We stayed just one night in this beautiful resort, in a deluxe room. The surroundings were stunning - hillside rainforest coated in fluffy clouds, looking down upon the clear fishing lake. The room was very comfortable; quite a firm bed, a lovely little balcony and a HUGE bathroom. All themed in a fun, but not exactly the height of taste,... More

2 night stay at the Peace Lodge was well worth the price and effort to get to this amazing oasis between the rain and cloud forest of Costa Rica. The accommodations were beautiful with hand crafted wood work. The balcony was perfect for practicing yoga, drinking coffee, reading a book, with hammock and hot tub. The bed was perfectly comfortable,... More

OK, I can sum up this review in just one word – WOW! In case this reads like a commercial, it isn’t – it’s just the impression the Peace Lodge and Waterfall Gardens made on us. My wife was a little dubious before we arrived, thinking everything would be commercialized, like a ‘Disneyland in the rainforest’. No, the place is... More

I recently stayed at the Peace Lodge and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the moment we walked in the lobby, we were greeted with happy and professional faces who assisted us with our check in and showed us to our room. Their beautiful rooms have outdoor jacuzzis, a fireplace, amazing bathrooms with very unique waterfall type showers, and balconies... More

My wife and I enjoyed our views from our private balcony watching the clouds from the cloud forest roll in and out with a variety of exotic birds singing and flying nearby. Incredible waterfall bathroom with waterfall shower and spa tub. The breakfast buffet was delicious with too many things to try in one day. All very fresh. Three nights... More

This place has every detail covered. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, amazing accommodations and delicious food. We booked the night time frog tour. We took an early morning walk to see the animals while the they were active. This is the best place I've ever stayed at!!! It is worth every penny! The only potential drawback is lots of stairs....

My third trip to the peace lodge, service and photography wonderful as always. As always they hauled my photography equipment down the side of the mountain in their golf cart. Staff assisted in battery recharging and liquid for the hummingbirds.
