    Owner and staff team are helpful, very welcomming and trying to help you with every single metter you have (including usage of hotel PC and fixing the car front plate we almost lost in the river). Amazing people and really breathtaking nature!

    This place is really lost in paradise-we had to cross the river by car (no bridge), but it was fine challenge due to the help of locals.

    A well maintained garden, nice pool, quiet place, very friendly staff.

    Bit too far away from Samara. When the river is too high (main road goes through the river) it will take you even longer. The room we booked for 2 nights was not cleaned but was resolved best possible by moving us to another vacant room (twice).

    The garden is really wonderful and the kids loved playing in the pool after a day at the beach. Unfortunately we had no water the day we arrived but the owner was fully on top of this to get it fixed. She kept us well informed and provided free bottled drinking water as well as access to another accommodation for shower. All in all we didn't have much trouble with it and it surely adds to the experience of Costa Rica :-)

    The pool cocktail bar was very nice yet could have stayed open longer (closed at 19:00). It wasn't the best breakfast we had in Costa Rica, though service was nice.

    A very unique hotel. It consists of cottages and walking paths on a large plot of well landscaped land, with a nice pool. The breakfast was very good. It was nice to sit by the pool and relax with greenery and gardens around. The owners are French, and bought the hotel in 2017. They are friendly, nice to talk to, and have done and excellent job.

    The off-road drive to the hotel was a bit long. There are two separate roads from the hotel to the town of Samara. The shorter road was not available. It runs over a creek bed, which is dry during the dry season. But any rain and the creek is not passable. So we had to go the long way around, which is a dirt road with a bridge over the creek. Rather than 2 miles to town, it was more like 5 miles. We had an SUV so it was not too bad. But if you have a small car, that 5 mile dirt road can be a bit long.
