Getting there just plain sucks....no other way to put it....the road that leads to the place is reminiscent of an offroad dirt bike track...but once there, it truly is wonderful...simple but yet luxurious....just the right touches everywhere....the villas are just so thoughtfully conceived...from the balcony to relax on to the room layout to the jacuzzi tub to the outdoor shower that is wonderful for those that are a little adventurous...and the real bonus is the food and food service....because u really dont feel like leaving given the terrible journey to get out and the wonderful surroundings within....and the food is just really wonderful, priced quite reasonably and the wait staff are a lot of fun....we were scared that given the fact we were kinda trapped that the food would be grossly overpriced and not very good...well the opposite was true...had a world class ceviche dish that i will forever remember....and we must have had what seemed like 10 or 12 chocolate soufflees while there....would strongly recommend anyone going to take the back road from guatuso versus the roads around katira to get there...its a far better back road and leaves u only the last 4 kilometers of hell as u arrive instead of the 15 or so on the other routes...
