Before writing this review, had to go back and read the negative reviews, some before earthquake some after. There is no doubt things are definitely different. Arrived here with my wife and daughter from some rather rustic lodgings in Monteverde, and both were thrilled to be here. The redesign inside the main lodge is very pleasing, and our room, room...

We stayed 1 night at Poas Volcano Lodge as part of a 10-day birding tour lead by Tropical Feathers. The lodge is at the end of a small road through a cattle pasture. Rustic rooms and cabins, decorated with fresh flowers and hot bottles in our beds to take off the chill of the evening. Great food and friendly staff.... More

My husband and I spent two nights here to kick off our trip in Costa Rica. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. The lodge is nestled in the hills near a dairy farm with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. The employees were friendly, and our room was spacious and clean. (We stayed in the garden view room.)... More

What a beautiful hotel! Super clean and the grounds are gorgeous. Make sure to read the book in the library area that tells the place's history, quite interesting. Also, take a walk on their trails. You won't see another soul and you really get a feel for the old farming style of the area. Be sure to put "Poas VOLCANO... More

We stayed for one night in a garden view room. The "garden" is a nice but small area that is the center of the driveway circle in between the bunkhouse and the main lodge. The view out the back is of a small hill about 20 meters away leading into a cow pasture. As mentioned in a previous review, these... More

Nicest in the area. Stylish facility, old school throwback with game room, cozy reading room and fine nature trails. Gentle and warm service. Has the feeling of being very intimate and exclusive in an easy and breezy way.

We stayed here for our first night in Costa Rica, the staff were incredibly helpful allowing us to order dinner when we arrived late from the airport and then letting us use the phone when we had hire car problems the following morning. We stayed in a Garden room as we weren't looking to spend a fortune on a one... More

We stayed at this Lodge for two nights in December. The main building is very warm and welcoming. We also met fellow travelers with whom we shared dinner and had a wonderful time. The hosts were helpful and accommodating. The negatives - these is a very large drop off between the quality of rooms in the main building and the... More

little bit hard to find the lodge in the dark, as the dirt road looks like leading to a farm between the cows... very nice and cosy veranda and sitting room, but only wine, no beer. the rooms in the main building are very large and clean. everything feels a bit moist, but the second day we received a hot...

We only stayed here for 1 night but it was so lovely and the people were fantastic. The night we stayed (early Dec) was rainy but they had umbrellas available everywhere and it was lovely to warm up by the wood fire. We stayed in one of the garden rooms with 2 beds (Heliconia I think) and it was great... More
