As biologist and traveler I love spending time at a place where comfortable ecofiendly lodging and nature coexist. And this is defintely a place where nature embraces guests, and hosts embrace and protect nature. Surounded by water channels, and by forest, ther is not a minute to spare. Monkeys growling in the morning, frogs singing at night. Birds flying all... More

A stay here is about the experience!!! It’s a delight to wake in the morning to all the rain forest sounds, including the Howler monkeys!! Without glass in the windows this gives the feeling at being one with the surroundings. The rooms are basic, but clean. When you consider where you are the inclusive meals are a necessity, no frills... More

My stay was at the beginning of November so, still in the rainy season and, yes it did rain for two and a half out of the three days. Our party still went out and about seeing the wildlife and flora and we did make the most of the sunny half day. Evergreen Lodge (individual accommodation) is great and probably... More

The wildlife in and around this lodge is excellent. We saw monkeys, toucans, a caiman, an iguana and various frogs in the hotel grounds. It is about a 5 minute boat ride from Tortuguero town and about 3 hours from San Jose, via coach and the boat. The accommodation is very basic with few home comforts. The bathroom was very... More

This is a great place to stay,explore the jungle, and see the turtles. The accommodations are very comfortable and clean, although, as promised, they are basic. The howler monkeys are better than any alarm and probably more reliable, especially if you want to wake up at 4:30 AM. The staff, especially the guides, are wonderful--friendly and very knowledgeable. The food... More

Absolutely gorgeous setting in the Costa Rican jungle! We loved it here! Room was large and clean. Our bathroom was handicap accessible so it was very large too. Soap was provided but not shampoo (but the soap in the shower could most likely be used as both). No hair dryer in the bathroom but I asked for one at the... More

The Evergreen Lodge is located in the national park and can only be accessed by boat (they pick up the guests from the most common meetings points). First: This Lodge is big. The park around is very well maintained, they have three different restaurants (each guest is allocated to one of them, same food in all three), bungalows, rooms and... More

First time I've been to any rain forest lodge with a pool and two bars! I had fantastic two day stay ,however felt that more activities could be laid on rather than depending on the pool to keep us happy. Food lovely, staff brilliant, animals terrific! Rooms are brilliant with netting instead of glass so you are woken by the... More

Stayed 2 nights in late September. Enjoyed the boat ride to the lodge and also the return by boat. The lodge itself is very basic. Curtains on screens could have been bigger so they would cover the whole window without anyone being able to see in. Only complaint was no area in bathroom for hanging hand towel by sink and...

I felt a little railroaded, especially as I had planned what I wanted to do independently and had just come from the wonderful Selva Verde lodge in Sarapiqui. I wanted to do my own thing but we were organised into groups. I had a struggle with organising to do the things I wanted - its clear that they like ALL... More
