The hotel was ok. We had a room across the pool. This was not a problem (hardly any noise). However the neighbours deceided to dit out front all night talking out loud (even shouting). There was a nightwatch but she did not care. Too bad for a hotel that advertises with words as quietness and relaxing. Restaurant was reasonable. Nothing... More

We spent one night during low season so the lodge was not to busy. We wanted a place close to the Rincon de la Vieja park, so this place seems like a good choice. They do offer many fun activities for groups such as white-water rafting, horseback riding and zip lining. The hotel is located close to a river. If... More

Around 50 cabins in all, this place resembles a mountaintop resort up in the Poconos. Amenities are minimal and do not include wifi in the cabins (you'll have to go to the bar, restaurant, or lobby). Our shower had no pressure and hot water dial was fickle. There was musty smell as other reviews point out and bugs can easily... More

There were 7 of us who went on a tour December 31. We were left on our own, without a guide between horseback riding and whitewater rafting, for 1.5 hours in the forest. We finally walked up a path to a small house and were able to use a cell phone to call back to get help. The tour guides... More

I have been to this hotel many times and I always enjoy spending time at there. The pool is beautiful with little waterfalls, lounge chairs and a bar. The food is delicious featuring huge breakfast and lunch buffets. The tours are also really fun, tubing is my favorite with the guides helping down rapids and waterfalls. The tours are also... More

We stayed for 2 nights, and we really loved it. Rooms are little bungalows, simple but good. Very good food, buffet. Nice area, directly at a beautiful river, canopy and rafting possible. Nice SPA. Many mosquitos unfortunally. We really recommend it.

Please excuse typos as I am typing on the iPad and this app doesn't allow me to scroll through after 7 sentences. We didn't stay in the hotel, but this is the only listing I found for the tour package that my guide brought me to. I didn't realize that the different hotels had access to similar activities around the... More

We've been traveling through Costa Rica in the off season so we are quite used to limited services at hotels and lodges due to lack of guests. We are cool with that and we totally understand. They've taken it to a whole new level here. We got nice service our first night and morning here from a young lady, but... More

The rooms are dark and musty smelling, but otherwise they are fine. There were quite a few people there so the restaurant served a buffet one night ($15 per person) and the next night we ate off the menu. Breakfast was included and both mornings it was a buffet, they also make eggs to order. If you want the buffet... More
