nature at its best with a Lodge that respects its surroundings . you will be immersed in the rain forest experience with all the beautiful wildlife and Fauna .The resort which is also owned by the same creator of the Springs" Lee Banks " is a refuge for wild life animal that cannot return to its normal habitat , the resort has created a refuge for these animals among the forest itself where you can visit and admire them . The rooms are amazing the Bathrooms are spectacular with their own waterfall and showers that puts right back into the rain forest atmosphere. Again the whole staff is there to make your stay most pleasant . A must is to go catch your trout for lunch in their Trout Lagoon .they will clean it , cook it for you next door at their outdoor restaurant . A must if you like Nature and relaxation . Make sure to visit the beautiful waterfall "GARDENS " at La Paz

Room Tip: all rooms are amazingly decorated and well located

This was our second visit to the Peace Lodge and we were not disappointed. We love the staff and the accommodations. We like the place enough to return with my cousin and her husband. They had a great time. The food is great. The grounds are wonderful. We loved being with the hummingbirds and toucans. Our guide Michael Jimenez is the best. He took us on the night tour for frogs and on a birding tour to Puerto Viejo. We had a great time. The staff took wonderful care of us. We especially liked Walter our waiter. I was ill the morning we were to leave and unable to travel, the staff was able to arrange for us to stay an extra night without any trouble and I will be forever grateful for that. That was so nice. When we return to Costa Rica we will return to the Peace Lodge.

Room Tip: We've stayed in both types of rooms and found them both more than exceptable.

If you are seeking tranquility while surrounding yourself with beautiful fauna and wildlife is what you are after, then you can do no better than the Peace Lodge. My wife and I just returned after spending 2 nights there in Feburary. Alhough we new the Peace Lodge would be an awesome place, we were concerned that the weather would not cooperate. Ended up that the weather was perfect with daytime temps around 80 and cool nights. I did really imagine that this would be the type of place that a movie star would go to. Although you are in a resort, the layout and service makes it feel as if you are at your own private resort. And the room had to be one of the most amazing rooms I have ever been in. Definitely, highly recommend.

Traveled with two kids, age 11 and 9. it was an ideal destination and there was plenty for the kids to do. What really sets the Peace Lodge apart is the exceptional service. Staff members make an effort to know your name, are genuinely interested in making sure you are satisfied and take pride in the property and their work. The rooms are rustic looking, yet with all conveniences. We had two double beds and a cot and there was still plenty of room. The food is high quality. The interactions with the animals never got old for the kids. They spent hours with the butterflies, toucans and tree frogs. It was exciting and a life lesson for them to catch the trout that was to be their lunch. In fact, most of the trip was educational without them realizing it. While it is expensive to stay at the Peace Lodge, it is well worth it.

The Peace lodge is probably the very best hotel in which I've ever stayed. It's really more than a hotel, more of an experience. My guidebook said it was like JRR Tolkien meets Disneyland; and this is a good summary. The hotel itself has all details thought out in terms of ambience and dimming of lights in the room. The furnishings are exceptional. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, more than any other hotel at which I stayed in Costa Rica. The view from our room was of the Costa Rican rainforest and was exceptional. I also want to mention that they have an outdoor tub/hot tub, and shower waterfall, and waterfall in the bathroom. I highly recommend that you stay here.

This was our first time to the Peace Lodge. We had an amazing time and would recommend that anyone visiting Costa Rica stay at this beautiful lodge.
The staff are so friendly, courteous, enthusiastic and willing to help you with anything. The rooms were unbelievable, with large beds, huge bathrooms with a huge shower and indoor jacuzzi tub and breathtaking views all around you. We loved the fireplace in our room and the outdoor jacuzzi on the patio. It was so peaceful to sit outside and watch the hummingbirds on our own feeder on our balcony. There were so many animals and birds to be seen on the property - Toucans, butterflies, hummingbirds, jaguars, pumas etc. The restaurant was so clean, the food was amazing and the staff were over the top making sure everything was perfect. We look forward to returning!!!
