The prices are also very good, exceptionally good value for money. In Ostional there is not a lot to do when there is no arribada or hatching,... More

We stayed here while we were searching for the hatching turtles. The lodge is in walking distance to the entrance to the beach and turtle information shack. The cabanas are nice, roomie, and clean. You pay a little more if you want air conditioning but not very much. There is wifi and plenty of hot water. The proprietors, Luis and... More

My husband and I chose to stay at Turtle Lodge for an overnight last winter. Due to a snowstorm back east, our arrival time went from 4 pm to almost midnight. The owner, Luis, was so kind and understanding. He assured us our room would be waiting and not to worry about coming in so late. Our taxi driver called... More

I recently stayed 2 nights at Ostional Turtle Lodge, during one of the "arribadas" and I was greatly surprised. My room was big, with a double and a single bed, 2 fans (there are a few with aircon), and a decent size bathroom with hot water and toiletries (shower gel and hand soap). Towels are provided. The room had a... More

The room has hot water which my kids appreciated, coffee which my wife appreciated, and A/C which I appreciated :-) We didn't need anything else; the idea was to take my family to the beach and enjoy nature, and we did! We disconnected at this place and had a great time, Luis and Veronica are great, I literally found a... More

This was the first place I stayed when I visited Ostional. I have been coming here ever since and now book my clients here. You can hear the ocean from the top floor chalet, which is air conditioned and with kitchenette great for those who want to cook for themselves. It also has air-conditioned ground floor rooms and rooms with... More

Luis , the owner, was very gracious and informative about the small town of Optional, the Olive Ridley nesting and restaurants. We stayed in number 4 (there are four rooms in one building). Everything worked, especially the AC - it was hot and humid there. There is an instant electric hot water heater, and a warm shower was appreciated. There... More

A hidden gem! We were warmly greeting upon arrival by the owners Veronica and Luis. Luis escorted us to our room and was very happy to see us. We stayed here for only one night (wish I could have stayed longer) while we came to see the turtles nesting at night (will talk about this in another review). The room... More

From the moment Veronica and Luis greeted us at the front gate of their property, we new we would have a wonderful time at Turtle Lodge Ostional. The owners have huge hearts and their sense of welcome is palpable. To stay in a tropical cabina on stilts-- a tree house-- was a dream of mine. The treehouse is delightful, and... More

In early March we stayed at Ostional Turtle Lodge in search of...turtles. It was supposed to be the perfect time to see them and as it turned out was, though we didn't see any turtles. We did see a lot vultures which seemed odd. But more about that in a bit. Finding the hotel was a monumental chore and took... More
