I went to Costa Rica with my wife and 2 boys. We stayed at Star Mountain Jungle Lodge and it was amazing. The views there are breathtaking and my whole family loved it. Eating breakfast in the open lodge was one of my favorites thing to do. We can't wait to go back!

Great spot for decompressing, enjoying nature, or checking out the wildlife. I had the time of my life, and want to return again next year. If you ever need a getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, definitely check out Star Mountain. You won't regret your decision.

Words can't describe this epic getaway. Set back from the busier town, but close enough to quickly hit the beach, a secluded jungle paradise that makes you question whether you could ever leave! I spent my morning, not by my lonesome, but instead by the pool with dozens of monkeys jumping around in the trees. If your looking for an... More

As we said we would, we did return to Star Mountain one year later. Last year we had the best time of our trip at Star Mountain, in fact this resort is by far the best place we have ever stayed at having traveled Costa Rica 7 times. When we returned this visit Pia the manager and Osvaldo the groundskeeper... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Star Mountain Lodge. We first talked with the owner, Andrew, who was so accommodating with our plans. When we arrived we were met by Pia, the manager of the hotel. Wow, what a great manager and person. We found a new friend with Pia. Maritza and Oswaldo were also very... More

My wife and I stayed at Star Mountain spending 7 nights here in the last week of January. By the end of the week, we decided it was the best week's holiday we have ever had - no exaggeration. We can recommend it for many different reasons. Generous and warm hospitality, Pia and her team could not have been kinder... More

Our family spent 6 nights at Star Mountain and we loved every minute. Calm, clean and great service. Beautiful place, hidden in the jungle with nice poolarea. Perfect for families with kids. The only negative part is that you must have a car (4X4) to access the lodge. Only breakfast is served, but there are a number of nice restaurants... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a couple nights. It is an amazing place set back in a private location. The hosts are all very outgoing and kind. It is only a several minute drive to Mal Pais without all the traffic and people. It is definitely my favorite place in the area.
