Nice place to stay and great access to beach. Great for families came with a kitchen and laundry facilities. Kayaks are available within walking distance. The vehicle with airport pick up was an extra added and much appreciated bonus had a great visit here.

First I'll start with the good. The staff are amazing. Everyone is very polite and friendly also helpful. Everyone always said hello. Next the views are incredible. The photos cannot do them justice. Every where you look it's amazing. Also the place is set in the rainforest so the landscaping is also amazing. Birds and butterflies, frogs big and small,... More

We stayed in the junior suite and it was amazing! There aren't enough good things I can say about this place. We visited in August, and we basically had the whole place to ourselves. The staff is amazing. They treated us like royalty. The food is amazing. I had the Costa Rican tamale. It was delicious. Their "Gallo pinto", basically... More

We LOVED this hotel. We had a junior suite, which I highly recommend for the private terrace and views. The restaurant is pricey but the food was fabulous. They have a beautiful private beach and top notch service. Highly recommended this hotel.

I like the hotel and its views. All the people that works there were really friendly. The hotel however doesn't have a beach near it. They will give you a ride in a 4x4 and take you to their private beach. The car goes very 30 minutes and starts working at 9:00 I didn't like the beach, it has too... More

Our stay was beyond amazing!!! Sunsets spectacular!!! Friendly staff and top notch service!!! Food pricey, it's removed from town and walking up hilly property may not be for all but wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Costa Rica! Loved every minute!!! Sad to leave.
