No kidding; the BEST PLACE EVER! So fabulous in every respect we came back again from the U.S. and will try to come each year. The privacy amongst the lush rainforest with incredible ocean view right outside your private patio was so appreciated. Monkeys, birds,...More

This hotel simply cannot be beat when it comes to privacy, beauty, wildlife, view, or food! We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday there and I don't know if he has ever had a better b-day! We both loved it and are already trying to plan...More
Stayed in April 2014. Great hotel in a beautiful area of Costa Rica. The area is touristy but the hotel feels secluded. The pool is beautiful, especially early in the morning before everyone (besides the monkeys) is awake. The private beach is a hike but...More

When I was there in April they were adding on new rooms and some ocean view rooms completed. The older rooms looked like were not updated, although still very nice with each room having its own personality vs the new ocean view cookie cutter rooms. So you have both options to choose. Yes there is some construction under way but they are quiet and respectful. Due to heavy rains and being set in a jungle, there seems with every business a need for daily upkeep. Dont let that sway you, its a beautiful hotel and amazing experience
