Well, this is Tortuguero, so you won't get an Intercontinental experience, but a jungle experience. The rooms are the minimum. Bed, bathroom and a fan. The hotel is not in the village, so you'll need to taxi (boat) to get into town, but the ambience is wonderfull, by the river. Pool could get extra chairs. The people there are great!

We are currently staying at this hotel with a group of 24 persons and many of us had money stolen from our rooms between breakfast and lunch. Around 100 dollars were stolen from each rather than all the money so that most persons would have been unaware of the theft immediately unless they were warned by two of us who... More

We stayed at the Rana roja for 4 days and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Anything we needed was accommodated quickly and efficiently. We hope to visit the Rana Roja again!

Amazing place in the jungle with all the sound of the nature during the night! The people of the hotel are really kind! Tortuguero is also so beautiful and the park is wonderfull. Really good price compared to the other same type of lodges in Tortuguero. If we return to Tortuguero, we will choose the same place! Thanks for all!

We were greeted by Reggae music and a beautiful outdoor bar with a super friendly bartender/manager...Coco. Not only was I impressed with the property but the owner, Gerardo, and manager, Coco were so helpful and accommodating, They were a pleasure to have there and made our trip even more memorable. I couldn't believe the animals we saw right there on... More

We loved our stay at Rana Roja, the food was good, pool was clean, monkeys jumping from the trees in the distance, and truly an outdoor experience while still having a nice roof above our heads. Beds very comfortable too.

I stayed here two nights along with a large group of students during a trip of CR. RR Lodge was a perfect place for a group of our size. It was plenty nice for students, yet offered a truly unique experience. The staff was great and the food was also top notch. (It was 'typical' CR food.)

The cabins are greatly set within the rainforest.... No windows, just screens. Very clean. However: bathroom needs renovation... Very basic plus the water smells like iron(rust in water heater?)... Also very basic for the price. Yet: great pool, The choice of 2!
