We stumbled across Rinconcito Lodge while we were out sightseeing and decided to stop for lunch. So very glad that we did. What a beautiful place for a leisurely lunch. We had a really great lunch with amazing hospitality. I would love to return and actually stay for a few days. The view is great and the grounds are beautiful.

As it turned out 2 of my best days on my Costa Rica/Nicaragua trip were here!! It's beautiful, peaceful and the entry to the Park from that side is more remote, which I liked. I do have 'Mixed Comments' because there were a few things that could be improved upon. I worked in the Hospitality Industry for years and managed... More

location is excellent for access to Rincon Park. Catering to those who want good food, a place to sleep, and showers. Not many frills, but that is not what this hotel is designed for. They are focused on getting their guests a great experience in nature. Guided tours, etc.

This place is a great value for the money in CR and if I was in the area again, I'd definitely come back. Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We only booked a basic room and we didn't find any of the poor conditions described in the other reviews. We were very satisfied. The shower was good and the... More

I stayed here in February with my wife and 15 year old son and had a great time. The grounds are beautiful and so was our room. We stayed in the upper level rooms, which had a great view of the surrounding area. We enjoyed having Henry as our waiter and part-time Spanish teacher and Oscar was a great guide.... More

I had a good stay at Rinconcito Lodge, but I can understand the mixed reviews it has gotten here. It may be a little too rustic for everyone's tastes. Our room was quite rustic and basic. It was clean and everything functioned Yes, there was no hot water, but the bracing shower wasn't really unpleasant after a day in the... More

We stayed here 5 nights. This lodge is considered budget by the Lonely Planet guide so we were not expecting luxury. Our room and all the areas were very clean and well kept up, if a bit worn. Our "standard" room was big and had everything that we needed including drawers, small closet and plenty of places to put toiletries.... More

I would not go back to Rinconcito Lodge nor recommend anyone to stay there in spite of its beautiful location in the middle of nowhere. Our room was big but rather stuffy. The shower did not work and there were cockroaches in the room. Other people in our group of 12 had similar problems in their rooms. After having checked... More

Upon arrival we were welcomed in a very unfriendly manner. Though we had made a reservation 6 month in advance they had given our room to others. Bad luck, he turned around and made us feel wrong. When I told the guy I would report this on tripadvisor, he became a bit more helpful and made a few calls. He... More

we stayed here two nights. They are very relaxed and helpfull. The cabinas are in a garden with walking possibilities. It s very well signposted exept for the gate where there is no sign. The restaurant serves up decent food although it gets somewhat boring with just four options for lunch and dinner. They can make you a sandwich on... More
