Reviews of Villa Lapas (Rainforest Resort), Costa Rica

A very good place to start our holiday. If we'd had the extra day we lost due to our flight being delayed it would have been a perfect length stay.

Everything worked but in need of a little TLC.

Villa Lapas was just as you described. Super location, but accommodation is in need of an upgrade. The beds and curtains are visibly dirty.

An american school group arrived at the hotel, which was noisy but ok. The breakfast was average.

I would stay there again due to location and wildlife in the grounds, but the accommodation was past its best and the food was mediocre and expensive at $22 for a buffet lunch. Overall we were happy with Villa Lapas.

rating

Villa Lapas was fascinating, although basic.
