We stayed at the lodge for about 12 hours only. We were canyoneering (waterfall rappelling and zip lining) with Explornatura company in the afternoon and rafting with Tico's River adventures the next day. Both companies within 30 minutes of this lodge. I contacted the lodge a few days before our stay and we were able to get a great price... More

I highly recommend this lodge, not only is the stay comfortable but the staff make you feel at home. Rik, one of the staff members at the lodge really made me and my group have a great time. The staff members are really on point for making your stay a good one. The views at the lodge are also pretty... More

My family (2 adults, 2 children - ages 9 and 12) spent three nights at Guayabo Lodge. We were in a room on the second floor with gorgeous views of the valley. We flew into San Jose and drove to the lodge. We had a GPS so the lodge was easy to find. Pedro and his team were excellent hosts!... More

Very well located lodge, with a great view of the valley and the volcanoes. Many rooms have balconies overlooking the valley. The rooms are spacious with modern bathrooms. Nice common areas to relax and read. The dinner menu choice is however limited. Overall, a very pleasant stop-over during the long journey across the mountains to travel from the Caribbean to...

Our 2-night visit to Guayabo Lodge March 2015 was extremely comfortable and welcoming. From here our objective was easily reached to tour the Pre-Columbian Guayabo village dig site, a national monument, the only real such ancient site in Costa Rica and an education in itself. Read up on it beforehand or employ the services of a guide at the park... More

I stayed here for two nights in February of 2015. The owners and staff are all very friendly and helpful. When I arrived, I needed help getting my cell phone working with a Costa Rica company called Movistar. The woman at the reception helped me interpret the Spanish messages that I was receiving and said I just ran out of... More

Guayabo Lodge was the most incredibly relaxing and delightful spot to stay. Our room was very comfortable with a wonderful view of the volcano. The grounds were spectacular and the sunrise our first morning was beautiful. Our group experienced a cooking lesson with Roseanna as we 'helped' prepare our dinner which was a great time. The final production of that... More

Ok, but a little overpriced. The constant talk about the great gourmet food - was a disappointment . Food was mediocre I was interested in a Costa Rican experience instead I got an over priced European where reality didn't live up to the hype.

I stayed for two nights in the Guayabo Lodge and every morning we woke up, we had a stunning view! At one side you could see the smoking volcano and at the other side you could see the view over the Turrialba Valley. Really beautiful! The breakfast and the dinner where nice and the staff was very friendly. They helped... More

In May I enjoyed a wonderful stay in this lodge. I visited a wedding of a friend, organized in the tropical garden. Unforgettable! In the garden I spotted beautiful flowers and butterflies and birds. In the morning the smoke of the volcano is visible. I loved the food as well. The lady and het husband are very nice people. They... More
