This is a very lovely hotel set in carefully tended grounds with a beautiful view of the ocean and sunsets. The rooms are immaculate and are enhanced by lovely tropical flower arrangements. Jeffer was particularly helpful showing us the wonderful trails around the hotel where you can spot amazing birds including toucans! He also went out of his way to advise on a snorkel trip and book the outing for us to Cano Island, which afforded an awe inspiring view of coral reef, tropical fish, turtles, sea birds and dolphins. He also very kindly bought coach tickets for us and arranged a taxi transfer.

Only stayed a single night in this hotel on the way to the Osa Peninsula, but it deserved more time ...

The location and gardens are beautiful, with lots of bird life and butterflies. The pool was welcome bonus on a hot afternoon.

We enjoyed great views over the ocean from our bungalow at the front The room was compact and comfortable. We appreciated the fresh flowers and speedy wi fi upload/downloads. It was a shame, that in an environmentally friendly establishment, cups and spoons were not available for coffee making in the room. There was a single use plastic stirrer, creamer and paper cups, which did not fit with up market ambience of the hotel. Also, there was some traffic noise from the road below.

Breakfast (fresh fruit, a cooked dish and juice) was tasty.

We also appreciated the efficient reception staff, helping with the on-line booking and our taxi transfers.

The staff did an absolutely excellent job under some really unusual circumstances. The only hurricane or tropical storm to hit the area in the last 500 years happened while we were there. The staff didn’t miss miss a beat and everything was fantastic highly recommend it.

Saludos Carlos,
Playa Tortuga is just the beginning of 9 nearby, distinctive beaches! You can visit a different type of beach every day. From Caves and Sand, Secluded, Lifeguard, Rock Beaches, and more. We hope you are making plans to return soon!

Quiet pleasant relaxing get away. Private bungalows looking at ocean.
Just the right amount of attention to details. Simple and elegant. Unobtrusive staff. The best of gardens and local fauna. Would recommend to friends and return myself.

I am so glad you enjoyed the gardens. Our gardener has been with the hotel for most of his life -- truly a labor of love. We appreciate your willingness to recommend Hotel Lookout and stay in touch!
