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

We visited El Remanso recently for our honeymoon and it was great from start to finish. The staff are great - so friendly, helpful, knowledgable. It's on the more expensive side but definitely worth it; the rooms are beautiful, spacious and you can see toucans and macaws from the porch. There are loads of monkeys too. The food is great...

Our third trip of 4000 miles to this property to this lodge, which really says it all. It is run by the owners, who greet you personally. The staff make you feel like one of the family. The food is excellent. The rooms, a mixture of cabins and rooms are plain but very comfortable and ideal for the location. Excellent... More

Our 10 day exploration of Costa Rica in July 2014 took us to El Remanso for three enchanting nights. This trip - our first to Central America - was full of surprises, and each of the four eco-lodges we selected had great things to offer. But with El Remanso, we had definitely saved the best for last. Arriving at the... More

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at El Remanso and it was the perfect choice for us! We stayed in La Vainilla deluxe cabin and loved it -- literally surrounded by nature and with plenty of privacy. The adventure began with the domestic flight from San Jose to Puerta Jimenez on a 12-seater airplane that lands on a... More

Stayed in April for 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Accomodation was excellent. Restaurant and food wonderful. Staff extremely friendly and very accommodating. Tours offered at lodge are very good. Make a note the trip down to the beach is quite a hike back up if it is in the middle of the day - take plenty... More

Spent 3 days at El Remanso, would have loved it to be 3 weeks. This is a really luxury eco lodge, the rooms and facilities are beautiful whilst blending in perfectly with their natural surroundings. The property includes a huge area of forest with suspensions bridges, trails and a stunning deserted pacific beach. It is teeming with wildlife and you... More

This is an eco-lodge but with a top class feel to it. It was nice to see somewhere fully committed to the environment , it not just energy saving light bulbs but everything from powering the hotel with solar power right down to eco toilet paper. The meals and drinks were very good indeed. Plenty of staff were on hand... More

Staying at El Remanso is nothing but a visit to paradise. Yes, it comes at a price, but if you can afford the splash, El Remanso offers an experience for a lifetime. We had a standard bungalow which was gorgeously sleek in the design as well as perfectly comfortable with hammocks, complete insect cover (not that insects were very frequent,... More
