Beautiful, spacious rooms. The property landscaping was gorgeous and I love that you can walk to see the Rio Celeste river on the property via a short trail. I like that the property had all the amenities of a large resort (pool, jacuzzi, restaurant, game room) but was a small resort. Very family friendly.

Beautifully rainforest hotel
This hotel is unique. It offers a true rainforest experience with some trails for walking to the river Celeste and around the area. The grounds as well as the casitas are all very well maintained. But I reserve the most praise for the staff and owner. When my wife left her phone in the van bringing us to the resort the staff went out of their way to help retrieve it. Even going so far that the manager made arrangements to pick the phone up at a Liberia hotel for us so we didn’t have to pay for a taxi to bring it to us. This is just 1 example of the totally friendly and helpful staff. The pool and spa tubs were also clean comfortable, and inviting. Definitely a very good choice to stay in the rainforest
