Poas lodge & restaurant question

I just booked here for March, but now that I see the temps can be 40F at night I wanted to check if anyone had stayed there & if they froze?

We are bringing young kids.

thanks

I haven't stayed at the Poas lodge, but we have stayed in this area on several occassions. They temperatures at night can "sometimes" get into the 40's, so it is advisable to have a light jacket or sweater. We always take along some long pants and shirts with a light jacket when we will be staying in this area. Works out OK, because you will also need this attire if you decide to go to one of the Mirador restaraunts around the San Jose area. These get cool at night also as they too are in the mountains. Where we normally stay has gas fireplaces in the rooms which we always put to very good use.

We are here right now with our 5 year old. It's very cool, but we have fleece on so all is good. Our room has a heater in it so very comfy. Also, very nice place and people. Dinner was outstanding. Don't order a salad you won't need it. Portions are huge and excellent. Even a kids menu. I'm not disappointed so far. Would stay here again and recommend.

We always pack a fleece jacket when we go to that area because it can really cool down, especially at night. We've worn fleece at Poas volcano too.

Are Mark and Oliver leaving that hotel? I thought I read that somewhere.

Mark and Oliver are the managers and the company that owns it has it for sale. This might happen quickly or it could take some time so enjoy it now if you can. Note they are from south Africa and I think they are ready to go back home as it's been 4 yrs.

Also say to "girl" their dog...she is very cute.
