This lodge is rather special, the staff could not be more helpful. Meal were great and the wildlife is simply amazing. Put it on your list of places to go, and make sure you take a good camera because you will need it.

We visited as part of an Exodus tour of Costa Rica and I had already earmarked this place as somewhere that looked like it would be a favourite. And it delivered! It's such a special place. We stayed in the jungle villa and I would recommend this to people who want to be close to nature and who aren't afraid...

Very pleasant lodges, with nice verandahs to sit out. Excellent central area too, serving good food. The walks were good, including the night walk (best for seeing frogs and snakes), and the commitment to responsible environmental stewardship was good to see. Plenty of birds and lizards around during the day. Staff very friendly and committed

The setting and commitment to environmental stewardship make this a great place for a few days' stay. Food is uniformly excellent, and pays homage to great "tico" ingredients. The trails through the forest are a great opportunity to view birds and wildlife, and staff are helpful and attentive.

A nice lodge in a lovely location. Best thing was the spring fed pool which was cool and refreshing with no chemicals in it. The guide on the bird tour and night walk was very good too, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I loved seeing the row of bats behind the bar, you can only tell they are real when they move...

I had been to Esquinas a handful of times birding and had always been pleased with the quality of birding there. This time I stayed at the lodge as part of a field birding trip I was leading a week ago. The birding is excellent, gardens are wonderful and the contact with nature is great! Do not expect luxury here,...

I came here as part of a small group tour at the back end of the rainy season 2016. It's a genuinely beautiful spot. The cabins are set out spaciously in amongst a beautifully planted and laid out grounds. A network of pathways connects the cabins to the pool and the main restaurant and communal area. The grounds are teaming...

Set in beautiful gardens - lovely place. Requires drive for several miles down unsurfaced road which was quite difficult in our under-powered "SUV". No choice of food (full board) so slightly hit and miss; some delicious, some just about ok. Nice breakfast. We had a package included two guided tours; one on foot was a bit of a waste of...

“All lodges were the same - lower numbers closer to the central area.”

“Higher-numbered rooms are up the hillside and back onto the forest. The "Villa" is outside the gates and may feel a bit remote, although we were comfortable there.”
