We were here with a group and had a wonderful buffet lunch. Organic food and fish. The lemonade was delightful. After lunch we had a fun, hands on, sugar cane demo and then walked around the property. Made for a lovely afternoon.

Enjoy this Costa Rican experience! Not your typical hotel experience but one that is fun and educational. Clean, good food but your cabana has bunk beds and no tv.

This was our best buffet lunch in Costa Rica. Came here as part of our tour group activities. Added bonus was the tour in the beautiful gardens and the sugar cane processing demo.

We showed up for lunch and really enjoyed the setting. It was a bit hard to find and we almost gave up, but I'm glad we didn't! It looks like most of the tour groups use this as part of their itinerary, but we travelled...More
