The last hotel in the valley, it's located near the end of a bumpy road also called cerro muerte. I don't think it was that difficult to drive though absolutely recommended that you drive a 4x4. The rooms are good, warm water was working well and much appreciated cause temperatures drop since you're at 2600m and in the valley. There... More

Gorgeous hotel in an idyllic valley. I loved that there was no TV. The food and service was absolutely fantastic. There are incredible trails right down the road. San Gerardo de Dota reminds me of the Richard Brautigan novel "In Watermelon Sugar."

Our room was comfortable and the cabina had a great deck so if it rained we could enjoy the garden. There was some noise through the wall from the adjoining cabana but we slept soundly with only the sound of birds singing in the morning. We did the early morning bird tour which was excellent. The guide Agniel had all... More

Now this is something we will remember. After planning on heading South to Osa, it was a bit late and we decided to drive down this remote and secluded mountain valley, knowing some lodges were down there somewhere. We finally arrived at the end of the road and checked in with these friendly family, owner of the hotels. Long story... More

This was the second place we stayed in Costa Rica, after San Jose, and we were absolutely blown away. Nestled in a steep valley, the grounds are beautiful, and the surrounding area is incredibly peaceful. Getting to Suria is a bit of an adventure, but one won't be disappointed after the steep winding road in. There is no internet or... More

Hotel de Montana, or as we knew it - Suria Lodge is the last hotel (at the 10 km Mark) on the road that goes out of San Gerardo de Dota into the valley. It's a little difficult to get to, a little out of the way, but worth it, oh my yes. It's November and the rains are late... More

The accommodation was functional. The room was as expected - no better or worse. The food was good, again meeting expectation. The staff were great - friendly and helpful at all times. In particular, Agniel, who is a member of the family that owns the hotel, doubled up as a bird guide. He was helpful, friendly, and a first rate... More

Wonderful charming family run mountain hotel. The food is excellent. Our room was very spacious and the view was great. Great place to escape when visiting San Jose , only 1 .5 hours driving. Many birders where staying at the hotel too. All in all, a very good experience.

After a 2-night stay, the hotel seemed great in the pictures from the Website. However, it turns out to be very different from what you think: - The window in the bathroom is so low you can't open it up at all because people passing by can actually see you. If you're in the toilet or having a shower, keep... More
