"Just for dinner"
But the pool looked good, the wifi was on and the meal was very good, a bit expensive but spicy swear bass was fresh cooked well and the crispy bread with cream cheese a highlight. Getting the bill to pay took forever though.
"Loved this hotel - created and run with passion!"
We stayed here for 6 nights toward the end of our two week trip to Costa Rica. Travelling with our 9 year old daughter we all shared a beautiful lodge which had a super king bed and two single sofas. The room was cooled using a ceiling fan and this was more than adequate for us. The bathroom and shower were lovely - spacious and refreshing. Not entirely enclosed from the outside, but the mosquito mesh kept us itch-free (in the room at least). Food is excellent - breakfasts of lots of fresh fruit, eggs, toast, marmalade and jam. We ate in the restaurant most evenings and the food was superb - beautifully prepared and seasoned before being presented. Staff are attentive and helpful - offering to show us things we could do and when there were snakes or frogs to look at. Maho - the lady who built and owns this place clearly had a vision 20 years ago and has employed a team who help with this vision. From the beautiful flooring in each lodge to her home made chutney, Maho's passion is in abundance. I hope to return ..... and, once again, experience a stay in this Paradise.
"Was my favourite place to stay out of the entire two weeks I spent in Costa Rica "
The A style cabins were beautiful, so cozy, clean and comfortable. Each cabin had a hammock on the front porch, made for the best naps I've ever had. The jungle surrounding the cabins made it such a wonderful experience. The sounds of the birds and monkeys were incredible â¤ï¸ the owner and staff were very sweet and accommodating, they even went out of their way to find me the last dirt bike in town to be rented. I envy Madame (the owners) life. I can't wait to go back. Highly recommend this place, you will not be disappointed.
Firstly I think anyone reading previous reviews (especially bad ones) should try not to be put off. However I will be honest about my findings.... After a long journey and arriving late all I wanted to do was sleep and not worry to much. To my surprise walking in to my lodge made me feel better. I stayed in blodge 12 which was very spacious, clean and my wifi was even still able to connect to call home. We had a beautiful porch with a lovely hammock. When I woke up the next day I noticed how clean everything was. The floors, the public toilets, the restaurant. There was even someone each day sweeping fallen leaves from the paths, I also saw someone painting the lanterns in the walkways to freshen it up a little and the gardens were being trimmed and well kept. Don't forget to visit the giant tree towards the back of the hotel it is truly breathtaking! Breakfast. Some pros and cons here. It was very nice and everything is made to order so when you decide to go over you are attended to by a waitress who has a flask of coffee waiting, will get you tea or water and then proceeds to bring you a plate of fresh fruit which is just delicious. You are then asked how you would like your eggs cooked and soon after these will arrive with a basket of hot toast, marmalade and jam. All was lovely but it is the same breakfast everyday. I would have liked a bit more variety so this is my only negative. However saying that I would rather fresh breakfast then a buffet that has been sitting out for a while which I found in most places I visited. The staff. Honestly I have no idea how people had bad experiences. Everyone I spoke with was wonderful. They are friendly, chatty I had the opportunity to speak to all of them on a number of occasions. One of the days I had even left by the pool an empty cigarette box with some money in I had gone to the shop with earlier in the day. I realised hours later and went and asked at reception whether anything was handed in. No luck :( I went out for dinner and came back a while after to find that one of the staff members excitedly approached us with the cigarette box and money! He explained he went through the cleaners bins, emptied bags of rubbish and found the box we thought was lost with our money in. I couldn't believe it! He really did go the extra mile and that was a very kind and honest gesture. All the waitresses were polite and friendly. Even the cleaners said good morning. I met with the owner of the hotel, she was very kind and a pleasure to speak with. I booked an excursion for water rafting which is a full day out and it took me no more then 5 minutes. The receptionist called the company and booked everything in. I already knew the price was $99 per person but only had local currency so reception kindly said I could pay there @ reception. No extra was charged. It was bang on the exchange rate. Very simple and helpful. I would highly recommend the rafting it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. The pool. Beautiful, quiet, surrounded by lovely gardens. There is a lovely waterfall there looking at other reviews hadn't been working for a while but it was working during my visit and was just beautiful :) Additional info. There is a private path to the beach, it's less then a 5 minute walk and it's very quiet and breath taking when you get there. There are a few nice little restaurants around for lunch and dinner within walking distance and a shop with everything you could need. We tried to stay local but I did see on trip advisor there were more restaurants a couple of miles out which you can either hire bikes Or grab a taxi to get too. There is a lovely stone baked pizza place less then 100 yards up the road which I would recommend too and of course the hotel restaurant If you have chosen Costa Rica as your destination then expect to hear the wildlife! Yes there are monkeys that will wake you up early and birds tweeting but that will be anywhere in the country! Don't come to Costa Rica if your going to complain about the sounds of nature. It's an incredible experience and if that puts you off then I wouldn't recommend anywhere in the country (believe me I've stayed in various places and this doesn't change!) I don't think people have been fair on this place at all. It is a nice find and I am very happy I stayed. Me and my partner had an incredible time and I hope to return again. Claire & James x
"a very stylish accommodation"
Hi guys, We have been here before. This time we got bungalow 7 (not 13) No 7 is smaller, but has a better shower. And in this room, there is wifi. (shorter distance to the lobby) What a beautifull "garden". It is a masterpiece. A replanted jungle. The breakfast is really good. One minus: the staff. Some members are very grumpy, they have always a bad mood. No warm welcome on arrival. In staccato: Voucher!! Creditcard!! Passport!! I am an early riser. So at 6.30 I asked for a cup of tea. You should have seen the face of the waitress. (Was this an indecent proposal??) Regards schliek.
