The hotel is located up a dirt track off highway 4 and set in the forrest. The setting is lovely and peaceful until the large lorries drive by. Our room was large and spacious but there is no A/C and, as a previous reviewer noted, there is a slightly odd toilet arrangement. Be warned, there are also a lot of...

This was the most charming place. Lovely room although we are not great fans of open toilet failities!! The food was delicious. The staff and especially our Belgian host where charming. Loved Snappy tortoise but not sure how friendly he really was. We enjoyed our two night stay very much.

This is a great get away. Each room is in a set of 4 so you never feel on top of other people. Nice little swimming pool, and a humble restaurant which serves excellent food. Good rooms. It has a great nature walk in the grounds.

An historic hacienda that has been turned into lovely place to stay with nature walks, restaurant and cacao plantation. The owner is originally from Belgium. The rooms are atmospheric but basic with a slight rumble of traffic. The views and the surprisingly long nature trail are great. They do dinner in a lovely setting - tasty but a little over...

Spent 3 nights here. Lovely setting. The birds and monkeys around the place help you relax. Excellent food and service. The hotel is not the most modern but has a certain quaintness that grows on you. Nice pool and gardens. Enjoyed the walk through the grounds

We spent 3 nights at this most relaxing and hospitable lodge. The owner and staff were very welcoming and friendly. We had the lovely Chapel room overlooking the courtyard and forest, great for birdwatching from the balcony and for hearing the howler monkeys in the trees close by. The restaurant and 'lounge' overlooking the pond was idyllic. We were treated...

We stayed in the La Capilla suite for 2 nights, you have to go up narrow stairs, the room is quite basic but comfortable with a small balcony. There are open windows so you can get a breeze. Wifi was only available in the dining/reception area. There is a trail which goes around the property which is a nice walk,...

The rooms were simple but spacious, ours looked out onto a garden filled with flowers and colourful butterflies,No need for an alarm clock the Howler Monkeys helped us with this.The owners were hands on and delightful as were all the staff, very good Coco Bean given by the owner..well worth doing. Good fresh food. Nice walks in the rain forest...

This is a lovely setting right in the rainforest. One day we watched howler monkeys swinging right overhead beside the restaurant. A very peaceful place (except for an early morning serenade by the howlers one day - but that's part of the experience you go for). The food was excellent, and very reasonably priced. Kudos to the cooks. Javier provided...
