Gaia Hotel & Reserve in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

Crystal blue skies greet you, the cool breeze blowing in from the Pacific and over golden sand beaches, while the enchanting Gaia Hotel & Reserve emerges from the emerald rainforest. Nestled in central Costa Rica's coastal forests, near Manuel Antonio National Park, this property exudes luxury in harmony with nature. Bright, peaceful rooms greet you with abundant sunshine, designed to create a seamless flow between the modern comforts indoors and the natural splendor just outside. Gorgeous wood floors lead from serene bedrooms with plush king-sized beds, past stylish bathrooms offering enticing 2-person Jacuzzis, and out to a fabulous separate living room. Enjoy the use of your own home entertainment system as you relax on deep, comfortable couches, then step outside onto your expansive private balcony. As you breath in the crisp, fresh air, soak in the sun, and take in the unforgettable view, understand the true beauty of Costa Rica and the fabulous Gaia Hotel & Reserve.

Start your morning with a wonderful breakfast at La Luna, with spectacular views of the sunrise coast, then keep up your routine at the gym or pamper yourself with a visit to Terra Spa. With the waters warm, stretch out on the sun deck next to the 2-level waterfall pool, or make your way to the beach and find your perfect spot on the warm sands. Dive in to the waves to cool off, and spend the day kayaking, jet skiing, and surfing along the coast. Venture out on the open Pacific for an exciting day of deep sea sport fishing, or relax on the decks of a luxury yacht and sip champagne as you cruise into the horizon. Spend a day, or few, exploring the rainforest of Manuel Antonio National Park as you hike along stunningly beautiful trails. Discover some of the 346 species as you tour the park, listen to the enchanting tropical bird calls and sounds of the forest, and be amazed by some of the most amazing natural scenery in the world. After a full and exciting day in the forest or at sea, return to the hotel for a sunset dinner at La Luna before retiring to the plush comforts of your room. That night, as you gaze out over the rainforest, glittering under the stars, smile and imagine your next amazing day at Gaia Hotel & Reserve.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Gaia Hotel and Reserve. The price was terrific for excellent service and a lovely room. Every staff member we met was kind and inviting. I appreciated that our concierge went out of his way to schedule a chance to see the Macaws on the reserve since we weren't there at a time when a tour was available. Gaia sponsors a Macaw preservation program - consequently you will get the rare chance to see red macaws in their habitat. They don't make extra money from this program - but by staying at the hotel you indirectly help with these efforts. A pair of macaws circled around us as we waited for our shuttle to pick us up at the end of our stay - it was a beautiful sight. I highly recommend you let the hotel set you up with the guide Josue to see Manuel Antonio. He knows a lot about the animals you will see, but he is also very knowledgeable about Costa Rican history and great fun to talk to. He can even do spot on animal calls - and they answer back! We saw much larger groups in the reserve and I am sure they paid the same for what wound up being a private tour since no other guests signed up that morning. They even sent us pictures of our hike after it was all done. We wished we had come down a day earlier! PS Please note that the reserve can't be accessed except for a tour at 3pm Tu through Sun. I had pictured a chance to look around the reserve on our own, but that isn't an option due to the Macaw program and for safety reasons. I had pictured this as part of my stay so was disappointed. It wouldn't have stopped me from booking the room, just given me a more realistic idea of what to expect if I had known this.

I took my mom to Costa Rica for a Christmas present, we stay in the Gaia resort for 3 nights and found we didn't want to leave the hotel to explore because we enjoyed the staff and experience at the hotel so much. The level of service was unbelievable, we couldn't believe how great they were. Joxan was our bar tender/server every night, he was extremely personable and we loved sitting and chatting with him, asking him questions, and getting to know him (not to mention he makes the best drinks ever). Marco helped us at the pool every day, delivered my flip flops to my door when I forgot them, helped us find sloths, and toucans in the trees while we swam, and went above and beyond to make us feel special. Not to mention the rest of the staff that we got to know throughout our short stay. I would not stay anywhere else my next trip to Manuel Antonio.

Wife and I ended our two week trek in Costa Rica with a couple nights at the Gaia Hotel. We arrived early on the first day, around 9 am and the very welcoming staff at the restaurant sat us down and served us a complimentary and much appreciated breakfast, which we really didn’t expect. The rooms are very comfortable, with plenty of privacy. The bed was comfy and the fruit plate was a special treat. We enjoyed dinner and drinks there twice, which the gourmet food combined with the view, was magnificent. One night there were fireworks down at the harbor, which we enjoyed watching from our perch up at the Gaia restaurant. Only thing to be aware is there are many stairs around the resort. Guests with a mobility issue might find that a bit of a barrier. When we checked out we had the opportunity to chat for a minute with the owner, Boris. We thanked him for the relaxing stay and complemented his hardworking team. The Gaia was a perfect way to end our trip through Costa Rica.

Gaia is a very special hotel. The combination of location, food and service was excellent. Services of a personal concierge available almost 24/7 was a great help. The restaurant is top quality. And for birders, the resident population of scarlet macaws is truely amazing.

When the online review quoted them being the Top Rated 2017 Resort in Central America I'd thought I would surprise my new bride with a honeymoon to remember. Oh I sure did but not the memories we thought we would have. From the bathroom door knob coming off in her hand, locking herself in the bathroom, to "state of the art" moldy weight room each day brought new surprises. The soap dish was dangling from the wall and other items clearly past their maintenance date in the bathroom. Window latches didn't lock so you never felt safe, waxed wood floors causing a major slip hazard a TV that worked... sometimes. This is a young wait staff so they must still be working out their routine as they yelled across the dining room orders to each other, argued with us on what item we had ordered and how it was to be prepared... my wife ordered soup.. and they brought her a salad... REALLY?? The nail in the coffin was watching the pool bartender spray either herbicide or pesticide along the sidewalk of the pool deck then immediately mixing people drinks and serving food with never washing his hands. O M G!! Not saying you shouldn't stay there but simply be aware before making your reservation. Once upon a time it must have been a very special place. Not so much anymore.
