Went to this resort with six adults and a seven year old. We all had a great time with the activities at the resort. The waterfall hikes are a must and the zip lining tour was incredible! All of the tour guides were very friendly and informative about all of the local plants and animals. Also very relaxing soaking in the hot springs after hiking through the jungle. I definitely recommend this resort if you’re looking for various adventure tours in the jungle!
I had my concerns when I originally booked this resort because it’s in the middle of nowhere. I was extremely pleased with what we found: wonderful accommodations, super nice people and an extremely well-maintained resort. We stayed in a cabana and it was huge and probably the best part was the hammock on the porch. The menu was great at the restaurant no problem finding food everyone liked and it was well prepared, drinks were also very good. Awesome nature trails at the resort to see animals and flowers and butterflies. The Hot Springs were awesome, each one was at a different temperature and they were two normal pools to cool off in, one with a waterslide that is quicker than you would expect. We went on an excursion to Cathedral Falls, it is just as cool as the pictures look, the water was running high that day so we couldn’t go as far in as some people do but it was an incredible experience and a fun adventure. The other excursion we did was the Dino Park and waterfalls hike with horseback riding. If you have kids I think the Dino Park is awesome the hikes to the waterfalls were very beautiful and the horseback riding was a lot of fun. If you want a quiet restful getaway with some adventures available this is the place to go, you are literally in the middle of nowhere at a gorgeous resort.…
Wow! This place was gorgeous. Super relaxing. Loved the hot springs and pools. The grounds were beautiful. My room/cottage was comfortable and cute and had things I needed. The spa services were also pretty good. And I loved the location. My excursions were also beautiful and fun! The staff super friendly and nice and helpful!
My stay was incredible - whether laying in my hammock to the sound of rain, revelling in the feel of my skin post mud mask, or indulging in one of Jessica’s fantastic yoga classes, every day was the best one! I will be back and have already recommended the journey to others!
Another couple met us for 3 days/ 4 nights at BRR. The highlights of the stay were walking the highly maintained grounds to see beautiful flowers, trees, hummingbirds and butterflies, as well as soaking in the hot springs. Breakfast was included, featuring fresh fruit and either Costa Rican or American entrees. One morning was buffet with table service the other days. While our room was spacious, it had a damp/mildew smell as we entered that was difficult to disperse. We did report it to the front desk along with our in-room safe that didn’t work correctly. The front desk replaced the safe and some of bedding to reduce the odor. One night our next door neighbor had an extremely loud speaker-phone call with a relative. I called the front desk who tried calling them (naturally they didn’t pick up). It is a shame because most cabins/rooms have only one immediate neighbor. While breakfast was quite satisfactory, we thought lunch and dinner were just okay, over priced for what we got. We also tired of the nonstop love songs. The best deal on the menu is the Casado. We walked to nearby restaurants for variety. …
We were hoping to get a local experience and we definitely received it. The daily yoga was awesome! Zip line was exciting and was led safely and professionally. We got to see monkeys, sloths and Toucans. The food was great and the service excellent. They cleaned the pools , completely draining them and power washing them. The Spa was awesome too. The only negative is There were no more Peacocks, the Gym is old and doesn’t have a straight bench, and there are tiny ants in the bathrooms so don’t have food in your room. You are truly in the jungle so please accept that there will be bugs. The floral around your private cabin is impressive. We did the Dino Park so the grandkids could see photos, but it was a great time for us too.
The most majestic resort that we stayed at while in CR. We are a family of four with teenagers and we enjoyed this resort fully during our short stay over Christmas. From the beautiful flora & fauna, to sunset at the lake with so many birds and ducks, to the wonderful staff and can’t forget the hot springs, the butterflies and hummingbirds, it’s just magical! This place is such a wonderful gem. There are hammocks on your porch, the cabin is spacious, everything is very well maintained and clean. They really have a little bit of everything including yoga twice a day! Everyone who we encountered who works there were very nice and accommodating. We loved our stay.
Wonderful place with amazing restaurant and great activities. Great location to relax for few days after exploring Costa Rica for 2 weeks. Make sure you drive SUV to get there, as last 20km of roads are not sedan's friendly.
A beautiful paradise. Quiet and relaxing. Morning yoga and meditation in an extraordinary environment with waterfalls and an abundance of nature was a great way to start the day. Food was great with impeccable service. Rooms are large and clean. People were very friendly and helpful. Lots of fun and adventurous offsite activities to choose from. Had a wonderful time.
We booked this place to try staying in the rainforest instead of at the beach. It’s definitely out and away from the rest of the world, which honestly was cool. You definitely need an SUV to get out there. AC in the villas worked great and we Loved the chairs and hammock on the front porch. The place is charming, clean, staff is very friendly. The hot spring pools are really neat. The gym is small and the treadmill was broke, but you can get a workout in. The restaurant is decent, tiki bar had nice beverages. Again, the staff is great and if you want to be away, this is the place. One thing I wouldn’t recommend is their excursion to Cathedral Falls. We thought this was like a walk on a trail out to the falls and back. It was a walk through a muddy field with barbed wire on one side and an electric wire on the other. Our sneakers were covered in mud after 5 minutes. We stopped after 20 minutes and turned back. Honestly, I enjoyed the place. 2 nights is long enough to see and do everything there, at least for me it was.…
