This is a fabulous property, with friendly, attentive staff. Our group stayed in two cottages. We had turn-down service every night and the best shower in our lives. Seriously, we all agreed, the shower is amazing. Having air conditioning is awesome! There is so much humidity in the rain forest that having air conditioning in your hotel room is something...

What a lovely hotel, everything was perfect, except the weather! Reception staff are outstanding, so helpful and cheerful. Rooms are fantastic, the jungle is on your balcony along with a huge hottub and comfy recliners, there is also a giant volcano which we did not see for 3 days due to rain/cloud. Beds are comfy, good linens, indoor and outside...

This hotel was sublime- when we visited we had just got engaged- and the staff kindly upgraded us to a bungalow suite- it had a Jakussi pool in the garden of the suite and it was just lovely! The hotel was really nice and the decor was beautiful. This place is a really relaxing hotel and we would definitely return.

Finally found a good deal and went for it. Although we didn't have much luck with the weather, we managed to enjoy the best out of the hotel. From the warm pools to morning yoga, we found every detail to be just right. Not too much nor too little, food was great and best of all, the service. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for three nights and were thoroughly impressed. The staff was incredible - every single person was warm and welcoming, and always a step or two ahead of us. The grounds were beautiful, very well kept and impeccable. The villa was great, with a hammock and seating area viewing the volcano and lush surroundings. The concierge helped us...

I have nothing bad to say about this hotel, the property, grounds and staff are above and beyond incredible. We stayed in a Casita Deluxe Room that was just beautiful. There was both an indoor and outdoor shower, granite countertops in the bathroom, bed was very comfortable and the room itself was very spacious. The concierge, Noily was here name,...

Wow, this place is seriously luxurious. We are not luxury hotel people, we camp and really like cabins but this was a very nice break from tradition. The grounds are absolutely stunning with their well manicured but still naturally abundant flora. Magnificent tropical flowers every where and enough palms to create a lot of privacy. We stayed in a casita...

I booked us in a canopy room for our one night stay, only to find we had been upgraded to a rain forest suite when we arrived. Words cannot describe our delight in receiving this upgrade. The room was fabulous and very private. The property itself is a rain forest jungle making the walkways almost like tunnels. Upon the checking...
