Beautiful setting. Owner's social skills bizarre. The staff were very pleasant. Food home cooked and acceptable. No bar. The Room was cold, dark and damp with a loose sink. We were the only guests so perhaps we could have given a better room. We arrived 'late' for lunch and told we had to have dinner at 18.30 and we 'Negotiated'... More

Let me preface this review by saving I have worked in the hotel world for over 15years now so I have seen my fair share of hotels.

We arrived very late at night (dickens of a time finding it), it was raining & cold. They helped us unload & get the baggage to our room. Rooms are very minimalistic, no dressers or closet, there is a rack to put your things away. We woke to more rain but went to explore the grounds anyway. As I went... More

I was fortunate enough to have stayed for 4 nights with many opportunities to enjoy the nature at it's finest. Heavenly atmosphere created by misty clouds floating through the mountains and the lush greenery of the forest draped behind it. Exotic songs and sounds of birds envelope you in a magical world from dawn till dusk. Because of the transition... More

I stayed here for three nights. The lodge lies in the mountains, surrounded by a beautiful forest and with babbling brooks everywhere. Plenty of hummingsbirds and other wildlife and several good trails around the grounds. Bring warm clothes as it gets chilly in the evenings. I came here for the birds but the tranquility and beauty of this place made... More

Bosque de Paz was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. A great way to see the rainforest and get away from the crowds. As a photographer, the hummingbirds, songbirds and various mammals kept me occupied. The trails are well-maintained and the foliage and creeks were beautiful. The lodge was clean and the rooms spacious. The food was "just... More

We have birded in 12 different countries and this was one of the best lodges we have ever stayed at. The room was great. Our meals were delicious and far superior to what one normally gets at a birding lodge. The grounds were fun to explore with many closeup views of hummingbirds. Well maintained trails went into the forest for... More

Beautiful place, in the mountains, with walking trails, and orchid garden, and friendly owners willing to help you out with anything you may need. The hummingbirds are gorgeous and varied as well as the other birds that frequent the feeders. The coatis and agoutis and pacas all come to the food as well so it makes for great wildlife viewing....

I had a ground floor room in the center of the hotel.. The room was clean and comfortable with a lot of good hot water, but it was cold. The management said they do not have space heaters because it is an ecological lodge. So I slept in pants, socks and a fleece sweatshirt -- thankfully had a heating pad... More
