From the drive up the mountain to get to this place to seeing the view from our room, this place was awesome from top to bottom. Staff was very friendly and took good care of us. The view from our room was nothing short of spectacular. We had a junior suite. The views from the restaurant were also very awesome and the food at the restaurant was decent as well. We both went to the spa on our last day there but neither of us have ever been to get a massage before so we couldn't really say whether it was good or bad or even if it was a good value. It was relaxing for both of us so I guess we got what we asked for. This place is not like a cleared out space for a resort. The resort is built in to the jungle so you feel like you are really far away and in a very natural environment. During our stay we saw toucans flying around and there is even a little area labeled as "frog crossing". They are poison dart frogs though so I had to resist the urge to catch them. We were able to make it to Manuel Antonio within an hour or so, the Adventure Park canopy tour within another hour in the other direction and you could go into Jaco for food with a 15-20 minute drive. If we ever go back, I would absolutely stay here again. One thing to note is that there are some pretty big spiders all over the place, but they all just chill in their webs...they aren't running around attacking people or anything. Some people can't handle even being near them though.
