"Tucked away, it was amazing for nature lovers, however it was very difficult to get anywhere but the hotel. The restaurant had decent food, but was amazingly accommodating to me, packing a lunch for me specifically during breakfast so I could hike all day. With the seclusion, however, comes a night of self-entertainment mostly."
"Absolutely wonderful if you want to do serious birdwatching! Great guide and great area."
"Birder's paradise! Friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable staff...we want to return!"
"There are very few restaurants and shops in San Gerardo. We mostly ate at Hotel Suria (excellent food), but we also walked to one restaurant (Cafe Kahawai?) that was good. The main attractions of San Gerardo are birdwatching, fishing and hiking. I felt that 2 or 3 days was more than enough to see the main trails and birds. "
