    • 8.0.Very Good

      The property is owned and operated by a very nice family, grandfather, sons, (daughter unsure) and even a grandson. The grounds are beautiful and our cabin with two private porches was great. The restaurant on site was a nice touch with good food at a reasonable price. The staff were very helpful with booking an excursion. We did the night walk and the guide was quite knowledgeable however there wasn't much to see. We did the same walk on our own during the daytime and enjoyed it. We did feel the price of $50 pp for the night walk was excessive and the meal that came with it was very overcooked chicken. There was a nice restaurant just down the street that we ate at one evening when the restaurant on site was closed. All in all, a good place to stay and would recommend it.

      Wonderful place like your own cabin in the jungle. Surrounded by blooming trees of all kinds. Staff was wonderful. Food was great. A bit musty smelling at first but gone when AC turned on. Had 2 small bats in our room the first night. Not scary just trying to chase them out the door in middle of night!! Would definitely stay there again.

    • 6.0.Good

      Very rustic and out of the way. Would recommend that you have a vehicle. No coffee or amenities in the room so for early risers there is nothing until 7am. It was the only hotel we stayed at that demanded a copy of or passport. When I requested the copy back upon leaving I was given a very hard time by one of the owners (a family run business). Given the treatment upon leaving and the lack of amenities, I would not choose to stay here again.

      Beautiful little oasis

      We loved our stay at this beautiful and quiet quaint hotel. The cabins are very cozy and we loved the back patio with hammock where we could play cards in the evening. The gardens are beautiful and the food was amazing! Thank you for the wonderful stay that definitely made our trip in La Fortuna amazing!

      We could not have picked a better hotel! The owners/staff were absolutely amazing. They were extremely kind and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable and we made use of the private balcony/patio. The food was delicious (both breakfast and dinners) and roadside bar was a lot of fun.

      What a wonderful place. Great, cozy cabin in a great environment. We can only recommend this to anyone staying in this area. The only thing to be aware of is that it is a bit away from La Fortuna. We had a rental car, so it was no problem and we appreciated the location.

      Exceeded our expectations! We truly enjoyed our stay. Our cabin was surrounded by beautiful greenery and flowering shrubs. Very private feeling! Great location, amazing for those who like to explore and hike. Family owned and run:)

      We love the back patio looking onto gardens full of hummingbirds, other birds, a huge iguana in a tree, and loads of tropical flowers! However the mattress, a/c, and other facilities are a bit rugged. The family that runs it are excellent hosts. Don't skip the river walk if you like a small hike!
