This hotel was our second stop on our 2 week anniversary trip! My husband and I arrived to the lodge and absolutely loved the look of the building! The room was clean and spacious! Alba, the receptionist, was the sweetest most kind woman, she went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. Alba helped us plan day trips... More

This lodge has no air conditioning, not even a fan! The walls are very thin. You hear everything. We had asked to be on the ground floor but we are on the second floor! No restaurant No activities, it is 4:30 pm and room still hasn't been cleaned. The one thing they do have is a million bugs'. NO screens!... More

This little hotel is clean and spacious, which is a nice change from some of the places in Costa Rica. It's a small family run place and the staff are so helpful. They have their own laundry service, there is wifi although it is slow. The rooms contain big lock boxes, a tv and there's a nice rustic charm to... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in March on a three week stint in Central America. It was the most perfect start to the trip - we stayed in a huge room with a lovely big bathroom. It had so much character and we could watch the sunset on the porch. The staff were so welcoming, Alba helped rebook a... More

Lovely lodge located about 10-15 min walk (uphill on the way back) from the town center. We stayed here with our Intrepid group. Our room was very spacious and clean. The shower was big enough for two, nice hot water with good pressure. If you see a bug or two, hello you're right next to a beautiful national park! What... More

Historias Lodge was a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and so helpful. If you go in April though, check the dates of the "Fiesta". This is a multi-day carnival RIGHT next door to the hotel. The very loud music goes on until 1 or 2 am and although the atmosphere... More

We spent two nights here, the room was clean but there were several big spiders and bugs sneaking into our room .. The breakfast is not so good and the laundry is craazy expensive!!! Payed 20 US for a small bag. So pay attention about this, better in downtown for much less..

The Lodge is well situated. Close by there are a couple of nice coffees and restaurants. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The service is really friendly and helpful. Chris can provide a lot of information and recommendations for tours and is pleased to help you with the organisation.
