We booked through Expedia. But upon arrival, we were told the whole place has been rented out to another family. Luckily, the other family was very helpful in helping us to book another hotel nearby.

Wonderful view, very large room with "open air" shower. Staff (Esteban & Stephanie) were extremely pleasant & helpful. Food (dinner & breakfast) was very tasty and dining areas quite attractive. Our only regret was that we only spent one night there !

This is not just an incredible small family operated hotel with stunning views of the jungles and ocean, but an extraordinary experience we will never forget. Stephanie is just amazing. She also made calls and reservations, found locations and sent wayz links to us, made us home made food and made it impossible not to go back

The proprietors bent over backwards for us due to a 5 hour delay (snow) in our departure from Mpls . We were able to talk with them throughout the delay, flight and drive down from Liberia. A wonderful meal was served to us privately on arrival at 10pm!!!!! Our first daytime view of Costa Rica was the next morning. The view was simply stunning.
