Our fav' in Costa Rica, everything was Perfect !
That was our favorite place in Costa Rica, we were in the villa and it is magnificent! Our hosts were so nice! The owner, the people who work at this place are so friendly! The best hotel ever! Thank you sooo much for this moment! Jose accompanied us for a hike, he shows animals, forest, magnificent view, cascade, self-electrical installations,… Peter was an amazing host, so friendly, we had the best dinners of our trip at their restaurant (prices are very reasonable), and we laugh a lot with the owner of the property and other clients. If you are looking for a quiet place, magnificent view, if you want to connect with the nature and have healthy and great meals, if you want to know the real Costa Rica : This place is the best choice you can make.

Wow! Awesome views and amazing service
The place is hard to find and requires 4-wheel drive, but if you call a few minutes in advance, they'll send someone to help guide you to the property. This was extremely helpful as we arrived after the sun was set. We were exhausted after a long day of traveling and driving but the wonderful welcome we received upon arrival gave a new wave of energy. The restaurant is excellent! Jeurgen and his staff are exceptional! They make sure that our every need is met. The views are spectacular. We loved this place and highly recommend it to others :-)

Very Good8.0
Mountain Adventure
While the drive was terrifying at times it was well worth it! (Note: do not make the adventure without 4wheel drive!) The views were breathtaking and the hotel grounds itself were spectacular. The self sustaining farm provided ultra-fresh food daily, which was prepared by the owner himself. A former architect, Jeurgen the owner, created a unique and welcoming environment with 5 star atmosphere. We were greeted by Peter, our host, who accommodated any requests that we had made during our stay. We partook in horseback riding and hiking to explore the area, visiting a waterfall and the property's many animals. Overall it was a wonderful stay and we can't wait to visit again!
