Although we went during the "green" season, the weather was relatively nice--with just a few rainy days during our week. Great weather to lounge by the pool or travel to Manuel Antonio Park.
The studio rooms are definitely quite compact. Don't expect a bathtub or large area for your clothes or toiletries. Sliding doors hide the closet-like sink/toilet/shower area, but the quality of materials used are quite nice and two can easily fit into the large shower. The TV is also small, but I suppose most people don't go to CR to watch tv ;)
The linens on the beds and covers are softly luxurious and high thread count. Great sleeping with the sound of the rain and great A/C.
If you're looking for a huge hotel/spa, this place may not be for you... but if you frequent lovely, small boutique hotels, try Gaia with it's super friendly staff, great service, and wonderful views. This is not a hotel on the beach in Hawaii, but has it's own charms nonetheless.
