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

This was my favorite lodging during my 21 days in Costa Rica. The bungalows are absolutely beautifully designed with panoramic views of Volcan Tenorio. I was lucky enough to be there on the night of a full moon which turned out to be absolutely magical. The bungalows are extremely spacious with modern fixtures and nice lighting. For those with attention... More

Good location, close to town if you have a car and pleasant surroundings and views. The French couple who own the place are friendly and helpful and the terrace is a very nice location for a evening drink, read or or for using the wireless connection. The rooms were bright and airy however, with no tv, fridge, wireless or air... More

Nice simple hotel. Location is not on the tourist path but that's what adds to the charm. Rooms are large and clean. No A/C but breeze+fan was fine enough. Hot water! Some bugs but you are in the middle of a forest. Breakfast is awesome. We didn't eat any other meals as we wanted to check out the local town... More

This is a secluded resort high up in the mountains between 2 volcanoes; the flowers, bird and monkeys are amazing. The rooms are simple but very nice and all have great view of Tenorio. Frank and his wife Christina are very kind and concerned innkeepers; and this is all just a short distance from Rio Celeste and rafting and canopy... More

The hotel is just awesome, the architecture is beatiful. We were greeted by a pleasant young man who showed us around, then one of the owners welcomed us with delicious drinks. The bungalows are design with a perfect view of the volcano, the rooms are clean and very french, everything here breaths peace and rest. I would love to spend... More

We had stayed at Tenorio Lodge two and a half years ago, and decided to return for a couple of nights as part of our three week trip this summer. It can sometimes be a mistake to go back to somewhere you really liked, but we found Tenorio Lodge to be as wonderful as it had been the first time.... More

Beautifully situated for views of the Tenorio volcano from our room this Lodge is under the very watchful eye and personal supervision of the French owner. It is also well situated for excursions to the many local attractions as well as having its own self-guided trails from which we gained excellent views of a Sloth and a troupe of Howler... More
