Fabulous location next to the rainforest research center. Beautiful grounds. Small pool with an infinity edge which is really pretty. Restaurant & bar (though you sometimes have a go into the restaurant area to ask someone to serve you in the bar.

Just by looking at the construction of the hotel itself tells you a lot, the wealth of information at the hotel premises with the indigenous burial grounds offers you a great chance to learn about the Costa Rican indigenous groups that inhabits these lands centuries ago. Having Tirimbina Biological reserve right next to it is a great asset, just block... More

Stayed three nights. Absolutely a good choice for your stay in. Costa Rica. Great food and service. No air conditioning but the ceiling fan works very well. Friendly staff all helpful. Pool for cooling off not swimming.

I guess if you're looking for a very simple place to stay, this may be a good choice. We traveled with two kids, ages 14 and 16, and they don't have rooms that accommodate four people. So we had to get 2 rooms. The bedding is old, no wifi to speak of except for in the main building. This was... More

This is such a charming and unique lodge, which makes it fun to stay there. First of all the buildings have thatched roofs. You walk into your building and there are approx. six rooms all on the same floor. The rooms are quite large with a back porch area with nice benches. We had a walk in shower and a... More

The thatched room lodges are round, and contain several spacious, uniquely-shaped rooms with private sitting areas outdoors. The infinity pool was nicely landscaped, and there were a couple of nature trails on the property. Buffet-style meals were varied and healthy, and served in an open-air room near a bird feeder. The only drawback was the spotty attentiveness of staff--we couldn't... More

The staff were extremely welcoming. the lodge seems to adhere to green practices. The bar overlooks a beautiful infinity pool tucked between tres. A variety of bird sounds add ro its ambiance. Food was plentiful... More

This lodge is in a lovely setting, we thought the grounds were well kept and the swimming pool is very attractive. The rooms are large, plenty of hot water and excellent showers and tea and coffee is available free of charge 24hrs a day in the reception area. The lodge is also ideally situated next to the Trimming Rainforest Reserve.... More

Very nice room clean but the hotel itself needs updating. Staff very slow had to find someone to get drinks from the bar every night we were there. Food not good buffet style dinner, no choice to eat in hotel as there is nothing in town. Gardens need cleaning and weeding. Good pool! Only wifi in the reception area and... More

A nice eco lodge, located very close to the Tirimbina Rainforest Biological Reserve. The rooms are located in buildings like thatched huts. The rooms are simple but spacious and comfortable. The rooms have showers only, and you should bring soap and shampoo from home. Breakfast and dinner are basic. there is also a botanical garden , archaeological remains and nice... More
