We stayed at Danta mid-July for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We loved everything about Danta. The staff: Merlin, Nelson, Andres, Gabriel (just to name a few) are helpful and friendly. Danta is owned and operated by Ticos, not always the norm in Costa Rica. Merlin has a lot of pride and love for his lodge and it shows. The... More

I normally am very happy with booking properties I find with TripAdvisor. However, I will say that this choice was horrible. They advertise as having WiFi and the web site looks very nice. When we arrived we were first alarmed by the horrible location. It was not in the rain forest but at the back side of a local costa... More

This place was the highlight of our stay in Costa Rica, the surroundings do not look so great when you first get there but once you discover your hidden villa in the forest, you feel you have landed to some extraordinary place, alone in the forest surrounded by wildlife. Sleeping in the wild is a great experience, although it can... More

We recently spent two wonderful nights at guests at Danta Corcovado in Costa Rica. The hotel and resort sits just outside of the Corcovado National Park, and is owned and operated by a very enterprising Costa Rican family. All of the architecture is built of local materials, with original wood carvings and beautifully maintained wooden floors in all the cabins... More

The staff were always right on time and patient - no waiting on them to show up - they were there when they said they would be. The meals were plenty and delicious. I stayed there (mother) with my two preteens and we loved the trails there. The lodge and bungalows are exquisitely designed: the walls, sinks, chairs, showers,.... were... More

My friend and I recently stayed at Danta Corcovado Lodge. We only stayed 2 days on our way to Corcovado NP, however, I would definitely stay longer next time. The staff were very friendly and helpful and let us store our luggage for a few days until we returned from the park. The bungalows backed up to secondary growth forest... More

My husband and I (seniors) spent a fabulous 5 days at Danta Lodge. It was a great experience: a perfect setting with trails in both primary and secondary rain forest; a terrific day trip to a waterfall in Corcovado Park; an unusual, somewhat exotic and very attractive lodge; superb, healthy, tasty food; lovely attentive staff; an excellent bird and nature...

This eco-lodge lived up to our expectations, indeed exceeded them! The whole place is very imaginatively decorated and sits comfortably in secondary growth rain forest with primary growth a short walk away. We have stayed in many lodges in sub Saharan Africa and rate this up there with the best! There is excellent wildlife viewing genuinely on the doorstep and... More

(Previous review: May 18, 2013) This was my 2nd stay at Danta Corcovado Lodge, and I just absolutely adore this place. If you appreciate the natural beauty that the tropical rainforest has to offer, enjoy jungle wildlife (some of which will almost undoubtedly appear in your open-air bathroom/shower at some point,) can handle high temperatures and humidity, and are up...

What a great stay we had in the Danta Corcovado Lodge!! A very nice lodge (the bathroom outside!), great food and lovely people. Our trip to the Cascade with terrific guide Jairo made our stay unforgettable. Driving through the river with our Jimny 4x4 :-). This stay is certainly one of the highlights of our stay in Costa Rica! Arthur... More
