When traveling in a country with many sub-par hotels, it was like reaching heaven when we found Cuna del Angel. The hotel is immaculate, the beds very comfortable and the grounds, gorgeous. There are so many extra touched everywhere you look, from the custom light fixtures to the wall murals, the one of a kind ceiling fans to the beautiful light switches. The attention to detail really sets this hotel apart from the others. There is a reason they call it a "boutique hotel" - it is small (only 16 deluxe rooms, a handful of "jungle" rooms), quaint, quiet and well kept. It has fabulous infinity pool with a great view to relax in after a day of exploring the region. Each of the bottom floor rooms have their own stepping stones through the grass to the pool! There are lounge chairs and a couple of tables with umbrellas around the pool. Bar service is available out there also. Their drink and wine menu is pretty varied...something for everyone. Try the "Tropical Ticos" drink!! The food is delicious and there is a good sized menu to chose from! We ate there 4 night - we tried beef dishes, fish, pasta, chicken - all fabulous! The meals and desserts are works of art. The staff was so easy to communicate with and were most helpful with recommendations for tours, restaurants, surf beaches, etc.The only thing that was somewhat of a problem, was the truck noise from the highway at night. But we were usually so tired at night (and we travel with ear plugs) that we were able to sleep through it. The rooms are large and include a minifridge and a safe, bathrooms are good sized, well lit, and the A/C worked great. The rooms had beautiful furniture - wall unit/armoire, desk with chair, bedside tables, headboard, couch and coffee table. All very clean. We had terrific free wi-fi in our rooms and on our patio. No small accomplishment after traveling all over the country and staying in places that claimed to have wi-fi, but didn't have connection 9 times out of 10. We stayed at the hotel in mid Aug. and had no problems with bugs - really enjoyed the open-air dining and seating areas. Breakfast came included with the cost of the room, a great buffet that always included 3 kinds of fresh fruit, juices, great coffee, muffins or danish, and changed daily to various things like rice, sausage, eggs; french toast; waffles; etc... And again, the staff was there, everyday, morning until night, with a smile on their face, happy to help you. Great experience! Make sure you have the fresh fruit crepes, made at your table! Wow! We'd definitely go back there and recommend it to others.
