These rooms overlooking the misty forests of La Paz Waterfall Gardens seem like something out of the Lord of the Rings, with their curved, clay-stucco walls, hardwood floors, stone fireplaces, four-poster beds made of varnished logs, and grottolike bathrooms with private waterfalls. As if the bathrooms, with two showers, a whirlpool tub, and private tropical garden weren't enough, you can soak in your second whirlpool tub on a porch with a cloud-forest view. Being able to explore the Waterfall Gardens before they open and after they close is another perk; room rates include admission. The cuisine here is a couple of notches below the accommodations.

From the moment we stepped into the reception area we were in heaven. The staff was exceptionally nice to my kids, the room was fabulous, the waterfall gardens were awesome, I just can't say enough! My hubby and I plan on going back....solo!
