The hotel Bougainvillae was booked for us by our travel agency, Unique Adventures. we didn't have any idea it was so nice. About four acres of well tended botanical gardens make up the grounds. And, the meals that we had in the restaurant were some of the best I have had in any restaurant in the last two or more...

We were taken here by our excellent guide, Danny Ugalde Birding Guide V. It is a peaceful and tranquil place - full of so many beautiful native plants and trees. I could wander in that garden for hours. The room was clean, and very comfortable. Danny, our guide, is very knowledgeable about the plants, animals and ecology of his country....

What a beautiful hotel. Our room was perfect and all hotel staff members were friendly and eager to accommodate. We stayed there for a week and several times I had a special request such as for an extra pillow or another towel. Each time my requested item arrived within minutes. We were amazed at the laundry service also. Folded items...

The garden at this hotel alone makes the stay worthwhile. They are extensive and extravagantly beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are well appointed and ours looked out on the gardens. The food is good if not great. Our daughter got steak one evening that was small and rather over cooked. The breakfasts are grand and we had a delicious,...

We stayed here for 2 nights in a 3rd floor garden facing room. Although the room could have been in any hotel anywhere in the world, we still loved the room, the very comfortable beds, the well equipped bathroom and the balcony with the most amazing view over the gardens. Unlike on the coast, the temperature at night is perfect...

This hotel was about 30 minutes drive from the airport and made a very comfortable overnight stay on te day we arrived. Our room was fine , the gardens well worth walking around. The hotel is not near any local shops or restaurants so we ate in the hotel restaurant and found the food to be pretty good

We visited this hotel as our first stop of a three week birding tour, visiting four different areas and four different lodges, all in the jungles of Costa Rica. We found it using birders reviews, and are glad we did. Our flight landed at 1430, and it was supposed to be a 30 minute ride. However, CR is not the...
