I travel more than most people for business. I've stayed at amazing hotels around the world and I've always done a more than good job at researching well where I'm going to go.
I was invited here for my birthday and it was by far one of the best memories of my life. We stayed at one of the suites which in my opinion, if you're going to go, get one of these, it had a studio, and a king size bed overlooking the ocean with an outdoor shower. The room was out of Wallpaper magazine and the details they put in really make the place special.
The pool was spectacular, the food was really amazing. We had a gourmet dinner for 60 dollars including several drinks that in the real world of say NY would have cost you $200. The owner is very very nice and accommodating and you really feel you are in a family-run boutique hotel.
Malpais is a jewel in CR. I'm from Costa Rica so I know the area well and this is definitely a place I will stay in again, and Moanda Lodge has become one of my favorite hotels in the world.More
