10/10 Exceptional

We were the only guests staying here which was nice. We booked sort of last minute and when we arrived the place looked close, but after we honked our horn a bit someone came to get us. Joseph was working at the tune and he was so very helpful and hospitable. He made sure we had everything we needed, answered all our questions, and helped us with answering questions about things to do in the area and tours. The room was very nice and was the property that is minutes from a waterfall and has a hanging bridge to see nature from. The only issue we had were ants in our room, but this is largely due to the environment the hotel is located in and this is a common occurrence in many hotels in Costa Rica. We noticed Joseph and he was quick to help us out. Overall it was a wonderful stay.

4/10 Fair

Did not have room when we arrived
We got to the hotel around 6pm, tired after a long jungle hike and looking forward to what looked like a nice room on the booking site. But we were told they do not have a room for us, despite our confirmed reservation. Would not even let us in on the premises to connect to the wifi and with no cell signal, we could not reach booking agency to raise the issue. They did recommend other place, which ended up being just a below-par tiny room with a small bed, no breakfast, and 15% more expensive. Well, it was OK to crash in for the night and it had an AC, but it surely was not what we booked.

This a little jungle hide away. It’s basically a dirt trail you drive through to get to this little jewel. The rooms are all modern clean with lots of room. Only down fall is it’s about a 5 minute drive DOWN the mountain to get to the restaurants and beach. Did I mention Montezuma Falls are right there a 10 minute walk. Top notch as far as I am concerned.

8/10 Very good

It looked kind of shady but the hotel is close to the Montezuma Falls which is was a plus. The hotel looked completely empty.

Great hotel as advertised. Clean, comfortable room, comfortable beds, great AC. Easy 10-minute drive to town. Even saw howler monkeys from the hotel restaurant. The only suggestion would be to have coffee makers in each room. Otherwise, fantastic stay!

The property is very well kept, the staff did the best they could, not their fault I don’t speak Spanish. It was very quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of town which is close and easy to get to.
