BBI place is perfet, in the middle of the jungle, only 4km from the main road and very close to the center of Quepos and Manuel Antonio Parc. The swimming pool is also very enjoyable and the cottages are far one from the other, which guarantee a true intimacy. Nevertheless, we experienced a pretty poor service, we did not feel...

$240 dollars for 4 adults!!!!! Are you absolutely kidding me. Let me be absolutely honest,The kids saving the rain forest is an incredible organization and the volunteers were fantastic. My concern is with the link to the Blue Banyan Inn.The tour promised a tour of the Clinic which was fantastic and the conservation student was knowledgeable and extremely personable however...

This place has mostly stellar reviews but we were puzzled by the very few reviews with complains. So here's our experience First, the location is stunning and the bungalows very comfortable. The place is very quiet and it did get us closer to the reason why we came to Costa Rica. It is very affordable for the quality of what...

What a gem! I will admit it was a little difficult to find and a bit frustrating but otherwise what a find. In the middle of no where which is exactly what we wanted. Traveling on a dirt road through palm plantations was absolutely beautiful. Chip was wonderful to deal with and meeting all the volunteers from Kids Saving the...

Although we weren't aware of the remote location when we first arrived at BBI after a long day of traveling, the way Vurnita welcomed us was heartwarming. Although BBI is a bed and breakfast and does not have a restaurant and there are no facilities in the neighbourhood, she gave us some pasta and vegetables and a cookie-dessert, so we...

First of all, it took us about one hour to find this location once arrived to Quepos. It was dark and we didn’t get any information from the owners on how to get here. Luckily I speak Spanish otherwise we would never find it. Once we finally arrived (7pm), nobody was really here to welcome us and when they finally...

Thank you for reviewing our hotel and I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay here. I have a few comments about you review: -Did you specifically ask for directions to us?

We visited the Blue Banyan Inn for the final two days of our vacation. It was a welcomed respite after driving around and being in more crowded areas. If you haven't seen the more "active" areas first, you might feel a little restless. But for us, it was perfect. We came with our 7-year-old son, who loved the beautiful pool...

Quepos is where we wanted to be for surfing, but the idea was to spend time just surrounded by the peacefulness and beauty of nature, spectacular mountain views, only 15 minutes away from the beach. The road to get to BBI is unpaved, but in great condition, in an agricoltural area with fields and fields of palm oil trees: very...

We recently stayed here several nights while visiting Manual Antonio park and nearby attractions. Our cabin was attractive. The grounds are lovely. The rural location, blessedly, is away from the noise and commotion of Quepos and Manual Antonio. It is not on the ocean but has a large swimming pool and view of the mountains. A good reason for staying...

This is owned by a retired American who clearly has no interest in customer service. The owner DOUBLE BOOKED our romm.
