This is family ran business. Very professional staff! Very clean! Beautiful Well maintained grounds. Delicious Breakfast..Fantastic View of the Volcano! Lovely Toucans flying about. Flowers breath taking. Near relaxing local native hot springs. Close to shopping area.

Cannot say enough good things about this place! I stayed in a superior room ($10 more per night than a standard room). Beautiful balcony overlooking the back garden AKA mini wildlife reserve!! Family run hotel, all the staff went above and beyond. Excellent value. Will stay again if I ever make it back!

These bungalows are a wonderful way to visit this fantastic vacation spot. This small hotel is owned and operated by a family that is extraordinarily helpful in arranging all sorts of activities in this area of Costa Rica. Starting with an amazing breakfast, visiting the waterfalls, zip lining, hiking on the volcano, relaxing in one of the many hot springs...

The hotel is family owned and operated, which made for a wonderful stay. The delicious breakfast is served on the deck of their home, and we got to know the family (and their animals!). The room was clean and sufficiently comfortable, but not luxurious. We enjoyed the hammock out back. The biggest improvement I'd suggest would be the lighting in...

This place was absolutely perfect and an amazing introduction to the warm hospitality of Costa Rica! Our room was exceptional...it was large yet cozy, with a comfortable bed, spotlessly clean (cleaned every day), modern yet rustic, with quality furnishings and finishes. We could not have asked for anything more! Free parking is available and a large, delicious breakfast is served...

I loved this hotel. Everything was perfect. The place is beautiful and the amenities offer everything you need. I strongly recommend staying here! There's a trail to a river right from behind the room, which makes you feel very in touch with nature. It's perfect for a romantic trip.

Family owned and the service was more personal! We absolutely loved our place! It was charming and inexpensive. It was clean and really close to town. Would definitely stay here again! There's also a river behind the cottages which is a bonus!

I cannot say enough great things about this hotel. Its not really a hotel though since each cabana is private. The rooms are air conditioned have hot water,plenty of outlets,porch in the front and back with a hammock. What a great spot. We were only here for 2 days but we were sad to go. I highly recommend this place...
