We found this property through Jetsetter, who had an amazing deal. We drove ourselves from the airport in San Jose. Drive was pretty easy. The concierge had sent us directions which were very easy to follow. The driveway up to the property is pretty steep. It is paved and fine as long as you go slowly. Check-in was a rushed process. We were supposed to be staying in one of the rooms in the Zephyr Palace. When we received our keys and were shown our room, it was not in the Palace. We went back to reception and after some discussion were told the hotel had given us a complimentary upgrade. That was very nice, however they should have let us know that at check-in. Anyway, the room we stayed in was wonderful! It was very large, and had a private balcony with our own hot tub. The building only had 8 rooms with a pool for those rooms only. Everyday we had a beautiful towel animal with fresh flowers on our bed. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The Amphitheater is a wonderful place to watch the sunset. Just be prepared to share this experience with many other people. Biggest complaint about the hotel was the drinks. For such a nice hotel, the drinks were mediocre. They are over priced and watered down. Wine prices in the hotel restaurant are pretty high, so we didn't have any wine. Hotel setting is perfect to get away from it all and relax. Not far from Jaco if you want the city and the beach, but far enough to feel like you are really isolated. Would stay here again for sure.
