I have been checking out trip advisor reviews and traveling a lot for the past two years but never signed up for an account until now. but because I enjoyed my stay here as much or more than any place I've been in 3 months of Costa Rica travel, I wanted to help get the word out what an awesome place this is and it's under new management as of just recently so don't let any bad reviews from November 2012 or prior affect your choice.
the setting is an incredibly beautiful jungle a short walk from a scenic and refreshing river and waterfall. I greatly preferred staying here to staying on the beach. very quiet and I didn't even use my mosquito net. the waterfall has a great restaurant too so even if you don't have a car you have options for food. it's pretty easy to hitch down or up the road to the highway and cabs are easy as well.
the open air lodge was kept totally spotless and the cost of everything from the room, to laundry, to dinners that were sometimes available was incredible for a place that nice.
finally the owners are so nice and helpful. they treated me like family. a GREAT place!!!
