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... More

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

Stayed 2 nights in August. That is one of the rainiest months of the year here in a rain forest. Still it was a great experience. Rain shortened one afternoon's tour but otherwise we did everything on our tour itinerary. It is prime time then for sea turtles to lay eggs. It cost extra but worth it. Saw probably a... More

Big rooms and bathrooms. No glass windows, just screens to make you feel like you are part of the outdoors. Tons of colorful crabs. Great pool, food and bar. The rooms were clean and the internet was far enough away so we werent able to sit on our phones.

We booked with Evergreen Lodge por a two days and two nights pack. The grounds are very nice and you're close to nature, we've been able to see there lots of white face monkeys (really close to us in the table of the restaurant, grabbing some sugar), spider monkeys in the trees over the swimming pool, howler monkeys could be...

Overall nice hotel in the jungle, with big rooms. Limited wifi. Better buffet food than we expected. Lots of rain, rainforest after all, limited options and expeditions. We paid extra for the turtle viewing which was worth it. Typical level of mosquitoes. Again comparing to similar hotels in belize and peru, fewer hiking and animal viewing options.

Very nice hotel in the green forest a few minutes by boat to the national park of Tortuguero. The hotel is nicely integrated with the forest. the rooms are clean but comfort is basic as it wants to give you the closest feeling of living in the forest. No phone orTV on the room, only internet at the reception desk... More

My recent visit to Costa Rica included two nights at the Evergreen Lodge. Each room is like an open little house the beds are comfortable and clean, the bathroom is private, but much of the structure is simply open with screens allowing all of the sights and sounds of Tortuguero in for a full experience. The grounds are beautifully maintained... More

The place is suitable for visiting the channels and turtles. Food is included, and it is average. It is not a luxury hotel, but has basic services and its in the middle of the jungle. Short excursions are available upon request.

Just returned from family holiday and Evergreen was our first hotel on the tour. A fantastic start - right from getting in the boat to travel up the canals, to arriving in the forest, woken by monkeys and other jungle noises. Husband was worried about the mesh windows, but no bugs came in and it made it a unique experience.... More
