Booked this hotel for my birthday, we thought it would be different, and we were right.
First of all, when you get there, you go thru this path, once you get there you don’t know where to go, it’s confusing. You walk the different pathways but don’t really know where you are goin

Thank you for your review. It's strange all your comments because I think that you were thinking that a Eco Hotel has a great entrance of a five star hotel of a big city, with lots of lights bellboy and all the rest that would make you feel on the top of the world. This is a hotel very clean in the middle of a rainforest full of wildlife and you should not expect to have all powerful shining lights everywhere because then this would be a place where you could not see any animal. About reception you have always a person at least at reception. We had problem with the telephone line that is not of our responsibility, but for this I don't mind to apologize. The roof is bamboo and of course we have geckos living on the top of the roof but they only make noise that is all, but this is normal in any house in the tropics. Coming to the hotel and you find yourself lost well this is amazing, because you were expecting to have a highway direct to your room. I never read e review like your one, but it's good to find out what clients think about this place. I suggest that you should look for other kind of hotel away from the forest. By the way, our gardens are considered one of the best of Costa Rica, so you must be used to gardens in a greenhouse, but those we don't have. Have a good day, and remember that life in the tropics is different from the life on a big civilized city that you come from.

If you seek quiet, peacefulness in a beautiful setting, this is it.
Been visiting many years, and have found nothing around that can compare.
Very clean, friendly, caring, courteous staff.
Various day outings, and beach near by.

Do any of the rooms have ocean views?
Hello, This is a beautiful place with beautiful gardens, the rooms do not have any ocean view but you will feel in the jungle. You do have for me one of the most beautiful beach in the area only 4 km away "Playa Linda" or also even closer "Playa Matapalo" also beautiful, if you do not have a car they have bikes to rent.
