    One of the best places I’ve ever stayed at. We had an amazing stay for my girlfriends birthday. Ronald, Diego and Gerald and the rest of the team went way out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for our entire stay. The place is beautiful and the food was amazing. Would highly recommend for a relaxing trip in the rainforest.

    Lower Your Expectations

    This is a tough one. The staff was amazing and could not be more helpful, but everything else was disappointing. No wifi in rooms, no water pressure, terrible food, small pool, tired rooms, no blanket. The money was a lot for what you get. The location, however, was great as it was near where we needed to be each day.

    One Week Stay at Tiki

    The facilities are nice and clean. The pool and deck are small, but fine. The best part about the hotel was the staff, Adrian and Girard, who were friendly, attentive and helpful. The worst thing about the hotel was the internet service. Was very spotty. There is no cell signal on the property so you have to rely on wifi and the wifi there was terrible -- coming in and out sporadically.

    Beautiful exotic property on a mountain side with views of the ocean. Great staff super friendly and helpful in guiding us with activity choices. Would definitely stay again and if you want a more exotic view they have a sister hotel that is amazing and we will definitely stay there next time because of the quality of the staff and properties. The other one is HotelThreeSixty.

    Staff was very courteous and incredibly helpful. Breakfast should be earlier than 7am, or at the very least have coffee available.
