“Great place to stay in Orosi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

What a lovely little hotel and restaurant! Friendly, helpful owners, great location, comfortable beds, and big rooms. All for a super price. Breakfast is really good and inexpensive ($6 or $7 US). I definitely recommend staying here if you are in the Orosi area and looking for somewhere clean, comfortable, and simple.

Room Tip: Upper floors have better views, and I imagine they are quieter (I had an upper room).

My husband and I and another couple really enjoyed our stay at Orosi Lodge. The room
was very roomy and charming. Comfortable porches with seating in the evening. We really loved the breakfast. Definitely worth doing,
especially the skillet breakfast. Great area to visit. The owners were very nice and
helpful.

Room Tip: we liked the second floor rooms for the view.

This lodge is great! We appreciated the advice of our hosts, with their album full of wonderful suggestions for activitiesb in the area. Breakfast is not included in the very reasonable rate but don't miss it! Of course, the coffee is excellent too.

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room to avoid overhead noise and to have a good view.

I spent one night at Orosi Lodge in April 2012. The hotel is nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good, welcome excellent. Rooms on the upper floor are cosy and have a view on Turralbia and Irazu volcanos ... but above the roofs of ther houses of this small town. Beds are excellent. A good place to go.

While checking in, we noted that the German owner is not really interested in his guest. He mainly took care of his dogs and explained us the local attractions in a rush. The rooms are clean and well maintained - however the rooms are not well isolated from each other. Therefore, expect to hear the noices from all the other guests.

Once arrived in the morning at breakfast two minutes too early, the German owner told us that they are true Germans and won't serve the breakfast prior to 7am. We were not even allowed to sit down at one of his places. We both agreed that this was truly bad services and left immediately.

I therefore do not recommend staying in this lodge!

Dear Quinto Berlin,

having read the 4 reviews you posted here on trip advisor, it seems to me that everywhere you go, you seem to have a problem with bad service or bad management. I truly hope that some day you will find a place that makes you happy.
Just remember : wherever you travel - you always bring yourself ...Good luck !

We stayed in the new chalet for few days which was perfect. The German owners are very professional and they organized all the activities for us. They were all amazing : visit of a coffea factory + thermal pool, rafting, Irazu, Cartago. Thanks to them we found a reliable and friendly taxi driver who drove us to Puerto Viejo. Nevertheless there were two drawbacks : as we were in the chalet we had to be very careful about locking our doors. It was long to lock everything and not very reassuring. The second drawback is the two huge dogs which watched the hotel. We were very afraid and we did not dare to go to the garden because of them.
Otherwise it was a very pleasant journey and we recommend this place.

Hi there,

Thank you so much for your nice review; we are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and all the activities in the Orosi Valley !
I am sorry that our dogs made you a little uncomfortable - they are real sweethearts once you get to know them ;-)
I just wanted to point out that they do not have any access to the hotel grounds or the Chalet; they are always in the private garden of our home.

Hope to see you again in Orosi - best regards !
Andreas

We visited for one night in February. Orisi lodge was not part of our original trip but was recommended to us by another lodge that we stayed at.
The hotel is impeccably clean, well run and the breakfasts (extra cost) are really excellent.
The Lodge is conveniently situated for Trapanti park and within striking distance of volcan's and other attractions.
They do the best orange juice in Costa Rica.

One gripe: Unfortunately the lower floor rooms suffer significantly from the noise of the rooms above. We couldn't help but hear every word of the conversations going on above and their every movement (they were not being particularly loud) seemed amplified. That said if I could get a second floor room I would not hesitate to book here again.

Room Tip: A second floor room is highly preferrable.
