“Best Vacation Ever”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

My husband and I just got back from Los Altos De Eros and we already are planning our return. From the moment we arrived at the airport and were greeted by our driver, Francisco who then offered us a beer, our trip was amazing. The staff at Los Altos de Eros made our stay wonderful. From the wonderful ladies that work the front desk and helped us book every excursion we needed, to the amazing ladies in the kitchen, to the drivers who brought us to wherever we needed to go, and to Antonio who not only was a driver but also a handy man and the baker of the best chocolate croissants we have ever had, the staff is first rate!

In terms of the food, it was truly amazing. While we liked everything made for us, we were addicted to the mango smoothies with orange juice as well as the home made guacamole and fresh tortilla chips! My husband and I did the cooking class during our stay and we would highly recommend it!

My husband and I were lucky to stay in the Eros Suite for our six night stay. The suite was very spacious and we had our own balcony from which we loved watching the sun set.

When coming to Los altos, I was not sure what to think about having meals with all the other guests. However, this was one of the best parts of our trip. All the people we met were great and we spent quite a few late nights sitting at the large dinner table really getting to know one another.

While we loved the hotel, our most favorite aspect of it was Coco, the resort's chocolate lab. Coco is an extremely friendly and well behaved dog that loves to have his belly rubbed. On our last morning at Los Altos, my husband and I took Coco for a 5km hike around the grounds. Coco also decided to visit us during our sunset dinner and massage. We fell in love with Coco and I think if we were able to, we would have taken him home with us!

Overall, we would highly recommend staying at Los Altos de Eros. From the friendly staff, to the amazing food, to the beautiful views, to Coco, it is truly a place not to miss!

Spent the day at the spa and it was the best spa experience I ever had! The view is breathtaking and the treatments are first class. The meal and services were fabulous. I will definitely be back on my next trip to Costa Rica.

There are not enough superlatives to describe this place. We were greeted by an amazing, efficient, friendly staff. The location, on top of a small mountain, is beautiful. You can see the ocean shimmering in the distance. The building is like a very high class B&B - only five rooms grouped around a fabulous pool. Our room was very comfortably furnished, air conditioned and very pleasant. The meals - three a day - were taken with the other guests, which was delightful as we had a friendly group. The food was plentiful, delicious and varied and all cooked in the kitchen by an amazing staff. We have stayed at remote places in Costa Rica before but were never given all the extras that Los Altos gives with the cost of your room. There was coffee, tea, cold water, wine, beer, soft drinks and freshly baked cookies offered at no cost all day every day. If you wanted a ride into town or the beach, there was no cost added. They even did personal laundry at no charge. We had a couples massage and a romantic dinner in the spa. The massage was wonderful and the food delicious with more wine than we could drink. It was a delightful evening and I am not a fan of massages. This is a beautiful, peaceful place to reconnect with your significant other and to have a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Our Room #3 has a queen sized bed but there are king-sized beds in other rooms

This was our second trip to Los Altos and will not be our last. This year we booked the Eros Suite for our entire stay and enticed our British friends to join us for the week. It was everything we remembered from last year and more. We were greeted by the lovely staff including Francisco who picked us up in LIberia, Tatiana, Yanina and Hania who took care of our every need each day and Antonio who drove us to the beach and made fabulous pastries each day! The amazing women who cook are truly remarkable. They turn out fresh, interesting and delicious meals and always remember how you like your coffee. I started my day with the 5.5 kilometer loop trail and one day was accompanied by the lovely Coco, Los Altos' gorgeous chocolate lab. Then I did yoga with Amy in the dreamy yoga studio, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by tropical breezes, birds and the occasional monkey. The trips to Avellanas Beach were a lovely distraction on the days we didn't just lounge by the pool or take advantage of the soothing and professional spa treatments. We can't wait to be back next year!

Room Tip: All five rooms are lovely but the Eros Suite is a real treat with a private balcony for watching the...

We spent our honeymoon at Los Altos over the course of nine days. The staff is incredibly friendly and eager to answer even the smallest need. The hotel itself is gorgeous and provides a very intimate and highly personalized experience. The food was top notch and I can honestly say we never had a bad meal during our stay. Overall, I was very impressed with our experience with only one exception.

On our second to last night we were eating dinner with the other guests when the owner appeared and entered the conversation. He then insulted my wife and some of the other guests with what I felt was very rude and inappropriate behavior. I expected a higher level of professionalism from someone who owns and manages such an amazing resort. This is probably an unusual occurrence but I feel compelled to share it. Aside from his behavior I would strongly recommend this resort.
