Guayabo Lodge is nestled in the shadow of the Turrialba volcano... and the views of the surrounding area speak for themselves! Our morning vista of the volcano from our bed was absolutely beautiful. The Lodge is a great place to base yourself if you are in the Turrialba area for rafting or the monument. The hotel staff are very friendly... More

This spacious lodge is located just minutes away from the paved road. We stayed in one of the large rooms on the top floor, with a breath taking view on the active volcano. We stayed three nights during a wedding, we never had a better scenery for a garden wedding. Next to the great food, the hospitality was overwhelming. A... More

I'm a gringo but a Costa Rican resident for nearly 5 years. Travel and stay all over the country. Picked this hotel to visit the Guayabo National Monument. I have to say this was one of the worst experiences I've had in Costa Rica. We were issued room number 14. Bathroom floor was filthy. Shower looked equally as horrible -... More

This lodge is easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. We stayed there while visiting a rural town called Tres Equis that was about 45 minutes away. The food is delicious and the property gorgeous. There are fireflies which we loved. There is not much to do so if you are planning to stay in the lodge... More

My wife and I arrived in the dark last May. Not knowing the area we thought we were too far away from Turrialba. The next day we woke up to a wonderful location. Situated on an active volcano...we love it. Pedro and his staff were so accommodating to help us enjoy their part of paradise. The food, fabulous. Pedro's wife... More

The place is a family own hotel, in the rural mountain of Costa RIca is the peace you look for with a great location between the Volcano the Guayabo Park, and Turrialba. Well manage food is very good and the service is great, the price is just right

If you want to be in this neighborhood to visit Volcan Irazu (go to Volcan Poas instead) or the Archaeological Monument (highly recommended) then this is very convenient. Definitely a mixed bag of good and mediocre. Room was large though bathroom was tiny (could barely get on and off the toilet without knocking TP holder off the wall and we're... More

We loved our time at Guayabo Lodge. Quiet and restful with great food. Very clean and comfortable. Pedro and his staff provided a clean comfortable setting. The girls enjoyed horseback riding through a coffee plantation to a waterfall while the botanist enjoyed a trip to CATIE gardens. Together we were guided by Cesar and Chico to Irazu volcano and Guayabo... More

I was not expecting the hotel to be this amazing... Yes, it does look pretty in the pictures but once you're there you can truly see the level of detail and love they put into everything. The views are amazing, as you can see on the pictures, the gardens are very well taken care of. I highly recommend the food,... More
