(1) it rained and it POURED the entire time we were there (2) we got a groupon for this hotel so was reasonable (3) now the review begins: The marketing pictures are 100% accurate. I'm not posting pics b/c my camera broke and I need a new camera before I can access my memory card. Food - Breakfast is delicious... More

This is a very secluded, first rate resort with amazing views, plenty of hiking, animals to see, birds & butterflies& hummingbirds. It's entering and staying in a Sanctuary. Stunning rooms with fireplaces, jacuzzi on the balcony, waterfall shower and very natural & stunning decor. This is the place to be!

We've brought our family here twice-- we just can't get enough of the lovely grounds and deluxe accommodations. Fantastic, personalized service. Don't miss the hummingbird and toucan feedings-- you've never been so close! The waterfall hike is easy yet stunning.

What a beautiful property - it has a very natural feeling which is echoed from the grounds, the rooms, and the incredible waterfall hike which is not to be missed. The hike trail seems to dribble down the jungle's riverside so as to feel like you're truly immersed in the jungle while not disturbing the natural beauty. The rooms repeat... More

I am very impressed with the Peace Lodge. The hotel excels at multiple levels. First, the service is wonderful. I found the staff to be very polite and extremely helpful. Second, the rooms are exotic and impeccably clean. My "standard" room had a balcony with a view of the cloud forest, a Jacuzzi and hammock on the balcony, a garden... More

This place is a beautiful hotel. It is basically part zoo. We held and fed toucans, fed hummingbirds, released baby butterflies, saw felines being fed, and so many more fun things. Also, the rooms were incredible! We had 2 bath tubs, 2 showers, and the bathroom was like an indoor jungle. It had a waterfall and leaves with background lights!... More

This hotel is absolute luxury from the moment you walk into reception to the moment you leave the hotel. The people at reception take you around the hotel and give you a tour of the entire hotel. There is so many things to do at The Peace Lodge, such as feeding toucans in the Aviary, having a hummingbird eat out... More

We absolutely loved the Peace Lodge at La Paz. The rooms were one of a kind -- fireplaces, porches with a view of the mountains, and the bed was to die for. The resort has 5 waterfalls on a short hike and rescues wild life -- Jaguars (we saw the male and female fighting and then kissing), Toucan, and hummingbirds... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Monarch Villa. It was the best room I have ever stayed in. Huge bedroom, 2 jacuzzi tubs, 3 fireplaces, loft with another bathroom for the kids. The staff was great. We arrived before our room was ready, so they took our car keys and put all of our luggage in the room while we... More

This is an increible oasis...beautiful rooms (had Villa Lago) for our party of 5. It was like living in an area surrounded by waterfalls and zoo animals that you would get up close and personal with. Held and petted the exotic birds, hummingbirds, butterflies & held the hand of a monkey, to watching the tigers and snakes, etc. Very cool.... More
