Wonderful hotel. Service is excellent. Food is good from the a la carte menu, but when they have groups in and there are too many people, it suffers. Buffet dinners did not give enough variety (cooked food) and unforgiveably, chips and other food were COLD! The grounds are lovely with lots of exotic birds to see. There is a river...

This is an interesting place to stay. The accommodation is good, the rooms are reasonably well appointed. I think the shower room is due an upgrade as starting to look a bit tired, but overall a comfortable stay. The grounds are wide ranging and full of wildlife, something around nearly every corner. The staff are friendly and helpful, I used...

We got a discounted rate online and thought this place was a great value. Room was spacious, shower was large and had plenty of water even though we were visiting during the dry season. The grounds are very pretty, especially the side towards the river and we saw lots of hummingbirds, iguanas and other birds. Pool was fantastic, breakfast was...

This was our third hotel. They had all been different and good in their own way. This resort was more modern and very comfortable. Like most hotels, it is spread over a large area. The accommodation is two storey, but you access one level from the back and one level from the front, therefore not having stairs to climb for...

Stayed a week here. Amazing grounds, superb rooms and leisure facilities. Massive iguanas wandering around and the variety of gorgeous birds is fantastic. They are fed next to the dining area at breakfast time. Lovely pool, jacuzzi and two smaller children's pools. There is a sauna though not sure why you would need one in this humidity! It is a...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The grounds are stunning, rooms beautiful, swimming pool relaxing, & food delicious. Watching the gorgeous birds while eating breakfast is such fun in the open air restaurant! And the iguanas will stop by for a snack too. The Butterfly Garden is filled with colorful butterflies flying around the blooming plants. Horseback riding is a...

The grounds of the hotel is very nice and peaceful. Plenty of 2'-4' tame Iguanas walking around. Rooms are in several separate small buildings of approximately 10 rooms per building. Very motelish looking. Rooms could use some upgrading. Furniture looks like old used furniture you would buy at a garage sale. Air conditioner had only high speed or off. This...

Looks a bit lonely first when you come to reception but you realize it's not when you go to the pool and restaurant area. Its a very large place. Rooms are clean, comfortable beds and nice view to a lake from each balcony. Iguanas are all over the place and VERY big. They were a great attraction for my four...

The breakfast was fantastic! We really appreciated the air conditioning, and the price of this stay. We felt that it was a great value, and we wished that we had planned for more than one night in this location since it was a good location to enjoy the many activities surrounding it. We also appreciated that this location was not...

Stayed 2 nights as part of Tauck tour around Costa Rica. Rooms were very old fashioned, dull and bathrooms basic and unappealing. Accepting it's a humid environment the pillows and bedsheets smelled damp. The restaurant, food and service staff was ok without being spectacular. The general atmosphere felt rundown and in need of major investment.
