The owners were so friendly and welcoming, we were treated to a close up view of a mother and baby sloth on our first morning and delicious fruit smoothies, the pool was beautiful, a welcome change from the beach and the room was beautiful and very reasonably priced. I thoroughly recommend staying here it's stunning!

This was our first trip to Costa Rica, 2 adults, 1 teenager. We stayed here for a week and plan on a return trip next year. The new owners, Yolanda and her husband, were so friendly and very helpful.
