The setting is truly lovely, tucked away in a secluded valley. The rooms have lovely views and the grounds have wonderful flowers at every turn. Be prepared, it can be quit chilly this high up in the mountains.
The staff were very attentive to this and had the fireplaces lit and brought hot water bottles for the beds each night.
The trails are well maintained and you have the ability to see many types of birds. It seems best suited for those who truly love birds and want to see them.
The highlight, of course, is the chance to see the resplendent quetzal. The guides are quite knowledgeable about where you might see them and are excellent at finding them. We were fortunate to see both the female and the male quetzal and even got to witness the male doing a display to mark his territory.
As others note, you will not be alone at the quetzal viewing sights, but seeing these magnificent creatures makes up for the small crowds you may have to endure.
The food is good, though not overly varied, and served buffet style. If I could make one recommendation, it would be to upscale the food just a bit and this would make a great destination even better.
