After reading all the wonderful reviews on this place, couldn't resist staying here. Truly wasn't disappointed as everything was first class! Our room was fantastic and probably the nicest we ever stayed in. Who could resist a waterfall shower and the two hot tubs and even a second shower as well as a beautiful swimming area with even another hot... More

Peace Lodge was our first and probably most beautiful stop during our CR trip. We were greeted with a beautiful room, the property is insanely beautiful, boasting its own jungle like safari with monkeys, jaguars, Pumas, cows, etc. The hike down the various waterfalls behind the property was so beautiful, and they delivered a PITCHER of ICE COLD coffee upon...

This place is beautiful and the bathrooms are outstanding. However, we paid in advance for a king canopy room and we were put in a room with 2 doubles without explanation or apology. The waterfall and garden tours are beautiful as was the wildlife tour. We opted for the private guide and it was well worth the personal experience, I... More

We came to the hotel for our first night in Costa Rica and we felt " this must be how paradise looks". It was raining the entire time ( they supplied huge umbrellas) but we could see the view of the park from our balcony. The rooms were amazing, nicely decorated, huge bad, fire place,coffee machine jacuzzi in the balcony,... More

The La Paz Peace Lodge is a great place, but be careful near the Ocelot cage. On Sunday, March 12, 2015 one of the two ocelots reached his paw out at me while I was extending my arm closer to the cage bars to take a photo (I won't do that again!!). One minute later the same ocelot reached out... More

Dear kaysquaredmcg Thank you for posting a review of our property. We are sorry you had an unfortunate experience with our Ocelot and happy you were not injured. Our jungle cats are all rescued "wild" animals and not the pets that they may appear to be. This is why we have extensive signage posted, warning our valued guests not to... More

This fabulous "Lodge" was absolutely breathtaking ! I thought the Grand Wieleia in Hawaii was over the top but this surpasses it . We were there for just two nights but made good use of our time. It rained the entire time but that doesn't stop you from doing everything it has to offer. The staff is wonderful ! They... More

First let me say ignore any negative reviews of the Peace Lodge. I read the limited negative reviews and those people are crazy. The weather was beautiful every day of our stay but had it been raining, I would still be in awe of this beautiful place. I want to start off with the staff. A staff can make or... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Peace Lodge, and I don't even know where to begin. This place is AMAZING! From the location, rooms, restaurants, and the most important, the staff.

This is our 7th visit to the Peace Lodge. As you can imagine, we love the place. We have spent 7 winters in Costa Rica and visit this place every time. Just the ride up is an experience.
