We stayed here for three nights (with a combination package from Saladero Eco-Lodge, which we also gave five stars). We had a wonderful time at Danta, Merlyn and his entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Titu bungalow, which was a nice quiet walk from the main lodge. You are in the rainforest and hear all... More

We spent one night at Danta near the end of our recent trip to the Osa Peninsula. The lodge is beautiful (we stayed in the family house). We spent some time talking with owner Merlin, who has done much of the design and building. We appreciatde the great attention to environmental issues, and especially enjoyed the many creative, artistic touches.... More

This was my second stay at Danta Corcovado Lodge. Everything about Danta is first class. The bungalows have their own special features and individual charms. The bungalows allow you privacy as you enjoy the wildlife sounds and sights. The bathrooms are unique and actually quite beautiful. Within a short walk you are at the main lodge where the service is... More

This was my 5th year to stay at Danta Corcovado Lodge. This lodge has the perfect combination of location, beauty, and solitude to make for an unforgettable experience. It is located in the rain forests of the Osa Peninsula in the southwest corner of Costa Rica. The bungalows and common areas of the lodge possess the marks of the truly... More

I loved my stay! My cabin was beautiful and I appreciated getting to walk through the forest a little to get to it. I made sure to visit all the cabins to see their uniqueness. Getting to fall asleep to the sounds of nature is such a treat. The food was great. I only eat fish and otherwise I eat... More

I recently spent the 2nd week of May at Danta Corcovado Lodge, and I had an absolutely wonderful time there. I especially appreciated the fact that they have 4 kilometers of well-marked (if sometimes challenging) trails on the property (which adjoins Corcovado National Park) through what I found to be the most beautiful rainforest I'd ever seen (and I've been...

Out of the way, out of the ordinary place on a dirt road in the jungle, this unusual spot offers beautiful jungle trails and villas isolated along some of those trails. Remarkable wood and ceramic constructions in the villas, including a panther holding the showerhead, chairs made from the trunks of trees, bedsteads made to look like wooden spiderwebs. Meals...

We stayed in one of their standard rooms (rana room) and were beyond delighted with the handmade furniture and one-of-a-kind outdoor bathroom. Food was excellent and staff were very accommodating when I explained I couldn't eat dairy. The bar is open throughout the day if you want to cool down with a cold cerveza or care for a glass of...

We, a couple from Germany, stayed 2 days/nights in Danta Lodge in March 2013. Originally we planned to stay 3 nights but we shortened the stay since it was disappointing. The area of the lodge is nice, also the restaurant/bar area. Everything is out of wood and spacious. Food is good. We had a bungalow, very spacious. But the lodge... More

If you don't want creature comforts in 100 degree heat this place is for you. Although the staff was friendly and the food good, the accommodations are spartan. There are no comfortable chairs on the property unless you are over six feet tall. We found the heat oppressive with no relief. Be sure to ask for an extra floor fan... More
