    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    WHATEVER YOU DO. DO NOT STAY HERE. I REPEAT DO NOT STAY HERE. THE FOOD IS OLD, STALE, HORRIBLE, I ASKED FOR CLEAN TOWELS AND THE OWNER AND I GOT INTO A SHOUTING MATCH. HE EVEN TOLD ME GO BACK TO AMERICA. WE CHECKED OUT AN ENTIRE DAY EARLIER AND WAS CHARGED A 25$ US CANCELLATION FEE. FOR WHAT??? Only God knows. STAY AWAY FROM THERE. ITS DESERTED, NOTHING TO DO AND NOT AS DESCRIBED AS IN THE PUCTURES ON THE WEBSITE.

    Not a resort for family with kids

    Desk staff was rude. I booked three adults through Expedia but had no proof and hotel said I only had reservations for two and wanted to charge me an additional $700 for the third person. Breakfast was any kind of processed meat they could get from the garbage. The fruit was local and great. Will return to Costa Rica but would never recommend this resort. The bedding and pillows stunk. No coffee maker in huts.

    Great spot to be away from it all.

    Card machine for paying bills seems to always be offline and not working. The hotels grounds where beautiful and he staff was great. The rooms let in mosquitoes by the hundreds it seems like. Doors always closed and no windows open. Every night we had to hide under the sheets to keep from getting eaten alive.

    A beautiful jungle retreat

    We truly enjoyed our stay at this off-the-beaten-path property. Tucked away along the coastal highway, it is in close proximity to the many beautiful beaches and waterfalls of Osa province. We were given excellent advice on nearby sights by the resort owner. The resort bungalow was roomy, well built, and contained a small kitchen that was a huge bonus to my family. The included breakfast was delicious and the service wonderful.

    So so

    It's a lovely setting in the jungle but very muggy of course and the fans in the room can only help a little. We did see a very big and healthy cockroach as we were unpacking though. We informed the front desk of our roommate and they sprayed the room. When we returned, it was laying dead in the bathroom. You definitely need a car here! It's longer than 3km to Matapalo beach.
