This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and I had high hopes - and my expectations were met and exceeded. Costa Rica is beautiful, and Gaia Hotel is truly the best!! The hotel is set into a beautiful hill amidst magnificent grounds of foliage and wildlife. The room was huge and well done - we stayed in a suite. We had a balcony as well, which was great to hang out on and had fantastic views. The amenities of the hotel were also great - free wifi, a small but perfectly adequate fitness center, beautiful infinity pools (with a pool bar!) set into the hill with amazing views, and a fantastic spa - with more treatments offered than you can imagine. My husband and I partook in many of them and were so happy! But, the thing that really sets this hotel apart from others - besides its beauty and amenities - is the hotel staff. I have traveled around the world and have not yet encountered a group of people like the staff at Gaia. They are beyond friendly and helpful. There is a true warmth and friendliness to them, and they go out of their way to help you. Anything you want, they try to make it happen - and they do it with a smile. One of the hotel owners was also around, and he went out of his way to chat with us on several occasions. The drivers take you anywhere in town that you want to go, and they are a kind, friendly bunch. This place is truly the best - from its beauty, to the amenities, to the very special group of people who work there. I hope one day to encounter a hotel as wonderful as this one in the rest of my world travels.
