8/10 Very good

Great resort with amazing views and great staff , definitely will visit again .

10/10 Exceptional

Amazing property, very private and limited number of people at the resort which was nice. Having your own dipping pool was great. You were able to hear and see the howler monkeys from your room which was cool. Staff were friendly and super helpful with all needs. The property is close to town with lots of restaurants to choose from. The town is not as commercialised as Tamarindo which makes it better. The area has lovely beaches (Santa Teresa) - and every sunset was amazing! Would recommend a good car (4WD or SUV) as driveway/road to property is steep and a mixture of broken concrete and gravel. If you can get a shuttle to the area, i would recommend that and then hire a quad bike at the property or in town (its around 70-85$ per day).

The room was extraordinary. Beautiful view and very private pool, also with great view. It was in the least expensive room category but was likely the most fantastic room in which we have ever stayed. Lots of beautiful birds and surprisingly nice monkeys, squirrels, iguanas, and even an anteater visited our property. We would return in a heartbeat.

Our room was amazing. Awesome view, comfortable, and luxurious. We loved the dipping pool and all the places to sit and lounge. The staff was great! Karen arranged rides, rentals, directions, suggestions, reservations and was so friendly and efficient in caring for our needs. Andy, Jodie and Alfredo were great waiters but so much more. Highly recommend!

Absolutely awesome having a private plunge pool! Staff was so friendly and helpful. We consider them our friends by the time we left. Loved that it was adults only. Nothing worse than sitting down to dinner with a kid screaming next to you. Food was good. Only negative was the portions were small. Fabulous massage girls will give in room service. Definitely recommend this place!!

A perfect place to stay in Malpais!
Gorgeous place with a wonderful staff. This felt like a very personalized experience, staying in a stand-alone bungalow with a beautiful view, and the restaurant was excellent.
