Recent reviews

Good 7.2 From 17 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great place to stay
The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are reasonably priced, modest, and clean, and the staff is super friendly and so helpful. Miguel, the owner, showed us toucans in the trees, and fed us fresh coconuts from trees on the grounds . Francisco helped us plan excursions, and gave us lots of good tips about local places. If you come, don’t be discouraged by the rough 1/2 mile road in, because once you get here you’ll love the surroundings.
