I can highly recommend this homely "lodge" for the budget traveler but it might not fit the bill for folks looking for elite accommodations.
The rooms are slightly overpriced for what they are (we paid $30USD for a double) and we did hear our neighbors both nights we stayed. Our shower delivered hot water. The rooms are basic and clean. The compound is a working farm setting but well landscaped with lounging options.
Getting there is possible with a passenger car but will take at least 1 hr from Liberia. They will come get you for a price. We backpacked into the park from the lodge and they held our room and stuff for our return 3 days later. Very cool.
The food was typical Tico and outstanding! Spanish is mainly spoken but one or two individuals are good with English as well. Staff was very friendly.
Canopy tour was fun, with horseback ride to the site; we also rented very newish mountain bikes for a fun afternoon on the local roads.
