock, 2 person jacuzzi, table, and humming bird feeder that was pretty active), the bathroom was huge, very outdoors looking with concrete to mimic stone. The bathroom has a waterfall in it that you can turn on, another 2 person jucuzzi tub, a shower that has a waterfall in the open, another shower that is enclosed, a machine that will heat oil and dispense aromas (free), the bathroom is amazing. On the property they were still repairing it from the earthquake, but it wasn't very noisy. This place is like a mini zoo, but a lot closer encounters. They have a humming bird garden(outside, but with shelters and benches) where you can have them perched on your finger and feed them, they have several types of birds (we fed the tucans), they have a butterfly garden that also shows you each stage of the butterfly as they grow(open enclosure), there are several large cats, exotic frogs(you walk in open enclosure with many types of frogs even the poison dart frog), snakes of costa rica caged on display, bird enclosure (most are flying around a very large open air enclosure with you), their are monkeys (we got to feed), they also have a farm home they built with only the tools of 200 years ago with someone dressed in period and have a cow that provides fresh milk, which they make cheese for you and other things (It was free for us, not sure if they charge). We had a tour guide Anna that took us to these places, she was very helpful and I would recommend hiring her. Most of those listed you can go in on your own for free. Their are also several large waterfalls to view. It takes a lot of stairs and walking to get there, but one of them is 120 feet and the coolest part is that if you look at the center and count for 4 seconds then look at the mountain beside it, this creates a magic eye that makes it appear that the mountain side is moving. Some of the paths were still closed due to the earthquake damage, but there were a lot of workers there repairing those things. There is a lot of stairs and a lot of walking here, but to get to most places they will provide a shuttle if you would like. The places aren't very far, it is just the stairs that take time if you do decide to walk. The food here is good and very, very reasonably priced compared to all the other hotels I stayed at in Costa Rica, even the room service is cheap. This place does not nickle and dime you like most of the other places. They also have very reasonable in room massages available that we took advantage of. They also provide computers and free internet at the reception. I could keep going on and on about this place. It is a must for costa rica and I will come again. Though a local can get to the airport from here in an hour, I would allow two hours due to the road being in bad condition and very confusing, just like the rest of Costa Rica. Great place!
