Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wir waren zum zweiten Mal in Quinta Heliconia. Es ist ein wunderbarer Platz und Maite eine hervorragende, hilfsbereite und liebenswerte Gastgeberin; nicht zu vergessen ihre ebenso nette und freundliche Mitarbeiterin Denia. Das Frühstück lässt an nichts fehlen; immer frisches Obst und frische Smoothies. Die Zimmer sind sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sauber. Wir haben die Tage genossen und sagen Danke!

My wife and I stayed at Quinta Heliconia last December, just before Christmas. This was our fifth Costa trip, so we’ve been to quite a few different hotels, B&Bs and cabañas over the years; and I can now say, without reservation, that this was, by far, the best place we've stayed, on any of our vacations here! As we were spending just a single week in CR this time, we only had two nights at Quinta Heliconia – this made me very sad, because I could have gladly have stayed the whole week. Describing Quinta Heliconia is a bit of a challenge for me – it is such a lovely place, it is hard to know where to start. The house itself Is large and attractive, and gives the appearance of being brand-new, although I know it has been in operation as a B & B for several years now. The room we were assigned was very spacious, with a very large bed; our suite also included a large private bath and combination sitting room/sunporch. The room (and the whole property, for that matter) was very private, which is something you would never get in one of the oceanfront hotels down in Dominical or Quepos. Out in front of the house, there is a good sized swimming pool, which is very clean, although I found it somewhat too warm (but then, being Canadian, I have perhaps not your typical idea of what “too warm” means). The pool has a large deck all around it, and because the house is built on top of a slope, this afforded us a gorgeous view over the surrounding tropical forest. And what a forest it is! The house sits in the middle of several hectares of private, nearly-pristine tropical woods. For us, being nature lovers and birdwatchers, the environment around any place we stay are always more important than the building itself, wonderful though it may be. For us, Quinta Heliconia is a special kind of heaven – the grounds are just chock-full of interesting birds. There’s also an excellent trail system, and we spent almost all our time (when we weren’t sleeping) hiking on it, or waiting in the garden to photograph the birdlife. This included toucans, crested guans, hummingbirds, and the (normally very elusive) great curassow – and that’s just what we saw from the pool deck! A hike in the forest turned up many more species, such as manakins, antbirds, and tanagers. Many species of butterfly, including the fabulous blue morpho, were easily found on the trails as well. I have, as I said, been around Costa Rica a bit, so I know whereof I speak – it is like having our own private national park for two days. The food for breakfast is varied, plentiful, and always very fresh; It is also beautifully presented. It is abundantly clear that the management really puts a lot of care into all aspects of the clients’ enjoyment of their stay. Which brings me finally, to the owner, Maïte – she is the real key to it all. She is the best-ever hostess, always keeping an eye on everything, ready to help in any way, never intrusive. Her motto is “I am here if you need me; when you don’t, I am gone”. Oh, if only every hotelier and B&B owner all over the world could just learn to live by that!

Dit is zo'n geweldige plek dat ik hem bijna niet prijs zou willen geven op deze website. De eigenaresse "Maite" is een heel bijzondere en gastvrije vrouw. Midden in de natuur en tussen de dieren beleeft u een avontuur op een locatie welke u nooit van uw leven meer zult vergeten. De locatie is niet te vinden, de eigenaresse komt u na een telefoontje dan ook ophalen bij het kerkje in het dorpje Platanillo.
