We heard about this hotel on a special offer and decided to go for one night. The road is TERRIBLE, it took us around 4 hours to get there from San Jose. I'm honestly surprised they're listed as a 5-star hotel. The hotel facilities aren't as nice as expected, specially the room. There are scratch marks on the floor and... More

Tucked away up at the northeast of CR, at the end of a 2-3 hour bumpy road is this gem of an ecolodge. We were greeted by Pablo, with the cliche "Welcome to paradise". In this case, though, it is well-deserved. Stunning location, beautiful lodges, jaw-dropping wildlife and superb food courtesy of Marco, the owner. Jungle and river trips both... More

We spent 3 nights and 21/2 days here but would have enjoyed staying longer. We are birders and came to the area to explore both flora and fauna. Hosts are gracious and made us feel both welcome and valued. Owner Marco is an excellent cook and readily accommodated our food preferences; food was tasty, enjoyable and attractively served in open... More

Although it is remote and a long drive over a gravel road it is worthwile. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel at home. And all those beautifull birds!! The food was great and the rooms were ok.

Set in the jungle, away from the maddening crowds, this is a birder's paradise! Marco is a delight, despite his very limited english. A great cook, you get what you get for meals, but always very good. So, NO menu! Tours can be arranged for birding, night tours, or river tours on the San Carlos River. Note: 40 miles of... More

Marco and his team do a great job. The view and the garden is amazing. The rooms spacious and charming, the balcony great - we could see the river and a lot of Leguans just laying at the trees. The food is delicious, Marco is a great cook and the chicken with palm heart is a menu excellent!!! The tour... More

Gorgeous location right on the San Carlos River. The owner and staff were super-friendly, and very accommodating. A couple of bird feeding stations attracted a great variety of birds, including parrots, toucans, honeycreepers, and oropendulas. The owner went out of his way to make our stay what we wanted -- we weren't that interested in a short group river trip... More

Don't bother going somewhere else. Indeed, a long and heavy drive, but it is all worth it. The location is so great. The region is better since less touristic, the location of the hotel is even better. Bungalows in the middle of the forest, on the riverside, looking out over treetops and the river. Good, clean and very spacious bungalows,... More

We stayed 2 nights at Pedacito de Cielo and it was our best time in Costa Rica…if you’re looking for a luxurious resort this is not the right spot, but if you’re looking for ADVENTURE, JUNGLE, MONKEYS, birds, beautiful gardens and communion with the nature, then IT HAS IT ALL! The road to get there was really a hassle…you don’t... More
