We loved staying here.Very peaceful environment. The owners,two brothers, were both helpful and made our stay comfortable. The views are spectacular. Very close to La Paz Waterfall gardens, which I totally reccommend visiting while staying in the area. Loved the fireplace after a chilly day hiking. Food they served for dinner was great. Bed comfy with just enough pillows (love... More

We booked one night at the Poás Lodge at the end of our stay in Costa Rica, so as to be able to bird the Poás Volcano park and surrounding region before returning home. Stefan and Jimmy were tremendously welcoming and full of useful information on the area. The lodge does not look like much from the road, but don't... More

The owners encouraged us to arrive in time for the sunset, which we did amidst mist! Low and behold, within 20 minutes the beautiful valley below was revealed and we had a wonderful sunset! The lodge is really cozy and the rooms are lovely and spacious with nice decorating touches. We had one of the king rooms with the most... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and greatly enjoyed my time here. Not only were the brothers/owners very accommodating but quite entertaining as well. The room had a wonderful view and there was a nice area to sit at outside. It was amazing to sit outside and relax with a beer while watching the clouds/fog roll through. The breakfast was... More

We were four retired female friends on a 10 day trip and were pleasantly surprised with the Lodge. We enjoyed the huge fireplace and cozy blankets in the great room. The food was absolutely wonderful and the mixed drinks delicious. One really feels at home here. The owners/brothers were very hospitable and we shared a lot of laughs. The rooms... More

My husband and I had an overnight flight from California and arrived in Costa Rica around 7am. Got our car rental in San Jose and made the drive over to the Poas region to find our hotel and perhaps drop off our luggage. We arrived at the hotel with no problems around 10am. The hotel was obviously closed (front doors... More

We could not have made a better lodging choice for our first two nights in Costa Rica. Quiet and laid back, close to Poas Volcano and the La Paz Waterfalls, our stay at Poas Lodge definitely got our vacation off to a great start. We had mostly rain and lots of wind during our stay but when the skies cleared... More
