눉The hotel is located 5 minute sail further north of Tortuguero village - so if you take the boat from La Pavona - you only reach the village of Tortuguero. From there free shuttle of the hotel is NOT always offered to its guests (shuttles on behalf of the hotel only operate at very regular hours) - so you nees to take a taxi boat for extra 10 dollars or so.
Furthermore, the restaurant - while offering great breakfast, their lunch and dinner are very fancy and pricey, and you dont have other options for simpler meals. They do have snacks menu as well, but even there the meals are pricey and quite small.
눇1. The gorgeous ambiance at the canal, with fantastic pool overlooking the canal and vegetation.
2. The surrounding gardens and jungles - howler monkeys are your alarm clock!
3. The breakfast was superb as well as the natural juice they seeved.
4. The tours offered by this hotel were of very high level with very good, friendly and informative guides!
5. This hotel contributes back to the society and environment it resides in: it runs a program of English teaching at the nearby village, in a very organized matter with a certified teacher, and guests willing to participate can join the class with the teacher and provide a one hour lesson. We participated in that program and it surely enriched our experience!
