We booked a package trip to Cost Rica and spent 5 days and 4 nights at Milarepa. We had not idea what the hotel would be like but once we got there we fell in love. With only 4 bungalows you feel like a VIP. The bungalows are very nice, the open bathroom and canopy bed were quite special. We were just feet from the beach, going to sleep and waking up with the sound of the waves is something we will never forget. We are not used to humidity so the open air bungalow was a little warm, but the fan does help.
The staff was great, Linus, Maria and Eric were very friendly and the daily menus are great. We loved sushi night and the mojitos! The beaches are great and surfing was not far away. The hammocks and pool were also very nice. The staff is there to help arrange anything you need, we enjoyed the zip lines, surfing, massages, local restaurants and shopping. It is a special place.
I have traveled the world and usually say "been there done that", but Milarepa is a place I would like to return to someday. It was a great place to really unwind, forget about TV, cell phones and traffic...Pura Vida!!!!!!!
