Perched right on top of a hill on a busy road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio, Gaia has a very unique tranquil feeling as soon as you arrive. Whilst Gaia is certainly very beautiful, the one thing that sets it apart is the level of service. We were assigned a personal concierge who was incredibly helpful and really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. In fact, all of the staff were great.
You also get a free shuttle service which is brilliant if you want to go to the beach or into Quepos. The beach is well worth checking out.
The swimming pool is lovely, rather small decking areas but it was never a problem getting a sun bed. Great views of the Pacific Ocean from the infinity pool.
The restaurant is very nice, really good food albeit rather pricey compared to the rest of MA, but we ate there 5 out of 6 nights as once you price in a taxi to and from hotel it works out about the same. Also, leaving Gaia, is a bit silly, when it is so beautiful!
We stayed in a Jungle Suite, which was large and well appointed although with no balcony or outside space. That didnt really matter though as the pool was so quiet!
Would certainly go back, highly recommended!
