Probably one of the top 5 hotels I have stayed at in the WORLD.
The design of the hotel, immersed in nature, is just so lovely. The hotel grounds is just unbelievably breathtaking--from the viewing deck, to the natural thermal pools, to the hotel pools. The canyon adventure is special, it's not just a regular zipline course. The staff members were all welcoming.
A real life Shangri-La
Rio Perdido has so many extraordinary things about it that you really need to stay here for several days to see and experience everything. We have been here 4 nights and we could easily stay longer and still do different things every day. Most exceptional resorts have 1 or 2 amazing features - Rio Perdido has almost too many to count. The thermal river with naturally made pools you can soak in while under the jungle canopy, yoga on a platform overlooking the canyon, the kindest and most genuinely friendly staff, the most thrilling zip line adventure we have ever been on, delicious food made to order that was very reasonably priced, a swim up bar with water warm thermal water, hiking trails that branch out from the resort, monkeys that come and visit the pool area every afternoon to eat the flowers . . This place is something else. It should NOT be missed. We literally cannot wait to come back next year.
It was a life-changing trip
As we were walking down a staircase to the dining room this morning for breakfast I experienced a true sense of Being Home. Not once did I feel as if I was in a hotel (we don't like hotels), not that we weren’t attended to or cared for. At Rio Perdido I felt that I authentically belonged right there. Your staff feels like family.
El mejor hotel de nuestro viaje con diferencia! Aparte de ser un entorno muy especial en el que está situado, el hotel está ideado por y para agradar al cliente. Cuidan absolutamente cualquier detalle y se esmeran porque la estancia alli sea única. Las habitaciones son impresionantes, la calidad de la comida inmejorable. Y, a destacar por si fuera poco, el servicio es la perfecta combinacion de amabilidad, educación, servicio y esmero por agradar al cliente. No les doy un diez, le doy un veinte al personal que trabaja en el hotel porque es lo que realmente se merecen.
Perfect for a 3-4 day get away!
Stunning property with incredible staff. Unlike anything I have seen before. The views from the restaurant are amazing and the poolside bar is a thing of beauty. Food was excellent and the zipline, hiking and tubing very nice. Everyone that we met (staff & guests) were very nice, can't recommend it highly enough.
Great Experience, Amazing Hotel and Staff
We decided to extend our stay in Costa Rica for four days this past December, and ended up booking at Rio Perdido. The rooms are great, each nestled into the jungle, with plenty of privacy, and very well designed and appointed. The grounds and amenities are close to perfect, with great pools and hot springs. And if you want to do something more natural than the pools, you can hike to the river and swim in the thermal springs, which are really beautiful. We did yoga every morning, which was great, zip lines on the property, the spa, and had great meals throughout the stay. The best thing about the hotel is the staff, however. Without exception everyone was friendly, attentive and really seemed to enjoy being there. We have stayed a lot of places across the globe and this is one of the best, and one of the best values.
Amazing time here!!
My family of 5 stayed here during our week long trip to Costa Rica. This way by far our favorite hotel for many reasons. First off the hotel itself is ascetically gorgeous! Our room was a beautiful bungalow amidst the trees that included a porch and hammock. The beds were so soft, the bath products they provided were wonderful as well. The thermal river and thermal pools was what I will remember the most. So so relaxing and fun to be in warm natural spring water with monkey's playing in the trees above you! The food was farm to table, great presentation and delightful. The staff went above and beyond!
An experience like no other!
We have visited many hot springs around the world but having the entire river as a giant hot spring was just amazing!
The rooms are beautiful with chair hammocks at the front deck overlooking forest. Each are far enough away to feel you have total privacy. Pools and bar: the first pool with waterfalls is the hottest and you see many hummingbirds in the trees above, the middle pool is the coolest, the third pool is perfect with swim up bar. You can order food, cocktails, craft beer or wine from the restaurant.
