loved it!

So great. We stayed one night in a room on the main property, which is in a great location. It is a bit noisy, but otherwise great. The second night, we stayed at the chalet. 10/10 would recommend the chalet. It was a large house with so much space and a beautiful dining room table, and we loved it. It is about 3-5 minutes away from the main place, but it was worth it. We would definitely stay here again. Also, the staff at this hotel are some of the kindest human beings. And they serve free breakfast from 7:30-9:30.

Just ok

Allen was an awesome host. We had issues with the fireplace smoking up room and he moved us but still would not recommend using the fireplace, very bad installation. The breakfast was mediocre and food at the restaurant was ok but not great. The service was good and the property is lovely We live in Sarchi and it was a short drive. Weather was atrocious. Rained everyday but we made the best of it. Probably will not stay in this area again.

A very good place. We felt at home. We loved the hummingbird garden. The retro-junk-art is a very well executed ensemble!
