We stayed at the Lodge for a long weekend and it was impossible for us to take advantage of all the activities offered by the Lodge. It's all about nature and preserving it, from the self generated electricity to the carefully planned guided night walk everything is done with nature on it's mind. The staff was always helpful and did... More

My husband and I had a cabin, which was amazing -- monkeys and toucans all around. Our 2 teenagers were in a room in the lodge that wasn’t as “breezy” as ours, so they were not as happy with their room. We mainly hung out in our room or on the patio in the restaurant area. We all liked the... More

This is a great lodge. I would particularly recommend it to any family looking for a jungle experience with excellent food and very knowledgeable guides. The manager Sylvia is excellent and the staff are without exception polite, courteous and attentive.

We stayed at El Remanso for our wedding anniversary. It was a beautiful experience. The room was very comfortable with a nice mosquito net. The view from the room was very nice as well. But the best part of the trip were all the excursions to experience the wild life. We did lots of bird watching, walking in trails, at... More

Wake up to the calls of Howler monkeys, and tropical birds. Enjoy the excellent fresh local food, starting with a sumptuous breakfast. Go bird watching, or take a forest hike with a naturalist guide. Cross the suspension bridge, grab your helmet, and soar through the tree tops on a zip line ! Wrap up your day with a massage, or... More

For the past five Christmas holidays, my family has visited the Osa peninsula staying at various Eco resorts. El Remanso is now our go-to resort for many reasons. The accommodations are simple, but very adequate and we've always felt very comfortable. The owners and staff treat you like family, the food is gourmet, and there is always something for everyone's... More

This is our second trip to El Remanso and we can't wait to return a third time. Our family of four traveled to El Remanso the first week of June 2015 (last trip was end of Dec 2011) - this trip is the most favorite vacation spot for our family including our 19 year old daughter and 17 year old...

Quite possibly the best place I have ever stayed at. Ok, so your wife can't use a hair dryer and there is no TV....and that's all part of the sheer joy of staying here. Chef is a genius and the staff are all friends. If this place is an option for you, don't think twice..do it!! Listen to Howler monkeys... More

I chose El Remanso for the destination to celebrate my parent's 50th anniversary. We couldn't have asked for more. The cabins were almost like tree houses, the food was fantastic and the staff could not have been any lovelier. It had a fabulous number of trails, many quite challenging and the wildlife was everywhere! Their packages including activities were very... More
