We had two nights here in February. The casitas are the best we stayed in while in Costa Rica, with great views of the volcanoes if there is no mist or rain in the way! Run by a very nice French couple, with mostly French-speaking guests (not a problem). Small fixed menu but the food is good. Not too much... More

On arrival we were welcomed by the owners and Kimberly with a nice drink. The bungalows have marvellous views of the gardens and while lying in your bed you can just watch the wildlife go by. The bathroom is very modern and nice with a big shower, only downside is the window in the shower. It is probably made for... More

Wonderful place, the huge window in the bungalow and the view alone are worth sleeping here. The whole place is very quiet and clean, owners are nice and helpful. Jacuzzi was a nice plus in the evening. I suggest to sleep here if you travel in the area.

The lodges are beautiful with an enormous window overlooking the gardens and valley beyond. Lounging in bed you can watch the birds and wildlife go by. You will probably stay because of the volcano and the scenery is wonderful. There are long walks from the hotel and plenty of birds all around. There is an onsite guide to help you... More

Stayed in early July with family of 4. The modern style cottages are quite impressive, particularly the floor to ceiling windows across the whole wall of the main room. Views are into a valley leading up to the mountain. Lots of birds all day long. very clean, bathroom is large and modern and shower was great. Breakfasts were good, but... More

We spent 2 nights in July 2014 in Tenrorio lodge. Christine & Franck, the French owners are really very nice and helpful as well as their entire team. Don't come here for luxury, but if you are looking for very good basic accomodations, quiteness and friendliness ...do not hesitate. The rooms/bungalows are spacious and very clean. All in all, worth... More

We stayed two nights at Tenorio Lodge at the end of April. Our room was beautiful. We were greeting with drinks upon our arrival. The deck outside the lodge is wonderful for bird watching. We enjoyed the hot tub too. Breakfast was good. We enjoyed talking with both the young man who works at reception and the young woman who... More

Tenorio Lodge is not only located in a beautiful spot with a view of the volcano, it is also a very well run facility. The owners have paid attention to every detail - resulting in spacious rooms fronted by glass, a shower with a glass wall looking out onto plants, your own 'yard' in front where it's possible to see...

Nice big rooms, felt very private. The property also feels spacious and isolated. The french couple were very nice and helpful. They booked us a tour of the rio celeste, and after we came back we relaxed in the jacuzzi before dinner, and spent a relaxing evening there. The next day, breakfast was fantastic, and since they recommended it, we... More
