I can't say enough good things about this hotel. If you want a feel of how real Costa Ricans live but keep it on the fancier side, this is your place. I've stayed deep in the jungle with some Ticos and while this place is much fancier than that, it still has the feel of that experience with open air bathroom, not fully enclosed rooms (no window panes, walls don't go all the way to the ceiling) and only cool water showers. This is also an Eco conscious hotel. No chemicals in the pool and they encourage beach cleanup (the beaches are magnificent here and very sparse with people).
There are many monkeys that hang around in the trees here too.
I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. They are all super wonderful. Super super wonderful. Very gay friendly, as are a lot of places in Costa Rica even if they are not strictly gay.
This is a very romantic and relaxing getaway hotel. Just be aware that it is not a very American style place. You're going to get a more Tico style experience without roughing it too much.
I hope you have as much enjoyment of this place as we did.
