“feels like home...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

we were on our honeymoon in costa, and last 5 days we stayed at Itay & Barbara's place.
actually, it wasnt just a 'place' - from the moment we arrived to Fuego - its felt like home.
itay and barbara r two amazing people...they know how to treat there guest, how to manage the hotel and everything.
we stayed at the penthouse (its like very nice apartment in Tel-aviv..). Barbara laundry is the best I saw in all Cost rica. we had the best time in the place and with Itay&Barbara. we recommend everyone that think or plan to travel to Cost - to visit Santa Teresa, and enjoy the experience of being guest at the Fuego Lodge. if u read Hebrew - u can see my Blog i wrot on our experience there... http://www.maveze.co.il/%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%93-%D7%9E%D7%A8%D7%A4%D7%A1%D7%AA-%D7%A0%D7%9B%D7%A0%D7%A1%D7%AA-%D7%9C%D7%96%D7%99%D7%9B%D7%A8%D7%95%D7%9F/

This place is what your looking for on a Costa Rica vacation . Easily one of the top 3 vactions I ever had.

Quick thoughts:
Great location
Walking distance to one of the best surf's in the world!
Great decor
Incredible bathrooms
Great night's sleep
excellent service – I will elaborate,

the owners Itay and Barbara simply make you feel at home, it’s like visiting with family but without the family BS, I’ve been to some really high end expensive resorts and hotels, I am telling you flat out, the best concierge doesn’t hold a candle to Barbara!

Etay & Barbara thank you for everything,
Jerry&Heather

Barbara was so helpful during our stay! The rooms are beautiful and the pool was always great after a long day of surfing. I really recommend staying here if you want to be in a quiet location that is still very close to the beach and to town.

We stayed at Fuego in Feb. 2011 for a week and had a wonderful time. The owners are great and welcoming, the house was beautiful and everything about our stay was good. The location is right in the center of everything, but still it's so quiet you hear the surf and the howler monkeys.
Highly recommended

Barbara WAS WONDERFUL! We did not pull into the lodge till after midnight but Barbara was waiting for us. We were allowed to use the pool just to relax as we had been up for over 24 hours. She helped us in the morning by giving us ideas of what to do for the day and where to eat. I will be going back and stay there - great room, great service.

Fuego Lodge offered us one of the most amazing experiences away from home, and that's why we are going back for new years. From room service to fishing, on every sport or relaxation we experienced, it was thanks to Barbara and Itay, they made the difference.
