First of all this was my first destination on my first trip traveling ever as a solo female. It was a great place to start things off. Eva at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with the map of the town. There is a short walking trail around the property which I used twice a day, before going...

Cala Lodge was really nice. The location is gorgeous, the people are friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts are great. The only possible drawback to the place is that you can hear the people in the room next to yours pretty easily - they're set up to be adjoining rooms. There were children in the next room and I could...

Although we were booked to stay here there were problems with our reservations and they were completely booked. Without a hint of a problem the manager came out to talk to us and had already arranged another hotel. The transition was smooth and seamless. He was professional and kind. I just wanted to thank the manager for taking care of...

My boyfriend and I spent a lovely night at Cala lodge. Everything was clean in the room, we had a balcony view overlooking the mountains which made for a beautiful view in the morning. Josie at the reception was exceptional and very helpful with all our questions. Breakfast was good with more selection than most places. They're also doing their...

We are sad to be leaving Cala Lodge today after a lovely 2 night stay. It's in a great location, not far from town. We received a warm welcome (Eva) who gave us a lot of local information and was very helpful and friendly. We changed rooms to enjoy a balcony, and that was no problem. Great breakfasts, very clean...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. We had a large comfortable room in the main lodge above the breakfast area. Our room had a fantastic view looking out across the rainforest. The king bed was like sleeping on a cloud. We loved all the couches and chairs on the deck overlooking...

Stayed here a couple of nights last December. Doing a round trip one sees a number of hotels and places. This was a very nice place. First comment when we entered the room (we had room #4) was "what an adorable room'. Second one was that it was a small place. I think that was the only downside, the room...

it was unfortunate that our stay at Cala Lodge was during a tropical storm although I suspect that it is wet and windy there a lot of the time. Our room - number 4 was not in the main building but in a block of rooms set within the grounds a short walk away. It was rather a small, basic...
