After the grueling drive up to Monteverde and three hours hiking in the reserve, we were ready for a siesta and a meal. Like others, we were upgraded to a junior suite, which was much appreciated. The room was huge, with two beds and a large sitting area. We looked out over some wonderful grounds, with a fountain, sculptures, etc. After enjoying complimentary drinks at the pool bar and soaking in a hot tub, we had a nice dinner in the "fireplace room" part of the restaurant. Service was gracious and attentive, and the property couldn't have been nicer for the price. You will want to slow down a bit when you're here.
