In order to get to this hotel, we were bused from San Jose to a depot on the edge of a river where we were met by long, narrow covered boats for the 90 min trip down-river to the property. There were other boats there collecting other guests for this and other resorts and the whole ambiance was exciting and adventurous. More than one of our group commented on the African Queen feel. The rooms are single or connected cabins that, considering that you are in a rain forest where everything is transported in by boat, were very attractive and comfortable. Sitting on the front porch in the stereotypical Costa Rican rockers was a real pleasure. The dining room was an attractive screened pavilion with good, but somewhat repetitive food. There is a nature trail on the property that was fun, but we saw toucans, sloths, spider,white-faced and howler monkeys right on the main grounds. The staff we met were all friendly and helpful, especially Victor, the manager and Kevin the bartender. Yes it rains and is humid, but what else would you expect in a rain forest?
