The staff is very friendly and clean
Location is perfect and near everything, and we will definitely be returning. The pool and parking are excellent. The breakfast was delicious. A family oriented establishment that is very welcoming.

You might pass right by the Guanacaste Lodge if you weren't looking for it specifically but we were so happy that we found it! It is on the main road heading down to Playa Flamingo which is a gorgeous beach area.
Our room was spotlessly clean and was cleaned each day. The fridge was a great bonus. The Costa Rican family that runs the hotel was lovely...and extremely hard working. ( Anna welcomed us when we arrived, cooked us breakfast each morning, cleaned up after breakfast and then proceeded to clean the rooms....all while looking after her 3 young children!!) The breakfast was excellent, cooked right in the small kitchen next to the pool and the open air thatched roof eating area. We had scrambled eggs, bacon, beans and rice, fresh fruit, toast, coffee and juice each morning.
The location is perfect, close to beaches, next to a supermarket on one side and a great Italian restaurant on the other side.
The pool was great. Since there are only 10 rooms available, the place was not crowded. When we were there was a great mix of local families and international visitors.
We are planning to return to Costa Rica next year and the Guanacaste Lodge is where we will stay!

Room tip: There are some boisterous roosters towards the back of the property. Cabins #10 is closest to the roosters. #5 was great!

Room was comfortable but not luxurious. It's spacious and had a fridge so you could get beers from the supermarket and have a drink on the terrace. The pool is clean and a nice option after a day exploring. Local beaches are good and the restaurant next door was excellent. Enjoyed the breakfast here. Rice and beans with eggs, toast with jam, coffee, juice and fruit all on offer. Very pleasant stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The pool was great, a nice interlude from the heat. Our room was basic, but comfortable, enjoyed our own own little patio. Breakfast was good and appreciated. The family that runs the lodge is very accommodating. Although not rated high by some standards, we felt this would deserve much higher.
