If you are expecting 5 star hotel, this place is not for you. BUT if you are looking to stay somewhere as close as you can to Mother Nature and enjoy the minimum of civilized word- you will love this lodge.
We traveled with tour, so I didn't book it myself, but LOVED these 2 nights stay in this inside of nature place.
Even to get to this lodge became to be an adventure- you can get there on boats only- how cool it is- we saw a crocodile as soon as we left dock. And it is just so amazing to have no speed boat, and relax and enjoy time traveling to resort.
Rooms were some outdated- very simple, but clean and had all necessary stuff. Two pools, hammock,couple of bars, restaurant- isn't it what you need to feel comfortable? But setting of every cottage in rainforest with blooming flowers, all kinds of creatures ( yes, included howler monkeys,iguanas, and other "local" creatures) and no TV, internet connection, and such- was absolutely what you want to see, hear and feel when you are inside of National Park. It was interesting to read reviews of people who've got upset about it :-) Isn't it what you are coming to Costa Rica for?
Food was plain and simple ( like in most of the hotels we stayed at) but plenty and a lot of fresh fruit as always.
And place even have a little trail right on grounds- how about it. And yes, because it rains a lot- they even offered us any sizes of rubber boots. But you do need to be careful- it is wilderness and you can see on train anything from monkey, snake, or butterfly.
And for sure take some of local guides for boat tours around. We were so lucky and learned so much from Eddie- priceless information.
I loved it and would recommend anybody who wants to experience unusual stay.
