This was an outstanding visit from start to finish. The staff made it a worry free experience from me starting with an airport pick up - that was simple, easy to find, and safe. Mamo, THANK YOU! From the moment I arrived, I knew it would be exactly what I expected from the photos and reviews I saw online. The property is phenomenal. If you so choose, you can be entertained on-sight with the tours and amenities, you never have to leave! But if you do, the concierge made great recommendations and helped me to find the best way to get to my destination (Mistico Park - I highly recommend). The best part about a visit here are the people. They were genuinely invested in taking care of all of your needs and assuring you have a wonderful time. As a solo traveler, and there for a special birthday occasion, everyone went above and beyond to make sure I had a vacation to remember. They even sang happy birthday at dinner! For anyone like me, ready for an adventure, but a little jumpy in nature, the first night took some adjusting. But you'll find the right temperature for you in the room , learn to keep the door closed to keep the nature outdoors, and just enjoy the beauty of being in a rainforest! Be sure to pack a flashlight for leaving your room in the evening. If you get car sick, note that from San Jose it is about a 2.5 hour drive (longer in traffic) with lots of twists and turns. Don't try to drive yourself! All in all, the most outstanding visit to Costa Rica.

Great place off the grid
This place was awesome. Super remote but also super clean, safe, and fun. Cabins were maintained and clean. The on-site restaurants were great. It’s 30 minutes from anywhere so plan on spending time on the property.

Absolutely beautiful property. Thoroughly enjoyed the private bungalow. We did a morning tour around the property and saw Toucans, several other birds, and a group of howler monkeys. The foliage and hot springs were so beautiful. Words don’t do Justice on how pleased I was with the bungalow and environment. Also, they had an expresso machine in the rooms and was the best morning coffee.

We arrived quite late, due to a flight delay. We were afraid we wouldn’t be able to get in, however, when we arrived, the receptionist welcomed us and provided a nice tour of the grounds. The staff is so kind, knowledgeable and welcoming, the food is amazing, the room is perfect, the grounds are beautiful. We can’t say enough good things about this place! If you have the opportunity to stay here, definitely take it! It’s family friendly while also providing opportunities for couples seeking a romantic getaway.
