The views down to the lake, with the pool in the front are amazing. The rooms and the lounge area in general are good. A bit negative is, that they were not 100% clean. We stayed in 2 rooms (the first one was probably the one they need to use when they are fully booked - but all the others are very good and we could change after the first night without problems) and noticed in both some spider webs, old fly screens and bed sheets with some holes. For such a great "hardware" it's a pity that they spoil the Wow-effect with these details.
You need a 4-wheel-drive to get there. And you are also bound to the car if you look for places to eat. Having in mind that some attractions open up early the breakfast could start a bit earlier.
Overall still good, but price-value was better in some other places during our holiday in Costa Rica.
Advise for the day excursion: we loved the Observatory Lodge with the hikes, the restaurant and the birds you could watch from the terrace.
