Our stay here began with no one at reception for over an hour, so we patiently waited to check in. When the staff finally arrived he gave us a 20 minute run down of every single place on the map. I didn't realize at the time he was trying to get a tip. I understood when I asked

Hi Jenny, My name is Juan Carlos Lascaray, owner of Canaima Chill House. Why don´t you mention that you arrived at 12:30pm and you waited because the room wasn´t still ready, when check in is at 2pm? My employees are trained to make all our guests fill very welcome and that is why we all take our time to explain the area and activities. We don´t want to make our guests feel just like a room number. Mote than 90% of our reviews are EXCELLENT and if there is one thing in common is the way our guests feel like with our very nice, warm and welcoming staff. We provide one bottle of water as a courtesy in your check in but, as in most of the hotels, you have to pay for the extra bottles of water. I am 100% positive that the receptionist didn´t give your friends any "water jugs" for a tip, just because we don´t have jugs and we don´t have any drinkable water to fill in a non existent jug. We only have bottles of water for sale. Regarding the bathroom situation there a separation between the bathroom and the room with hanging bamboos and a curtain. We apologies if it´s too modern for you. We also want to apologies for the hot water situation. If you would have told us like the next guest that used your room did, we would have solved the problem in 5 minutes as we did once we where told. When it´s 35 degrees Celsius, 95% of our guests love our chill pool. Sorry we can´t have the 100% of our guests happy with the temperature. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Costa Rica. Pura vida!!!

We had a great time at the Canaima Chill House. We arrived very late, tired, and hungry. Joel, the reception manager, still came by to make sure that we were settled and he even ordered takeout for us. Joel helped us a lot and arranged most of our travel for us - the shuttle,

Check in closed at 5ish but we were left a key and note. The road up the hill is as described but the dogs rushing out barking in the dark and the litter and other debris means this is an unpleasant experience. We struggled with the lack of privacy and noise from reception in

I can’t say enough about how amazing my wife and I stay was here. Truly awesome. The place is so beautiful and staff extremely nice and accommodating. The best part is the hot tub though. I would surf for 4 hours a day and nothing more relaxing then having a beer in the hot tub

Beautiful property, location is ideal and quiet as long as you are aware of the big hill. 5 stars if a towel refresh would have been received as we stayed 3 days with the same towel service. Love the amenities and service otherwise.

Hola Nicole, We highly appreciate your taking time to provide your comments and feedback. We normally refresh towels every 3 days but we surely would have been happy to do it if you had requested us to refresh them. Pura vida, Canaima Chill House.
