The minute my clients at Costa Rica Vacations ask about 5-star hotel and a property with a spa, I tell them about Los Altos de Eros. This 5-star, award-winning small Costa Rica luxury hotel nestled in the mountains of Cañafistula in the northwest province of Guanacaste, is an unequaled experience.


Upon entering the foyer, you are overlook a spectacular forest as well as the Pacific ocean, a view that takes the breath away.  All the rooms are modern suites with a tropical décor, some with an indoor/outdoor shower and surrounding the infinity pool.


Around that pool and down a bit is the most amazing spa you will ever have the pleasure to experience. Built off the side of the mountain in bamboo, one entire side of the spa is open over the forest to the sea. Therefore, in my experience, getting a massage in a private room with that view really helps with relaxation. A milk bath in the Indonesian soaking tub, eases stress, and the wraps I’ve had helped my sun-drenched skin immensely.


When you book a room at Los Altos de Eros, your catered breakfast is included.  For lunch and dinner, I can vouch for the cuisine, having eaten the chef’s special chicken, tuna and shrimp on many occasions.  And, guests have the option of taking cooking classes, where 5-star/4-course meals are created and then consumed to delight.
