My husband planned this entire trip for our Honeymoon, and I was blown away. The greeting as we came to the resort after a long tiring day and small plane ride was amazing. They had wonderful and helpful people who already acted like they knew us!
The room was stunning (#6) and was very private. We had incredible service at the restaurant every morning, afternoon and night. We tried a different plate for each meal and only a few we were not amazed by, but we are not very outgoing with our food choices as it is so it was nothing that upset us. The waiters and staff were always helping us with our Spanish and encouraging us to learn while we were there which was great!
The guided tours were incredible and very educational. We wanted to do EVERYTHING while on the honeymoon, and we truly loved every tour. We did the Ridgewalk, night walk, early morning bird tour and attempted the pigs and twigs but did not make it on time!
We went off on our own through some self guided trails and down to the beach and it was very safe and comfortable. We also did some things outside of the resort and the drivers who took us were also very familiar with what we needed to do, and very always on time.
Overall, I miss this wonderful slice of heaven and I would definitely go back right now. The one thing I would recommend is to finish your trip here because we were sad to go and had a couple more nights at San Jose before heading back home. Thank you Lapa Rios!
