Guest reviews for Gaia Hotel And Reserve - Adults Only

5 out of 5

Class act!

This place was fantastic - impeccable staff. The food is unbelievably good. We had almost everything on the menu and the deserts are insane. There's a band that plays every night - they sing in Spanish and English - everything from Tangos to Top 40 - really fun. One night, there was an incredible opera singer who performed three songs in 3 languages (I think she was staying there too)! The owners walk around to every table at breakfast and dinner to introduce themselves and see if there's anything you need - very cool. It's also designed with an eco-conscious sensibility. The owners said they are a carbon-neutral business - the oxygen produced by the rainforest on their land offsets their carbon footprint, etc. Not to mention the 1-hour long walk you can take through the rainforest on the property is wonderful. All said, we had the best time here and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be able to focus on the fun. We'll be back for sure.

Best of the Best!

What a delightful hotel. Pure luxury in a jungle environment. They saw to our every need including having our own valet. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. You must eat at their restaurant, easily the best in Manuel Antonio. We highly recommend staying at Gaia.
