I stayed at Alby Lodge for 3 nights on my own and then, after my husband arrived, we back to the lodge for another 2 days, thought we were planning to stay at another location. Yvonne and Thomas are great hosts.The place has only 5 lodges on the edge of the big old garden full of monkeys, sloths, eagles, birds,... More

We spent 6 nights here and loved it. Once you walk up the driveway, you seem to be in a beautiful paradise far from the town of Cahuita. The bus station is a five minute walk, and the beach/National Park 10 minutes. The acreage is a private and well-maintained garden. The cabinas were very clean, and the only negative things... More

Imagine laying lazily in your hammock in the shade and everyone you turn there is beauty – flowers of every shape, size and color imaginable, hummingbirds and crabs. You hear the sounds of screeching parrots and peeping frogs, and look up just in time to see a capuchin monkey with a baby on its back leaping acrobatically off coconut palm.... More

This was our second stay at Alby Lodge. We enjoyed it so much last year that we had to come back. The location is great, just a block from the park entrance and about 2 blocks from the main street of town where the restaurants are found. The driveway is almost hidden, just follow the wooden signs. Bring a flashlight... More

The place is ok and very near the park, the small city, bank, and bus stop... I its a place that you can see many small animals like monkeys and lizards. If you like flowers, the owners has a special garden with some exotics...

These cabins are rustic but high-quality. You really feel that you're in the countryside - at night it's totally dark and silent except for the noise of the jungle. The German couple who run the place are very friendly. There's a shared kitchen (with wifi). About 5 minutes' walk from the bus station or the centre of Cahuita, which has... More

Everything was perfect at this place: location, quality of the rooms, shared kitchen, service, etc. Excellent value for the money spent. Nice owners, excellent service. Hawler monkeys and parrots might wake you up at 6am. Amazing!

We have been traveling for six months and stayed in places all over the world. Alby Lodge was a true highlight and we kept extending our stay because: -Yvonne and Thomas were incredible hosts!! - The cabins were perfectly designed; the screens kept out unwanted "guests" and let in cool breezes, the mosquito nets, the hooks made from driftwood, the...

My husband and I stayed here - and overall liked it. Pros: The cabins are well made, and have all the essentials. The grounds are well manicured and taken care of. We loved the hammock. Mosquito net was working/ did not have too many holes. Cons: Large amount of ants on the floor which wouldn't leave (we did not eat... More
