Very nice room and facilities for the money, beautiful garden for realxing and admiring the local wildlife. Helpful owners - among other things they informed me that if I had a Tracopa bus ticket to San Jose or elsewhere, that I could use it to ride the local bus into Golfito for free.

As we arrived Walter (the owner) came out to greet us. As noted in another review the check-in was informal. His garden like grounds and our room were immaculate! It's obvious he cares very much about his lodge. We were shown around the property and noticed wildlife everywhere. There was a beautiful pool in a secluded area, as well as... More

The vibe of this place is slightly odd. Our interactions with the innkeepers were a bit awkward, with no real check-in process and the final bill discussed in round figures. The central gazebo has a pool table, which is fun, but the swimming pool has been emptied of water. We stayed in the hostel room with our family of four.... More

the rooms was nice, and clean. the grounds are meticulously maintained and it shows. they have a nice pool to cool off in and a nice shaded area to eat breakfast. lots of wildlife around (especially birds) and a fantastic restaurant right across the street about 100m up the road. i suggest going there to eat.

Located in a beautiful property where Toucans are all around, Blue Morphos flying and Squirel Monkeys jumping on the trees. The cabins are super clean, the bed is comfortable and the swimming pool is refreshing, fun and natural. We didnt met Walter but Rosi was so nice that I wish we could stay another night. Drinking coffee at the morning... More

A birding friend and I needed a low-key reasonably priced place to stay close to Golfito. What a great little spot to unwind. You can kick back and have a hammock all to yourself, or take a refreshing dip in the super clean small swimming pool here in the tropics. If you are as fascinated with birds and primates as...

Walter was a great host and translator. Hope to return for another stay with him in a year or so. Great knowledge of the area. we missed breakfast both morning but I recommend you don't. Monkeys come out as well as some other wildlife.

We did not stay at the Lodge since we arrived at Golfito on the Windstar and did not want to take their tours. So I had emailed Walter at the Lodge and he arranged for Achim to meet six of us at the dock. Achim and a van driver promptly met us and drove us about 35 minutes to a... More
