We stayed for two nights while in the area in March 2014. The location is about a 5-minute drive from town so you are close to all the activities but it is very nice and quiet when you want to sleep. Nice hot private shower and cool air conditioning made for a comfortable stay. Delicious breakfast was included (traditional Costa... More

This is a small cabin-style hotel with only 4 cabins available. It is entirely operated by the owner and his wife (really nice people). It is located just outside the town of La Fortuna, very close to the waterfall and close to some adventure activities (zip lining, horseback riding, etc.) They advertise "hot water" but it only comes out "steaming...

We stayed here for 3 nights while in the area. They were so welcoming, accommodating and tried very hard to make our stay comfortable. The cabins were exceptionally clean which I think is important and very well maintained. We had the breakfast every morning and it was a great typical breakfast. It's also within walking distance to town and they... More

Selvita Lodge is a charming, quaint, and lovely property with even lovelier people! My girlfriends and I were here for two nights and stayed in a clean, good sized bungalow with a large bathroom. There was an AC unit in the room, a huge shower with warm water, and comfortable beds. The owners (a Tico family) of the lodge were... More

My younger sister and I absolutely loved the cabaña styled rooms - so unique, quaint and pretty. It felt like we were staying in a jungle hut. The bathroom/shower/beds/everything was very clean and there was great AC and internet. The couple that owned the lodges were so sweet - we instantly fell in love with them and their cute dogs,...
