My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in late April (2 week honeymoon). I would stay here again.
Positives: The staff really is exceptional - very friendly and helpful. Definitely ask them for recommendations! We took the horseback riding tour to the Nauyaca waterfalls and went to Tortillas Flats, in Jaco for dinner (both fun). The area around the hotel (Uvita, Dominical, and the mountains around San Isidro) are beautiful.
Noteworthy: This is a smaller, secluded place so make sure you read the info about the drive to the parking lot (you need 4WD). Also, there is a long staircase from the parking lot up to the reception area (not an issue for us, but worth noting). It isn't necessarily the "right hotel for everyone" - it's definitely geared towards eco-tourism, so if you don't enjoy outdoor activities and being in a jungle type environment...
We really had a nice time and I would recommend this place to friends (couples).
**Stop at a grocery store before you get there (to Uvita). There are only 2 stores in Uvita and the BM (nicest one) is a bit pricey. You can drive on this really cool mountain road to San Isidro and there are larger stores there with lower prices (especially for toiletries, sunscreen, etc.).
