I can not understand it. On the same day, the guests KGandTM, Rossler and WernerLindau stayed in our hotel. These three families were very satisfied. Check out the reviews! On departure, you were asked if everything was fine. The answer was yes. The awards were announced before the check-in and the room was visited by you. Why the report? Did...

Funky (in a good way), airy and open small hotel set on a jungle hillside, this was the perfect place to relax for a few nights after days on the ocean around Bahia Bellena. The friendly German owners welcomed us to their recently opened, freshly painted place. Nice pool. The simple bright rooms have ceiling fans, many have nice views...

We spent 5 nights unwinding and relaxing at the Lookout. The views are incredible - full panoramic vistas and the sounds of the rainforest were amazing. There are some great nearby activities for all ages, which the hotel does a excellent job of organizing, though we were happy to spend much of our day lazing in the pool. The rooms...

A wonderful view over the pacific, picturesque terrace, hummingbirds, a fresh breeze from the sea; Denise and Eduardo were taking care of us, showing us the best restaurants and secret spots around. Beside the pool there could be some more furniture and shadow.

This hotel was the perfect destination for 3 girlfriends to relax, sight see and just hang out, reading a book, cooling off in the pool and enjoying the peaceful surroundings! It is important to rent a car when you stay at the Lookout Hotel. Restaurants, waterfalls and beaches are minutes away by vehicle. Easy drive to zipline and mangrove tours....
