The World's Best Hotels, Resorts & Hideaways - Our 24th Annual Survey of Sophisticated Travelers.
For 24 years, Andrew Harper has surveyed their readers about the world's best hotels and resorts and it is recognized as one of the longest running and most reliable poll of its kind conducted among sophisticated frequent travelers. Unlike most travel magazines whose polling results often seem erratic from year to year, the Andrew Harper Hideaway Report survey serves as a steady and consistent gauge in accurately pinpointing the current hotel and destination preferences of upscale travelers. Below you find what Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report had to say about Lapa Rios, the only hotel mentioned in Central America and one of the few ecolodges in this survey.
A Sampler of Favorite International Resort Hideaways: Lapa Rios (Costa Rica): Engaging and authentic 16-room wilderness refuge set on a dramatic coastal overlook, an hour by air south of San Jose. A striking open-air restaurant pavilion features a panoramic observation platform for viewing monkeys and a dazzling array of parrots and toucans residing in the embracing forest. Overseen by a knowledgeable staff, the first-rate ecological outpost offers noteworthy naturalist-guided jungle and shoreline safaris.
