Some friends of ours recommended Costa Rica for our honeymoon from January 11-18, 2012. We actually "fell" upon SFTS after we found the other place we were looking at was booked- and were we glad they were! Daryl & Donna are the perfect hosts; they are always there when you need them and are also willing to let you be if you want to veg on your vacation (which worked well with my husband's need to always be active and my tendency to just relax). We had the opportunity to stay in two of the four villas while we were there, both of which are absolutely beautiful; there are not enough words to express the awe we felt when we woke up our first morning to the sounds of toucans, monkeys, cicadas and the ocean waves! And it’s an extra plus that SFTS is right in the middle of all the places you’ll want to go! We highly recommend Melanie, an excellent masseuse who came to SFTS to give each of us massages on our first full day, the Don Lulo horseback ride to Neyauca Waterfalls, Dominical Beach, Flight of the Toucan zipline tour and Exotica Restaurant, the absolute best restaurant we have ever eaten at! We will definitely be coming back, hopefully in the near future!
