The hotel now offers 32 deluxe fully equipped rooms, a restaurant with the best fusion of native and foreign cuisine, a beautiful heated swimming pool, jacuzzi wet bar, and gardens full of native flowers, butterflies and hummingbirds.

Quote from the owner:
“We thank God for the circumstances that made us take this decision. Now we know dreams come true and all our efforts have been absolutely worth it."
The perfect combination of natural beauty and interesting people. As a matter of fact this area is almost the perfect model for nature and people coexisting harmoniously.
In the early 1950s a small group of Quaker dairy farmers from the US settled on the mountain. The Quakers, with their peaceful ways and respect for the environment, were a perfect match for the hard working, gentle Costa Ricans already living here. Since that time, several reserves have been founded where you can walk for hours in the splendor of the cloudforest.Many artists, researchers and educators either make their homes here or are frequent visitors. Several alternative schools, an institute for cloudforest education, a woman's arts cooperative, and a yearly concert series illustrate the cultural experience awaiting you here.
