Luxury in the Jumgle!

Posted Apr 18, 2014
What a great place. The staff was great, the room was great. This is a really romantic hotel as well. We came to see the waterfall and river AND had two nights of romance. When I come back to Costa Rica, this hotel will be on my itinerary.

Great Hotel but very remote--thus the hideaway!

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: We loved everything about the hotel once we arrived. the staff are great.
Cons: Just know that you should have 4 wheel drive to get to the hotel.
Location: The location is remote. We loved the hiking and the natural surroundings.
The hotel is fabulous. Everything is picture perfect. But the ride to the hotel is very rough on a long gravel road. Our car almost did not make it up the road at the steep incline---actually rolling back at one point. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as long as you have 4 wheel drive. The rooms are beautiful, the walk to the river great. The food is good but very expensive for Costa Rica.

Worth the rocky drive

Posted Apr 11, 2014
Cons: If I could change anything, it would have been to stay here longer than we did!
Location: National park with breathtaking waterfall and lagoon
Walking in the door was an experience in itself. It was absolutely stunning. The woodwork, art, fountains, wind chimes... I could go on and on... We were greeted at the front desk with fresh juice and then escorted to our car with a gentleman to help with our bags. He rooks us by golf cart to our room after giving us a tour of the available facilities. On the way to our villa, he pointed out walking paths on premise (which were beautiful btw). The stone path, surrounded by flowers and fountains with exotic fish led us to our own villa. A private cottage of our own, with dark wood floors and decks, and bamboo ceilings which I fell in love with. The room was amazing. The bed had a canopy, which was uber charming, the bathroom was HUGE, the walk out shower was so cool it was beyond words. It was great just sitting on the patio listening to the sounds of the rainforest next to us. We went to the front deck asking for directions to a nearby waterfall we were recommended to check out (and although it was a challenging hike, it was well worth the beauty!!). He gave us a map and verbal directions and found it was very close by. We hung out by the pool for a few hours that day, and loved that there was a swim up bar (which unfortunately was out of service for the night due to maintenance ) but on the other hand, a server was walking about the patio bringing drinks right to you which was very thoughtful. Honestly, this was one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayedat

Beautiful and secluded hotel

Posted Apr 7, 2014
From the moment we arrived to the sad moment we left we were treated to an incredible stay. The suites are tastefully decorated with all the modern amenities. Along with the standard shower in the huge bathroom there was a private outdoor shower which I used on our final morning, very refreshing. My only regret was not staying here longer. The food and service in the restaurant was impeccable. Will definitely be returning some day.

Perfect honeymoon

Posted Apr 7, 2014
We stayed at the resort for 7 wonderful days. For the most part it was quiet and because it only has 26 rooms it never looked crowded. We went at the end of march so it was still a little cool because of the winter which makes it Ok because it was never humid. The food was good but we ate at the small restaurants around the resort. The staff was wonderful and they helped up plan different excursions each day we were there.

Wonderful mountain hideaway

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Beautiful setting, spacious rooms, gracious staff. A four wheel drive is necessary. Remote region so it's perfect for travelers who like less commercialized vacations. We hiked and went tubing and took day trips to Fortuna for zip lining and to Cano Negro for a boat trip. The guides on the hike and boat trip were helpful and highly informative.

Awesome hotel!

Posted Mar 24, 2014
Pros: The room is beautiful. We loved the canopy bed, the spacious room, the Jacuzzi tub in our room, and the lovely balcony. The staff were so nice!
Location: Rio Celeste waterfall and also the river hike that is connected to the hotel.
This is an amazing hotel. The staff are more than accommodating and friendly. Our room was beautiful and they provided special assistance for our honeymoon. I totally recommend this place. The only drawback is the rough road in. I would recommend that you request a 4x4 (cuatro por cuatro) taxi or vehicle. Its doable in a sedan but much harder.

Beautiful Remote Location

Posted Jan 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Although the remote location on the VERY bumpy dirt road, the hotel was impecable. The rooms were over the top bungalo's that felt like your own little home. The pourch, outdoor showers, restarant and swim up bar, everything was beautiful. ON an exciting side note, The Bartender made us these A-Mazing shot called Flaming Lamborghini's. Everyone should ask for them!
