This resort sits on top of the mountain in the middle of nowhere. The view is outstanding. However you do hear the nose from the airport and can watch planes land and take off when it is not foggy. SO you have the good with the bad!
Food- since it is so far away you must depend on the resort for your meals unless you have a car. This is not a bad thing this all my meal were wonderful and well priced. I had eggplant which was just fab ($12.00) and the salads are all great. Add chicken for $4.00 and you are filled. The deserts were $5.00 each and I can tell you the apple tart and chocolate pudding were special. The morning buffet is filled with fresh fruit , juices and assorted meats and cheeses. The homemade granola bars are so good!
Rooms- large! Beds great and shower just awesome.

Although the resort restaurant is small, it is packed with atmosphere. The service staff are wonderful. The food was amazing & the selection was fantastic. They also have a great wine selection. But the star of this restaurant is the spectacular view!

I had only 3 days to spend with my teen daughter before she joined a program in CR and I headed home. This was perfect: great on-site open air restaurant, spacious villa lodging, rate included continental breakfast. Great spa, the massages were super in a beautiful setting. The on site trails were good for a morning walk by 4 waterfalls. We did the offered horse back riding and whitewater rafting excursions. Probably could have saved a bit if I arranged them myself, but transportation was great and everything was taken care of for us. Would absolutely go back.
