The place is clean and the service is very nice and relaxing. I liked the rocking chairs outside the rooms. The rooms are made of wood so when if it rains at night (and it rained really hard on both nights I stayed) you may wake up from the sound of the rain on the roof. The food was disappointing... More

One must have limited expectations when staying in a national park, especially one focused on ecotourism and natural conservation. Thus, we accepted the plain beds, limited pillows and bedding, lack of a/c, and general rustic feel. It felt more like summer camp than a resort stay, and that was fine. Each set of cabins had a front porch with rocking... More

The Laguna Lodge is an excellent place to stay when visiting the Tortuguero National Park. The bungalows are nice and with all comfort on a large domain. The food is excellent and so is the bar. Restaurant and bar have a splendid view on the canal. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Enjoy the excursions by boat in the... More

Stayed here with my two sons (14 and 13). It's a beautiful location but that's really all I can say. The rooms are less than basic. No air conditioning. Twin beds with 1 pillow each. No TVs, clock radios, internet or even bedside lamps. They have bare Christmas tree bulbs with bark over the top. Everything is expensive. It was... More

While the grounds of this lodge are nicely maintained and the rooms were clean, they were very, very rustic. The sheets on the bed were incredibly old and scratchy. And that was all that was on the bed. You cannot close the windows, so any noise and cigarette smoke (which there was a lot of!) drifts right into your room!... More

Lovely grounds and very good food - plenty of choice and clearly labelled in English - restaurant service very good too. Amazing place - Tortuguero is only accessible by boat but the boat trips are excellent and afford wonderful views of the rainforest/mangrove wildlife. The rooms themselves perhaps a little basic and smaller than many in Costa Rica but perfectly... More

Beautiful restful place, grounds well maintained, dining area beautiful, enjoyed all three days, and every one was helpful and patient. Food was good, wouldn't say great, fruit was good - during out trip to CR had better - but considering everything comes by boat or plane they do a very good job.

I've never seen the Amazon river but the boat ride on the canal leading to the Laguna Lodge is what I imagine it would resemble. After an enjoyable ride, the canal opened to a large lagoon and we proceeded to the Laguna dock. The welcome drink offered really hit the spot. After a brief orientation, we checked into our room....

Everything about the place, from pick up at Cano Blanco to drop off on the third day was just lovely. The place maintains a relaxed air while keeping a high level of professionalism. Food is of a good standard, both tasty and healthy, and served buffet style. The cocktails shouldn't be missed and are well priced given the generous measures.... More

We spent 4 days at Laguna Lodge in January.It is superbly situated on the water's edge and access is only by boat. The lodge is very well organised and the staff cheerful and helpful..particulary the restaurant staff. Food was good , the bedrooms large, clean and basic but OK. We even had a small boa constrictor to welcome us on... More
