If you are headed to Quepos this hotel is a MUST!
My husband and I just returned from an amazing stay at Gaia. Let it be known that we have VERY high standards when it comes to hotels, and Gaia met and surpassed each and every one of our criteria. It simply oozes cool…
From the car service that picks you up at the airport (and will take you wherever you need to go during the day) the personal tour you receive upon arrival, and the fantastic poolside service – this hotel has thought of everything to ensure maximum luxury and comfort for its guests. I am still trying to work out how I can replicate the hotel beds in my home…it felt like sleeping on a cloud.
The service from maintenance crew on up is OUTSTANDING! “No” is simply not in their vocabulary. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful - be careful what you wish for because even at the slightest mention it will be yours. These people bend over backwards to ensure that their guests have everything their heart desires and more.
The grounds are breathtaking – it is on a hill so you have gorgeous views of the jungle and ocean. From the Jacuzzi you can watch a fabulous sunset over the ocean…very romantic. Since the hotel sits on a reserve you can enjoy a guided nature tour of the grounds, or do as we did and simply sit by the pool to enjoy an afternoon show put on by the titi monkeys while you sip your afternoon cocktails.
The food is fantastic! I am missing my morning breakfasts! Gaia also has delicious afternoon tapas for a light snack and a melt in your mouth steak should you decide to remain on the grounds for dinner. We had a fabulous New Year’s Eve celebration at the hotel equipped with 4 course meal, band with 4 saxophone players, dancing, dinner and fireworks.
Quepos is a little touristy so after doing the tours, etc the first few days of our trip we did not leave the hotel grounds for 2 days. It is a great way to see Manuel Antonio and still come home relaxed and refreshed.
