Not a luxury hotel by any stretch but it won our affection somewhat to our surprise. The rooms are spartan with slightly dodgy plumbing, and mealtimes a regime rather than a gourmet experience. However the setting is lovely, feels remote and genuine, and the wildlife is astonishing ( even for Costa Rica); we saw monkeys and coati as well as wonderful bird life and the ubiquitous iguanas and lizards. The trip to the nearby spa was well worthwhile. And best of all the hilltop bar has what must be one of the best views of any bar anywhere. If you don't expect great luxury it's well worth the incredibly rough road approach for a visit.
