Fodor's Review

Comfortable accommodations at this coffee farm feel and look like a home and have fabulous vistas— most have balconies, and those on the corners of the second floor have curved windows offering panoramic views. A bungalow near the pool is available by the week. Breakfast, which includes homegrown coffee roasted on the premises, is served on the back garden patio. The fact that it lies just 25 minutes from the airport—no farther away than staying in San José—makes

this a tranquil place to begin or end a Costa Rica trip.

Great food, service, ambience and view

Couldn't have been more impressed!, we were treated to a fabulous on-site restaurant, fantastic friendly service, a room with an amazing view, cool temperatures and charming atmosphere. I put this among the best places to stay in Costa Rica!
