This hotel is beautiful with lush property, birds, iguanas and howler monkeys right outside. The food and service were perfect: fresh vegetables, fruits and rice and beans! There is water set out 24 hours and coffee. Really cool place - but not for people who do not appreciate night jungle sounds and a visit from an iguana.

Rain in February and not unexpected there were 6 or 8 umbrellas at every door.the paths at the Lodge were old cracked cement and the water on them was in places ankle deep. The rooms are... More

A beautiful hotel comprising groups of villas with views over the river, each with a terrace equipped with hammock and rocking chairs. Woken each day by the sound of howler monkeys. Grounds were magnificent and harboured a wide variety of birds and animals including toucans, sloths, iguanas and frogs, and the expert guides lead a variety of tours on the... More

This place is truly magical and was a highlight of our stay. Seeing the green turtles preparing their nests and laying eggs at midnight was a unique experience. The wildlife boat tour at 730am was tremendous, our guide Gustavo was exceptionally knowledgeable and a really nice, friendly guy. I recommend the village tour too. Our room gave the impression we...

My wife and I came here for part of our honeymoon. The place was beautiful and everything was taken care of for us, but in our case, the room isn't nearly as important as the people we meet and the things we get to do (we're not really sit by the pool kinds of people). On top of being a... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of our Caravan tour and it was a wonderful experience. The staff were so happy and helpful. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and showed you all kinds of wildlife. The rooms were very clean and fresh. The Howler monkeys were your early morning wake up call as there is no glass...

Sloths, caimans, crocs, toucans, monkies, butterflies, birds, etc. The lodge is very comfortable The cabins have tin roofs which are a bit noisy at night when... More

We spend 2 nights here as part of a Caravan Tour. This property is only accessible by boat or plane and is in the jungle. We arrived by boat after an amazing ride down the rivers and canals. We saw so much wildlife - sloths, monkeys, caimans, lots of birds and a nest of baby turtles rushing to the Atlantic.... More
