Fodor's Expert Review Los Altos de Eros Luxury Inn & Spa

14 km (8½ miles) southeast of Tamarindo, Cañafistula, Guanacaste, 50309, Costa Rica Fodor's Choice

This intimate adults-only inn is the place to be for honeymooning couples with enough money left over after the wedding to pamper themselves, or for stressed-out high achievers in need of some serious relaxation therapy. Rooms, with queen- or king-size beds, are elegant and comfortable, opening out onto a large pool with expansive views to the faraway ocean. The Eros honeymoon suite has a private terrace and Roman tub. But the main draw here is the spa, built into the side of a mountain and staffed by a team of professional therapists, offering such treatments as volcanic mud wraps, honey-cucumber-lime facials, papaya body polishes, and relaxing massages. Day spa packages are available for nonguests with gourmet lunch included. Evenings, you can take a free shuttle into Tamarindo, a bumpy 14-km (8½-mile) ride away, to experience the local dining scene. Other perks include cooking classes, an outdoor gym, international calls, airport transportation, and laundry service. Early-morning yoga classes and hikes around the steep 70-acre property keep you active.
