It took us 45 minutes to drive the last 9 km to the hotel, and the extremely rough road rattled every body part, we used the 4 WD often. Several times I wasn't sure we would make it up some of the hills. The drive from T is not for the weak of heart. The guard at the gate greeted us by name and when we walked into the reception area we were greeted with cold towels and a fruit drink. The checking process was painless. I'm not sure what I expected, but my expectations were exceeded. This is really an amazing and beautiful hotel. The staff is fantastic. Although there sometimes was a language barrier The common areas are all open and inviting. From our room we could hear the Rio Celeste, we had a huge private balcony that faced the jungle. Our room also had a huge outdoor shower complete with gorgeous flowering plants and shrubs. Our meals were very tasty. The hotel had a trail where you could walk down to see the Rio Celeste. The 700m walk is fairly easy and well marked. The gardens around the hotels are lovely and well kept while maintaining a jungle/rain forest. My husband and I got massages in the SPA. I can't say enough good things about this hotel and the staff. Free WiFi was available.
