I think this may be my first time i give a 2 star review to any hotel. I should put in a disclaimer though, this area is very romote and only 18 lodges exist here, so while i really hope there are better lodges, i can't be sure, i didn't try any other ones around. Its important to understand that... More

We stayed here as part of our tour in CR, the rain was incessant, we couldn't have got wetter in the pool, having said that the lodge guides changed the programme to suit the weather, and it was sooo nice getting back to the lodge after a day out. The rooms were very simple but clean and comfortable, with a... More

As a solo traveler again i will try not to compare this lodge with the one i stayed in in Peru. The location was brilliant. I stayed here for 2 nights and i think that's enough. Not much else to see after that. The excursion through the waterways was excellent and the guides knew exactly where to take you to... More

We stayed 2 nights in Pachira as part of our Tortuguero visit to the park. The lodge is very nice and well equipped. The deal includes 3 meals a day and pre-booked tours. We very much enjoyed the turtle shaped pool and the nice and welcoming reception and dining room. The overall experience was very good, even though it was... More

Hotel is in middle of jungle and was reached via a hour and half boat trip! Lodges very good! Fan in room kept room cool! Showers adequate! One gripe no plug in sink! All inclusive meal package and the food was good and plentiful. Trips into the national parks amazing! Thunderstorms absolutely amazing!

This hotel in the middle of the jungle, right next to a big river, has to be one of the nicest locations for a hotel I've visited. Monkeys almost literally walk on your roof, and different species of reptiles and birds can be found if you look carefully. The facilities of the hotel were less impressive. No wifi in the... More

The service was wonderful and all planned trips were great as well! They feed u well here and my kids were well entertained throughout. Ronny did a great job seeing us thru from arrival to departure via... More

Our visit to Costa Rica started in this amazing lodge, and I couldn't have asked for a better start to our trip. The location is incredibly remote, so you get an all inclusive package; including lodging, meals, and activities. We started our trip in San Jose, and took a bus to the small little restaurant/shop next to the river where... More

The service staff and guides are friendly and attentive. Boating in to a lodge is a great experience. There were monkeys everywhere across the resort every day. The 3 free meals are spaced 5-6 hours apart and there's no extra food for sale or available at all during the day if you're the type who eats more often, so I... More

Visiting Costa Rica must include this area as nature is amazing. The location is remote and pachira offer a well organized package. Their 2 nights plan include everything you need to see in the area. The down sides should not prevent you from visiting with them as it looks that they are the leaders In the area and overall they... More
