This was our fifth stay at Cuna over the past number of years. We come to this part of Costa Rica, as we are currently developing our retirement property. One could ask why not try other hotels in the area, and this would be an excellent question. However, when you find a place that's got a great location for what we need, fantastic atmosphere, and complimented with an incredibly friendly staff who keep the property immaculate, why would anyone want to change that. To quote; "If it's not broken, don't break it." We are returning to Cuna again towards the end of April and can't wait.

Love the hotel, nestled in the jungle overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. Gorgeous landscape and scenic views. The food was amazingly delicious. The staff was friendly. We are going back in March 2020.

Easiest to list the issues we faced during our two night stay; From the moment we arrived the reception staff were cool and unhelpful. Awful smell of mildew in the room. No ocean view as advertised. Apparently the trees have grown!! Dilapidated uncomfortable sofa so nowhere to sit in the room other than on the bed. Bedding that just didn't fit the mattress, every morning we woke up wrapped in our sheet and mattress cover because they just didn't fit the mattress. No wi fi in the room, although it is advertised that it is. A safe that didn't work. When we investigated we found it had been repaired with sellotape! Laughably this hotel boasts a gourmet restaurant, the food is acceptable but when my partner ordered Tarte Tatin for his dessert what was delivered was a cold traditional English apple pie. The breakfast was the poorest of all the hotels we stayed in. We complained to our agent who made contact with the hotel and was apparently told that the hotel would make it up to us by giving us a free meal. When we checked out no such attempt at an apology was forthcoming either in the form of a reduction in our bill or a visit from management to deal with our issues. To add insult to injury we had to ask reception for some help to take our luggage down four flights of external steps. The reception staff seemed to have no enthusiasm for their work and not a jot of initiative. The ONLY saving grace in this hotel were the two male waiters in the restaurant. Both delightful. They should give the reception staff training in customer service.

Dear Carol T, We appreciate your comments about your experience and regret that it was not as expected. It is a pity that during your stay you didnt tell us all the things that you comment in this review. We had every intention of helping you despite knowing that you were not happy, we have offered courtesies that you have not accepted, and at all times we tried to help with your luggage. But the other things you mention, you didnt say anything to us and we could have helped make your experience more positive. Thank you very much, Eduardo Calvo Cuna del Angel

We loved the two nights we stayed here. I loved the restaurant- cool ceiling. There was a delicious buffet breakfast with plenty of food. We got a welcome drink. Fun angel decor. Friendly staff. Close to beaches and places to visit. Got to see a troop of capauchin monkeys come through

The Hotel is very clean, great view to the sea from the restaurant. They also organised trips on request, all worked fine. Just ask if they also provide gluten free products on the trip, as this is s.o. else organising it. The gluten free food is very good.
