I was recommended this hotel by some friends. It is a unique place, located right in the middle of the cloud forest...it is a mystic place, the clouds surround it late afternoon. The location is impressive, the trees have ground around it so basically you see it when you bump into it! My room was very nice, decorated in white and blue, a queen size bed and the best thing was a fantastic powerful shower (lots of hot water!!).
At dinner time we were offered a set menu that included homemade onion bread, vegetable soup, honey chicken with salads and rice and ice cream with carrot cake...to complete this incredible meal fresh juice and coffee. After this feast we took the Night Safari, the guide took us to the forest near a stream-river where we saw so many frogs and lizards, some incredible insects and heard beautiful night forest sounds. When we arrived back at the lodge the guide asked if we wanted to see a kinkajou ??? We walk through the kitchen area and there it was an animal, something like a cross between a monkey and a bear with big eyes.....incredible.
Next morning after a great shower and a good night sleep, we were awaken by the sound of birds....it was just great..I cannot explain the magnificence of this!!! Went for coffee and a nice breakfast.
Had a fantastic time..it was so short that here I am again....I just needed to visit this place again to discover more of this enchanted and unique place before I go back home. This time my room is second floor in the back facing the gardens, can't wait to see the view in the morning.
