Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Quelitales

Orosi, Cartago, 30204, Costa Rica Fodor's Choice

For quiet, get-away-from-it-all seclusion, this eco-friendly lodging can't be beat. Six bungalows—rustic on the outside but sparkling and modern on the inside—are scattered throughout the wooded property. All contain hardwood floors, cheery furnishings, minibars, and local art accents. Two of the six units have indoor-outdoor hot showers; for two others, outdoor is the sole option, wonderfully refreshing in the heat of March and April, but a bit bracing during the cooler September–December months. Large windows in the restaurant offer superb views of the forest and a small lake. The restaurant makes use of products from the hotel's own orchard and gardens as well as meat and produce from area farmers.
