We didn't stay at the hotel so this review relates only to the adventure. We took our 3 kids (ages 11, 14 and 16) and really enjoyed our day. Started with a horseback ride to the river tubing. The tubing was exciting and not for the faint of heart. After tubing, we zip lined and had no gas left for...

Stayed in February as part of a group . The hotel is essentially a collection of cabins and chalets in a dry forest scattered around a central bar/diningroom/swimming pool complex . The roads on site are in a very poor condition as are the "pavements" - full of trip hazards , not helped by poor illumination at night . The...

We had a nice little cottage with its own porch with chairs. The room was roomy and clean. The hotel had available on site different activities: horseback riding, tubing, repelling and more. We did not do them this time due to a time crunch (and we had done them before). We did walk over the bridge and explore. The pools...

Lovely wooden lodge bungalows with nice bathrooms, lovely swimming pool, bar and two restaurants serving good food. The spa is a series of hot and cool pools by the river, with mud experiences and swimming in the river. There is also the offer of full spa massages which I thought were excellent. In addition they offer guided walks of half...

We did the combo adventure tour here which included 8 zip line, rappel with rock climb, horseback riding, white water raft, lunch, "hot springs and mud bath". Zip line - was okay. Nice views. Guides didn't even speak to us which was odd. There are 8 in total. Rappel and rock climb - very hard. One of us did it,...

Went tubing for the 3rd time on the river next to the lodge. I keep doing it because it had been such a blast. But this time, they were 40 min. late taking us, forgot the 5 of us at the reception (we saw the truck go out with the tubes and another group, so alerted them), and none of...

Dear “teenmom”: It is great to hear that this is the third time you visit us! Thank you! We felt terrible that this time we did not have our regular performance during your tubing tour. We are reviewing your comments with our guides in order to make sure this will not happen again. As you mentioned, we have invested in...

Good sized rooms, comfortable beds, good WiFi in our room (9) excellent showers with plenty hot water and nice selection of shampoo etc. If you want extras like zip wire, tubing (whatever that is), massage they are here for a price. Swimming pool looked OK. Food was a bit varied. Dinner and breakfast were buffet style for us as part...

The place had good rooms to stay. The food was good. Still, there is something about this place that would not make me come back here again. We had room # 40 (from memory...might have been 41 as well) and the pool was not far away. Sitting on the small veranda the music from the pool was easily heard. The...

Upon our pm arrival, we wanted to leave. The room was not impressive and were frustrated we had pre-paid a rate of over $100. However, it was late and our options were few. We stayed and enjoyed our stay so much - we plan on returning on our next trip to Costa! Once we occupied the room, we found it...
