The Gaia is truly paradise. We were in a Studio room for 4 nights and a suite for the last 2 nights. Both rooms were beautiful. The studio is much smaller but is laid out well, so we loved both types of rooms. The view from the Gaia is unparalleled. The hotel itself meshes flawlessly with the jungle. Every morning we had a delicious breakfast before heading out to explore for the day. Upon arriving back at the hotel in the late afternoon, we would immediately go to one of the pools. We were always able to find one of the pools that we could swim in alone. The way the hotel is laid out allows guests complete privacy if you want it. Yader was our sundown bartender and was excellent. The sunset is incredible from any area of the hotel. We had ceviche and seared tuna off the tapas menu which was delicious. We tried many excellent surrounding restaurants and decided to have dinner onsite at La Luna for Valentine's Day. It was easily one of the best meals we have had anywhere, ever. We felt like all we had to do was wish for things and they happened. The staff couldn't do enough to make sure every detail of our trip went perfectly. Fabio was always in the office, smiling and eager to apply his knowledge of the area or make phone calls for our adventures. The golf cart would show up in minutes of our asking to take us down the hill and towels were waiting on us to go to the beach. I have travelled all over the world and this hotel ranks at the top of my list. If you are coming to this area, don't hesitate to stay at the Gaia.
