We didn't stay here but did do the two-hour Sarapiqui wildlife boat tour through Selva Verde and ate lunch there. We very much enjoyed both.
Got there late for the 9AM boat tour ($27pp), but since we were the only ones signed up it was no problem and the driver even stayed out a little longer for us. We saw a bare-throated tiger heron, several sleeping bats, several Amazon and ringed kingfishers, several impressive-looking basilisks, a keel-billed toucan, a few caimans, lots of mangrove swallows, several egrets, and lots of iguanas.
We loved the $15pp lunch buffet and really enjoyed watching the feeders others have described - saw collared aracaris, red-legged honeycreepers, Montezuma's and chestnut-headed oropendolas, blue-gray tanagers, great kiskadees, and a lineated woodpecker. Walked around a little after lunch but didn't have much luck with wildlife in the forest.
