The Gaia is a unique property situated into a hillside and surrounded by tons of trees and greenery. Combine this serene environment with a very friendly hotel staff and you are set up for some serious relaxation. We were assigned a concierge, who will do as much or as little for you as you need. Our concierge made sure we had everything we needed, including reservations for excursions, without being overbearing or intrusive. We had a suite, which was spacious, clean, and well appointed. The free wi-fi and hotel shuttle to the beach were very welcome amenities, as well. Every member of the staff, including a few of the owners, made us feel so welcome throughout our entire stay. We tend to be low maintenance travelers, but I have no doubt the staff here would have accommodated just about any request we threw their way. Breakfast was included, and we were so happy it was not buffet! It's a lovely a la carte menu, and everything we tried was delicious. I'm going to have to learn to replicate the Costa Rican Breakfast at home!
We saw several other hotels in the area near Manuel Antonio, and Gaia was by far the nicest one we saw. If we find ourselves in this part of Costa Rica again, we would not hesitate to stay at the Gaia again.
