I just returned from a week-long visit to Gaia with my wife and two daughters (21 and 14 years). We have nothing but praise about the staff and facility. On arrival, we were greeted by staff and one of the owners while being welcomed with a fresh, cold fruit drink and ice cold towel. The facility is fabulous and the hilltop location affords a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean, the rainforest and the mountains. The sunsets are incredible. We saw wildlife at the hotel (monkeys, sloths, wild parakeets, multiple birds, iguanas. It is close to the beach (less than 10 min), the Manuel Antonio Park where you can see incredible wildlife close up and amazing beaches, and Quepos where you can have dinner, go shopping, or go to the market. Zip lining, canyoneering, white water rafting, and more is nearby and can be arranged with a simple phone call to your personal concierge. Fabio, our concierge was very accommodating. He knew us by name and knew our itinerary by heart. Changes could be made with a simple word or phone call. There are only 20 rooms, so it is not for young children. Our teenager and 21 year old both were very pleased with the entire Gaia experience. The spa is first-rate. If we return to the Manuel Antonio area in the future, we will definitely stay at Gaia!!
