while the bungalows are spacious and outstandingly decorated, food (dinner!) + sevice leave much to desire. the (beef) steaks are much better and less costly down at la fortuna. the gardens are amazing and one can spot a lot of local animals (i.e. birds + leguans) and the pool with its cosy landscaping is fairly attracting. 3 things, however are spoiling the pool area pretty much: 1) the hot water (it's heated up to 35*c, while the air temp was just 28*c) inside and from the water falls doesn't provide any refreshment, 2) no dedicated rest rooms + showers at the pool side and 3) the keeper at the pool bar doesn't know how to prepare a proper caipi (((-: (+ ist still charging usd 12,5 for 1 cocktail). - summary: we wouldn't recommend this place to europeans, but it might be o.k. for usa citizens, who aren't as fastidious (w.r.t. food, refreshing water and services) as we are.
