Corcovado Tent Lodge Closing, where should I stay instead?

I just got a message from our Costa Rica Expeditions travel agent and she said the Corcovado Tent Lodge was closing for a full year starting this month (they are building a nicer facility, scheduled to open Dec 2009). We have a trip planned for February 2009 and had planned to go to Corcovado Tent Lodge for 3 nights. She set us up at La Leona lodge, but I was a little worried. Any recommendations about where to stay instead? Should I switch my plans to Manuel Antonio instead? We have 2 adults and 4 boys going, and so I need to be in 2 rooms at the most so that none of the boys are sleeping alone without an adult.

I know this trip is long over but...

"Don't Stay at Pura Vista in Drake Bay!"

The owner's a swindler, basically. You'll feel like you're getting scammed even as you sleep.

On the other hand, La Leona rocks! Don't know why anyone would be nervous about staying there. A lovelier place you won't find.

We actually ended up staying at La Paloma Lodge, which was very nice, although a little pricey. Still we enjoyed the stay there very much. Still it would have been interesting to stay in a tent lodge. Can't say I missed it but the kids were a little bummed about it.
