This is always one of my favorite stays in Costa Rica. The staff is always helpful and friendly and the breakfast is amazing! Pool is comfortable temperature and clean. Gardens are nice but less variety than in the past. Still nice.

8/10 Very good

If you don't need a fancy place with AC etc. this one is good. I was here for 9 days and was happy with the bird watching around the property and close proximity to other birding places. The breakfasts were always great at the co-owned restaurant & they always had what I wanted for dinner. If you don't have a car, make sure to check their closing times because after 6pm there are no other options close by.

6/10 Good

A little in decline.
Great location, but sadly the place has declined a bit since I stayed here 7 years ago. Breakfast has moved slightly off sight, and was not very good. Rooms are very basic, but serviceable. They are what they are. Grounds are fantastic with a variety of wildlife on site. However trail that they used to lead a night hike on is no longer functional (that was a big draw for me). Place can use a facelift. Location is really great.

Comfortable no frills rooms, clean. Hiking on property. excellent provided breakfast. Amazing value. Several restaurants easy walking distance and town shopping only a bit further. Visited children's reserve and waterfall hike close by. Both nice saw lots of birds monkeys. Staff provided us with a small fridge and microwave available at reception area to reheat leftovers. Highly recommend for a slightly off the grid jungle experience.

The owner went out of his way to make sure we had a great stay. The breakfast was exceptional! Loved the surrounding area and the trails nearby. They put us in Casa Anna the first night when the reservation had a bit of a mixup. Loved the ambience and food at their nearby restaurant. Highly recommend!!

Ottima struttura integrata nella natura il ristorante annesso è di qualità veramente alta - purtroppo non si fa la raccolta differenziata e questa è una cosa inaccettabile!!!!
