Nothing but good things to say about this place - strong recommendation.
We left Manuel Antonio because we didn't like the crowds. We stumbled across this place, stopped and stayed for 3 nights. I wish we could have stayed longer. The safari tents were luxurious with lovely tiled floors and elegant bathrooms. Calling this camping is misleading. I have not stayed in any hotel that was more comfortable. Loki and his wife manage the place very well and Alex deserves a stand-out mention as he was a very caring and conscientious member of staff, making several pots of ginger tea for my wife when her stomach was troubled.
The swimming pool was very nice and clean. I wallowed in it like a hippo for several hours per day as a way to escape the mid-day heat.
The tents were without AC and I wondered if that would be a problem. It wasn't, despite the fact that we stayed there during a very hot spell. At night everything cooled down and even during the day, the onshore breeze off the ocean kept everything cool enough.
While there we saw a family of monkeys and a sloth.
The beach was wonderful. The waves were good for surfing, surpassing Mal Pais where many surfers go. The beach was both huge (many miles long) and practically empty. Very good sunrise and sunsets.
