Nice to be in a cooler climate - cloud forest. Great views from lodge. Off the main road - taxi to town. Rooms are very nice, clean. Lots of hummingbirds and small birds come to feeders. Regular 8 am Coati passes by all the rooms and lodge. Occasional Toucans, squirrels and other birds in trees. Night hike did not get...

Thank you for your review. We're glad you got the real nature encounter with the animals nearby and that our staff took care of you while you were sick. We want our guest to have the best experience while staying at our lodge. You probably got on a busy day and with a screaming group doing the zipline, 'cause usually...

What a little gem of a find. The rooms are clean, large and super cute and private. The food is delicious and the service here is fantastic.. The little hiking trails here are an amazing added bonus!! Highly highly recommend. Comes with breakfast. Tip. Don't leave things outside your room. The animals take them away if you do.

We spent two nights here as part of a package organised by Travel Excellence in Costa Rica (who proved utterly reliable) and booked through Travel 2 in the UK. The hotel is on a hillside above Santa Elena, surrounded by forest (though it was fairly dry when we were there so it didn't feel like 'cloud' forest). It has zip-wires...

Thank you for your review, indeed nature is the highlight here. We offer an unique experience where you can encounter nature like never before, starting with our bungalow-style rooms that were built in harmony with the cloud forest.

We enjoyed our stay in our individual cabin. I was surprised to see how rustic it was based on the reviews. Very eco-friendly and the people were nice. Convenient restaurant and the views from there are very nice. There was a tray of fruit outside to attract birds and animals. No a/c (not at all necessary) and no heat (which...

Thank you for your review. It's great when our guests really enjoy the rustic feel of our hotel. Lots of people come looking for luxury and room extras, but then realize none of that is needed, if you want a real cloud forest experience. Our accommodations at the hotel are designed to create a balance between nature and comfort. The...

From the moment we arrived and Eddie greeted us by name without introduction we knew we would like this place. The room was just as advertised - spacious and comfortable, bathroom too. We rented a car and drove from Liberia which was about a 3 hour drive much of it on unpaved roads but it was an adventure. Once we...

We stayed here for 2 nights during our adventures in Costa Rica. This place is wonderful. Huge property with great rooms and a wonderful breakfast. We had a family room and my kids (5 & 7) loved the bunk beds. They have wonderful grounds to explore, a zip line on site and offer a night tour that is great. Breakfast...

From the initial contact and throughout our two day stay the staff here were excellent; we pay tribute especially to Roxanna on the front desk and Gustavo in the restaurant/bar. Both were very informative and helpful. The best description of the cabin-style rooms was that they are 'homely'; furnished in wood and very clean and comfortable. The restaurant/bar/lounge area is...

This place is a 10 minute rough drive from town. We loved the room, it's absolutely beautiful, bed was huge and lots of storage area to keep the room tidy. There are several short walks you can do inside the property, and they offer their own zipline and night tour. Restaurant was great and service was exceptional (thanks Gustavo)! Also...
