Everything was top quality and the staff is awesome! What an unforgettable experience! We are going back for sure!!!

Seclusion. Intimacy. Delish food (biggest surprise). Highest marks. The beach is intimate though small with dark sand. Gwon (bartender) on the beach was super attentive to us. The two pools on site were serene and the butler service outstanding.

This hotel is on the high end of hotels in the Quepos, Manuel Antonio area. It is very small and private. The infinity pools are incredible with swings around the pool. The hotel overlooks the jungle and ocean below. There are many monkeys that came to visit us right outside of our deck. The staff worked very hard and were friendly. The books last minute tours for us and the room service was great.
