“Mixed experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Our family stayed one night at the Cerro Alto Lodge on the way through Turrialba. We had mixed feelings of our stay. The lodge has a great location overlooking Turrialba and Angostura lake. In clear weather, it is a great viewpoint to see the smoking peak of Turrialba volcano, as was the case for us.

Unfortunately the lodge is now a little run down and in need of some maintenance. The cabin we stayed in was very basic, with hard beds, and a shower cubicle that didn't drain properly. The last section of road leading up to the lodge may be difficult for those without a 4wd. A GPS is a necessity to find this place as there is no signposting.

The owners were nice however, and the included breakfast cooked for us was very enjoyable. Has potential to be great, but unfortunately needs some work done.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2007

The rooms are fairly rustic, but do have private, hot showers. There is no air conditioning, but it is not needed at this altitude. The views are incredible. The staff is very hospitable. The restaurant on site serves good, typical Costa Rican food.
