We stumbled on La Garza purely by accident and it proved to be one of the highlights of our Costa Rican trip. The grounds are sprawling and absolutely beautiful. From the hanging bridge to get to the main buildings, to the fantastic jungle surrounding your cabana while gazing at the river from the hammock on the back patio. The staff... More

I have visited La Garza several times. The staff is just great. Specially if you have the chance to see Ms Pegy or Mr Carlos (The Owners). They are there practically all the weekends taking care of the Hotel and the visitors. The horse ridind is very good. Ask them to take you the hidden forest and also to cross... More

This place is gorgeous! It is a place that is out of the way and out of the tourist-trap atmosphere of La Fortuna. If you want a genuine Costa Rican experience, stay here! We were there in Nov. 08, and the only other guests were Costa Ricans. This is a place they go on vacation. The staff speak little English,... More

This hotel is a bit out of the way of the typical La Fortuna circuit, which didn't bother us at all--the grounds are gorgeous. We were almost the only people staying there at the time (we think there might have been one other couple), which made it very private, and given the enormous, lush property, that made for some very...

Hotel is nice and grounds are pretty. Food is very good and staff very friendly and accomodating. Rooms are clean, but spartan, with no TV or telephone. Dial up Internet is available at the office.

La Garza is a beautiful hotel located about 25 min outside of La Fortuna. The staff are great and the property is well maintained. There are many animals to be seen on the property, you just have to look. The rooms are basic, but clean. Breakfast is wonderful, typical Costa Rican, although they also have pancakes. Everyone in our group... More

Our stay at La Garza was far exceeded our expectations. This place is a working horse ranch complete with it's own dairy. The staff provided excellent service and given our inability to speak Spanish, they were very accommodating in their attempts at communicating with us in English. The rooms are clean and the grounds are very well tended to. The... More

We will second the positives being said on this place. The setting is beautiful, with gorgeous birds, butterflies, and flowers abounding. The service is great and the ambience relaxing. The working ranch gives it a "real life" feel. The horseback ride is a highlight. The food was basic, but it was served with care at very reasonable prices, so we... More

We stayed at La Garza for 3 nights with our four children in two bungalows. Price was very resonable at around $80 per bungalow. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. Pool was very nice and there was even a small play area for the kids. The food was great and staff fabulous. They even offered to babysit for... More
