Quiet, bucolic getaway

Posted Mar 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed 2 nights in this beautiful, bucolic setting. We didn't have a rental car (as most other patrons do) but called ahead and they gave very nice detailed instructions re how to get there by bus. One of the owners was there to pick us up when the bus dropped us off as well (would've been a few km walk!). The owners are super friendly and make extra efforts to get to know the guests and accommodate as much as possible. The room was great, very clean. There are great trails around for hikers including Rincon de la Vieja. The only downside was you have to eat all meals on premises because there is no kitchen for customer use, restaurant, grocery stores nearby. The meals are buffet and are a bit overpriced for the quality. They packed a lunch for us when we hiked the volcano and it was a bit small for the strenous nature of the hike. Had I not brought some of my own snacks (which I bought in Liberia), I would've had a hard time on that hike!

Secluded perfection

Posted Feb 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Amazing property in isolated location. Owners attention to detail and laid back charm infectious. After two nights we felt like we were visiting old friends. Pablo and Anna are the real deal, from thoughtfully prepared meals, fresh flowers in the thoughtfully designed cabins, rich local coffee, to arranging guided tours of pristine rain forests, geo thermal rivers of blue water, and experiencing the jungle far from the zip lines and tourist buses. This part of Rincon La Vieja is not that easy to reach, but once you've arrived, you will know why you came to Costa Rica to begin with.

Lovely family-owned ranch. Amazing grounds, gardens and landscapes. Beautiful view of Rincon de la Vieja and Maravielles Volcanoes. Eco-lodge cabin has all the comforts of home mixed with the sounds of nature (birds and other animals frolicking in the rainforest directly behind the cabin). Owners were extremely helpful and went beyond our expectations (even waiting up for us until we got back safely). They made tour and travel arrangements with local reputable family businesses and showed us hotspots that only locals know. 15km drive along a bumpy road (takes about 45mins) is well worth it. Great food grown on-site...ask for their chocolate cake with white chocolate icing...mmm!

Costa Rica At its best!

Posted Mar 5, 2012
Pros: Clean!friendly and authentic!
Location: You are in the middle of the forest and the views are stunning!
We had a wonderful time. Poblo and family are fantastic hosts. This is not a hotel experience. It is like family. You will learn a fantastic amount about Costa Rica and about all of Central America. Their farm is amazing, the food great and the setting well worth the drive. If you really want to feel Costa Rica, this is the place!

Great fun!

Posted Feb 19, 2012
Although you can reach the lodge by public transportation (bus), a 4x4 is needed for visiting the National Park. Some roads are very rough. The owners Pablo and Ana are very helpful in organizing excursions.

The Heart and Soul of Costa Rica

Posted Jan 29, 2012
This place is absolutely a delight! The hosts, Ana and Pablo are so warm and friendly, and were totally dedicated to making our stay comfortable, and fun. The food was homemade, and outstanding. The bungalows are clean, simple, beautiful, and very comfortable. Loved lounging in the hammock on the front porch. When you stay at La Anita - you are staying at a Rain Forest Farm. It is lush and full of life, and very serene and peaceful. We can't wait to go back some day!

exceptional

Posted Dec 22, 2008
Finca la Anita is a truly remarkable place, that felt more like a home than a hotel. Ana and Pablo, our hosts, made us feel most welcome from the second we arrived. After a long, nearly day and a half of travel, we were greeted by warm smiles, hot coffee, and fresh roasted macadamia nuts. The views were breathtaking. The cabins tastefully done, clean, and comfortable. The food delicious, fresh, and all natural. The people helpful, friendly, and welcoming. Ana and Pablo were a wealth of information, and recommended amazingly beautiful day trips. Our travel guide book became unnecesary. The ranch was difficult to get to, but worth every single bumpy road. Finca la Anita was, without a doubt, one of the best experiences we've ever had on vacation.
