“A Perfect Wedding Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2008

We just had our daughter's wedding in Costa Rica. After a mountain top ceremony, we came back to Cuna del Angel for the reception. The hotel was center of our wedding week activities.

Cuna del Angel is a picturesque boutique hotel tucked in the rain forest. All rooms open out onto the pool, some with views of the ocean. The restaurant is incredible, one of the best in the area. Try the pesto gnocchi!

But more important then the building is the wonderful staff, led by Anna. She was there every step of the way, coordinating with vendors, and responding to every change in plans. Whether it was handling transportation to the wedding site, including 4x4s to reach the mountain top, to coordinating music, marimbas at the ceremony, mariachis at the welcome party and a tropical band at the reception, she handled everything we threw at her. In addition to the actual wedding, she also took care of a number of group excursions handling everything from reservations to transportation.

The rest of the staff was a reflection of this helpfulness and professionalism. They handled special brunches, catered the reception, learned new drinks for the bar and even humored us when we dragged them on to the dance floor. In addition to being helpful, they were incredibly fun to be around. They all offered a consistently high level of personalized service.

of an Angel.Great gourmet food pool spa tours free laptop/internet on site.Nice pacific views in the distance.Got to play with a howler monkey(Mono Congo)family right outside our suite got some perfect photos.All in all one of the outstanding stays of our journey.All staff
members were excellent especially the manager Julio who
took care to point out all local wildlife even coming to get us
and show us something unusual.Great experience!Planning
our return...a do not miss on the Sourthern Pacific Costa
Rica Coast and a great spot from which to venture further
south.

We just got back from Costa Rica where we had our destination wedding at Hotel Cuna del Angel. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. The rooms were great and the food was exquisite. The wedding was flawless and everyone there (32 guests) had a great time. It was by far the best hotel we have ever stayed at in Costa Rica.

Great rooms, great food. I've stayed there twice on two separate occasions. The one drawback is that it is right on the road. As such, you can hear the sounds of trucks rumbling by throughout the night. Also, it's not close to the beach.

Don't bother bringing children to the place. From what I observed, the owners have no patience for children.

15 room hotel, elaborate and perfectly decorated, everything has its own meaning and sense.

Rooms are really confortable, just a dream.

Restaurant is awesome, excelent international food, good cellar.

Staff perfectly trained, helpful, friendly, attentive.

As a boutique exclusive hotel we would suggest not to accept children.
