My fiance and I stayed at Rancho Armadillo for five nights in January 2014. This was our first trip to Costa Rica together, and we were very excited to combine daily activities with romantic evenings. Rancho Armadillo proved to be a scenic and serene location. Each morning breakfast awaited us - hot coffee, smoothies, fresh fruit and juice, a waffle bar, cereal options, and an assortment of breads.
The room was spacious. And the bed was super comfy. Not that we spent much time in our room, but there were also plenty of English-speaking channels on the television. The free WIFI was an added bonus.
Rick, the proprietor, proved to be a knowledgable and considerate host. He had no shortage of recommendations of restaurants, beaches, and activities. (He even shared interesting details about the local wildlife.) It was such a treat to have him as a friendly and willing resource.
