Funky Monkey Lodge has it all: Beautiful, tidy accommodations, delicious food, friendly and funny staff and great ambience! Stayed there for one week for my surfing camp with Pura Vida Surfers and had a blast! The chefs cook the most delicious meals and make the best sushi in town (every Wednesday and Saturday). The dorms are spacious, clean and you... More

I would totally recommend that Lodge! Not only because of it's beautiful location, but also because of the charming staff! You're always having fun and they do everything to make your stay most comfortable! It is the place to be for everyone - stay with friends or with your family - you will love it! :)

Me and my friend stayed 5 days in a dorm room in the Funky Monkey Lodge. The room, bathroom and all the facilities were always clean and prepared. We loved the really nice pool&yoga area and of course the amazing FOOD and Sushi Nights!!!! I would really recommend it and we will definitely come back.

We didn't stay at the lodge but heard a lot about the great service and sushi night so had to give it a try! The dark sign on the road outside was hard to spot, but after finding it we were pleasantly surprised. The margarita was delicious and the sushi was on point. We had sashimi, rolls and a tuna...

The staff at the restaurant (Nacho & crew!) were great. They were always helpful, warm and set a really cool vibe for hanging out, even with two younger kids (7 & 11). Even when walking around town & at the beach everyone would say "hi" and was happy to chat. After spending 10 days, we felt part of the community... More
