Heliconias was everything I expected and then some. The staff was the most accommodating staff I've ever encountered in my travels. The lodges are beautiful and makes you feel like you are with nature. Also, great food ! Highly recommend!!

As a first time traveler to Costa Rica, I had seen some of these same articles so I was a bit apprehensive but I contacted the hotel and they reassured me the roads from the airport to the hotel were in good condition and this was indeed the case. The roads do tend to be somewhat narrow and a bit hilly and windy but they were not all that difficult in this region; other areas may be more difficult.
My nuvi GPS with NA maps included Costa Rica and my Verizon phone had data most of the time.
Note that Costa Rica does have some unusual accident liability laws; prepaid insurance is not valid there and is a bit expensive at the rental agency but you should strongly consider purchasing it.
