Cuna De Angel has amazing food, architecture and ambience. It's just not worth the price. The food and the lemonades are good. Its a good break from Dominical when you want to eat something amazing.
However, its like a spa resort and this business model is so hard to do in Costa Rica because Ticos are underpaid, there is a high turnover know little about spa treatments and high customer service.
I remember the hairstylist doing janitorial work until some girl would dare get their hair styled. The quality was upscale tico but the price was hundreds. My girl-friend was crying for days. But, hey its pretty much common sense not to get your hair cut in a foreign country. But, hey, we were living there. We had no choice.
The European boss is nice. The spa treatments are probable cost one more star than they are worth. But, hey its Costa Rica. There is an American Massage therapist at Villas Rio Mar who might do it for cheaper. I am not recommending that place either.
Cuna does not have much of a view either. Jungle blocks the path to the ocean.
I also heard that the hotel rooms would get too much noise from the highway that it is adjacent to.
The pool however, seems peaceful and the landscaping and primary rainforest surrounding it is top rate.
It is a 10 minute drive to Dominical. It is too far to walk it.
This is a place you visit for brunch or dinner. It's not a place you stay overnight at. Its just too expensive for the ammenities.
