Hotel Villa Lapas Review

These stucco rooms within a tranquil rain-forest preserve are nothing special, but they have white tile floors, hardwood ceilings, and large baths and are a great escape for nature lovers. The resort is far from other hotels (and the beach) but has on-site entertainment to keep you busy, such as a large-screen television, a swimming pool, game room, and a canopy tour on the property. You can follow the river flowing through the protected forest for a pleasant hike and cross a suspension bridge to reach a small replica of a Costa Rican colonial village with a restaurant, cantina, church, and gift shops. This place gets a bit chaotic when cruise ship passengers visit several times per week for tours. An all-inclusive meal plan is available, but you're better off eating your lunch and dinner elsewhere.
