After booking the only room they had available, we discovered room 9 is one of the most expensive as well. It's worth it. We woke up with the sun at 5:30 every day when howler monkeys appeared mere meters away from our balcony to eat the fruit in the trees. The superior rooms all have gorgeous balconies facing the rainforest, but a top floor suite is perfect for observing the many groups of monkeys that hang out just outside. Bring earplugs if you wish to sleep later!
The innkeepers are lovely and accommodating, and the food is wonderful! The breakfast buffet includes eggs made any style and classic gallo pinto, and a lovely array of fresh Costa Rican fruits. Innkeepers speak English, Spanish, and German. Rooms are pristine and the pool is lovely. I love how secluded the hotel feels, even if it's just a short drive from the town. Gorgeous vista - I'd love to come back some day!
