I want to begin my review by explaining something about Costa Rica. We have lived here for fourteen years. We have read 100+ of reviews by tourists good and bad. I want to say that Villa Lapas is in the rain forest, in the jungle. When you have "expectations" you will run into trouble. We knew for one- there are always bugs. Ants are abundant, so what! If we expect that the rooms will be fesh smelling as the Sheraton in your home state forget it! It is humid and hot. Our room was very clean and large with good lighting. The air worked very well and the shower was hot. The grounds of the hotel were wonderful. There are a lot of workers always cleaning, raking, etc. Our breakfast was great. We had the Tico breakfast each morning. The setting is by a river-perfect! The Skywalk tour was one of our best we have been on in Costa Rica. The five suspension bridges are impressive. My wife and I made it in two hours. It isn't easy but it can be done! The only problem was a small leak in the roof with refuse sifting down onto our bed. The iguanas play on the roof and sediment "lightly" rains down. Another problem which is not the hotel's problem- our neighbor turned on their TV at anbout 1:30 AM and it was on the rest of the morning- loud!
