We really enjoyed the breakfast room and common deck, especially watching the colorful birds feasting at the fruit feeder. Jossie at the front desk was extremely helpful and kind, setting us up with a wonderful naturalist tour of the cloud forest, recommending the nearby butterfly garden--an interesting place within walking distance--helping us change our coffee tour to the afternoon so that we could visit the cloud forest in the morning, when animals are more active. She also called our attention to visiting wildlife, including a group of coatimundis. Our room--upstairs in the main lodge--was spacious and had a very nice view but was lacking in amenities. There were no towel racks or comfortable chairs. The sitting area outside the upstairs rooms was very uninviting, as well, and the stairway leading upstairs had paint splatters. I felt as if I was in someone's in-progress renovation. But we were hardly in the room--too busy with activities and spending time on the lovely deck downstairs. So overall, a very pleasant, peaceful & quiet stay.
