"Osa vacations" planned our itinerary and couldn't have been more pleasant and accommodating. Ronald handled all our transfers in San Jose (he was right there waiting when our flight arrived from Atlanta at 4 a.m. - due to storms). Osa vac. arranged our stay at the Alta Hotel - each room has a magnificent view & balcony. The lobby and promenade should be featured in a magazine as should the interior of its La Luz restaurant. While a bit pricey - a salad, soup or appetizer is really needed to compliment the adequate but modest entree portion - I'm VERY glad we treated ourselves to La Luz on the last night of our trip. At least we had room for desserts- which were not over priced - and were yummy.
We spent a night at Casa Roland in Golfito. Gorgeous - Mahogany and granite, GREAT food - great value, fabulous pool with fabulous lounge chaises & umbrellas, fabulous gym, free computers with internet, will definetly go back to just enjoy pool and food. The town of Golfito seems very spread out - not too conducive to exploring/shopping.
