It's not just a resort, it's an experience. I wish we had more time at the property. The personalized touches, superb service and amazing views made this one of the best vacations I've ever been on. Set within a cloud forest we were able to enjoy the hot tub on our patio while watching the clouds transition. The onsite garden... More

We were enchanted by the service, the beautiful 3 bedroom villa, the food, the bar and pool area, the natural environment, and the amazing wildlife resources available to us at La Paz Waterfall Gardens. We have been many lovely places around the world, but this is truly unique in terms of having something for all ages and being able to... More

If you are traveling to Costa Rica and you want to really experience the rainforest / jungle in a magical, authentic setting, then you don't want to miss the Peace Lodge. It's set into the mountain overlooking Poas volcano with the sights sounds of the jungle. Beautiful foliage and vegetation surround the resort of only 18 rooms making it an... More

We just checked out today and already miss the hotel and staff. I have never stayed in a hotel that every member of the staff made you feel so special and appreciated. I miss you Daniel, DaVid, Giovanni, Melvin, the adorable room service gentleman, and everyone else that we met. This hotel is an experience of a lifetime. We went... More

I have stayed at Peace Lodge several times over the past 8 years. Shortly after the big earthquake, the resort didn't quite have the impact as it did before. I stayed last year and the hotel had improved to almost it's former glory. This time I took a quick one night getaway from San Jose, and I could not be... More

We arrived at the Peace Lodge, La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Costa Rica on Tuesday Dec 30th 2014 and stayed for the 3 day maximum allowable stay. We had previously visited the Peace Lodge several years ago and can report that the resort is as impressive as ever. In terms of location it’s easy enough to find with a GPS and... More

I am writing this review to help and inform others that the Peace Lodge does have some issues. The location is amazing and the staff great but, the food is pretty bad for such a nice place. Also it does rain alot there and it does get chilly at night. So, this is not the hot and humid Costa Rica.... More

This is absolutely a breath taking resort... I was there from Dec 4 - 8, 2014. Considered a rainy season and it was because it I was picked up from the airport by a driver arranged by the resort. Its $75/trip to and from airport. The driver spoke excellent English, and explained all about CR. Vey knowledgable and knows his... More

We stayed for one night at the villa lago. Wonderfull room, very good diner and very luxurious room. We wish we booked one more night. Outstanding breakfast with little beautiful colourful birds. Only minus is the many steps which are really slippery.

We stayed over New Year's for 3 nights, which was probably one night too long. We drove from Arenal to the Peace Lodge, and the last few miles were quite scary, up a steep and winding road on the edge of the mountain (although it was past a beautiful waterfall). The hotel is very pretty, with many wood cabin type... More
