At home in the jungle.Posted Nov 10, 2014
Pros: Comfortable bed, private veranda, dog friendly, welcoming staff.
Cons: The lighting in the room was dim
Location: I was house hunting so--- beaches, waterfalls.
I felt at home here with my 95# yellow Labrador. The staff welcomed us both. Room was modern and comfortable. The restaurant served excellent dinner . I will stay here again on my next visit.

Beautiful getawayPosted Aug 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel Villas Gaia is a gem. We arrived after a long day of traveling to be welcomed and taken to our beautiful cabina. The pool is fantastic, the views are amazing, the restaurant delicious and the staff are extremely helpful and attentive. The only downside to this hotel was the location, if you don't have a car, getting around to see the sights can be difficult, however if you're looking for a beautiful, nature filled getaway, Hotel Villas Gaia is the place for you. Absolutely recommend this hotel, our stay was fantastic!

Comfortable CabinasPosted Jul 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
The cabinas had comfortable beds and were nicely constructed with high ceilings. The grounds were delightful including the pool at the top of the hill with a view of the Pacific. Wireless worked in the restaurant which was an elegant space that served a complimentary breakfast. Staff was very helpful and the operation is environmentally conscious.

Great To Stay Place for Value and EasePosted Apr 27, 2014
Pros: No televisions, no telephones, no AC -- great way to feel closer to nature but still have a hot shower and clean sheets.
Location: The Oso Peninsula is amazing. Pristine beaches, national parks and amazing wild life.
This hotel is a great place to stay for families. We heard monkeys in the trees outside our villa every morning, and with a rental car you can easily and quickly explore everything that Southern Costa Rica has to offer. It was a very friendly, quite place (except some noise from the road). It is not a five star hotel, but it is a great, clean place for the value especially if you want a more eco-friendly option. They had recycling onsite, solar heating for showers (never had any issues with hot water), full service restaurant, friendly staff, opportunity to book excursions and a naturalist. I would (and already have) recommend this place to family and friends.

A lovely first night in Costa RicaPosted Apr 19, 2014
We booked this on no recommendations as we had very few choices of available rooms. It was so much more than expected. Very friendly staff, large charming rooms, lovely pool and the best hang out room with a view. Dinner and the included breakfast were the perfect intro to cr cuisine. For the price, I couldn't ask for more.

Great Rooms & Scenery, Bad ServicePosted Mar 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
Pros: Beautiful scenery, nice outside decks with every room, nice pool, loved the wildlife that roamed freely around the resort (geckos, iguanas, lizards, even saw a group of white faced monkeys playing in the trees outside of our bungalow one morning) Cons: hotel service is not very good, staff is friendly but not helpful.. I tried 3 days in a row to book activities with them and they just brushed it off and said they would call and set it up but never did.. We ended up having to plan activities with Marvin down the road at Cabinas Hidalgos (great guy btw).. Also hotel restaurant is expensive and inconsistent. . Ordered the same dish twice during our stay, the first time it was great, the second time it was terrible and they refuse to do anything about it or take it off the bill even though I sent the food back and did not eat it (very rare because I have a healthy appetite and eat almost anything).. The same night we saw another couple both order what looked like lasagne, they tasted it and got up and left the plates.. My friend had the same experience with something she ordered after trying mine the night before.. it wasn't good, completely different even though they say it was the same chef, and they still refused to do anything about it.. We heard a lady complain about the service the first day we arrived, and at the time we didn't understand why because the staff comes off as friendly, but a couple days into our stay we understood why completely.. Much better food and prices down the road at La Costa restaurant (also Marvin's spot)
