Excellent small hotel on a volcano, very private, next to a dairy farm and with an outstanding view of the valley and the mountains. This hotel is a labor of love for a CR physician and his family. Art everywhere, wonderful appointments and room design and beautiful location and large and friendly gardens. The rooms (I think there are five rooms and a cottage) are large and comfortable and the staff are very friendly and attentive. It's only a few miles from the Poas Volcano National Park. I'd certainly stay there again. A little advice: it's way up the mountain (ca. 6000') and you'll need a jacket or sweater at night; a car is a good idea as there is nothing in the area except a few (good) but isolated restaurants, and the volcano is a few miles away.We arrived by taxi but the staff made sure we got wherever we needed to go.
