This resort has poor food, weak to absent WiFi, dilapidated bath rooms, only like warm water to shower, the swimming pools are out-of-order except for the "hot" spring pool, that was luke warm. On the positive side: Very friendly and helpful staff, property is surrounded by stunningly beautiful and well maintained gardens, has a creek, water falls, lakes with trouts....

The only thing five star here is the nature surrounding this place. We left our cell phone in the courtesy car. It was stolen. Our last day we forgot a couple of items in our room. Gone, supposedly they grew legs and left on their own. the decor of the suites, could compare to a cheap motel. Don't expect much...

We stayed there in August for 1 night, we got a Yuplon. The room was large, and private. The food was delicious. In the other hand the hotel needs maintenance. The cold water pool was not working, it was a shame because it's a large pool. So, everybody on that weekend were on the hot water pool, which is not...

Beautiful nature resort in mountains of Costa Rica 25 miles from San Jose near original capital.Great hot pool feed by spring waters. Wonderful personal and restaurant. Drove thru beautiful small Tico towns and found fishing camp where we caught our trout & it was cooked for the best meal of my vacation.

Although the property is away from worldly noises, the isolation makes communications very difficult. Mobile phones do not get signal, the internet service provided by the hotel is poor and unstable. The rooms are comfortable but difficult to work. The food in the restaurant although it tastes well, the portions of the different dishes are too small.In addition, the location...

Wonderful place, rooms clean, nice pool, but a very bad service at restaurant and the quality of food is not good enough for a hotel restaurant. Breakfast menu is very limited, is not a buffet is only one option, and the quality is not the better. Price versus value at restaurant is not fair enough, you can go a local...

The setting of Hotel Rio Perlas is wonderful. If you are the kind of person who likes to sit in your hotel room and watch TV and answer email, then this is not the place for you. To get out and hike the trails through the seemingly virgin forest/jungle makes for an unforgettable experience. We enjoyed the comfort of the...

When I first saw the resort it took my breath away, the website doesn't do it justice. The landscape, the spanish style suits, the pools, and trails--absolutely gorgeous. You can wake up in the morning and hear exotic birds singing while you drink your coffee, it is so tranquil and calming. We loved it. We stayed in the suites they...

This hotel consists of a lot of huts, some duplex, many individual, strung out on paths on a very long river valley. The valley is so steep that there is no path at the river itself. Cars are not allowed - they take you from the check in, by the entrance, and car park to your room, by golf buggy,...
