Zephyr Palace is appropriately named, because it certainly feels palatial! Perched on top of a mountain, we enjoyed incredible views from everywhere on the property - including our room. We'd rented a 4x4 for the trip (definitely recommended), so we drove down the mountain to the private beach lined with cabanas and lounge chairs. Some of our traveling group saw monkeys on the trek down to the beach, and we all spotted toucans and macaws from various places around the hotel. The Villa Calletas pool is very nice, but we always lounged in/by the private Zephyr Palace infinity pool (with more spectacular views!). We travelled during the off season (July), so our traveling group of 4 were essentially the only Zephyr Palace guests. Very attentive wait staff, with poolside and beachside service. Gustavo was extremely helpful. Everyone was friendly. The food was just okay, but you don't go to Costa Rica for the food! We stayed in the Egyptian Room. It was gorgeous, and the decorations were beautiful and very detailed.
Bottom line, I would recommend this hotel to friends, and I would visit again.
