Marcos and Adrian are the best waiters. Eliza did excellent job cleaning our room. Johannes, Candy and the rest of the front...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 April 2017 via mobile

Words cannot express how wonderful our stay at Gaia was. From the beautiful property to the absolutely top notch customer service, I have never been so sad to leave a vacation. We had more close encounters with wildlife at the hotel than at Manual Antonio Park, often observing a mother sloth and her baby within 10 feet as we sat...

Our stay at Gaia was wonderful. The staff was great, the property is unique and beautiful, our room was very nice and spacious and the the restaurant is 5 Star. The resort is very clean and our room was kind of minimal in decor which I loved. Lots of stone and natural elements. We took the afternoon nature hike right...

The staff at Gaia were wonderful and incredibly accommodating. When we mentioned it was our honeymoon, the hotel sent us a bottle of wine, and we very much enjoyed the complimentary mini-spa treatments. The food and cocktails at the on-site restaurant were delicious. It's a quick shuttle ride to the beach, and the nature walk around the grounds was very...
