My daughter and I visited Father's Day weekend. The experience was more than amazing! I came for the meals centering around the trout...what I received, was beyond the beyond! The food was magnificent, the presentation was exquisite and the service was wonderful. The property is spectacular and the ambiance was incredible!!!!!
Chef Jose is the ultimate host and has the most wonderful personality. He makes you feel as if you are the only person in the world and you are number one!
Go now...don't waste a minute....this, is sublime paradise!

Room Tip: All cottages are nice...views are spectacular

Unbelievable! This hotel and restaurant are not to be missed
Fabulous tropical rainforest setting with beautiful villas that even include an outdoor shower
The chef/ owner is a gem
He and his team provide 5 star customer service
He is also an incredible chef
We left all selections for food to him and had one of the best meals we have ever had
His ingredients are fresh and local
We came to relax and made a friend for life
We were told this is our second home…it will be!

We have traveled widely and have been to many exceptional restaurants. This rate as one of the best. We traveled there on the recommendation of the owner of Finca Christina for lunch with another couple. It was an interesting trip up the rough road but once we got there we were surprised and excited. Chef Jose was and extra ordinary host. The meals 2 fresh trout, 1 shrimp and one chicken universally enjoyed. Don't let the trip there deter you it is worth every twist and turn of the road. Ban Appetit

the hotel is really beautiful, surrounded by rain forest and really ecologic and respectful with the environment. Very comfortable beds, I would say the best from the whole trip.
the location is unique, the valley is secluded, out of the mass touristic places, where you can experience the real Costa Rican life. the valley Orosi is worthy the visit, simply fantastic, relaxing, with lots of activities
but ... the best of Quelitales is ... José and his employees. They are so friendly, that you will feel like at home. José cooks like the angels, don't miss to eat at the restaurant.
we spend 2 nights there and then move to our next destination (Rara Avis, where we had booked 2 nights). The experience at Rara Avis was so bad and unprofessional that we decided to leave after 1 night and drive back 3 hours to Quelitales, what was an excellent decision and we had a fantastic dinner, night and breakfast. My husband had birthday and José and his people sang for him. Really nice stay !!! Pura Vida !!!

Room Tip: we had two different room types, both were excellent
