This Caribbean hotel is steeped in the early history of tourism at Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. It was here that over twenty two years ago the owners,  a young couple full of dreams, arrived after three days of searching for a magical spot in the Caribbean, traveling by motorcycle and on foot, and pitched their tents in the falling light. They awoke in an illuminated tropical forest of breathtaking beauty. Unique, peaceful and remote, this wild untrammeled wilderness is still the defining experience at this Hotel.

Eden Rock is the entire southern flank of a 280 m mountain on the Pacific Coast. We bought it in 1999 to preserve the habitat of a rare group of TiTi monkeys. Eden Rock borders the Costanera Coastal Road for 1 km. Most of the mountain is covered with rainforest teeming with wildlife. !00m above sea level lies a 6 hectare natural step. This is the cleared part on which the house lies. It is slightly tilted making it possible to easily build a whole settlement, all while keeping the view of the sea for each house. The view is of the Rio Terraba meandering towards you through its protected Mangrove Forest, the string of mangrove islands which separate it from the sea, the Pacific with Cano Island on the horizon, Drake Bay, and the Osa Peninsula.
