The further up the hillside you go the better the views. We spent a lot of our time gazing at the Pacific. Be prepared for lots of climbing. The food was rather poor and seemed to deteriorate after an American group left. The drink served with breakfast tasted like bubblegum.

Our room in the 400s was spectacular, high ceiligned cabin style with extra accommodation on the mezzanie level and large corner bath in the bedroom. We had wonderful views from the verandah and saw more wildlife there than we did on the crowded cloudforest trails. It is a bit of a hike up from the reception and restuarant, but well...

We found the neighboring rain forest which is the principle attraction of this area rather a 'non event' and this undoubtedly influenced our view of this part of our Costa Rican experience. The hotel was however clean, quiet and offers a variety of rooms of differing sizes and with differing aspects, the upper of which offer wonderful views. Breakfast was...

Our stay there was very nice. The breakfast at the hotel was excellent, so was dinner. WiFi is only available in the restaurant or lobby, but it was very fast. All the people were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice.

Good location with excellent views - when it's not raining! Located on a steep hillside, it's a real trek to the top tier of rooms - especially during the aforementioned rain. The restaurant was average but nothing special; it's about a 15 min walk into the town for other dining options.
