Pictures of this hotel do not do it justice! Our "suite" was in fact a small house with gorgeous floor to ceiling windows so you could feel at one with nature. It was incredible. Our host (Ramiro) went above and beyond to take care of us - he moved up our breakfast an hour early and served as our taxi service to the Poas volcano - free of charge. The views from the hotel and the landscape was truly gorgeous. We loved it. We would have liked a little more guidance about the temperature differences between Poasito and the other two regions we visited. It was definitely colder than we imagined!
We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of our trip. Beautiful property. Lovely views. We took private transport from the airport to this hotel on our first night and arrived rather late. (late flight) It is a bit isolated so it is best to have your own transportation - or schedule a tour. Hotel was able to get us a driver to take us around but it was a close call and we were sorry we did not have our own rental car. If you have your own car - we highly reccommend.
