the noise from trucks that were downshifting during their descent down the highway was really bothersome. as was the minifridge that was in our room.

that said, the hotel was very beautiful, our room immaculate, and the staff extremely hospitable. we dined at the restaurant one evening and was very impressed by the quality of the food and level of service. front desk was very helpful in arranging the day's activities by offering recommendations and calling various guides.

I knew I'd be alone for three days between the end of my bus tour and the arrival of my friend's wedding party. To make it more enjoyable, I decided to splurge and book myself into a spa. Unfortunately, I was unable to get one single spa service while staying at Cuna del Angel. The staff tried, but they were unable to reach the masseuse. The hotel itself was was beautiful. Every room was named for an angel, unfortunately it made it difficult to find your room. The hallways were dark. The food was DELICIOUS! Some of the best food I ever had. The chocolate cake was to die for! The service great! I'm a New Yorker and did find the prices high.

I hate writing reviews, but will extend my words of experience because I relied heavily on the reviews of others to plan my trip.
Face it, you go on vacation to get away from your busy daily and to relax. You want to leave all cares away and simply live in the moment and think of nothing but the fun you intend to have. Cuna Del Angel knows this and insists that you do by first slowing you down right from check in. After checking in, and before you go to your room, they ask you to have a seat while your room is prepared. This is not a time to get upset that you have to wait. You are overlooking the jungle with the ocean in the distant. Thats when they hand you a local fruit drink and you start to realize that you are unwinding from the flight...you are cooling off and taking a breath. This, is how you are treated the entire time.

The rooms are beautiful and extremely clean. They are furnished with proper furniture, not typical hotel cut-outs. There is attention to detail everywhere in this hotel.
The grounds are well maintained and the pool has a view to get lost in.

You cannot go wrong with this hotel.

We loved Cuna del Angel. The spa is so convenient (especially for last minute pedicures and massages) and the receptionists are very accommodating as far as setting up tours and activities. We scheduled most of our activities the night before after 6 p.m. and we were still able to make snorkeling, zip lining, fishing the next morning around 7 a.m. No need to stress out ahead of time about planning your trip if you stay here. They will make it happen. Alana in the spa is so sweet and she is a physical therapist as well so her massages are very good. The drinks in the restaurant can add up quickly $$. The food is very good and the atmosphere is perfect. Great music, dim lights, and a sweet waitstaff. They also have Air Condition which was very nice after a long day of being outside. You must set up a day of snorkeling...don't forget to wear a lot of sunscreen on the back of your legs! The snorkeling was by far our favorite day. We saw sea turtles and tons of colorful fish. The guides were great. One other thing about the hotel....I wanted to walk to the ocean from the hotel because it is sitting on a hill and you can see the ocean. We found a hiking trail to get to the ocean-the hotel doesn't tell you about it. Take the road by the pool up the hill past the parking lot and then it forks off to the right. Then you will see a trail into the jungle. It's only about a ten minute walk. It was beautiful. We spent our last sunset there. It is a little steep, but well worth it. We wanted to be on the ocean, but it was fine. We heard monkeys from our room and saw lots of birds. We had a great time at Cuna del Angel. It was a perfect ending to our honeymoon after spending the first week on the Carribean side of C.R. cheers.

The staff here made our stay exceptional. We were here for 4 nights and loved it. Angelica, Diana and Loana at the reception desk helped us plan excursions, they made reservations and gave suggestions about local activities, beaches, etc. The restaurant is wonderful with Danny, Mena (chef) and the wait staff...we were spoiled. Breakfast, lunch and dinner...all great. My husband had contacted the hotel befor we arrived to request a special birthday cake for me. I was so happy when Danny and the chef came out with my delicious red velvet cake! I have never been so suprised. In the spa, Illiana gave us the most relaxing and much needed massags after a long day of hiking. Everyone should experience her amazing hands. The rooms are nice and clean. The pool is beautiful. The scenery is spectacular. The location is great for people who like small, intimate, quite places. We had only one minor air conditioner problem, but it was resolved quickly.

We stumbled upon this place and wish we would have stayed here longer! It's very quaint, right in the forest and not far from the beach (a long walk..about 3Km), but you can see the ocean from the rooms. It's very clean and there is air conditioning. The food was outstanding in the restaurant and the service great. We will definitely stay here again!
