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.

At star mountain, leave the real world behind and get lost in the middle of a lush jungle, howling monkeys, spotted butterflies and horses. It's a little secret paradise. The accommodations are super quaint and very family friendly and romantic

My son arranged this family trip for us so I really had no idea what I was in for. I couldn't have been more pleased and excited to actually live in the jungle for a week. Star Mountain Jungle Resort is beautiful and the accommodations comfortable…You are rarely in your room because you want to take in the beauty of... More

We went with our two teenage girls looking for a truly Costa Rican experience and have found it at Star Mountain Jungle Lodge. We definitely had chosen the best place for 12 nights. The staff was extremely helpful. Breakfast was great and plenty of fresh fruits and coffee. A 4x4 vehicle is recommended throughout the Peninsula but the drive up... More

If you want to truly decompress and "get away from it all" you'd be hard pressed to find a better place in Costa Rica, (or the planet for that matter). One look at the nighttime sky and you'll know instantly where the lodge earned it's name. The most vivid and beautiful stars imaginable. Fall asleep to the sounds of the... More

My husband and I have visited Costa Rica 6 times traveling the country every visit. Having stayed at over 13 hotels throughout CR I can passionately say that this is by far the top of the chart, away from it all, in the jungle retreat we have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. We could have stayed on the main... More
