First walking in after a long scenic gravel road we were greeted by 4 horses running together in the red sun it was like heaven on earth. Unbelievable. The bungalows were clean and slightly outdated but didn't mind it at all. The shower has about 12 seconds (literally) of hot water then you are bathing in cool to very slightly warm water. The pool was fantastic but the jacuzzi was not in working order. The hot springs were good as well not too hot but not to cold, there were 3 of them. Mud baths were out of pots, there was plentiful. The trail on the resort was about a 15 minute walk which wraps you back around to the pool area from the beginning to the end. The steam bath was nice even though it smells like rotten eggs it was very relaxing, but watch your feet it will get burned. Wear slippers or some sort of foot coverage. The food was good but not very Costa Rica authentic, I would suggest renting a car to get off the resort to get some real authentic food which is amazing. The tours are very reasonably priced for what it entails I had an amazing time riding horses and seeing monkeys and waterfalls abs zip lining upside down. There is no iron ironing boards, toothpaste available or anything of that nature. What you see is what you get. To sum it up, I would return, it was beautiful.
