“Great way to unplug and connect with Nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

We visited in January and had a great time. The cabin was ample with 3 bedrooms kitchen and 2 bathrooms with hot water. My kids loved the fire place. To experience cold while in Costa Rica is quite unique.
While in Barva you have the feeling of being lost in the middle of nowhere yet you are 45 minutes from the airport. If you live in San Jose this is a great escape

Bought a promo with the Costa Rican version of Groupon and enjoyed out stay, the rooms are fully equipped with a fireplace, bathtub, kitchen and kitchenware, TV and wifi. The place is simply amazing, fresh air and quiet, the perfect place to escape from the city from time to time. The restaurant is very quaint and cozy, their food is cooked over iron stoves which simply gives everything a very unique taste. We went down to the river for some extra rainforest adventure.

Room Tip: Every apartment is different they are located at a place which is easily accessible and usually have...

We did not stay there, we just stopped in for dinner and I must say that they have a lovely little restaurant. We even had a good bottle of wine with dinner - the cost was slightly high, but to be expected in the middle of no where. The gardens were lovely and we enjoyed our meal which was probably average. It was a nice stop though and pleasant. The owners were serving and they were quite nice.

I made a reservation for a weekend and unfortunately I was the unfortunate customer who arrived last to find my room was given to someone else due to a flood in one of the rooms... I have to admit they did give me a compensation free night, however, when I took advantage of this free night they gave me a room, it was very clean however it had a problem with the bathtub my room starts flooding, then they moved me to another room, this room was not that clean, full of bugs, roaches going up and down the curtain, since the attention was so slow we just decided to move the bed away from the walls, and we found a floor full of dead bugs and a used g-string laying on the floor. They really need to take care of the place, there is lots of potential, At this moment I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone ..

This place is very primitive no one is there to greet you. The rooms could be very nice if they would do a little tender loving care, air spaces between the outer walls. The only heat is a fireplace and they forgot to give us wood one night, had to go find some to warm up. The restaurant was the best thing, the bad thing they don't open till 8:30am. No coffee pots in room. I don't think we will be going back, till we hear of some changes .

Room Tip: Not sure there is one.
