Man, we sure did fall in love with this place. There were 7 of us, so they gave us run of the Pineapple House. The building is a 3 minute walk from the main lodge and absolutely perfect for those in search of a communal atmosphere. 3 bedrooms, a large living room, a basic kitchen and a bathroom. The best...

If you want an authentic, cultural Costa Rican experience, I would definitely recommend this lodge. It is beautiful and situated on 25 acres that has some of the most picturesque areas in all of Costa Rica. Ironically, we came to this lodge to hike around the Arenal volcano, but we found the hikes around the lodge much more challenging, adventurous... More

I stayed at Princesa de la Luna Eco Lodge last week and WOW what a great place to stay. I had no idea what to expect going in but upon arrival we were greeted by the gracious owner and host Jonathan. He was so welcoming and made us feel like we were at home. The eating area, kitchen and lounging... More

It was late and we had already endured many hours of flight delays and traffic in Costa Rica so perhaps we weren't off on the right foot. When we got into La Fortuna, the gps coordinates (from their website at the time) took me to some dark road where we drove around aimlessly until we found another hotel to ask... More

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful eco-lodge for 5 days in February. The house itself is hard to figure out by looking at the pictures. It is a hotel with a home-like feel. Your food is prepared for you in an open kitchen, which is also available to use at your leisure, if you choose. I recommend having... More

My family of 5 stayed at Princesa de la Luna Eco Lodge in December. I was a little leery at the time due to reading some negative reviews. I had already paid for three nights, so I figured if it wasn't perfect that we would make the best of it. I was pleasantly surprised. The accommodations were incredible. My kids(ages... More

I'm not one to complain much about an experience, but since this location fell so short of our expectations, I thought it was important to share with others who may consider going there. Probably one of the biggest drawbacks to this property isn't the owner fault directly, but I felt he could have, or maybe should have, been made an... More

You ask me if the comments you posted were helpful...unfortunately I think they are misleading and damaging. Your first point, complaining about the 1.8km pebble dirt road. Yes some parts are bad and we are pressuring the local authority to make further improvements, it´s not as if our community doesn´t care!!!!.....Look we share the hope and the dream that this...

My girlfriend and I had the privilege of staying at Princesa de la Luna for the last few days of our Christmas and New Years trip to Costa Rica. It was an absolute pleasure and a wonderfully relaxing site to end a fantastic trip. John was very hospitable and the morning breakfast was delicious, not to mention a beautiful view... More

My husband and I were scheduled to stay at Princesa de la Luna for two nights in January. We were definitely caught off-guard by the remoteness of the place and by the extreme poor condition of the road going up. When we arrived, Jonathan was asleep in his room and we didn't know where we needed to check in, so... More

The Princessa de la Luna is very well-located on the side of a hill accessible via a short car ride from the town of La Fortuna. The location is idyllic with a great view of the Arenal volcano, filled with a staggering range of flora, and a pathway down to a private pool complete with a nearby waterfall (there is... More
