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

We ended our Costa Rican honeymoon in luxury here at the Peace Lodge! This is an amazing and unique experience. Our room was beautiful and the bathroom was really special! Every single detail was special. The owner left us a bottle of wine and a lovely note congratulating us on our wedding. The hotel grounds are huge and spectacular. We... 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. Catching your own dinner... More

My husband and I stayed at Peace Lodge for 2 nights at the end of June for my belated 30th birthday celebration. This place is amazing! From the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out, everything was perfect. We were there during rainy season, so it was overcast and wet for most of our stay but the... More

This was our first stop in costa rica and a perfect one to rest and see so much at your doorstep. First the rooms are lovely but the bathroom are spectacular. Never had 2 showers one like a cave and a jacuzzi/waterfall in a bathroom before. So fun exploring all the wildlife that is literally steps away from you. Fun... More

Our family of four (two kids aged 12) stayed here for 2 nights and none of us wanted to leave. The rooms are rustic and huge--indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, a gas fireplace, and a four-poster bed. The views of the rainforest and the sounds of the waterfalls and animals make for a relaxing backdrop. We had a guided tour of... More

The rooms, the service, the waterfalls, the baby jaguars...We want to thank the staff who really came through when our second hotel cancelled on us unexpectedly due to the rain storms. They welcomed us back to the Peace Lodge, checked... More

Such a relaxing place to start our honeymoon. We loved seeing all of the wildlife and hiking the waterfalls. The accommodations are awesome--there was a waterfall in the bathroom--and we really enjoyed our meals there. The staff was also very accommodating and friendly. Highly recommend!

This is the 2nd time that we have visited Peace Lodge with our kids (ages 9 and 11) - they were really looking forward to their return. The property has so much to see as an animal refuge. The waterfall hike is a must (only 30 to 45 minutes). We also found the frog tour very interesting. Highly recommend!
