We haqve stayed at Villas Gaia several times. This time was the first time in about 6 years. We were very disappointed to see that the place was in such bad shape. Very sad!
The internet did not work most of the time and we had to change cabins because the bed was overed with termites when we came back in the the afternoon.

I stayed here with my daughter and two granddaughters (ages 7 and 10) in February. We had booked two nights but due to the poor quality of the hotel we stayed only one night, and the management refused to refund our payment. Here were our issues: of the "three-room suite"--only one room had air-conditioning--and it had moldy and musky air quality. The other rooms had ceiling fans that did not work and half of the room lights did not turn on--which made the rooms hot and unsafe (dark and unable to see). The pillows and sheets were frayed and old. The shower in the bath barely turned on. Most of the lights on the path to the pool were not lit (bulbs burned out) Breakfast was ok. The walkway to the beach was overgrown (or washed away) and we unable to use it, The grounds and nature were pleasant. It seemed that if the property had been maintained it might have been pleasant in its day years ago--but certainly not now.

We had a lovely cabina --- not big or fancy, but it had a very warm feel to it and it was clean. There were sliding doors and lots of window so there was a very open feel to it. The color scheme of the room was very nice and added to the airiness. We were surrounded by a tropical garden and not far from the pool, Breakfast was included -- the food was good. We found the staff to be helpful and friendly. We enjoyed sitting on our porch. There was a great view of the ocean from the pool. We liked it and would stay here again.

The Hotel Gaia consists of about a dozen cabins set in tropical gardens. The rooms are basic but adequate. Our room was quite dark because it faced into the forest. A few extra lights would have been an improvement.

The shower soap dispenser was nearly empty and the toilet paper dispenser failed in the night, which was very awkward.

The wifi was weak and slow.

The pool was very nice and breakfast was served on the adjacent patio, making for a lovely start to the day.

With attention to a few details, this place would be first class.

Stopped on the way through on the way to Drakes Bay. There isn't a great choice of places to stay in this area, so we booked despite mixed reviews.
The room we were offered was dirty, dark, had the fan torn out, no safe, a/c noisy and not at all effective: even with windows open the noise from the road through the night was constant and intrusive. (Possibly the rooms higher up overlooking the pool and towards the ocean might be better). Breakfast was adequate, and the reason for giving the place two stars was that the restaurant was fine, with reasonably priced, good and freshly cooked food.
Overall impression is that this place is becoming run down and needs some upgrading. It was the most disappointing place we stayed in an extended tour of CR. Glad we didn't stay longer.
