We spend 2 nights at this hotel as part of a Tortuguero package out of San Jose. Our guide Alex who picked us up with the bus in SJ stayed with us the entire time and accompanied us on all excursions - it was nice to have one contact for the whole 3 days. We were a family of 4... More

Our room was good, the food very tasty, and the general atmosphere nice but the highlight of the experience was our tour guide Javier. He led us on several trips/excursions in the area and we were very impressed with his knowledge, communication skills, organisation, and enthusiasm.

I stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were clean and simple. The windows are screens with shutters and provide ventilation, but do not help with noisy neighbors (which is my only complaint). There is no AC but the fan is powerful! The grounds were beautiful, the pools were gorgeous, and the beach is lovely but you can't swim due... More

We loved our jungle experience: being so close to so many animals and plants. The lodge itself gives you everything you need for a couple of days. Clean room and pool. The food is good for buffet style and drinks are avaliable at the bar throughout the day. Set times for meals though which we didn't know on the first... More

We stayed three days and two nights at the Lodge as part of Francesca s River Boat Tours. The Lodge is rustic and feels very authentic. The grounds are well maintained and the staff were pretty nice. The buffet style food was good but not excellent. The entrée choices were limited. I thought the breakfast hours could be expanded as... More

We booked this trip through Expedia, neither that website, or the Lodge website was clear in letting us know that this Lodge is All inclusive. Please note: it's not recommended that you swim in the sea here, too rough. Black volcanic ash/sand looks cool though. Included in the cost is: - Pick Up & Drop off from San Jose, but... 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
