We stayed here for 3 days. The staff were lovely and helpful with booking tours and chatting about where to visit in Costa Rica, the breakfast was huge and delicious. The suite was exquisite! We were expecting a nice hotel room but we walked into an enormous suite (suite 7). We thought that perhaps we were given a nicer room than we paid for but in fact they all looked similar. The windows faced the rain forest and monkeys came to play on the roof of the building next door. There were about 30 squirrel monkeys bounding on our roof and the neighboring roof for over an hour. We got more footage and photos than on any of the tours combined. Also, it looks like the hotel or locals have put up 'monkey ropes' above the hotel signs and leading over the road. We saw the monkeys using these to cross the roads during busy traffic. It was fantastic but so easy to miss if I hadn't seen them playing on our roof. The only negative is that the hotel is based along a main road and cannot build back into the rainforest (for obvious reasons), this means than you have to walk from your suite along the main road to get to breakfast or the pool. It's ok but I'd prefer an internal corridor. And if you want they'll bring you breakfast in your room. There is no hotel bar. But we had a wonderful stay and I would definitely stay again for the price.
