Our family spent 9 wonderful days here and I don't even know where to start. From the moment Julio picked us up at the airport, we felt at home. We were blown away by the beautifully landscaped grounds of the hotel. There's even a waterfall on the river that runs through it! The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. The fact that Julio and his family all speak fluent English was definitely a plus.
This location is 3 miles southwest of Grecia ($4 taxi ride to town - $6 for the red taxis). I even walked into town one day (about an hour's walk) and it was a great place to relax in the pool or just sit outside our rooms and enjoy the cool air of the morning or evening, in a quiet setting. The owners are very knowledgeable about the area and answered our every question about the area (we were on a "due diligence" trip to check out Grecia as a possible retirement location).
Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway in the Central Valley. It is centrally located to many of sites of the area: Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Sarchi and Zacero and just 30 mins from the airport! We had a driver take us to a beach near Jaco for the day and it only took about 1 hour and 15 mins to get there, via the new highway to the coast.
The hotel has a coded security gate, which was nice. Free wi-fi that worked well! All in all, five stars!
