    Great, cozy spot, but a few issues...

    This is definitely a gem of a spot. The rooms are spacious, quiet, and cozy. The grounds are very private and serene. The food was fresh and excellent. I was disappointed because of two reasons not related to the property itself: 1) I called ahead because my girlfriend had to get back to the airport for a late night flight (not an easy drive to the airport from here). I asked whether we should come earlier and could she get a shuttle back to the airport when it was time, instead of us killing all day waiting for her flight. They said no problem...except that evening when it came time for the shuttle the price increased by $100. What were we going to do? You have to pay it. 2) This property is NOT walking distance to the Poas volcano. If you're not familiar with the area and you want to see the volcano it's over an hour drive from here. Listed clearly on hotels.com is '35 minute walk' and that is completely false. If you're hoping to stay here because it's close to Poas you should find somewhere else
