We went for a Romantic get away. The hotel staff was amazing, the restaurant food and the restaurant view is breathtaking. They have an infinity pool as well. They have a Macao reserve and the tour guide was so knowledgeable and so much fun.

Hotel's Favorite
This is one of the best places in Costa Rica. Excellent service, personalized attention and a staff that is always available to help at any time. The restaurant has world class food, with dishes modified to the Costa Rican culture, it is a true culinary experience. The rooms are very spacious and all are very close to the pool, Spa and Restaurant. The Spa service is incredible (recommended, it is a must), additionally you have to do the Lapas Tour. This is a recommended place.

We had an amazing time at hotel Gaia. The personnel was on top of our needs. The food was really good, they have vegetarian and vegan options in the menu. They have an excellent tour to their Lapa sanctuary. The views from the restaurant are really good. Moreover the room was really comfortable and greatly equipped. Manuel Antonio is area offer nice restaurants and is close enough to the National Park. The protocol regarding Covid-19 were always followed and you feel safe. Important to mention that my wife and I had a really nice massage in the spa. Looking forward to come back.

Went with my wife looking for some relaxation time and celebrate our wedding anniversary. This place had a great COVID 19 protocol and we really enjoyed our stay. Attention, service and view were some of the things that I really want to highlight. Experience started way before arriving with our personal virtual concierge Krishne, he was always anticipating our needs and reachable through whatsapp for any request or questions. Food and service was always amazing at "La Luna" restaurant. Yendry made each one of our dinners a very pleasant experience and chefs did a great job wowing us with their creations. There were very little guests so we had pretty much all for ourselves, pool view is amazing surrounded by this refreshing view of a mix of mountain forest and the sea. Really recommend this place, hope you can go too and enjoy.
