This hotel was pre-arranged for me as part of a tour package. I did not know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. It exists in a very calm and peaceful setting, and almost everyone has noted how this all makes for a great stay. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly, and informative. It is out of the way, but easy and cheap to get to and from Santa Elena which was much busier and noisier, but they do offer restaurants, market, and souvenir stores as well as a visitor center, so would recommend visiting to buy necessities or to have a meal. I stayed two nights and went on a canopy zipline tour on one of the days mentioned. I had dinner in Santa Elena, and forgot some papers at the restaurant. Roxann, who was working the reception desk, helped me retrieve all my paperwork, and it cost me a fraction of what it would have cost if I had gone back into town to retrieve them myself. Can't say enough good things about the wonderful staff.
If you're looking for a relaxing stay in a plush environment, this is it. The reviewer who mentioned that it was cold was correct. I was there the second week in June, and it got really cold, so be forewarned and be prepared.
The hummingbirds and bird variety in general were fun to observe from the restaurant observation deck or while having a meal. The food was also very good.
