While our family of 5 (stayed in 2 of their cabins) stayed in plush high end lodges throughout Costa Rica, this was our favorite. While we all enjoyed our rooms, the experience as a whole was outstanding. Yes, it is far off the beaten path (and main road) but that adds to the experience. We were away from the crowds and really felt like we were spending a true Costa Rica experience. While it took about 15 minutes to drive into town, much of which is on a rough road, we still enjoyed the trip and had no problems coming and going at night. The breakfast was excellent and the help and the owner were quite friendly and very helpful. The facilities were very tastefully decorated and up to date in great shape. Our kids did have trouble with the openness of the bathroom facility (separated from the bedroom by a stone wall), the rooms had a ton of room as well. The grounds were beautiful and the visit to the monkey sanctuary a real treat. We can easily see spending more time here on our next visit and using it as a home base.
