We stayed here for 2 nights while birding the nearby the La Selva Biological Station. It's a bit more basic than the higher priced lodges nearby but it's a very relaxing site with a very helpful family running things. Just what we go to Costa Rica for. Good birding on site too with their feeders and a trail down to the river and family of Spectacled Owls hanging around. If you are a birder or nature nut or just want to relax this is an excellent lodge. If you are a family looking for adventure touring and a lot to do I'm not sure it's the best match though they will be happy to book those things for you and make recommendations.

We stayed here one night and the place was really nice- everything was clean, staff was great- breakfast was very tasty and an interesting juice in the breakfast was wonderful. There is no TV in the rooms, but if you are looking for a good time with friends or family member- TV is not necessary and anyway- you can read news in the lobby via your mobile phone or tablet- there is free wi-fi.

We enjoyed our one night stay here. The gardens were lovely and peaceful and they have a large bird table to attract the most amazing birds. Could spend hours just watching these brightly coloured birds flying around. The rooms were large and clean and the evening meal we had was very nice.

Even the newer and larger rooms are a bit dated and the prices were a bit high, but Gavilan Rio Sarapiqui is a comfortable alternative for anyone planning to visit La Selva Biolgical Reserve for a day tour. The birding on the grounds of the hotel is also good, especially when they are stocking the feeders. The people were friendly and the service good. Internet access was iffy at best. Food was excellent, but also a bit pricey.
