Everyone is very nice. We had a good breakfast every morning. Having an air conditioner is important. We were very close by our friends that live there. Very easy drive to the beach and restaurants. Convenient

Good hotel overall. Interesting location and a friendly staff. Breakfast was traditional tico fare but was tasty. The pool was fun for us as well. It is an interesting drive from dominical to get to the hotel, and some of the rooms require more climbing, but it was worth it. A fun experience.

This hotel is the best place to stay if you want to visit one of the best waterfalls in Costa Rica (Nauyaca). The people are amazing, the place is very quiet and relaxing. Do not regret visiting this place. 100% recommended.

We drove a long ways from the Atlantic coast and arrived here at about 6pm to check in. We wanted to go to Nauyaca Waterfalls in the morning so this was a great location.

Pleasantly surprised by our stay at Natuga! We were looking for a place to stay near the Nauyaca Waterfalls and arrived to Natuga without a reservation after sunset. Owner Jacob (sp?) greeted us with a warm welcome, immediately serving us each a thirst quenching passion fruit juice drink! Great place to stay if you are interested in seeing the Waterfalls...

Wonderful resort! I highly recommend Natuga. The grounds are beautiful. The pool is beautiful. And the open air bar/lounge/restaurant is beautiful. The staff was awesome and very accommodating. Had a pina colada with the owner and she is a wonderful person! The breakfast each morning was great: omelettes, bacon, traditional beans and rice, toast and jam, all made to order....

“Make sure you have a frig in your room. They are all away from the main road. You may need a 4 wheel drive to get to some of the rooms, steeeep driveways. The rooms are older but very clean. The dining facilities are very nice, the language problem was a little difficult. The food was very nice and they all say you can drink their water, bring bottled or drink bottled beverages or at least enough alcohol to kill bugs. The location could have better signs to locate it. I had to ask a local cop where it was finally.”
