My husband and I shared the two story Cabina 5 with our friend, Lynn, in late February, early March. I think we hold the record for longest stay at this resort (9 days). It was absolutely fabulous! The length of our stay allowed us to genuinely relax and forget about stresses at home/work, and explore the Osa Peninsula.
The staff at Copa de Arbol are the best I've ever encountered. Keeley is always cheerful and willing to help you with whatever you need. Mario is the sweetest man (kitchen manager, I think), who brought me tea, home-baked bread, and a coconut with a straw in it to our cabina when I was feeling a little under the weater. Ronnie Utah (as he calls himself) was a pleasure to interact with as he served us delicious food in the dining room. Alberto was our wonderful and accommodating guide to Corcovado. The mother-daughter team who cleaned our cabina every day were friendly and thorough. I really have nothing bad to say about any of the staff at Copa de Arbol.
You also have the opporturnity to meet many interesting people at this resort since you eat your meals in the same dining room and go on excursions together.
Wildlife and hiking at the resort were plentiful. We had the pleasure of seeing monkeys storm the dining room and then escape to the roof of our cabina, pausing long enough for us to take great pictures of them while they ate fruit from a nearby tree. The cove was great for swimming and paddle boarding.
The only complaints we had, and they were minor, were that the lovely wood lounges by the pool and chairs on the cabina decks were not very comfortable and could benefit from cushions, and there needs to be a place to put your clothes in the cabina.
We would return to Copa de Arbol in a heartbeat. It was a truly pleasurable trip at a great new resort!
