Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I spent the worse night at this hotel!!!! A romantic night end up with allergies in a dirty room. Bedding was horrible and I’m not sure it was clean. The mattress was very old and worn out. The bathroom wasn’t any better, flushing handle was broken, I had to remove the lid of the tank to pull the chain to flush it.

JUNGLE STAY
This hotel is in the Jungle and high in the Mountains by a non active volcano. Far away from alot of activities and resturants. They have a resturant in Hotel but if you want some fast food, have to go into town which is far to get it. relaxation and quite you will find here, no ocean is near. A MUST IS TO RENT A CAR WITH A GPS.

3/5 Okay

Family staff, great food & location
Owned & run by a family; very personalized & caring; food was delicious; very close to rain forests and volcanos; had path, on property, to waterfall, and saw sloths and orchids; fantastic view from upper level; rooms basic but clean. Hotel was away from the bustle of San Jose, so in quiet area, yet close enough to grocery stores and gas stations. We would definitely return there; very reasonable.

Had a great trip! Thank you
We went as a couple for a relaxing and yet exciting vacation and that's exactly what we got! The rooms were great, the view was awesome, and the friendly staff was amazing. I would definitely go back and stay! The hotel was very clean and staff was so helpful in finding things to visit and transportation to get there. Any where you want to go they can set it up. Had a blast and couldn't have wanted a better place to stay! Thanks again!
