We spent March 19, 20, & 21st at this beautiful hidden hotel. Talk about service, Amazing to say the least! Since this is on a hillside they have golf carts that would pick us up within 30 to 60 seconds. The drivers were all a delight and very informative. Ersell was one of the drivers but he was also a guide to the forest and all of the animals in the area. He even held a small informative meeting one evening before dinner with pictures of the monkeys in Costa Rica. I learned how to make corn tortillas using the local sour cream, Delicious! Our room was the Ocean Breeze room on the 3rd floor of bldg. 2. A huge room with a view of the ocean. We had 2 bathrooms, one with a huge shower, a super comfortable king size bed, a living room with a small refrigerator which we was stocked with snacks that we could eat for free. We also had a jacuzzi on our huge deck with a couch and 2 chairs. Service was above good and the people are so helpful. The semi private beach was perfect with lounge chairs, large comfortable beds to lay on and of course the prized Costa Rican Hammocks. Talk about Paradise! OH YAH!
It rained the night before we left which made it a little humid, but if you went down to the ocean there was a breeze and it was fine. The air conditioning in the rooms are great. I could go on but I think it would take more space than I have here. Note: We saw a group of monkeys one morning during breakfast come through our area and stop to drink from the pool. We also saw a sloth, and an iguana got up on our breakfast table by the pool and took my husbands biscuit!)
