We only stayed one evening, on our way to Corcovado, but Danta was an oasis. We took the bus from Puerto Jimenez (40min-1hr) to La Palma. We got a "taxi" to Danta.
Our room was in the main lobby/hotel area but walked around on the trails and saw the other independent hut options available. We had some tropical drinks at the bar and enjoyed an amazing 3 course dinner. It would have been great for a few days stay.
They accommodated our early departure and provided a granola and fruit breakfast. They had arranged for another "taxi" (wooden benches on the back of a pick up) to drive us to Corcovado at 6am. It worked out great!
At dinner they asked if we would like a box lunch ($10) to take on our hike. This sounded like a good idea and they had them prepared for our departure. The contents were two sandwiches, juice box, an orange, and some candies. By the time we were ready for lunch, the sandwiches (ham with hot sauce/mayo?) were a soggy mess. We were sad/disappointed.
In any case, the stay was great. The decor was so unique and interesting. In speaking with the owner, we found out he let the local artisans run wild with their imagination and creativity. Danta is truly a one-of-a-kind place.
