My daughter and I stayed at Peace Lodge for 2 nights at the end of our 2 weeks in Costa Rica and were so glad we got to see this part of the country. The landscape and vistas are simply spectacular. There was a drastic temperature change from Manuel Antonio, where we had travelled from and the drive up the... More

This is a really nice place! You can stay in the hotel or just spend the day there. It has toucans, hummingbirds, jaguars, monkeys, frogs, snakes and beautiful waterfalls! It's a very nice place to hike! And the food in the restaurant is good too!!

Our experience of the peace lodge was very unique in that aspects were wonderful, certain members of the staff were exceptional, and dinners were exquisite. However, other aspects were truly horrendous...Unfortunately, the bad outweighed the good and we would not stay here again. The details... Rooms: - Pros... Visually beautiful, the showers and jacuzzi in the deluxe room were perhaps... More

Absolutely no denying the beautify of this place! We stayed here one night with the idea that we would like to be closer to San Jose for our flight out the next day and I'm glad we did! We didn't get to see as much wildlife as we would have liked during our trip, but the park at the hotel... More

No, not the Peace Lodge. The lodge is very conscious of coservation. ME. Just took a shower, but when I was clean, I just stayed in the shower. I couldn't pry myself out. At home in the states, three to four minutes. At the Peace Lodge fifteen minutes and might have to shower again before bedtime tonight. We were upgraded... More

Our daughter was married by the waterfalls last week. The staff from the front desk, the park, and restaurants were all kind, helpful, and friendly. It was a beautiful location for their wedding. The wedding planners were great! We also enjoyed the tours around the park. Our kids had fun feeding the monkeys and humming birds. I was impressed with... More

If you travel to Costa Rica, you should have romantic expectations of seeing wildlife, untouched nature and primeval jungle. However, animals hide professionally, the really wild forests are hardly accessible, and seeing smth really extraordinary requires too much time and luck. Imagine you are with the kids, looking forward seeing all the best in one journey?! Peace lodge is a... More

Where to begin??....We stayed at the Peace Lodge after staying at their sister property The Springs(5*) outside LaFortuna near the Arenal Volcano. We were blown away with this property and scenery. There is no over stated web site. What you see on their website is just if not even better in person. The staff is friendly and helpful. Everyone we... More

The blending of this unique lodge and nature park makes for a very enjoyable and entertaining stay. This is a small lodge with a staff dedicated to serving the visitor. It is small but classy - easily a five star lodge. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The rooms were large with balconies with great views. The large bathroom... More
