Not a hotel but more like a villa or casita. We felt like it should be on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous (but it was affordable-shhh).
We stayed in the Monkey house. It was up a spiral staircase. The back deck was amongst the trees. We sat in the leather rocking chairs and watched the monkeys, iguana, toucan and butterflies. From the kitchen and living windows we could view the ocean. The four separate lodgings share a common swimming pool and the "rancho" which is a large open area (but covered) that has a TV, bar, tables etc.
Everything seems new. Very clean and Costa Rican contemporary. I felt pampered and well care for by Donna and Daryl. We stayed for about 10 days, taking day trips to go snorkling, hiking, exploring but some days stayed home and read and enjoyed just being in a great setting. No need to take a zip line, we were living in the flora and fauna amoungst the wild life! -- PS-Take a 4 wheel drive it's a steep road but by the second day, it's old news and no big deal. Enjoy the adventure.
