We spent four nights in La Vainilla Cabin at El Remanso Resort in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica and had an absolutely fantastic time. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Everyone learned our names on our first day there and called us by name throughout our stay. We mentioned to management that I am diabetic when we made... More

We had such a fabulous time last year we decided to finish this years trip to Costa Rica (all other places different to last year) with our dream destination - and we were as blown away as before. For us this is paradise, you are not merely observers but become immersed in a magnificent cocoon of nature and are cosseted... More

This was our second trip to Costa Rica. While we thoroughly enjoyed our first trip, this was the only place we chose to go back to. Everything about El Remanso is outstanding. The setting, the accommodations, the food, the commitment of the owners to the animals and the environment. It was the high point of both trips. We took the... More

My wife and I recently spent an incredible 5 nights at El Remanso. I was determined to return to the Osa Peninsula after having visited briefly during a month long stay in Dominical 7 years ago. The scenery was just so breathtaking! After some online research my wife and I decided to stay at El Remanso for our vacation, and... More

My wife chose the El Romanso Lodge in the Osa Peninsula as the spot to celebrate her 50th birthday. We were not disappointed with her choice. Spending time in the rainforest is one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. The El Romanso staff were over the top in ensuring all went well for us. Waterfall rappelling, day and... More

As incredible as the reviews are, it's all true. El Remanso is magical. If you are even considering going, just go. Our two children, 12 and 14, were entranced. We could only stay three nights, but a fourth would have been perfect. We had two nights in a magnificent deluxe room, but we moved to a cabin on the third... More

El Remanso is really a spectacular experience. It is situated in the middle of pristine rainforest sloping down to what must be one of the most beautiful isolated beaches in the world. The wildlife is richly abundant. We observed a stunning diversity of bird, reptile and mammal species. The guides are deeply knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and really... More

My wife and I just returned home from El Remanso on March 1, and we must say it was difficult to leave such an amazing place. Everything from the staff, to the food, to the environment was top notch. The friendly service we received from everyone was just incredible. They are all such genuine and friendly people who treated us... More

Booked a 5 night stay back in August 2014. Was looking for a quiet eco-lodge close to nature but without too much privation! Apart from the stunning facilities & gorgeous surroundings, I was completely blown away by the service throughout & attention to detail - despite being off-grid & quite a bit away from the nearest town of Puerto Jimenez...Sylvia...

We spent a week here and loved every minute. Ari and Daniel and their team were so welcoming and make their guests their top priority. The location is stunning, the trails are amazing, the beach is incredible and you are constantly surrounded by wildlife (squirrel monkeys having their breakfast while you have yours, macaws squawking overhead, tanagers everywhere). The food... More
