We stayed here two nights. The rooms are OK , as well as the restaurant and the food (buffet style). The staff was also just OK , except for the guide who did a perfect job. But on the other hand : perfectly located in the park , nice excursions , you can see wildlife on the premises (lizzards ,... More

Loved staying at this lodge built in the rain forest and close to the ocean. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are basic but clean and the shower worked well. Lovely gardens and swimming pool to relax in. We enjoyed the boat trips to view the wildlife, we went twice and both trips were different and saw... More

Ok, great staff. Food is ok. Some will not like it though. It is what it is. You are in the middle of a rain forest. You will get wet. As others noted, it's hard to dry out at times. I can't give any place without AC 5 stars, but it was not crazy hot and sleeping was actually fine.... More

My husband and I stayed at Laguna Lodge for 3 nights which seemed like the perfect amount of time as the excursions are planned over 3 days. Getting there was fun, it was about a 2 1/2 hour bus ride from San Jose followed by an hour long boat ride on the river. The only 2 ways to get to... More

We were in Costa Rica for a week and our time at Laguna Lodge was definitely our favorite. I went with my mom and sister and we had SO much fun here, and learned a lot too. It is a rustic experience, but we loved it and they had everything that we needed. Laguna Lodge is right in the middle... More

Spent two incredible nights at the resort with my two daughters. We had the best guide, Carlos, who made our trip most memorable. He had so much knowledge about the forest and the entire area, in general. Our boat captain was Johnny and he spotted the wildlife of the forest for us. The lodging was rustic, but very clean. We...

If you are looking for a semi-rustic resort with no AC, Laguna Lodge is perfect. While the climate is obviously hot and humid, they have adequate fans in the rooms to keep you as cool as possible. Food and service is outstanding and our kids really enjoyed the pool. Be prepared for the climate but a great way to visit... More

The best part about our stay here was our guide Randall! Funny, helpful, well-organized, great tour guide! And Primo, our boat captain, truly has an "eagle eye," when it comes to spotting the wildlife. Our boat tour of the national park was incredible. We saw howler monkeys, toucans, caymans, and much more that I can't remember! Our room was comfortable.... More
