We stayed in an eco-lovers tent for five nights in Jan 2016. The tent was fine, but a bit basic for the price - a double bed would have been nice and the view of the sea is impeded by the roof of the yoga suite. It is up a very steep hill, which can be a little tiring in...

My husband and I have been to Costa Rica before, but never to this area. It's tucked away in the beautiful jungle of the Osa Peninsula. It is definitely...

The location is remote and secluded, giving the visitor an occasion to recenter and reimmerse in as nearly pristine a natural setting as a true luxury ecolodge can...

Everything about Luna Lodge is perfect. The food is great, staff attentive, the rooms are clean and have fabulous views. However, the magic of Luna is not something you can quantify - it is something you feel. There is an energy surrounding the lodge that seeps into your pores, and instantly there is peace in your world. The Corcovado National...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Secluded in the tropical rain forest bordering Corcovado National Park, Luna Lodge is a unique resort described by many as "...a piece of true paradise". Its appeal is, not only, its natural beauty and environment, where the heliconia hang three feet long, and the howler monkeys wake you in the morning, but also, its ambiance. The owners' passion for the preservation of the forest is ever present, and the attentive courtesy, friendly staff always serve "con mucho gusto... with pleasure". ... more   less
