We had a great time. It is in a convenient, easy to get to location and the view is great.
The pool and grounds are beautiful and well kept...the room was clean and spacious and the bed were wonderful!! Hand made by the owner with great mattresses. We wished that there had been a breakfast or at least coffee provided at the rancho. We had a coffee maker in the room but no filters so we went into town to get coffee and filters and milk etc. There is a refrigerator in the cabin as well as a microwave (cabin 3) This place is a great value and much lower priced than the fancy San Jose hotels like the Marriott so we didn't mind buying our own coffee and food. The managers were friendly and helpful. I had no problem with the internet connection (sometimes it goes down temporarily during heavy rainstorms but only for a few minutes and not an issue) I did miss having a TV connection with english channels because I am a typical US citizen that loves hearing the news every morning. When you are in Costa Rica it is about nature, not technology, but it still would have been a nice addition. From what I understand, the cable TV is being added soon.
