Rustic but very charming, would return.
Rustic, but very charming! the welcome from Allan was very warm and the food delicious. The cabins are rustic, with septic, no a/c but nights cool and the room had a space heater that worked very well to take the damp out. The view magnificent, bushes were hummingbirds gave us a great show, fireflies and starry nights (when not raining). The grounds nicely decorated and the staff very friendly. Our goal was to visit the Poas volcano, which we couldn't do because of recent eruptions, but got to view its top and smoke. La Paz Gardens at 3 kms and well worth the steep priced entry, just beautiful. Would return. Just make sure you get a GPS to get there, and for that matter anywhere in Costa Rica.

Service was not good. It was difficult to find someone at the reception desk. But they were friendly. Rooms were some weird but fine. Landscape is beautiful. Close to the attractions. Pictures at the web site belongs to some rooms. Not all of them are same. There were lots of humming bird feeding cups, non of them functioning. I was very sorry for the humming birds which visited all the cups. I hope someone notice this and add some sweet liquid in them.
