I stayed here recently with my daughter so we could hike and see birds and animals. We had hiked and birded here last year. The jungle is all around and within walking distance we have seen Families of Howler Monkeys, toucans, aqouti, Quetzals, etc. The hotel is in surrounded by gardens. The owners have to update several things, but say they are working on it. Ask for a newly upgraded room. This hotel is in the jungle and it is simple, but beautiful. It is near 3 wonderful resturants (including the famous Stella's Bakery, a wonderful Pizza and Italian Resturant, and a wonderful European Resturant and Bathouse) a coffeehouse with music at night that you just have to experience, a craft store and a small American private school with very friendly owners. It is within walking distance of the cheese factory, Quaker Meeting House, and the Children's Eternal Rainforest. I recommend with reservations.
