I can't say enough about what a terrific place this is. We stayed in the suite and it was wonderful. The hotel is actually on a small dairy farm. It is a very quiet place and the views are spectacular. It is a short drive from both Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfalls. There isn't a restaurant but they do serve a delicious traditional Costa Rican breakfast every morning that includes fresh cheese made on site. My only complaint was that the hot water in the shower was a little quirky (hot one second and cold the next) but considering everything else it doesn't merit withholding a star. This place is a jewel, a family owned place that remembers that service matters!
Hint: Bring a jacket! Even though it was 87 degrees in San Jose it is MUCH cooler in Poas!
