Had the opportunity to visit Terry at Magellan again, and it never ceases to amaze me why people would stay anywhere else in Cahuita. The rooms are clean, everything works (I find it stunning how many Costa Rican hotels have terrible maintainance issues), and when something goes wrong, Terry fixes it as fast as you ask. Walking around the grounds is like walking in a botanist's garden; every example of the most beautiful Costa Rican flowers and shrubs are found here. It's just mesmerizing. I also love the layout of the restaurant/front desk. Open air concept, view of the grounds, and all for 3 star prices. Unreal.
One thing I really take exception to are the twits that have called Terry cold or disinterested in her clients and other idiotic things like that; it couldn't be further from the truth, at least in my experience. Personally, I like someone that gives me my space, and some peaceful tranquility in such a soothing environment; life isn't about McDonalds and having people chitter chatter around you like a hyper IHOP waitress. If someone's quiet, does that make them unfriendly? Terry, in my experience is a warm, intellegent person who has the grace and elan to overlook boors like the kind of people that would write such trash. If you don't like someone, imagine walking a mile in their shoes before you condemn them. I've found her nothing but charming and beautiful, just like her front desk assistant Ixela.
