This hotel is a long way from anywhere, its a long trip along a gravel road and I am so pleased we arranged private transport to get here. Once we arrived, we were greeted by staff, personally shown around the hotel by 'golf cart' and taken to our room. The room was large, with a king sized bed & a patio, outdoor shower (as well as indoor bath / shower), a large bathroom - what else could someone wish for. Meals were very nice, staff were very nice. I must make mention of one of the gentlemen (perhaps the bar manager) who was so very nice. Nothing was too much trouble, he happily spent time chatting with me about his glorious non alcoholic cocktails. There is a very nice pool - with 3 jacuzzi's - these are just glorious after a long walk in the National Park.
Without a vehicle, we walked up to the National Park entrance and spent several hours (5) wandering thru the park. From the hotel to the park it was about 3km. The river is glorious, we never swam in it however there was a track that lead to a part of the river where guests could swim.
The staff arranged a trip caving for us, we were collected and dropped back to the hotel at the end of the day. Another great experience.
On a negative, was the lost power: but what else can one expect in the wet season of Costa Rica: it is going to rain, there will be thunder & lightning and power going out is something we are accustomed to.
