This was by far the best place I've ever stayed in Costa Rica. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was super comfortable, and the views were amazing. Service was professional and very attentive, but never stiff. The pool area is great for relaxing, and they have a neat little nature trail that would be great for families, or folks not looking to do a big hike. I also did a horseback riding excursion to some nearby waterfalls, and it was great. Our guide was really knowledgable, stopping to tell us about local plants and animals. The location is beautiful, each morning I ate breakfast watching tropical birds and lizards in the trees surrounding the restaurant.
My only complaint is the food situation. The hotel is far from anything else, and so you have to eat there, either at the pool, or in the restaurant. The food is expensive for what it is, and not that great. It was fine for the two nights that I was there, but I would not have wanted to eat at the restaurant again. Portions are small, and the food is average. With a bit of work on the food situation, this would be a top-notch spot.
