I stayed here two nights with my brother and sister-in-law at the start of a Costa Rica trip. Like them, I had mixed experiences. The lodge and grounds are beautiful with a nice trail, and very conducive to wildlife. We had numbers of both species of toucans next to the road across from my brother's cabin. I spent one night in a standard room, which is much cheaper, but spent the second night in a cabana, which was worth the extra cost. he staff were very friendly, even as they explained that they had made a mistake with my reservation, and bumped me from the cabana to the single room.The breakfast buffet was outstanding, and part of the overnight cost. We made the mistake of eating in the dining room our first night, and paid way too much for food that was not very good. So unless they improve, I'd suggest eating at another lodge or in Fortuna. The lodge is well situated to use as a base for exploring the Fortuna area, and were it not for the dining room experience, would give this lodge a 5 out of 5.
