If you are considering Totoco Eco-Lodge and haven't yet decided, pull the trigger and do it. I traveled there with my husband and 18 month old daughter, and we had a really great time. Like the other reviews say, the views are outrageous, the accommodations are clean & comfortable and classy, and the service is top-notch. The other thing that really stood out to us was the AWESOME food. We had the "meat-lovers" menu half-board, and wound up ordering lunches there too. Each meal was thoughtfully prepared and the ingredients all tasted fresh and delicious!! We took a great hike up the back of the property to an organic coffee plantation and saw petroglyphs on the way there + monkeys & butterflies - it was an awesome hike that our 18 month old loved too. The only thing I'd warn you of is the road up to the property which they call "an adventurous dirt road" - we were not prepared for how bumpy it was, and arrived completely rattled wondering if we'd even venture off the property or just stay up there so we didn't have to battle the road again - but it actually wasn't too bad, we just didn't have our expectations set up front for how rocky & bumpy it is. If you know going into it, it shouldn't be the same shock as it was to us.
