We stayed two nights (July 19 & 20th, 2014) and enjoyed our stay. As others have said, the staff (esp. Rigoberto) were very, very professional and friendly. The on-site restaurant was absolutely first rate and all the meals we had there were fantastic. Don't go looking for anything better nearby - there isn't! Not even close. The pool was nice...

The hotel and restaurant are lovely, the staff is attentive and professional, but the GARBAGE from the hotel on the main road (34) is absolutely unacceptable. The disposal and care for garbage is not representative of a small distinctive hotel claiming to be eco minded .

What a treat this hotel was! My parents, college-aged daughter and I stayed for three nights in two deluxe rooms. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated.

A fine experience, but a whirlwind as we only scheduled one night at this fine hotel. The staff was super friendly, rooms were very clean, although the bed was not good for sleep. We ate at the Palapa restaurant on site, and it was truly fabulous. My wife and I had ordered the lobster risotto and the osso bucco, oh...

This is a stunning boutique hotel overlooking the ocean. The hotel features a gourmet 100% gluten-free (and aiming at completely organic) restaurant. The gluten-free restaurant and the toucan that greeted us on our balcony were extra-special treats. Excellent food. Excellent staff. We highly recommend! With special kudos to Rigo and Danny!! Thanks for the excellent service, guys!

“Roomy and nice. Have been to Costa Rica several times, my first time at Cuna del Angel and the experience was EXCELLENT!!, EXTRAORDINARY!! I will recommend Cuna as an exraordinary experience to any one. I will never stay in anyother place since my stay at the Cuna.
