Our little bungalow was just right. Air conditioned. Small refrigerator. Shade. Quiet. WiFi. The town is a mile bike ride (the bikes worked but are not in great condition) or better yet a car ride if you have one. Finding a taxi is challenging so recommend prearranging with Helen at the front desk. She also helped us arrange some fishing and a rainforest tour. If in PJ again, we would come back. Would be nice to come when the restaurant is open. It was not open while we were there but the whole area seemed slow so I’m not surprised.
Our little lodge was the perfect place to relax, we lay in the hammock watching monkeys, drinking beer and pina coladas! The caimans were very cool, and we saw lots of vultures sitting in a line around the lagoon too! The room was lovely and peaceful, the staff were friendly and helpful and the walk into town was mostly by path and very safe. We very much enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it. Shame breakfast is not offered in the low season but we had an evening meal which was nice.
There are individual villas complete with porch and hammock and a block of four all on ground level (I stayed in one of these) with covered patio area, rocking chair and bench. The rooms seem to be fairly newly built and are large, clean, quiet and comfortable. Well decorated, a/c, fridge and massive bathroom and walk in shower. The grounds are well maintained with plenty of wildlife including baby caimans. Don't leave anything around outside the rooms though or the monkeys will be gone with it. There's a lovely pool with plenty of space for sunbathing if you fancy doing nothing. Breakfast was good although they didn't do other meals at the time of my stay but they have plenty of menus for restaurants that will deliver their food to the hotel. Jimenez town and its plentiful selection of restaurants is about a mile easy walk away. Staff are lovely and speak excellent English and have a wide range of excursions and activities to advise you on. Very relaxing, great hotel and highly recommended if you are going to Jimenez.…
After a terrible night at another facility we stayed four nights here. Staff and facilities were superb. Spider monkeys and Mot-Mots for entertainment while sitting on your front porch. We enjoyed our stay. Easy walk ( 1 kilometer ) to Jimenez for restaurants etc.
Our visit to Las Islsa was after 2 weeks visiting the San Jose region and the Osa Peninsula. We needed one night before our flight home to the US. Las Islas was the perfect spot. Air cinditioned with a pool, nice large clean rooms with a huge shower was PERFECT!! It was almost within walking distance to Jimenez...just a very short taxi ride to the Airport. Highly recommend this lodge!!!!
