We have just returned from our 4th visit to El Remanso Lodge, and it has never failed to delight us. El Remanso is in the middle of the rain forest, with many activities for all levels, including hiking trails, waterfall rappelling, and bird watching. However, if you want to have peace and quiet, it is definitely the place to be....

We had an amazing time at El Remanso, right in the middle of the rain forest. There are several trails aroiund the property, and some steep paths down to the beach. Unfortunately you can't swim in the Pacific because of strong rip tides, but there is a saltwater lagoon just along the beach for safe swimming. The staff were so...

This lodge is very remote and rustic. If you are adventurous and in good health its for you but..We were 4 friends in late 60's and early 70's and probably weren't adequately prepared for this property. We stayed in a classic cabin , which was large and roomy. We knew what to expect. Luckily, ours was near the main "building"...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us. We appreciate your positive comments regarding your bungalow, our staff, the quality of the tours and the common areas of the lodge.

We absolutely loved our stay at El Remanso. Gorgeous, secluded property in the middle of the rain forest. We traveled with our 8 year old and 11 year old kids and signed up for the "active" package. All of our guides were affable and knowledgeable and gave our family an amazing educational and delightful experience. The staff at El Remanso...

From start to finish, our whole experience at El Remanso was wonderful. The cheery staff who picked us up at the airport along with other staff we met at the lodge gave us a warm welcome and a preview of the incredibly personable service that we would receive throughout our stay with them. Within the first half day, those staff...

We splurged ourselves to three nights at El Remanso in the beginning of our three week Costa Rica tour, and that was an excellent decision. Everything is lovely about this place. Beautiful rooms, we spent two nights in Bajamar and the last night in Caramba. Caramba had an outdoor shower larger than some of the rooms we have stayed in...

We stayed four days in mid December and can only re-iterate on the great reviews we have already read. Our stay was in a massive room on the upper floor of Casa Poniente, great bird and wildlife watching from the massive terrace and overlooking the lovely pool and forest. Complete with a large bathroom with massive mosaic tiled bath as...

I visited El Remanso yesterday with some friends. We were staying elsewhere but had heard about how amazing this place was and wanted to get a day pass. We ventured down their well-groomed path to the beach where we spent a few hours in the tide pools (only accessible at low tide) and at their waterfall. After we had a...

That is a quote from my 7 year old daughter. My wife and 3 children 12,10,7 enjoyed 5 nights early Jan 2017 at El Remanso and it was superb. The lodge is so special. Completely integrated into costa rican primary rainforest. We stayed in one of the new rooms and enjoyed watching monkeys, toucans, and scarlet macaws right from the...

My husband and I took our 4 kids, ages 16-10, to El Remanso over the winter holiday break. We had extremely high expectations and they were exceeded. My kids told me that this was even better than our hawaiian vacation a few years ago. We spent 5 nights at El Remanso and took almost every excursion we were able to...
