The stuff is great. Rooms are clean and safe. Everything surrounded by nature and water. Tours through channels let you breathless. Wild animals are seen for sure. The food is terrific, buffet style as much as you can eat. Every meal is served fresh and tasty. The pool is too small for those who like to swim along. I've visited... More

The room was fine and the grounds well cared for, but we found the food very bland and boring. But we came to see wildlife, and for our first afternoon were dropped in Tortuguero town and left to our own devices. We had a 2 hour early morning tour, which could have been good but the weather was against us,... More

You must not expect a good night's sleep as the forest is SO noisy, especially if it rains!! But great location and super tours available on the canals with knowledgeable guides. Food was adequate and service haphazard. Wifi free around reception, paid in rooms. No safe deposit boxes but can leave valuables at reception. Tea/coffee station free outside restaurant

We returned to the Pachira lodge after 10 years - we had visited in 2004 and greatly enjoyed. Well - like everything, things change - for the good or for the bad. Let's start with the transfer to Tortuguero, part of the package. It happens by bus from San Jose, via the Brauillo Carillo cloud forest and... cloud forest it... More

We stayed for 2 nights in December 2014 as a couple, and loved it here. Animals everywhere, great pool, and fantastic views over the river. You will be woken up early by the howler monkeys, but take advantage of the early start to walk around the resort to see sloths, monkeys, toucans and more. Food was included throughout and was...

We were very happy with the choice for this lodge. Good food, good rooms and beautiful swimming pool. The rooms are situated in beautiful surroundings with lots of animals. Only minus was the grumpy bartender of the poolbar.

We stayed for two nights and overall the experience was good. We had an all inclusive package. We were picked up from our hotel in San Jose and dropped back to Guapiles to continue our trip in Costa Rica. Our guide Rony for the 2 days was very informative and friendly. We couldn"t spot many animals as it is the... More

The location and arrangement of the hotel in the middle of Tortugeuro nature reserve is a special experience . The rooms are within walking distance from reception and restaurant but if there id rain which can happen suddenly you need an umbrela which is provided by the hotel. The rooms are simple but big and convenient . The restaurant is... More

We stayed three nights at Pachira and had a great time. You had a lot of animals just around the bungalows. For example monkeys, slot, iguanas, the green macaw and many more. The room was rather big and has everything you need. But the outside doesn't really invited you to sit there. Rather narrow and close to neighbors. There were... More
