We just came back from a week stay at the Prana Rainforest Retreat. A dream come true!
Being pampered by two excellent hosts, we enjoyed customized breakfasts made from fresh and natural ingredients, some grown right on the property, daily massages in a very relaxing environment surrounded by the beauty of the Manuel Antonio National Park and its fauna and excellent restaurants and activity recommendations (our hosts have arranged for a private horse-riding and rafting day).
We stayed in the private villa in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle. The accommodation is outstanding. We've been amazed by the high quality of the décor and the attention to details. From taking a shower almost in the middle of the jungle where we could observe the monkeys playing around in the trees to a dip in our private pool at any time, our privacy was always respected. It was like living in our own place. Equipped with an alarm system, a safe, a little wet bar, microwave, coffee machine and Wi-Fi, everything is there to fulfill our needs.
The "one couple at the time" formula allows to have all the attention you need and experience really personalized service. We were asked about our personal tastes, allergies or dislikes in order to prepare the food according to our preferences always using the fresher and best ingredients available. The last night, we even asked to be served dinner at the property. It ended up being the best dinner we had over the week, having experienced the best places of Manuel Antonio. What a dinner! You must try the "Yoko Ono tuna" Not only was the food amazing, our wine glass never got empty before being refilled, the soft music in the background was of excellent taste and just at the right sound level. It was a dream dinner by the poolside.
The massages were a pure bliss! Whether we chose the Thai massage or the deep tissue one, they were perfectly executed and very soothing. It added to the relaxing mood of the jungle villa.
If you are looking for a romantic couple vacation, this is the best place you can find in Costa Rica! The catering to your ever need, the privacy of your own villa, the scenery of the jungle at your feet and the attention you get by your hosts will make this the perfect vacation for any couple. Being in the customer service industry for more than 24 years, I can assure you that this is true luxury and true customer service.
