Had an absolutely incredible stay at Coyaba a few weeks ago with a group of friends. Mike and Paul were excellent hosts. Even before arriving, Mike was very prompt in answering any of my questions and concerns via email. He also arranged for private transportation to and from the airport with an excellent driver named Henry. We had arranged most of our tours prior to our trip, but Mike would have been happy to arrange them for us or make any recommendations. On one of our last days, he recommended and arranged an excellent nighttime rainforest walk on a private reserve with Hotel Si Como No, and also dropped us off to a local hiking trail that same morning so that we could hike to a nearby waterfall. Throughout the week Mike made several good recommendations for dinner, and even called one of the restaurants our first night to make sure they would be open for us to dine there. In the mornings, Paul cooked a delicious breakfast that was absolutely amazing every single time (and we stayed for 8 days)! He never made anything twice, and was very mindful of the dietary preferences of our group. In addition to our entree each morning there was always fresh tropical fruit, coffee, tea, juice and delicious homemade toast available. Some days we didn't even need to stop for lunch because the breakfast was so filling and satisfying! Overall, the level of service we received was wonderful, and both Mike and Paul went above and beyond to make sure we felt at home. In terms of the accomodations, the group of us shared two rooms that were both clean and comfortable. The decor was tasteful, the showers had hot water, and the ACs ran good and cold (a must for Costa Rica)! Free wifi was available too, and most of the time the signal was good. In terms of noise, the road is a bit noisy at night, but earplugs were provided for us in both rooms and the AC also did a decent job of drowning out some of the sound. As far as the rest of the property goes, it's absolutely gorgeous. The whole property is surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation and the pool and jacuzzi are both refreshing and clean. Some afternoons we spent hours at the pool, listening to music played through the outdoor speaker system while alternating between swimming and relaxing in one of the many lounge chairs surrounding the pool. Once in a while when we got thirsty we were able to grab a beer or water out of the fridge in the open air kitchen and mark it down in a notebook to settle up with Mike and Paul at the end of the stay. Overall, the accomodations and amenities are great, especially for the reasonable pricing! As far as location goes, you have to be aware that it is not located in the middle of all the action. It's basically halfway between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. There are a few restaurants and other hotels within walking distance, but other than that you will need a mode of transportation to get to the beach and to the park. However, the bus is fast, cheap, safe, and comfortable..and it stops right across the street! It runs fairly frequently and we rarely found ourselves waiting too long to pick it up. Other than that, we took some taxis in the evenings and never had much trouble flagging them down, and only had one driver try to rip us off. Overall, we had an unforgettable time in Costa Rica, and we truly enjoyed our stay with Mike and Paul...hopefully it won't be long before we'll be seeing them again!!
