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

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
