Beautiful yes, unsafe YES. I almost had my eye taken out by a ocelot. The animals are WAY too close and you are not protected. After a trip to another town to have 4 stitches taken in my eyelid, the lodge would take no responsibility. PLEASE, PLEASE THINK TWICE ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE SMALL CHILDREN.

Definitely the highlight of our trip o Costa Rica. Also the favourite in the country of our well travelled tour guide Paul in Manuel Antonio - must be good! Stunning rooms, balcony, bathroom - gorgeous view as well. Great help from reception, and the wildlife park is lovely too to enjoy whenever - toucans and hummingbirds were a particular favourite...

I stayed at the Peace Lodge with my wife and three kids, ages 17, 15, and 13. We all agree that this is one of the best places we have ever been. It is very unique and yes peaceful (while still being a lot of fun). Upon arrival, we fished in the lake stocked with trout. (More like shooting fish... More

We did not stay at the hotel but toured the waterfall garden portion. The tour alone was awesome! We saw birds, the most beautiful butterflies (including some metamorphosizing), hummingbirds, snakes (safely in captivity), frogs, and jungle cats....including three baby jaguars! They have an live ox cart set up and a typical house serving local snacks. The hike to all the... More

One of the most beautiful places we have ever been! Customer service was amazing and the rooms were breathtaking! The guide even bated the fishing poles for my husband..we caught our own fish and they prepared it for dinner. Truly incredible!

This place is incredible. The rooms are shockingly beautiful. We stayed in the monarch villa- the fireplaces, the outdoor jacuzzi, the canopy bed- it was almost too much to take in. The animals and the waterfalls on property provide plenty to do. Loved the dinner restaurant. The service was so personal. We stayed at The Springs Resort for 4 nights... More

This is a totally unique hotel. Upon arrival our name was on the room in block letters to welcome us. The view is amazing. The room has a cozy feel, with a fireplace, and a bed with a tent. The bathroom has waterfalls and a sunken stone jacuzzi. It is made of stone, and a nature ambience is achieved. The... More

Our family of 2 adults, 2 children (10 and 8) stayed at the Peace Lodge for our first night in Costa Rica. I will review Peace Lodge (accomondations) separately from Waterfall Gardens. Once you get there it is beautiful but if you get carsick - be prepared. It is a rough ride from the airport to the property. We stayed... More

This hotel was AMAZING!!! The rooms are an unexpected surprise! I never knew, until our stay here, that rustic could also be luxurious. The views are breathtaking! No need to leave the premises - so many activities and attractions available at no cost including The butterfly aviary and hummingbird feeding, both of which were magical experiences.
