We stayed here for 4 nights march 2014. The room we had was very clean (as was the rest of the house and bathroom) and really well prepared. We had a fan provided and an insect net kept us clear of bites at night. This isn't a sanitised western hotel, it is a taste of life in Costa Rica and... More

We liked this hotel very much. It was as living with a Tico family for a couple of days. These people went out of their ways to help us in any way they could. The rooms were basic but clean. They provided us with a fan as it was quite hot so we had a few good night sleeps. There... More

Spanish speaking needed to get the most out of the experience but I expect it would be enjoyable even with limited Spanish. Luz Marie is excellent cook with great variety in meals that included Costa Rican standards and also some variety. Zacarius has lived in the area... More

Our days here could not have been better. We experienced the life and wonderful hospitality of our hosts and their family and they made us feel so comfortable. They helped us enjoy every minute. Our meals were so exciting with a great variety and beautifully presented. Outstanding!

This lodge, built and run by a local family is a really special place with a lot of heart and the best typical food ever, horseback rides, and located in a quiet area with lots of wildlife and plants. Had one of the best experiences in Costa Rica....
