Tuck up in the mountain overlooking exquisite scenery. Beautiful accommodations. Stayed in the garden room and couldn't be happier. No stairs to climb like many of the other rooms. Very quiet. Easy to get to elevator to restaurant...or quick walk to the pool area. The pool was extraordinary. Two infinity pools connected by a water fall. Saw a mother and...

What can I say? Amazing experience. We found the place on Trip Advisor and it was about spot-on when it came to the service. What didn't make sense was the negative reviews on this place. Doesn't make sense. This place was so fantastic. I already recommended it to several people. We feel like a part of the family here. From...

The setting is spectacular. The facilities are modern, clean, and comfortable. But what really set Gaia apart was the exceptional service we received from the moment we set foot on the property. Krishne, our personal concierge, not only helped us at our checkin, but he checked in with us at various times throughout our stay, including dropping by when he...

Stayed here for three nights as part of a tour of Costa Rica. Five star rooms with Jacuzzi as standard. The restaurant has panoramic views of the San Antonio hills, and the quality of food was second to none on the whole trip, with Costa Rican fish and meat dishes a speciality. The pool is multi level infinity style with...

We went to Gaia for our anniversary and right from our arrival, service was amazing! A golf car drove us up to the hotel and our personal concierge welcomed us very warmly and professionally, with a welcome cocktail. To our delight and surprise, we were upgraded to a beautiful suite with a stunning view over the rainforest and the ocean!...

My partner and I had two nights at Gaia and it was absolutely amazing. The staff was genuine and kind, making sure that we were taken care of including dinners and tours.
