If Costa Rica is not on your Bucket List, put it there - and if you are looking for a magnificent place to experience some of the best of it, book The Peace Lodge. It is about an hour and a half drive from San Jose, mostly uphill with winding roads tucked into the mountains of the rain forest, but... More

Staff was more than welcoming, every member you encountered during your stay was extremely friendly and helpfull. Rooms are above all expectations and very clean. The whole parc was full... More

This was by far the best place I ever stayed in. Friendly staff greeted us with a complimentary drink, the rooms were exquisite the atmosphere superb! The animals were awesome and the waterfalls magnificent . The villa we rented was something else.. Very well made, very luxurious! I can't wait to go back!

This was our second visit. We had to return with our children. They were so sad to leave. We highly recommend Peace Lodge for a few days while in Costa Rica. The animal encounters are awesome and the staff are so nice and friendly. Don't miss the night time frog tour with Heran. He is so funny and knowledgeable.

This was our splurge on our honeymoon through Costa Rica and it was absolutely worth every penny and will most definitely come back. Service was impeccable, staff was accommodating, food was spot on and I could not say enough of the room, the ambiance of the entire hotel, the experience itself is just out of this world. Thank you.

This was a Wonderful Family Vacation as soon as we arrived the staff greeted us with welcoming smiles and a personal tour of the property. The view from our room was breathtaking, not only could we see the pools we could also see the clouds passing through the mountains and trees. Our boys had a wonderful time fishing in the... More

The property is very impressive with beautiful flowers and views of the valley. There is an impressive series of waterfalls (4) and a small animal rescue area with many amazing animals. Probably the most exciting experience is the opportunity to feed hummingbirds by hand. The staff is extremely customer service oriented. The food was delicious. The rooms are very neat... More

Talk about romantic. We actually got married here, and there is nothing I would change about it. Our room was magnificent. We stayed two full days, and had a great time. The area is amazing, and the whole staff was friendly and super helpful. We had a private massage in our rooms by the fireplace with the balcony door open... More

This is truly an amazing place!! I would say it was the most magical place I ever stayed at. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, and the staff had a bottle of wine already in the room when we got there. So many nice touches, to your name in a wooded plaque on the door of your room,... More
