Our stay at Jungle Roost was an amazing experience. The house is incredibly well appointed and beautifully decorated. We had daily visits from monkeys ... the howlers sure make a great alarm clock!
Luis, the house manager, is an absolute god send. We opted not to rent a car and Luis arranged taxis, excursions, pizza delivery the night we arrived and even a cooler of drinks at the beach. He really made our trip a success.
I will say the “short walk to the beach” is down (and eventually back up) a very steep hill, but the beach itself is gorgeous with big waves and not too crowded.
Jungle Roost was a perfect stay for our crew (2 adults and 3 kids ages 10, 10 and 6).
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Serenidad. It’s a fabulous home with beautiful views of the rainforest, located in a quite neighborhood off the main road, very private yet close to restaurants, fun bars and the beach. Lara (Concierge) was very helpful and responded immediately to all of our requests. We used private chef’s services - Alejandro is an amazing chef and prepared very delicious customized meals for us. Everything in the house is sparkling clean, fresh and seemed been recently upgraded. The housekeepers took care of us like their own family (such beautiful Costa Rican culture!). We love all space and privacy with the bedroom layout and will definitely bring our entire family next year. All bedrooms are very private especially the expansive master suite on the first floor with its own TV, armchairs, and sliding glass doors opening to the deck. We particularly loved the outside deck and balconies with comfortable seating and surrounded by nature. We spent a lot of time watching and listening to the birds. We spotted a family of monkeys close to the house and had an evening visit from a family of shy raccoons! Such great memories, can’t wait to come back.
