I wish we had booked for multiple days. Amazing staff esp Joge. She helped plan out our stay and all the local tours and activities well in advance. Property it self is amazing and view of Arenal volcano from our villa was breath taking (even at night ). Highly recommend this to one and all. In room dining food quality was amazing and so were all the amenities in the villa.

Loved everything about this destination. The staff are friendly and professional. Views from our room were spectacular. This was our second stay. First time was too short at 3 days. This time we stayed for 7 days. Perfect place to relax, recharge and watch wildlife. We’ve already decided to return in a few years.
