We recently spent a week's stay at Lodge Las Ranas and had an absolutely wonderful experience. On our first day we were greeted by seven howler monkeys swinging and eating from the big beautiful tree in front of our balcony. Speaking of which, the view from our balcony was spectacular, looking out at the jungle with an amazing view of... More

We stayed here 2 nights while traveling around Costa Rica. We enjoyed our stay very much in this beautiful setting. It is located on top of a hill 7 -8 minutes from Playa Samara, which was perfect for us as we are not into the party scene, it was very quiet here,also cooler than the beach. Felt secluded and safe... More

When traveling abroad one of the best things you can ask for is a clean safe hotel with warm, friendly staff members that want to help you explore and find your way around town. Mauricio kindly greeted us and made us feel at home. Assisting us with maps and transportation and making phone calls for us. From cabin 3, we... More

I really can't say enough wonderful things about this magical place. Beautiful location a bit out of town. Gorgeous property with a lovely pool, nice room with an iguana neighbor. Awesome breakfast and attentive staff. I loved the wildlife, town, beach and many restaurant options. When we left we felt we felt more like family here than just tourists.

My husband and I really enjoyed staying here. Like so many of the other places we stayed at, 4 wheel drive is highly recommended so you can make it through the dirt roads and up the hill to the lodge, as well as gps!! Even the main roads are not marked. The view at the top is worth it though... More

We arrive at the Hotel in the late afternoon and we were immediately greeted by a family of 5 monkeys hanging on the trees. At the front desk Maurice was waiting for us. He is the nicest hosts we met in Costa Rica. He introduce us to the property and the area - professional and friendly. After that we met... More

my sister, grandmother, and I recently stayed at Lodge Las Ranas and had a wonderful experience. Fairly simple but nice rooms with a beautiful balcony-- we saw SO many howler monkeys in the tree outside our room. The staff was very accommodating for my grandmother, who required a lot more assistance than me and my sister. They were very helpful... More

Paradise is via a couple of dirt roads out of town, but taxis will go there. If you rent a car, get a 4WD. Gorgeous location and views, international clientele, accomodating staff, super-clean; visits from various monkeys, iguanas, and tucans; beautiful flowers. Insider tip for couples: Rm 2 is the best! Wifi is strong near common areas, pool--none in our... More

Booked this last minute for a quick stop into Samara. The hosts were extremely welcoming and the hotel is on a beautiful hilltop overlooking the area. The rooms were cabin's style and incredibly clean and very modern. The pool was just perfect and breakfast was included to boot! The omelette was fantastic and the coffee just right. What more could... More

My friend and I stayed for a week over New Years, and our experience of Lodge Las Ranas couldn't have been better. The hotel is beautiful, well-decorated, and very clean and quiet. The owner and staff were incredibly gracious - friendly, helpful and accommodating on every level! It is a little bit outside of town which my friend and I... More
