The bungalows, though simple, are excotically set in a rain forest jungle, dense and green and very much teeming with life. No need to go far for your own little safari - that's for sure! Staying here is truly amazing, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The amenities are simple, but the food served is tasty and the family who runs the place... More

All my thanks go to Alejandro, a local guy who was working at the resort doing a bit of everything. Extremely sweet and available, it was so nice to have him around. One morning we went on an a excursion really early and he packed breakfast for us. He also spent a lot of time with us giving us recommendations... More

Loved it here, we had an awesome treehouse and saw animals we didn't see elsewhere which was exciting. We slept in a treehouse and had a bathroom with a huge shower, five of us had no problems with the accommodations and enjoyed sitting on the deck with a bench, chairs and hammock. Great staff, very friendly and gave us coffee,... More

Found this place without a reservation. They were most accommodating. What gem. Slept 5 in a two story cabina. We all loved it! Super fun bathroom that reminded of the Flintstones movie! Fun! Beautiful plants everywhere you looked! Woke to howler monkeys in the trees. Saw animals that in 8 years in Costa Rica we had never seen. Very nice... More

We wanted very much to like Tierra de Suenos Lodge, but it was a bit of a disappointment. When we FINALLY found it (due to the miniscule sign) the first surprise was the tiny gravel parking lot, which made us feel we were in the wrong place. We headed in to sign up, and they only had a single key... More

We stayed here for three days. The bungalow was perfect, it was 2 stories high And not that big. There is a nice bathroom and is clean inside. The breakfast is prepared everyday fresh. It is on walking distance from a small supermarket And the beach. the owners and the people that work there are very nice people.

We made reservations 2.5 months in advance, clearly explaining that we are 2 couples with 2 small kids each. We were told that there are 2 nice large cabanas that will be a good fit for us. When we arrived at 11pm with sleeping kids, we were shocked to discover that one of the cabanas had 2 floors, the entry... More

I loved staying at Tierra se Suenos. Anna and Christian, at the front desk, were terrific. We had a great time. The reason I haven't given the highest marks are because of expectations. First, the hotel listed a rate on their site, but when I booked, they quoted a rate that was $20/night higher. They refused to honor their website... More

Great property in the jungle, but not too far from the beach in Playa Chaquita. A little pricy for being so far from town but still worth it. Great breakfast. Wi-Fi available only at check-in/breakfast area. Our villa was right next door to a private house, so we were woken early to the sounds of them showering, doing construction, etc.

Hello there, Thanks for the feedback. Happy to hear you enjoyed the beach, we think it's beautiful! It is semi difficult to keep noise out when the you need screens for the heat and airflow. We are friendly with the neighbours and at times do remind them that we have guests. Thanks again! Pura Vida Tierra De Suenos More

We stayed here as part of our Costa Rican Honeymoon. The place is just south of Town and right next door to the Beach. My wife was excited to hear howler monkeys as we walked up to our Bungalow.
