Great lodge, with all the comfort you wish! may overpriced, but worth it. Botanical garden not good, messy. Really big rooms, great bed, nice little balcony. "Natur" pool is great - almost right into the rainforest...some stuff a bit moody and willing to speak english, but not with passion or effort. Wifi just in reception :(

Right in the middle of the rain forest and a biological preserve. You are surrounded by amazing flora and fauna and are likely to see a number of tropical birds and animals. This is no chain hotel. The rooms are 6-8 rooms per round, thatched-roofed building. They are plain but very comfortable and clean with the sounds of the forest... More

It was very disappointing that the museum was closed and that is not indicated on the website nor in any travelguide. Same for Archaeological Park 'Alma Ata' that was under reconstruction. The hotel was very basic. The service on the other hand was impecable, very nice lady that gaves us a splendid tour when we arrived and also very nice.... More

Driving up to this lodge during our trip to Costa Rica was a treat. The uniqueness of the lodge and the beauty of its negative-edge swimming pool that almost magically disappear into the rainforest behind it was a delight for all senses. Our travel time was during the "low season" so-to-speak as there weren't many other guests which made it... More

We loved this hotel! It was the perfect place to stay while enjoying the natural beauty that Sarapiqui and the La Virgen area has to offer. Right next to the hotel is the beautiful rainforest Tirimbina for hiking and a vast array of eco walks, and 10 minutes away is the put in for white water rafting which we did... More

This was my favorite Lodge during my visit to Costa Rica. The Lodge consists of several large pre-Columbian style huts that contain 8 rooms with private baths. There is a glass door that connects to a patio to view wildlife which is abundant. They are located next to La Trimibina Reserve and many birds and monkeys visited the Lodge. We... More

Delicious food and beautiful surroundings. Definitely recommend this for a place to stay and enyoy your surroundings. Rooms were clean and showers had warm water with good pressure. Wifi was not very strong in the lobby area but our family was not in Costa Rica to be connected so we did not let it affect us too much.

This was the next stop in our group's tour of Costa Rica, and it was probably my least favorite. The reception space, dining area, and exterior room spaces were quite nice. The rooms were circled around a large thatch-covered courtyard that kept things cool. Inside the rooms, at least our room, things weren't as pleasant. First, it was quite hard... More

This was my least favorite hotel of our 10 days in Costa Rica. The rooms while spacious, are stuffy with no a/c, and the fan provides very little air movement for such a large room. We had no hot water for the 2 days we were there. The food while edible (buffet style), with vegetarian options was not particularly good.... More

This is all about being surrounded by the rainforest, and that is lovely. The property is on the edge of a steep sided valley, with the river beneath, so the habitat for birds is ideal. The view from the sloping garden and especially across from the attractive infinity pool and waterfall are beautiful, and birds, including hummingbirds, are frequently around.... More
