“Remarkable service and attention to detail!”
Reviewed May 16, 2011

I hate writing reviews, but will extend my words of experience because I relied heavily on the reviews of others to plan my trip.
Face it, you go on vacation to get away from your busy daily and to relax. You want to leave all cares away and simply live in the moment and think of nothing but the fun you intend to have. Cuna Del Angel knows this and insists that you do by first slowing you down right from check in. After checking in, and before you go to your room, they ask you to have a seat while your room is prepared. This is not a time to get upset that you have to wait. You are overlooking the jungle with the ocean in the distant. Thats when they hand you a local fruit drink and you start to realize that you are unwinding from the flight...you are cooling off and taking a breath. This, is how you are treated the entire time.

The rooms are beautiful and extremely clean. They are furnished with proper furniture, not typical hotel cut-outs. There is attention to detail everywhere in this hotel.
The grounds are well maintained and the pool has a view to get lost in.

You cannot go wrong with this hotel.

We loved Cuna del Angel. The spa is so convenient (especially for last minute pedicures and massages) and the receptionists are very accommodating as far as setting up tours and activities. We scheduled most of our activities the night before after 6 p.m. and we were still able to make snorkeling, zip lining, fishing the next morning around 7 a.m. No need to stress out ahead of time about planning your trip if you stay here. They will make it happen. Alana in the spa is so sweet and she is a physical therapist as well so her massages are very good. The drinks in the restaurant can add up quickly $$. The food is very good and the atmosphere is perfect. Great music, dim lights, and a sweet waitstaff. They also have Air Condition which was very nice after a long day of being outside. You must set up a day of snorkeling...don't forget to wear a lot of sunscreen on the back of your legs! The snorkeling was by far our favorite day. We saw sea turtles and tons of colorful fish. The guides were great. One other thing about the hotel....I wanted to walk to the ocean from the hotel because it is sitting on a hill and you can see the ocean. We found a hiking trail to get to the ocean-the hotel doesn't tell you about it. Take the road by the pool up the hill past the parking lot and then it forks off to the right. Then you will see a trail into the jungle. It's only about a ten minute walk. It was beautiful. We spent our last sunset there. It is a little steep, but well worth it. We wanted to be on the ocean, but it was fine. We heard monkeys from our room and saw lots of birds. We had a great time at Cuna del Angel. It was a perfect ending to our honeymoon after spending the first week on the Carribean side of C.R. cheers.

The staff here made our stay exceptional. We were here for 4 nights and loved it. Angelica, Diana and Loana at the reception desk helped us plan excursions, they made reservations and gave suggestions about local activities, beaches, etc. The restaurant is wonderful with Danny, Mena (chef) and the wait staff...we were spoiled. Breakfast, lunch and dinner...all great. My husband had contacted the hotel befor we arrived to request a special birthday cake for me. I was so happy when Danny and the chef came out with my delicious red velvet cake! I have never been so suprised. In the spa, Illiana gave us the most relaxing and much needed massags after a long day of hiking. Everyone should experience her amazing hands. The rooms are nice and clean. The pool is beautiful. The scenery is spectacular. The location is great for people who like small, intimate, quite places. We had only one minor air conditioner problem, but it was resolved quickly.

We stumbled upon this place and wish we would have stayed here longer! It's very quaint, right in the forest and not far from the beach (a long walk..about 3Km), but you can see the ocean from the rooms. It's very clean and there is air conditioning. The food was outstanding in the restaurant and the service great. We will definitely stay here again!

An amazing experience not to be missed!!!! This is a jewel as a boutique hotel with artistic European details of stained glass and wrought iron in the bedrooms. Spacious, elegant, comfortable and clean rooms border a beautiful pool with a jungle view. This intimate, yet open atmosphere frees the spirit as you are nestled in the jungle. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace where one can view toucans and listen to monkeys. Gourmet dinners are a highlight with special occasion concerts. Manuel Obregon presented an incredible piano concert of original and classical music. The management and staff are very attentive and appreciative of each guest!!
The spa offers a wide variety of massage to enhance a relaxing tranquil visit.

Stayed 10 days in Cuna del angel in a jungel room, it was good but next time we will get a delux room with a view of the pasific. All the staff is really helpfull and smilling. The hotel restaurent serve good food especially the fish and it has a view of the pasific.
The only thing we missed was a path through the jungle to the ocean.
A speciall thanks to Melvin and Melvin Jr. on the Costa Brava (the hotels game boat) For a great day on the water.

After travelling all around the world in hotels of all kind of different ratings, this hotel has scored highest on the friendlyness and service. The staff is extremely kind and helpful. The restaurant is a delight. I would recommend anybody to have a stay here. If your budget is not so high take the juggle rooms or otherwise stay in the man wing rooms. Toucans flighing over when you are in the swimmingpool.
