Beautiful place!

Pros: The staff was awesome.
Cons: New mattresses and pillows badly needed.
Location: Lots of things to do with the National Park right there.
This place is quite the ride to get there...roads extremely rough but once you get there it is beautiful. Our only complaint is maybe charge a little more and buy some decent pillows. The pillows were hard and lumpy and the mattresses were really hard also.

Remote luxury!

Pros: Free breakfast
This hotel is located aprox 4-5 hours from San Jose. The trip there is worth it, not only because of the lovely accomodations, but because you can walk into the jungle and visit Rio CEleste. A chemical reaction combining 2 rivers which each bring calcium and sulfur from the nearby volcano makes water a gorgeous light blue color. Hike into the mountain in and out takes about 4 hours. Be prepared to come out muddy and tired but exhilarated!
