I just sadly returned from a remarkable trip to Costa Rica. I was met at the airport, had an air conditioned Van drive me to Playa Hermosa and the facility.
Our host Alejandro greeted me and showed me around. The rooms are adequate with plenty of room and a nice bathroom w/ shower. There is air-conditioning for those who want it, I opted mostly for the fresh air blowing through.
Alejandro is a delightful host, making sure all your needs are met. He personally joined our Yoga
sessions, eat his meals with us, and played with us. It felt more like a family Retreat, as our small
group moved from one activity to the next.
The meals were wonderful, we loved every dish that came out of the kitchen, with fresh fruit in the mornings, a beautiful vegetarian lunch, and dinner.
We all adored Buddha the family dog, so sweet and friendly, like his owner. I have to give it my highest rating for what it is. It is not a 5 star hotel, if that's what you want go elsewhere, it is a
bit layed back, typical of CR. you get the full experience, like a local.
