You can not Really travel in Costa Rica without living the experience to stay for some days in the rainforest, far from everything, and feeling the power of this environment, looking at the many kind of trees,hearing the sound of birds, and being far away from the roads in a place than you can reach only by boat!
In Golfo Dulce Retreat you can have everything! The please is incredibly wonderful! Since you arrive you are taken care of perfectly by the wonderful and experienced host, every detail is perfect, the lodges are very comfortable and simply beautiful, the food is delicious and the quantity is perfect! You can choose many activities that you can have with a great local guide who knows everything corner in the forest!
I have seen many lodges around the world and I can honestly say this is one of my favorite!

Thank you for everything!
My stay was absolutely perfect and wonderful!!!!

Golfo Dulce Retreat is simply magical. From the moment you land on the deserted beach you know the place is very special. The owners Simon and Chantelle are fantastic hosts and have set up a very professional operation without losing the personal touch. Their food, attention to detail and knowledge about their surrounding is admirable. It's incredible how they have been able to set up the retreat in such a remote location and with no roads! We will recommend this fantastic place to all our friends.

Room tip: The hotel has only three bungalows and they are all special

We’ve just come back from an amazing few days spent in what must be the most unexpected rainforest retreat in the world. I have never written a review in my life but I felt that I had to write this one! We’ve travelled far and visiting a rainforest usually comes with giving up some comforts and too often one’s sense of aesthetics. Instead, the retreat is beautiful, with light airy cabins and an open restaurant you’d expect to find in Morocco - beautiful rugs on the floors, hand made wooden tables and twinkling candles in the evening. The owners have created a very special place and this transpired throughout. There are beautiful details everywhere, even in the cutlery, the way the food is brought to you, the packed food during our boat trip to see dolphins, the afternoon tea served is old china from England....literally everywhere. And all of this surrounded by lush forest, scarlet macaws crossing the skies, toucans eating papayas nearby and smiling employees. A real jewel.

Room tip: The plunge pool in the suite is stunning!

So glad we stayed at the Golfo Dulce retreat! It was such a relaxing four days. We were well taken care of by the owners, Chantelle and Simon. The food is yummy and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. I enjoyed being in nature and learning from their resident biology students. It was the perfect place to unplug from the grid. You are in nature and don't have to worry about running from place to place or how you look. The open air cabins with hammocks are a lot of fun, but you must love bugs, since they are a part nature too :)

Room tip: The cabins are open air, so you may have small animal visitors. The open air shower is lovely.

WOW ! From the minute we got in the boat to go to Golfo Dulce Retreat you knew you were going to have a unique experience. And our time spent with Simon and Chantelle and all the others that help was fantastic. Swimming under the stars and the night bioluminescence,hiking to the waterfall,catching fish for dinner and seeing the dolphins from the boat all contributed to a exciting vacation . Make reservations NOW !
