    Beautiful views, spacious villas and the staff were outstanding. The food was excellent and the hotels location made getting to nearby activities very easy.

    Beautiful property, beware, you WILL be climbing a steep rugged hill to get to it. Great food and staff. We were in Villa 5 and you either have to climb a super long steep set of stairs to get to the main level or drive up to it. The safes don’t work in any of the rooms.

    The views were breathtaking, the landscaping was spectacular. Well curated place. The staff: Adrian, Ariel, Dario and Henry were so nice and great ambassadors of the Costa Rican kindness. My suggestion is that the sanctuary entrance fee would be waived for the villa’s guest. Also, a bidet can me included to keep with European standards. The food is okay, breakfast is the best however dinner lacks a bit of sabor. Overall, a beautiful place. I would definitely would go back again

  • 6.0.Good

    The views were out of this world. We saw toucans and monkeys from the trees in the property. Amazing view of the pacific. The problem was the first night we arrived with bags filled with groceries- was the power went out, and stayed out for 15 hours. So our milk went bad. The emergency light in our room did not work. I work remote and the internet stayed out the entire time we were there. I understand it is remote and things happen but a warning would have been nice. Also I saw a shuttle to the bus advertised but there was no shuttle and a taxi to the beach cost $33, each way. It was still great but I would have liked to have had this information before I chose where to stay. Also the TV did not work without internet. I have little kids so some of the amenities issues was difficult.
