We spent the week after Christmas here with our family and two other families and had an INCREDIBLE time. This lodge is nestled in the mountains south of Tamarindo -- it is off the beaten path in the best way but still within in a 15 minute drive to beautiful beaches and activities. You feel like you are by yourself, cut off from the pressures of the world, in this small resort. There are 8 rooms, all overlooking mountains and jungle, with porches and windows that allow you to read and relax while hearing the sound of the breeze, birds, and the occasional monkey. Laurence and her staff were tuned into our every need -- whether it was arranging a beach BBQ at night, booking a boat, or just having dinner in. Our kids loved frolicking in the pool (while the adults relaxed and chatted and sipped drinks in the open air bar). This a great spot for a solo retreat, or to take over with a group. We had a GREAT time.

We just spent a week at the Mikado with two other families. We took over the whole place (all 6 bungalows) and had a fantastic time. Laurence - who owns the place - has designed a perfect little slice of heaven. The bungalows are newly built but feel incredibly warm and comfortable. The views from all the bungalows feel so special: like you are in treehouse in the jungle. But the bathroom feels like you are in a 4 Seasons hotel - even though you invariably hear the sounds of nearby monkeys playing in the trees. The pool is wonderful. Laurence is extremely knowledgeable and helpful at sorting out excursions and meals, and relaxation. It is off the beaten path, but not far from the magical town of Tamarindo or the beautiful beaches all around.
I highly recommend visiting Costa Rica and staying at The Mikado Natural Lodge.

Everything about Mikado was a dream. There is such care and attention given to every detail. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. My bungalow had a view all the way over the mountains to the ocean. Everything was incredibly clean and Lolo (the owner) and the staff were always ready to help with anything. Peaceful, beautiful, amazing.

I recently spent an entire week here for a retreat and was blown away by the care, ease and love that went to creating this space. everything is designed perfectly from the pool to the private bungalows, to the details of seating and handing out areas and everything in between. Laurence, the hotel owner is so kind and easy going. She made sure that every single thing we wanted was made available to us, including good food, arranging activities, and helping us schedule amazing massages on the private decks of our bungalows. This is a perfect getaway for both work and rest. I loved it and didn't want to leave. Highly recommend!!

Hospitality from the owner is amazing, we were looked after and cared for with great pleasure. The room is spacious and beautifully fitted. The staff were all welcoming and helpful too. The infinity pool is stunning and so are the views to look out onto. Wifi available!
