Ok, to keep it real, this is a 3 star lodge with a 5 star view. Absolutely breathtaking vista, and We loved it! It is a very quaint, small operation with the benefit of personal service. The food was really delicious. The owners gave great information, like recommending a private driver for us who was fantastic. They had a fire... More

I stayed at Poas Lodge for one night last week. As all other reviews have mentioned, the owners are great hosts and very friendly and helpful. I was a little concerned about finding the place, but the drive from SJO was very easy - very few turns and essentially just follow the many signs to Poas Volcano Park. I had... More

The Poas Lodge was fantastic. My husband and I are already talking about when we can go back. Here's a laundry list of what's great about it: location (quiet, near the entrance to Poas), view (stunning, you're on the edge of the mountain with nothing blocking it), rooms (comfy bed with generous covers for cold weather/nights, hot water in the...

We loved the views, the food and friendly hosts (+furry host as well). The hot water in the shower wasn't too hot but reasonable and understandable for the location. Room was roomy enough for three of us.

From the gorgeous views, delicious food, friendly hosts and comfortable rooms, this place was a complete delight. The location was perfect being so close to the Poas Volcano crater and not far from La Paz Waterfalls. Make sure you order the Tres Leches cake if available for dessert and the french toast for breakfast. Both Stephan and Jimmie were extremely... More

We made this our first stop after arriving at SJO. It was a short 30 min drive up the mtn. The views were awesome and the dinner and breakfast were spectacular. The rooms are basic, but very comfy. The owners. ( brothers) were easy going and very helpful. They build a fire each night and the entire main floor smells... More

This place was great. We had just driven in from Nosara (5 hours away); it was late and we had plans to meet a friend for a drink. We were leaving the next day from San Jose to fly home, and so need a place close to the airport. We arrived late--too late for dinner with Jimmie and Stephen, so... More

What a great place! Views to die for... Watch from the dining room (and bar) as the whole central valley lights up and then goes dark as the clouds turn the corner of the lodge. Stephan can cook and Jimmie can wait tables with the best! A truly unique place.

Just wanted to share how great this find was! We arrived in from San Jose and spent the day exploring the Poas Volcano. Since it was too far of a drive at night we stayed at this lodge and we are so happy we did! Jimmie and Stephan were fantastic hosts and the breakfast they made was fantastic! The room... More

We loved the Poas Lodge! Stayed 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Jimmie & Stephan are terrific hosts and very helpful with suggestions and information about the area. Stephan did a great job as chef, preparing excellent meals. Views can't be beat and very comfortable accommodations. We hope to return again for a longer stay. Jim &... More
