Really loved this place. The garden is amazing with lots of wildlife around including re eye frogs. The food was the best I had in Costa rica 3 meals always great quality and spacious seating area. It's close to the local town just a short walk in the shade ( about 20-30 ). Minutes walk. The town itself was a... More

A rustic lodge in the rain forest. Good food and services. Not a 5 Star but your should not expect that is a remote rain forest. Stay included tours of the rain forest, food and transportation. Scenery was excellent and a good example of Eco Tourism.

A very beautiful lodge, a wonderful place to stay. Accommodation has everything. Rooms are not superior but good enough (you're not in acity!!) . Restaurant (buffet) is good. Bar oké, could use more and better servants. It takes a while before you have your drinks. While waiting you have a beautiful view on the river.

What an awesome way to begin our trip to Costa Rica! We (our group of 8 travelers) had an awesome time at Laguna Lodge, especially enjoyed our guide Alvaro Sanchez--AKA "Big Al". Our travel from Sacramento, CA to San Jose, Costa Rica was a bit challenging, after the Turrialba Volcano eruption closed the airport and we took an unexpected trip... More

Accommodation is basic but fine. Bar, pools and grounds are very good. Guided trips are very good with great guides. Food is very basic with canteen-style service. We stayed for thee nights and felt that everything is geared up for two-night stays. Tours and menu change on a two day cycle with nothing different suggested for our third day.

You need to arrive by boat to get to this remote local, but it is indeed a great treat, and I had the bonus of being with my three new friends, the Boeing Babes and The Nids. The lodge was a little too "lodgy" for my taste. It makes you feel like you are at an adult summer camp, but... More

If you see tourism as a business, this is where you go. This is a huge lodge with lots and lots of people. The rooms are in wooden houses, with a balcony where people walk on. Because the windows have no glass in them, it sounds like they are walking into your room. There were lots of great birds, frogs,... More

This is truly a lodge, not an upscale hotel, but it is totally appropriate for the setting in which you will find yourself. There are 4 room in each "mini lodge", all with a front porch and 2 comfortable rocking chairs for relaxing. The rooms are rustic, comfortable and have a fan for cooling. The showers are great - but... More

One goes there with the expectation to see the turtles, most people do not get that lucky, and they were clear to let me know this. Nonetheless the nature was amazing, birds, monkeys, reptiles, amazing. The experience started with bus ride from San José, then on to a one hour boat ride where we got to see many animals, even...

We spent 2 nights at Laguna Lodge whilst visiting Tortuguero. The boat ride to the lodge was a great introduction to the national park. The standard rooms at the Lodge are comfortable and have all the basics but did we did feel that the rows of chalets somewhat resembled an upmarket holiday camp. This theme was carried through to the... More
