I love this lodge. I have stayed here twice and would easily stay here again and again. The grounds are beautiful. The paths to the rooms seem to be cut right out of all the flora. There are 3 different groupings of rooms. One group is down by the pool: alot of these rooms have balconies, and are more tropical cabin type rooms. Beautiful. The second set are on the path above those rooms. These have a lodgey feel to them, but are more of a basic hotel room. The third set is above the front office, and I have never stayed there. Last year, only the third set had airconditioning, but this year, all three sets have airconditioning in them. There are also tv's in all rooms, and some rooms have refrigerators.
As I said the grounds are beautiful. Well manacured, and full of wildlife that you can hear and see. The sounds are all around you and it's beautiful. Equally beautiful is the pool. There are two levels to the pool, and a fountain! Gorgeous and clean.
The food is delicious. The bar is great. They have a pool table as well. The staff is incredible. It is a family run lodge and most employees are family. They are extremely helpful and always polite ! I just can't stress enough how helpful and courteous they are. The main office also has a computer for your use, and a tiny shop for costa rica clothes. They also used to (didn't get to visiti it this year) have a frog garden as well for you to look for and spot the (mostly poisonous) colorful frogs.
If you stay here, you will be pleasantly satisfied.
