We were expecting an amazing room, which we received and loved. The grounds were extensive rain/cloud forest vegetation and flowers and were beautifully maintained. We did not expect the variety and size of the exhibits of birds, butterflies, hummingbirds, cats etc. The private tour we had of the grounds with Rafael explaining all that we saw and experienced just blew...

We were visiting Costa Rica again, this time in the southern parts of the country, however we could not resist a return visit to the Peace Lodge (which is north of San Jose). Even though it was out of our way, we just had to come back again for a grand finale to our trip. Our visit this time was... More

We were so excited to stay here after visiting a few years ago and it didn't disappoint!! From reception to the room to the service throughout our stay, everything was above and beyond! You have to have the massage by the fireplace in your room...they were amazing and got all of the kinks out from our day of travel. Couldn't... More

Let me start this review by saying, the owner of this place knows how to build and run a hotel! We spent our 40th wedding anniversary at the "sister hotel", The Springs, at Arenal...and we thought that was the best hotel we had ever been to.....but, now the Peace Lodge even tops that one! Our family of 6 adults, and... More

I recently stayed at the Peace Lodge for two nights with my family of 11 members - ages 14 to 83. We had 3 rooms: a regular room with a king bed, a 1 bedroom (king bed) with a loft (twin & queen) with 2 bathrooms - the Monarch Villa, and a 3 bedroom (2 bedrooms each with kings and... More

Waterfalls are insane, butterfly garden is wonderful, frogs and hummingbirds are super cool. The monkeys, macaws and wild cats are all kind of sad in small enclosures. Some of the cats were pacing back and forth in laps which is a sign of anxiety. Still very impressive to see them so close up. I just hope they really are rescues... More

The Peace Lodge is an amazing place! The accomodations, the location, the staff, the food were all oustanding. The accomodations were very clean and unique. The location was breath-taking because it is located on a national park with 3 waterfalls, trails, and amazing flora and fauna. We really enjoyed feeding the Tucans and Humming birds, and seeing the big cats,frogs,... More

Peace Lodge was absolutley amazing in every way! We couldnt wait to get up in the morning and see everything they had, to visit all the animals, and feeding the toucans was a definite highlight. We learned so much about each animal and it was the staff who took the time to teach us. We almost skipped the night tour... More

Had a great time at Peace Lodge. We went in November 2013. Great time to go to Costa Rica because there was nobody there. The kids fished for trout and it was cooked right after at their Grill. The kids had each of theirs cooked different ways and both were delicious. We did it again the next day. The wildlife... More

We returned a week ago from a four day stay at both the Peace Lodge and the sister property, The Springs (separate review). We had an absolutely wonderful time, and truth be told four days really wasn't enough to do all of the things we wanted to do in the area. Peace Lodge was everything I'd been told it would... More
