Ecological and social concept

When renovating the building and constructing the restaurant we used as many natural building and furnishing materials as possible. One of our rooms and the restaurant are wheelchair-friendly. It is also very important to us to offer our employees good working conditions.

Cultural and artistic concept

Our cultural and artistic concept is meant to honour the pre-Columbian cultures, who assume that nature and spirit form a unified whole. Not only is the hotel's furnishing and decoration geared to this but also the restaurant uses typical and indigenous recipes and ingredients. Our version of the "Nueve Cocina Costarricense" is a fusion of local dishes with Spanish-European and Afro-Caribbean elements. Expositions of costarican artists, concerts and poetry nights complet our cultural offer.
