As I checked into the peace lodge I noticed the mission statement 'highlighting its goal to provide a unique accommodation experience that offers both luxury and tranquility with nature'. This goal is certainly lived up too as we had a truly unique experience, nothing liked I have previously or since. Firstly I have to start by talking about the location,... More

We stayed her two nights before returning to the USA and definitely could have stayed longer. The rooms and the location are incredible, but it was the service that really made a difference. The guides in the park area are very knowledgeable and help you interact with the animals in a manner that is caring towards the animals but ensured... More

We spent 2 wonderful nights here, arriving midday on a Monday and leaving early Wednesday morning. Because we booked late, we had 1 night in the Monarch Villa and 1 night in a Deluxe Room. They made the move super easy and it was nice to get to experience 2 different rooms! The Monarch Villa is huge -- there were... More

Immersed in the rain forest the Peace Lodge is a magical experience with gorgeous rooms with balconies overlooking magnificent green landscape. The property is terrific, multi terraced. The waterfall is a wonderful experience. The staff is very attentive. Check out the interior photos of the rooms and of the property..

As the other reviewers have said, this is an amazing place. Each employee goes above and beyond their job descriptions. They all speak wonderfully clear English. They are extremely caring and want to accommodate your every need. We have a daughter who is allergic to gluten and they did all they could to accommodate her needs. The rooms are so... More

We had the BEST time at the Peace Lodge. Our boys are 2.5 and 5 and it was wonderful for them and for my husband-who really enjoyed Fly fishing in the trout lake. The room was beautiful and exotic as well. The biggest bathroom with real foliage and a waterfall! Two showers one we called the cave and the other... More

GREAT PLACE. Staff everywhere was amazing and friendly. Rooms really big with a super fun bathroom...kids loved it. the grounds were amazing to hike (you can do the hike without a guide easily). We had a ton of fun fishing in the pond and seeing all of the animals up close. 2-3 days was perfect if you want to add... More

This is an expensive stop, no doubt about that. But relative to what you get in North America for 300$, it is totally worth it. The rooms are amazing with a cascade in each of them and 2 hot tubs. You also get access to the hummingbird feeding zoo, which is quite an experience for the kids (and the parents)... More

We spent a night up here for our anniversary and loved it, we wished we had more time to enjoy it. The rooms are luxurious and clean while at the same time providing you with that 'lodge' type atmosphere. It's a great mix of modern amenities and creature comforts. Big king sized canopy bed, fire place with rocking bench, flat... More

The resort is beaufiful and the rooms are lovely. The service at the restaurant was top-notch, although the front desk staff was only 4 star (not 5). The waterfall gardens has animals and plants and was a great way to spend the afternoon. The rooms have fireplaces and hot tubs in them and are beautiful.
