A well feeling high above La Fortuna
Posted May 29, 2016
We stayed 2 nights at Green Lagoon. True to its name, we got the vibe and the feel of well being high above the town of La Fortuna. Very friendly and attentive staff - Andy at the front desk upgraded our room due to low season. Allen who oversees the bar and restaurant made us feel welcomed and comfortable. Christian who oversees the garden and landscape gave us a brief but informative free tour of the resort ground; we learned its mission and vision of providing a well being retreat (yoga, meditation, healthy diet..) for visitors and a sanctuary for area wildlife. It is still a work in progress on preparing its programs which Christian hopes to be available to guests by Sept 2016.
This resort is one of a kind. It is high above La Fortuna. From the pool area to villa's porch, amazing view of the valley. Our villa was huge and comfortable. There are other units above ours that have even better view. The standard rooms seem small and are by the pool area, can't rate them as I didn't stay there. The pool and Jacuzzi could use a face lift however. There are frog ponds, lots of fruit plants and trees, organic gardens through out, birds- toucans and hummingbirds etc...Included breakfast was very delicious.
Resort serves as trail head for the hike to Cerra Chato (free for resort guests). We opted to walk 15 min to the waterfall ($12 entrance fee), love it. We also walked to town, 40 mins.
Memorable part of our journey; highly recommend for a out of beaten path experience!
