We stayed at another eco lodge 5 minute walk from Catarata as ours didn't have a bar or serve drinks. We wished we had chosen to stay here as there is a lovely sitting and dining area overlooking the beautifully maintained gardens. There seemed to be a lot of birds of all sorts visiting the gardens whereas we didn't see... More

I read that Eco Lodge is just another Name for b&b (or excuse for low quality). This is a very simple b@b, but with a very nice garden, and with a pool. You don't have a view. Not recommended without car. Rooms are ok but very basic. Breakfast is good, staff nice. You just Need to know what to expect... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while taking birding tours around the zone. The staff was always nice and willing to help, even when we requested a couple of additional towels since we were leaving at 4:30am one of the days. My wife took breakfast once and it was good as well. We didn't get the chance to... More

So this place is nothing special... The staff is friendly and the cabins are legit, and we appreciated the gardens and pool... But it was lacking on the little things- internet doesn't work on rooms and there's no ac or tv in rooms... This being stleast we didn't feel as though it was a rip off... Just it could have... More

Catarata Eco-Lodge is located a ways outside the tourist town of La Fortuna (an $8 cab ride) and since we didn't have a car, I was a little concerned, but really wanted NOT to be in the town. I also knew we would be within walking distance of several of the attractions I was interested in--the Cerro Chato hike, and... More

We were looking for a quiet place which was not so close to main road. This perfectly fitted! It was quiet, clean and with hammocks in front of the door to cool out and watch some humming birds. The breakfast was included and really good. We also got a lot of help from the reception, especially from Jessica. From the... More

I took a group of college students here on a study abroad trip when visiting the Arenal Volcano and waterfall. This is our second year staying at this location, and it is one of my favorites, mostly because it offers just what we need. The food is great, and most students reported that it is their favorite food of the... More

The accommodations are simple and comfortable. If you are looking for amenities such as television, internet access, fancy furniture - this is an eco-lodge and not what you seek. If you're looking for a comfortable bed, bathroom with shower, clean and well-maintained facility, reasonable cost, and a restaurant with good food, this is an option to consider. The restaurant serves... More

We stopped here on recommendation from Lonely Planet (without a reservation) and were pleasantly surprised that not only did they have a room, but it was a huge triple for $60 including breakfast! The room was basic, as expected, but clean with a huge bathroom and shower. The grounds are beautiful, the main building where you eat is all open... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teens stayed at this lodge for 3 nights and enjoyed the experience. The location is great, right at the foot of the volcano, although seeing the volcano depends on your luck (the weather). The lodge has excellent rooms, well spread out in beautifully landscaped garden. I wouldn't call the rooms luxurious but were... More
