My husband and I travel extensively and have never desired to return to the same place twice until now. The Gaia is that impressive. First the resort is lush and beautiful. Surrounded by a reserve filled with trees, flowers and wonderful wildlife (iguanas and monkeys poolside anyone?) The views of Manuel Antonio and the pacific are amazing. Rooms are comfortable and well decorated with beautiful views. The spa is intimate and personalized with amazing therapies ( try the reflexology after a hike...ahhhh).The pool is an architectural marvel with waterfalls and multiple infinity layers. Plenty of lounger chairs too.The real reason to want to come back to Gaia is simply their customer service. They are the best I have come across. Somehow the owners ( who are on site and you will meet) have discovered the perfect design for taking care of their guests. The only way to describe it is that the staff genuinely care about meeting your requests. Nothing is to big or small. They do all of this with a sense of pride in their guests at the resort and without being intrusive or pretentious. Simply put you let them know what you want and it's taken care of. We were lucky enough to request a one on one cooking class with their chef in their kitchen one afternoon and made a wonderful dish right off the menu then sat down to enjoy it. What an experience. Bottom line is stay at Gaia. It's pampering at its finest.
