We stayed here one night before visiting Poas Volcano National Park the next day and had a great experience. The view from the lodge is unbeatable, and the owners are very helpful made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We had a room on the lower level with the patio and perfect view of the San Jose below. The bed was... More

If you enjoy spectacular sunsets, awesome customer service, delicious food and cozy accommodations, this is definitely the place to stay. Jimmie and Stephan are very nice and super laid back. They truly make you feel at home. The lodge is located very close to the Poas Volcano. And if you are feeling adventurous, run to the gates of the Volcano... More

I recently stayed for a weekend at the Poas Lodge with my wife and it was a great experience. We were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary and we wanted a calm and relaxed place to stay and we definitely hit the mark. The owners Stephan and Jimmie will make you feel at home, they are very polite and service oriented.... More

This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and to see the Poas Volcano. I booked one night at the Poas Lodge online after reading several reviews. I was extremely happy upon arrival! The lodge has a very comfortable and relaxing feel, with the best view I have ever scene from a hotel! Relatively easy to locate from Juan Santamaria... More

Jimmie and Stephan are the friendly owners of this place and they are very helpful. The lodge includes a restaurant where you can have a nice dinner and they also serve breakfast (the... More

This place has the most incredible view I have ever seen. The humming birds are amazing. The owners of the lodge are wonderful hosts, the food is delicious, it's close in proximity to the best hiking ever...and as one of the the other reviewers said, the most comfortable beds! (Where do they get those sheets???) There is nothing bad to... More

My husband and I stayed here on our first night in CR. We stayed here prior to staying at The Peace Lodge. While The peace lodge was over the top beautiful, I truly wish we had had at least one more night at this lodge. It was peaceful and comforting. The view is second to none in the area. I... More

We loved this place! Stefan and Jimmie, brothers from Texas, are the most wonderful hosts. Their help during our stay as well as before over email made our trip so much easier and more enjoyable.

By far the most comfortable bed I slept in in Costa Rica--great mattress, lots of warm blankets for the cold nights up on the volcano. The hotel rooms and restaurant/common area share an amazing view of the entire Central Valley--really special when the sun goes down and the lights start to come on. The kids also enjoyed the games available... More
