    5/5 Excellent

    This was an amazing property down to the smallest details. The staff went above and beyond for you from the moment you arrived. Not speaking Spanish, the majority of the staff were bilingual and able to help me I would highly recommend this hotel.

    We enjoyed staying here very much. The staffs were so friendly we enjoyed talking to the bartender girl at the swimming pool. So close to the Rio Celeste waterfall. It’s hidden place and very quiet.

    Short & relaxing trip

    Stayed 2-nights with family & friends here. The resort has spacious and beautiful rooms with amazing views, trails for hiking, huge swimming pool, and Jacuzzi. Food at the restaurant was very good (but it was way too salty, so ask for "no salt" and it will be just right) and excellent desserts with great presentation! The hike to the waterfall was scenic and beautiful, but it is a strenuous hike with about 300 steps climb to the bottom to see the waterfall. Excellent service from staff. We asked the staff if something special can be done for my nieces who is celebrating their 21st birthday there. The housekeeping staff indeed decorated their beds beautifully with "Happy Birthday" message as a surprise. Because the resort is located in a rain forest, it is humid and rained on and off while we were there in August. Good thing the resort provides large umbrellas that you can borrow and use. The rooms have de-humidifier, air conditioning, fan, small coffee maker and mini fridge. Overall, a very memorable stay. If you can, highly recommend getting the meal and tour package in advance (you'll save some $).
