There are so many amazing things about this place, I don't know where to begin. I read so many positive reviews about the Peace Lodge and I was still blown away by its uniqueness. When you arrive, you can sit down for a free 10 minute massage..this free massage is available to you for your entire stay, and it is a GREAT massage, especially after you come back from strenuous activities. Also, at reception, is free of charge internet access. When we got to our room, we were amazed. Hummingbirds were all over the place on the balcony, eating from the feeder that is hung outside. On the balcony is a hammock, 2 rocking chairs, a table and a hot tub. The bathroom is HUGE, with 2 showers ( one of them a waterfall, shower combo ). There is a jacuzzi tub with a beautiful lighted waterfall coming down behind it. There is a small machine to put provided scented oils in, that fills the bathroom with cinniman, vanilla or other aromas. The room is equipped with a cd player and 4 or 5 cd's that fill the room and the bathroom with music. There is a dvd player in the room and hundreds of movies are available within minutes, free of charge, delivered to your room. I have read some reviews that say the food is not good here. I entirely disagree. I eat out at many quality restaurants in New York City, and the Peace Lodge hods it own. We ate at the Trout Bar, the main restaurant and room service. Everything was great. The restaurant has a giant backgammon set and chess set, near the bar that kept the kids and adults entertained. Setting the lights, lighting the fireplace, putting in a cd and ordering room service was like being in any fine dining establishment, and you are eating at a table at the foot of your canopy bed. Sitting outside at the trout bar, in the jacuzzi or on a chair in the pond was one of the most relaxing spots I have ever sat. You can swim in the trout pond or fish for a trout, with provided rods.The aviary, monkeys, hummingbirds, cats, frogs, snakes, butterflies, trails and more could keep you busy for days. I got amazing excercise walking the trails to the falls. Finally, the staff are the friendliest people I have ever met, as I am finding in most Costa Rican people I meet. The Peace Lodge should not be missed by anyone who travels
