We stayed here for three nights on our very first trip to Costa Rica.I only wish we had stayed for longer, what a beautiful place.The food was delicious the staff were very friendly and welcoming and the trails from the lodge produced many surprises.Where else can you watch scarlet macaws and spider monkeys while eating breakfast. If we ever go... 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

My husband and I along with our 12-year old daughter traveled to El Remanso in April. WOW! During our orientation, two beautiful macaws graced us with their presence. The wildlife was fantastic! We took a nature hike with Felix (thanks!) and saw four types of amazing monkeys, white faced kiwatis, leaf cutter ants, along with many beautiful birds. We did... More

My wife and I enjoyed flying into El Remanso from San Jose and staying several days. The staff were friendly and attentive, the room was spacious and attractive, the food was excellent and varied and the natural attractions were magnificent. We enjoyed hiking and zip-lining and saw many birds, monkeys and even some poisonous snakes (with a skilled guide). We... More

We loved our stay! This place is amazing. We spent months looking for a place to elope to. After contacting several resorts, all of which wanted to charge us $2000+ for a wedding we didn't want, we found El Remanso. They worked with us to tailor a wedding that suited our specific needs at an incredible price. They made us... More

The vacation was unlike any we experienced. You are nestled in the middle of the rainforest, perched on the sloping hillside. There is no overcrowding, and it feels as though you have the place to yourself. The staff was excellent attending to all our needs and worked hard to scheduled activities throughout the stay. It was serene and relaxing experience... More

I travelled with my husband and 2 children (8 and 11) in February 2015 and stayed for 4 nights at this beautiful place. As a tropical ecologist who had lived in the rainforest for 2 years I was not disappointed with the wildlife, environment or the guides who showed us around and have to agree with all of the wonderful...

I'll try not to repeat what recent reviewers have said about this excellent eco resort: Food - It is usually very good and occasionally pretty bad. The choices are adequate and they will modify for food allergies or preferences. Lodging: We stayed in a deluxe suite. We liked the proximity to the pool and dining room and it was often... More
