This place is unreal! The rooms are spacious, modern, very clean, with large balcony overlooking the valley and san jose - I couldnt sleep at night because I kept waking to watch the dazzling view! Shower is huge and feels like one of those external rain showers! Complimentary water, soft drinks, juices, biscuits in the fridge (nice change!). Hotel restaurant is well priced with decent menu and amazing view. The resort has a its own rainforest with huge waterfall if you are up for a 1.5 hour hike. The spa is so relaxing and not overpriced (compared to Sydney prices). Each treatment is in a private hut with straw roof and rainforest view - I highly recommend the chocolate indulgence followed by a jacuzzi. We stayed here for 1 night and moved on to Arenal. Should have based ourselves here the whole time and done day trips!! If you are tossing up staying in San Jose, give it a miss and stay here instead.
