Beautiful gardens and stunning views
We spent our last night in Costa Rica here, and it was a great place to wind down. The gardens were beautiful with plenty of space to sit and enjoy the amazing views of the Central Valley. Our room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. The reception staff were very helpful recommending us a restaurant and refilling our water. We had a good lunch in the restaurant on the day we arrived and a nice enough breakfast the following morning.
