Talk about romantic. We actually got married here, and there is nothing I would change about it. Our room was magnificent. We stayed two full days, and had a great time. The area is amazing, and the whole staff was friendly and super helpful. We had a private massage in our rooms by the fireplace with the balcony door open... More

This is truly an amazing place!! I would say it was the most magical place I ever stayed at. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, and the staff had a bottle of wine already in the room when we got there. So many nice touches, to your name in a wooded plaque on the door of your room,... More

This is the sister property to The Springs, which I reviewed as well. This property is much smaller and more rustic, but no less luxurious than The Springs. The real treat here is the amazing flowers and delightful hummingbirds that feasted on our balcony (for the Deluxe Villa rooms) which also features a jacuzzi tub. The bathroom, which features waterfall... More

This is almost weird, but this hotel reminded me of the Flintstones village in the old cartoon. Anyone that has been here would chuckle at this, but everything is first rate - the bathroom is unbelievable, there is a hot tub on every deck, and it is right in the middle of the rainforest, so the hot tubs are perfect...

There is no words for the bathroom in this place. There are three areas to get clean not counting the two sinks. There is also a tub jacuzzi on your deck. Which was perfect at night with a glass of wine. The deck is so nice. We had an upper room and a deluxe room so don't know if it... More

We stayed here the last night of our trip, and on the one hand, I wish we stayed more than one night but on the other hand, I was glad to have some more authentic costa rican experiences as well. This place is lovely, the foods is good, the rooms are gorgeous, and it is in the middle of a... More

We stayed at the Peace Lodge on Saturday, June 28th. What an amazing experience!! The room was fantastic! From the shower waterfall, to the fireplace, and finally the hot tub on the deck, we couldn't ask for more! Every staff member we came into contact with treated us like royalty! Pablo showed us around with great charm, and Harlem made... More

This boutique rainforest lodge has the most unique guest rooms and the most spectacular mountain views. Peace Lodge is on the tourist route from San Jose to Arenal and is ideal for your first few nights or last few nights as it is close to the San Jose Airport (less than one hour drive). Every guest room boasts a Jacuzzi tub and stone fireplace along with showers that transform into waterfalls with the turn of a knob. The ultra-upscale accommodations are uniquely themed to complement the inherent beauty of their rain forest setting. Guests can feed toucans and hummingbirds by hand, release butterflies into their first flight, look straight into the eyes of a jaguar, or closely observe the brilliant colors of a red eyed leaf frog. ... more   less
