We stayed in the La Capilla suite for 2 nights, you have to go up narrow stairs, the room is quite basic but comfortable with a small balcony. There are open windows so you can get a breeze. Wifi was only available in the dining/reception area. There is a trail which goes around the property which is a nice walk,...

Good fresh food. Nice walks in the rain forest...

This is a lovely setting right in the rainforest. One day we watched howler monkeys swinging right overhead beside the restaurant. A very peaceful place (except for an early morning serenade by the howlers one day - but that's part of the experience you go for). The food was excellent, and very reasonably priced. Kudos to the cooks. Javier provided...

We spent 2 nights here as part of a tour organised by the excellent Costa Rica Expeditions. This is a charming little lodge in a lovely setting among lovely gardens and with a river flowing past the dining room. We had a large room above the gateway to a little courtyard. The room was comfortable with a large bathroom (no...

We stayed for only one night and had a great diner with great service! Very nice hotel with a very nice view. Rooms are big ans beautiful but a little noisy, especially during the night and in the morning when housekeeping started to work in the garden.

In the middle of the rain forest, which I liked, but not my favorite food and certainly not the wine. The rooms were ok, not great, but the seating on the veranda was very uncomfortable. The dining staff was friendly but I felt the food could have been much better.

This hotel reminded me of exactly how all hotels should be; small, personal and with beautiful surroundings. If you are looking for a small hidden treasure this is exactly it.

A small friendly family run place.Lovely accommodation set around a quite pleasant small freshwater lagoon. Good quality food and a nice open air dining area. Some interesting walking tracks in the grounds, we had howler monkeys for company. Close to Tirimbina forest reserve.

The hotel is a short drive away from the quite busy carretera 4. That noise you don't hear too much: just the trucks that come from Puerto Viejo and start slowing down for the intersection with the Carretera Braulio Carrillo can be heard clearly. Be careful that you do not drive past the entrance of the hotel. It is a...

This hotel is located a bit away from anything, thus you might want to get a car to get around. It's very beautiful location and the facilities are well maintained.
