Authentic, honest reviews, since 1979

For over 40 years, our editors have traveled the globe incognito to discover exceptional hideaways and experiences for Andrew Harper members.

“The idea for this newsletter back in 1979 — to share information about peaceful and unspoiled sanctuaries with a limited and compatible group of sophisticated travelers — remains at the core of its identity today.”
“The small room count and highly professional but good-humored staff foster a convivial house-party atmosphere.”
“Other resorts are extravagant, other resorts are intimate, but I am unaware of any other resorts in Como that are so thoroughly both.”

Editors' Choice Awards

Hideaway of the Year

This year’s award goes to family-owned Passalacqua. Less than a year old, this gorgeously refurbished 18th-century palace has already raised the bar on Lake Como.

Nature Unspoiled

Costa Rica

Bounded on one side by the Caribbean and on the other by the Pacific, Costa Rica is blessed with spectacular coastlines and a mountainous interior of rainforest.

“The central mountainous area around San José enjoys a pleasant temperate climate. Both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts are tropical, with May through October being hot and humid. The best time for a visit is January through April, but we’ve also had exceedingly enjoyable stays in November and December.”
