Stayed en famille five nights July 2017. Wonderful quiet spot about 5 hours' drive from San Jose airport. Villas are large and welcoming - large windows and effective aircon. Lots of stairs so probably not for the frail. Food not much better than average for Costa Rica but priced as though it is (i.e. don't come here for the food, hence I'd give it 4 rather than 5/5) but breakfasts are excellent.
If I say the hotel has an appealing, slightly ramshackle air this isn't meant as a criticism. Everything works, the rooms have wifi and the staff are delightful. It has character. Gym is smallish but at least it's there. Lots of animals; howler monkeys in the jungle next door to the hotel; scarlet macaws and iguanas on the terrace outside the breakfast buffet; an armadillo crossed our villa lawn most days at 4pm sharp. The children loved it. Worth a return visit.
