We were so surprised when we drove up. The view was absolutely beautiful. It is a small hotel but reminds me of a beautiful home. Be sure and bring your coats it is cold here. I would certainly come back and stay here. Marla from Texas

This is a wonderful hotel with outstanding service and amazing views. It is like you're staying at the home of a good friend who really cares about you and wants to please you. There are beautiful flowers placed all around and local strawberries in the room. We asked for a few more strawberries and they brought us an entire box!... More

My friend and I stayed for 3 nights in February 2014. The look of the hotel is very rustic and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The best part of the lodge was the staff who were all very helpful and nice. My friend became sick from something she ate in town and the staff went out of their way... More

We just came back from vacation and stayed at the Poas Volcano Lodge and did not regret a thing. The lodge is about 45 min from SJO airport and it was beautiful. My husband and 3 kids, ages 9, 8, and 5, stayed in the quetzal suite and had so much room. They brought in an extra bed which we... More

Service here was impeciable! Our room was early with a rock wall and a comfortable high end bedroom set. The staff was so friendly. We had dinner one night and it was excellent. There are a few walking trails that are nice. I don't think there are many rooms which makes it nice and secluded feeling. Very quiet. Be sure... More

I have to say we've been nothing but taken care of the entire time my sister, friend and I have been here. From helping us book excursions to providing amazing people to take us out for the day, poas volcano lodge has been nothing but a great host. I feel ridiculously pampered. Thank you for making our first days in... More

WOW! We enjoyed our stay at this hotel very much. Peace, tranquility, great food. And the employees are the best. Very accommodating. Not very far from Waterfall Park. Would stay here over and over again. No air conditioner needed --- wonderful weather. NO TV or radio in the room, they have their own entertainment room. They have little wood stoves... More

This was our third and final stop on our Groupon package. As we drove back the long lane through the dairy farm we wondered what in the world we were in for. The lodge is beautiful! There are reading rooms, a dining room and game rooms with a pool table. There is a TV room but I didn't see a... More
