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.

Rooms themselves are ok, but the staff let this place down. We were given a complete lack of information about activities and what time they close so for example missed out on the cloud forest as this shuts at 4pm. Knowing this was shut the reception still booked a taxi for us which we then had to pay a cancellation... More

I stayed for two nights. Alba who welcomes guests and arranges your trips is absolutely brilliant and she looked after us well. All the staff were lovely. Breakfast of eggs and pancakes was freshly cooked and delicious. There is a supermarket and bakery nearby and you can walk to many of the local restaurants and attractions - although that usually...

I can only echo the statements in the other reviews. Friendly staff, well kept rooms, plenty of hot water, and a plentiful breakfast. Our room had a two person bath! Staff able to help book local activities, but aren't pushy to sell. The Lodge is suitably close to all the local parks, and is also handy for Santa Elena (a... More
