My husband and I just got back from our visit to Costa Rica. I couldn't get on the computer fast enough to write my review on the Gaia Hotel. The hotel staff was exceptional. Compared to all the hotels in the area, this is a step above the rest which is why it is listed among the world's best luxury boutique hotels. There is a ton of things to do in the area, the list of activities is endless. The hotel provides a free shuttle to the national park with hosts three beautiful beaches with an amazing sunset view you have to experience while you are there. What stood of for us regarding the hotel was the service. You enter the gates where I golf cart is waiting for you take you to the reception. A short ride up a curve path engulfed with beautiful exotic flowers and rain forests. When you are ready to go to the beach, there will be someone waiting for you by the entrance with towels to borrow, every time! If you choose to use the hotel pool, periodically the waiter by the pool will bring you fresh fruit or a nice cool face towel to refresh you from the heat. C'mon does it get any better then that? The rooms are clean, the tv has a ton of channels (english too). There is a DVD player to bring your own movies. They have wireless internet and a business center which includes 3 computers, printer etc. ALL free of charge. Finally, I want to include we took this trip for my husband's 30th birthday. Once I told the staff, they prepared a custom cake with my husband's favorite flavors and periodically throughout the day the staff would wish him happy birthday. My husband is shy but he felt so special, including a call and drink from the owner when we sat down to enjoy our breakfast. Did I mention the food is fabulous!?!?! We simply can not say enough. We were very fortunate that we had great experience and will definitely visit again in the future.
