...after being on the Hawaiian Islands for 6 weeks (got very spoiled there) a bunch of friends got together in Costa Rica for 2 weeks of just relaxing and a very good time!

The location of the hotel is just minutes away from Montezuma (very cute little town, perfect for dinners and little activities, bars, convenient to take boat trips) yet the hotel is away from every huzzle, quietly located in a tropical forest. (you will hear and see the monkeys)
2 or 3 room units, kinda like little villas, wonderfully designed and furnished made it just so pleasant. ( I'm not much of a morning person, but I always got up very early in the morning, just to see the sunrise, to see and hear the awakening day from our terrace! of course with a cup of delicious coffee - made from the coffeemaker provided in the room) also loved the additional shower outside!
Breakfast: the staff is very-very friendly, they will fix you everything possible extra to the rich breakfast buffet!
Again, surrounded by the lush tropic ambiance, feeling how the sun gets stronger, sitting at the common terrace for breakfast, what a perfect start for every day!

my friends were very pleased with the spa treatments, the pool, I much rather enjoyed horse back riding a lot!!!
even for unexperienced people, it's easy to handle the horses, a professional guide (he made us always feel safe, very friendly, a real pro with the horses!) will be with you to show you the trails to a hidden waterfall (with a natural pool for swimming) or riding along the beach..... very romantic!
Dinner: very tasteful local cuisine, the chef is an expert (and a good singer!) they also will fulfill special requests, you have to let them know in the morning and they will do their best to provide your wishes! A nice selection of wines completes the dinner.

overall: a very friendly, helpful staff, everybody there is really trying to make your stay as enjoyable as possible!

I really liked the tasteful design of the whole complex, nothing is overdone, just right!
I recommend this hotel for a relaxing vacation, with some activities if you decide, perfect for couples or a bunch of friends!

We had been 'slumming' it in cheaper, more basic places during our 2 week trip in Costa Rica and decided to treat ourselves for 2 nights - and this was definitely worth it. We have really fond memories and beautiful pictures from our stay at Nature Lodge.

The room (Superior Pacific) was spotless and the outdoor shower was a real treat. It was very private and we really felt like we were alone as we had no distractions from any other guests. The location is a little far from town if you don't have a car, but we had planned to spend all day at the lodge so it didn't bother us. You DO need a car if you're planning to get into town though. Or you can get a taxi and the hotel will be happy to call one for you.

We spent the whole day relaxing around the lodge and the staff were not overbearing - they just let us be, so we really felt like we had the whole place to ourselves and were really able to relax.

We really enjoyed staying in luxury here and were energized to go back to less-luxurious(!) hotels for the rest of our trip. Having said that, all the places we stayed were great!

There's only one word to describe this fantastic hotel: PERFECT. The rooms and the location itself is in the best shape you can imagine. The very friendly people make you feel like at home from the moment you will arrive. Service ist outstanding, Food and Drinks are excellent and the views to the ocean or the jungle are fantastic.
Wake up with birds and monkeys and get your first coffee on your patio. The owned horses are in an excellent shape and condition.
Everybody who has plans for a trip to Montezuma should come to this fine place.
State of the art.!!!

After spending 12 days travelling Costa rica and meeting lots of lovely, friendly people we were so excited about spending our last 6 days in Nature lodge. The lodge itself and location is amazing, really lovely rooms and a great place for seeing and hearing howler monkeys, birds and lizards etc, however the general vibe and friendliness was not a patch on that. It was the most unfriendly place we stayed and we felt quite un -welcomed which is a shame as its a really comfortable lodge - I just think the owners/staff need to be sent to learn some basic manners and hospitality training! The restaurant was not really a great place to eat either as you have to let them know by 12 mid day if you want to eat there what you want to eat. Its not the place to stay if you want a friendly drink and meal and chat to the bar staff etc. If you do decide to stay here, make sure you have a car to travel to Montezuma and beaches nearby as its quite a walk from Montezuma.

Had wanted to stay at this particular place for a while and we were excited to be going. But the experience left us underwhelmed. We picked a jungle room which did have a view of the jungle and own terrace but the terraces butt up against each other so there is no privacy and the front of the room opens straight out on to the restaurant/bar area which even in low season kept up a steady noise making early nights impossible. The style of the place strives toward luxury but fell short in some areas. The room are simple yet classy but we did have an ant problem in the bathroom and in the heavy rain the drain outside our room blocked flooding the step well in front of the door making it impossible to get out. While these areas were quickly remedied by the lovely costa rican lady on reception with lots of gesticulating because we couldnt speak each other's language! (her kindness salvaged the experience really) we wouldnt really have expected them particularly in a place that sells itself as luxurious and was one of the more expensive places we stayed. We stayed two nights and we were happy to leave which was a shame because we had looked forward to this place in particular. Pros - the food at the restaurant was fabulous and the chef even cooked a special vegetarian meal as there was not one on the menu (even if he did seem slightly angry the whole time!) and the horse-riding was wonderful - we took a 4 hour ride on the beach & the horses were in good shape and well cared for and the riding was very good. Oh and the resident cat was adorable!
