“First Class Experience In The Clouds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

We had a wonderful experience that began right from the start when we drove up the mountainous terrain to get to Las Nubes - it was such an exciting adventure to reach the top and once we arrived, we were welcomed with open arms from Filip, the friendly owner, who made us feel right at home and always made sure that we were well looked after.

We were spoilt by Filip's cooking, who caters to any dietary requirements and special requests - from the gourmet breakfasts to the absolutely scrumptious roast chicken and ossobucco for dinner. Delicious!

The resort strategically accommodates a maximum of 16 guests, which we were grateful for as we were able to have a relaxing and peaceful getaway to allow us to reconnect with ourselves, which was what we were looking forward to after the hustle and bustle of being in San Jose (and coming from London!). Pure bliss!

Nothing beats waking up and chilling with a good book before heading for a quick dip in the infinity pool, where we were able to soak in the fantastic view and do some birdwatching! Having a stroll around the property, we were able to appreciate how sustainable Las Nubes is, which is truly amazing!

Good food, awesome views, great atmosphere and wonderful host - what more could we ask for on a relaxing holiday? Words cannot describe the magnificence of the place, you have to see it to believe that it is a piece of heaven on earth.

Pura Vida (:

Two weeks ago, we had a holiday in costa rica. After we had rent a car in San Jose, we went up to our first hotel, Las Nubes in Matapalo. Las Nubes is an full selfsupporting energy resort. The owner Filip, from Belgium, has built this resort two years ago. The "cabanas" are very private and very luxiourious.
Especially the way to LAs Nubes is an adventure on its own. But once upon the top of the mountain, the setting is spectacular. One side you have a magnificent view over the pacific ocean, on the other side you see the moutains.
The owner serves a fantastic breakfast, and on your request he also serves dinner.
Las Nubes, the best place i visited, the last couple of years. Highly recommended to everyone who seeks for rest, and peace, and a wonderful setting.

Room Tip: all the rooms are the same, but if possible choose the one with the seaview.

Once arrived at Las Nubes, you think you are dreaming... you immediately feel part of all that beautiful nature around you, you look around, you are in perfect harmony. It is a very special place that gives you a feeling of peacefulness, of self-confidence, of beauty... words can not really describe this. That is the reason why it is worth seeing this by yourself, with your own eyes. And also share it with others, as much as possible.

A unique place with a unique kind of energy. Staying there means travelling between clouds, sun and an impressive nature to end up into your own heart. Completely filled with joy I recommend this from the bottom of my heart!

Just touched home base again and I directly booked my holiday for 2013. I spend 2 weeks at Las Nubes: the first week with clients, the second week with family. Living in Las Nubes moved me to tears. Every word you read on the website is true...and beyond. AMAZING and devine.
Don't hesitate. If it feels good by watching the pictures, book it!

A stunning place on earth with unbelievable views, phantastic walk to the waterfalls, charming owner and chef (a real culinary treat), horse riding on the beach, refreshing personal coaching sessions. This hotel is beyond your imagination and ideal to get re-energised!
