Caribbean Paradise Eco-Lodge
Ranked #4 of 8 Hotels in Tortuguero
Reviewed September 8, 2010

I do not know how anybody can speak well of this resort.

The appearance is nice (as the rest of resorts around) but I pretended to have an extracharge to be billed in advance. The other few guests in the resort shared the same disgusting experience.

At your risk if you dare to go !!!

This review is our thank you to everyone, especially Guillermo and Roberto, for making our stay at Samoa Lodge the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. Your friendliness, the warm welcome we received and the wonderful boat rides through the canals and waterways remained at the top of our list for magical experiences in your beautiful country. Roberto and Anselmo showed us more wildlife - birds, caymen, monkeys, turtles, iguana, etc. than we saw anywhere else in the country. The pool was lovely. The room was a bit rustic but it was clean and we were welcomed with hibiscus on the bed and a lovely cocktail at the dock. You can only get here by boat but that is the beauty of this place - quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Wish we could have stayed longer for more great conversation and boat rides with Roberto.

Remote & rustic but,that is what we wanted & expected.Only reached by nearly a hours boat ride.The place needs paint & maintence fix up.Sunday,seems to be a off day for tourd,ect.Myself & two friends decided to go fishing.Different experance to fish where the river meets the,Caribbean ocean.The boat would go out into the ocean,turn back toward the river & it was like a funnel for fish.We caught four largefish,plus the one that got away,lure & all.Of course that was the largest.Took the fish backto the lodge.The chief,from Honduras, was happier than we were.Everyone at the lodge had fish.The chief was so proud,he gave us a tour of the kitchen,showing preperation of the sauce for the fish.The chief has a joyful personality.Dispointed on cancelation of the hiking trip to the,hill of,Tortuguero.

Considering that everything is brought in by boat this lodge does a great job.The rooms are not fancy however they are clean and the bed was comfortable.
the tour guide did a good job looking after us and taking us on two great river trips.
The food for a buffet was good.The chef Henry(not sure of his name) was lots of fun,he even danced with my wife to the latin music.

The location and layout of the resort are great ... deep in the coastal rainforest.

However, the rooms are very basic with no amentities to speak of.

The food is good but lacks variety.

The staff were very helpful and friendly.

The best thing is hearing the Howler Monkeys early in the morning or in the late afternoon.

Great exotic jungle lodge. The tour guides are extremely nice and helpful. Everyone spoke perfect English, and the surroundings are enchanting. The only negative was a lack of airconditioning in your room. In the evening it stays pretty warm.
