What I loved about this hotel is that I could enjoy the cool mountain weather as I stayed in a room with a decoration made out of wood, giving a warm feel to it.

I also got the opportunity to visit the park even before it opened and I must say that this park is wonderful. I got to see beautiful wildlife such as  birds, monkeys and colorful frogs. To visit the park the hotel offers great guided hiking tours.

This place is absolutely gorgeous my family and I had a great experience here. What I loved the most was the fact that we could enjoy the luxury and comfort of the hotel while being surrounded by nature. Since I visited it I have recommend it to all of my friends, now I recommend it to you.

Here’s what people have to say about them and if you don’t believe them, I dare you to try it!

The trip up to the gardens was long and bumpy but mostly due to the damage from the earthquake. They are working very hard at getting back up to par though.

The place is beautiful and there are many things to do there: Butterfly garden, hummingbirds, tropical birds, frogs, snakes, sloths, big cats, waterfalls, and a restaurant.

The toucans will eat out of your hand, and the butterflies and hummingbirds get very close. Lunch was very good and the rice pudding was out of this world amazing. The trek down to the waterfall is fine, but the trek back up! What a workout! It’s worth it though because they are very beautiful. Definitely a great place for kids. It has a bit of a themepark feel to it, but it was still fun.

Check out the bathroom sinks. They’re pretty cool.
A little pricey though, it came to $48 US including lunch.


This was easily the most amazingly beautiful site I have ever seen! The waterfalls were beyond compare!! And if that weren’t enough, there was also a fabulous butterfly garden, where butterflies would frequently land one’s hand — much to the delight of my small children. There was also a hummingbird garden, where my kids were able to get inches away from the hummingbirds, who were clearly used to people. I wish I could have stayed there the entire day.
