What a truly amazing place!! My family of 4 (two boys 7 and 3) spent 2 nights at the Peace Lodge after arriving in Costa Rica. I can't say enough good things about this place. The rooms are large, roomy and have great views. The bathrooms are huge and have waterfall tubs and showers. The grounds and the La Paz... More

It was our second time to this hotel. This time we flew to Costa Rica just to go back to Peace Lodge. We didn't even leave the hotel. Just like its name, it is one of the most peaceful places on earth. Rooms are designed to look you are staying in nature, beautiful views, several hiking trails around the hotel,... More

We were delighted to find that Peace Lodge deserves the wonderful reviews they receive. The hotel is delightful - just as pictured and the waterfall in the bathroom is quite fun. We loved the hummingbird feeder on our balcony, the fireplace in our room and all the extra touches that made us feel right at home (albeit a bit more... More

Everything that could go wrong, went wrong when I was on my way to the lodge. My dog was suddenly getting sick and my flight from Ft. Lauderdale to SJO turned around 20 minutes before landing--resulting in a 10 hour delay. I was not myself at all and just wanted to go back home. Once we finally arrived to SJO... More

Our room at the Peace Lodge was spectacular, with beautiful views of the surrounding rain forest, and literally, waterfalls in the Bathroom. The food was fantastic, I strongly recommend the grilled trout, locally caught. Three fantastic waterfalls on the trail, plus an "onsite zoo", featuring Humming Birds, Butterflies, Snakes, Jungle cats, and much more. Just fabulous! Dana Voien

Very peaceful location, higher elevation than expected so was cool. Top floor room had the best balcony and view on our Costa Rica trip. Restaurant was good. Walking trails were great. The only downside is they don't provide free water or breakfast.

Complimentary umbrellas for us to use to walk around the property to see the wildlife and hike to waterfalls. Every staff member was very nice and helpful! From teaching us about the various animals to serving great food. We... More

Where to start? I was so overwhelmed with this BEAUTIFUL place upon arrival I found my hands shaking. The room! The views! Every amenity one needs, including natural, Costa Rican made products for skin and hair. Our room included a fireplace, two hot tubs, two awesome showers and,...a waterfall in the bathroom!
