We were in Costa Rica on vacation. Wife and I stayed a few days down at the beach; then we booked 2 nights at the Poas Lodge to visit the volcano & see a couple of other sites while up there. WOW -- Poas Lodge -- what a place! The hotel is run by 2 brothers from Texas. It's a... More

I am visiting Costa Rica for 2 months and have been lucky enough to travel to many places. One of them happened to be this amazing lodge. It was a great location because it was so close to Poas Volcano as well as La Paz Waterfall Gardens, so we could do both places in one day. I took a group... More

We enjoyed our stay at Poas Lodge. They brothers who own it are friendly. They are very knowledgable about the city and provided great suggestions on activities/places to enjoy in Costa Rica. The room was clean and had an excellent view of the city. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of blankets and pillows. The food was fabulous! The... More

The Texan brothers who bought this place about a year ago certainly were wise in seeing its extraordinary potential, and have done a great job so far in trying to attain that. The view is nothing short of spectacular, and the reception/dining area is a casual and inviting place to enjoy it, complete with cozy fire roaring on the cool... More

I you want the best view in CR then Poas Lodge is the place to be... Two American brothers couldn't be more welcoming. Dinner and a few drinks around the huge fireplace was a great end to our day of traveling and white water rafting. Thanks again Jimmie, see you both soon. Paul Taylor Houston, TX

We love this place and the brothers who own it. We found it on TripAdvisor last year and enjoyed our stay so much that we planned our Costa Rican trip this year based on the availability of rooms at the Poas Lodge. The place is breath-taking and the owners, Jimmie and Stephan, go out of their way to make you... More

Dont bother looking anywhere else. Stay here rather than staying in San Jose. Go the volcano bright and early in the morning or the Doka Coffee Plantations. Great location and you absolutely will enjoy the views. Fog rolling in, cows crazing, amazing views of the valley and on a clear day you can see the ocean. Stephan is a great... More

I can definitely recommend this lodge if you are planning on visiting the Poas Volcano. Rooms are cosy, nicely decorated and clean, breakfast keeps you going for most of the day, the meals served are tasty and the view over the valley is spectacular. Keep up the good work folks !

My boyfriend and I chose Poas Lodge due to the great trip advisor reviews and close location to the volcano. We stayed there one night in May 2014. We were able to get an early start and go up to the crater as soon as the park opened. The view from the room was amazing during the day and really... More
