We were so glad to choose Finca Luna Nueva Lodge. The place is great - far away from it all and very comfortable (we stayed at one of the Luna Casa rooms). The staff was great too! I wish we stayed a little longer; 2 nights were not enough. Food: Really good; we got spoiled eating all the fresh food... More

Great location and very educational working farm. My senses were completely overwhelmed by the amount of knowledge and experience held by the tour guides and farmers. The only downside was that the bed was pretty uncomfortable and creakyand walls were paper thin. The vibe was more of a hostel than romantic so you may want to ask for a private... More

Finca Luna Nueva is excellent at being a farm and OK at being a hotel/resort. We really enjoyed the farm tour and learning about their interesting farming practices. Our rooms were adequate and comfortable and would benefit from some serious reading light improvements. The shower was a bit grotty. What we felt was the focus on the farm and the... More

Truly a wonderful and amazing experience here. Finca means farm so those who are looking for something more built up should look elsewhere. But for those who can enjoy a bucolic atmosphere w some great food and a solid farming philosophy, then this is the place for you. We stayed in a Bungalow which was ample for 6 people (two... More

I can recommend the rain forest and the farm tour. Ishmael was very knowledgable and we learned a lot in the two days we stayed there. It is definitely worth the (small) price. We slept well, but rain forest life stars at 5.30, and also cars and motorcycles from the street are heard. Rooms are very rustical and basic but... More

If you are looking for a real experience in Costa Rica and you are a nature lover, this is the place!. We (a family with two kids 8& 10 yrs old) had a great time getting to know about sustainable producing and farming as well as talking to the staff, you will learn a lot from them. The rooms are...

Beautiful grounds, friendly staff, quiet, serene and relaxing. We loved having miles and miles of private jungle trails and with the food provided right there we didn't feel the need to leave the grounds at all. The pool and the observation tower were a nice touch. I definitely recommend this for couples looking for a unique experience.

We were two families, with 4 small kids: 2 6-yr olds and 2 3-yr olds. This review pertains to groups like ours. Overall, the place is a very nice setting right in the middle of the rainforest; the staff are great, the meals are prepared fresh on property and tasty, the pool is (unheated, but) nice.We enjoyed our time there;...

Lovely, caring staff in a beautiful environment. Definitely take the Farm Tour and talk to people about what the farm is doing and why. The attempt to create a bio-dynamic atmosphere is inspiring. Staff is responsive and helpful.

I loved my stay at Luna Nueva. whoever wrote "A beautiful way to experience the magic of the rainforest" said just about everything I would have said. the experience was so wonderful that I grieved after returning to the states! I would go back in a heartbeat and will do so at the first opportunity!
