Wow! What a little gem! We stayed here our first night in Costa Rica. Our flight was really late at night so we didn't get to experience the beauty until the next morning.
We were greeted by Berni and his 3 german shepherds. We stayed in the "volcano room" which was very clean but did have a very stange smell to it (maybe moldy?). The biggest complaint that we had was the lack of hot water when we showered in the morning. There wasn't any and being that it gets a little chilly here in the mornings, we could have really used it! We didn't complain though, our experience was still great!
Berni was a wealth of information and a delight to chat with about this amazing country. The breakfast was delicious! The property is so beautiful, words don't describe it at all!!
I would stay here again to kick off or end our next trip to CR!
