Lush, cloudforesty grounds positively infested with hummingbirds. Almost every ornamental planting in their gorgeously landscaped grounds caters to these little buggers, and in February they were everywhere. Many other birds (and, of course the Quetzal, that the morning birdwatch guide was skilled in locating.) Wonderful, luxe-feeling rooms with hardwood floors and very nice high-quality beds/baths, thoughtful extras like finding hot-water bottles had been slipped between the bedsheets when we returned from dinner, and rocking chairs on the porches. Lovely restaurant, buffet-style meals well worth the money. You can watch them pull the trout from the ponds before lunch! Our 6 and 8-yo kids adored this place, running all over the winding up-and-down paths like a roller coaster, poking in the stream, climbing the garden boulder, watching the various-sized trout in the ponds and the hummingbirds in the flowers. I honestly felt like if we'd paid double it would have been worth it! The price here is quite reasonable. Likewise with the meals (breakfast is included, but you pay for the others, quite worth it). A bit hard to get to and isolated, but worth the effort. Wish we had stayed longer -- the kids didn't get to do the zip lines! Next time.
