My wife and I went to CR to celebrate our 25th anniversary and also attend my nephew's wedding. Looked through many reviews and then settled on Gaia and were very pleased we did. The property is in beautiful spot up on a hill and overlooks the Pacific from a distance. There is a shuttle down to the beach. The views from the rooms and the restaurant, especially the sunset views, were fantastic. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. The staff all go out of their way to be helpful. The breakfast that comes with the room is first rate. The spa is great and my wife recommends Milton as a great masseuse. The pool even has great views over the hill and a swim up bar. There were only a few suggestions I have for management: Improve the top decks of the suites. After the rains the water pooled on our deck making it difficult to use and there was no cover for the lounge chairs so they were soaked. And don't have the maids constantly shut off the AC in the rooms. if guests turn it on, leave it on. But these were minor and we'd go back. It's a great service and a great property.
