Fodor's Review

The setting here is idyllic: massive trees shade the wooden buildings and lawns, the Río Chiriquí Viejo is a stone's toss away, and everything is surrounded by dense forest. Rooms have hardwood floors, flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, big windows, and porches with hammocks or plastic chairs and tables. Suites are bigger and brighter and sleep up to eight people; those up the hill offer more privacy and nicer views. The vast property includes 400 acres of forest, part of which can be explored on a 2-km hiking trail, and the list of activities includes mountain biking, horseback riding, river tubing, fishing, and a zip-line canopy tour. Spa treatments are reasonably priced. The restaurant ($–$$) serves Italian food, including pizza and fresh trout prepared several ways. The hotel offers many Web-only promotions.
