Vanilla Hills Lodge is perfect if you like quiet, superb service, and beautiful surroundings! We stayed in the Guanacaste suite (tree house king) & it is secluded, has an outdoor shower, & a nice deck with a hammock. We ate breakfast & one dinner - both were very good! Claudia set up the ATM cave tour for us & it was a day full of adventure - highly recommended. We stayed two nights but would have stayed longer if we had the time.
