We stopped here on our way from San Jose to Arenal Springs area, for 1 night. This place is like paradise. It is beautiful, full of birds and nature, and cute jacuzzies and pools. It is on a hill so some climbing is required during your stay, but they have the La Pez waterfalls and a few sanctuaries for animals, which make this place very beautiful and special. Sitting on the balcony felt like sitting in a the middle of a rain forest. The bathtub was amazing, made from stone and full of vegetation. Highly recommended for a romantic stay, or for taking a break in your trip.

We were very lucky to get a breath of fresh air at Peace&Lodge for a couple of nights. Manager Laura wasn’t there but she provided personally all useful info ahead of arrival, and in her absence chef Max, Pepita and all the lovely morning ladies pampered us with great food, great service and heartfelt attention in every moment. Awesome views and best food in our 1st week in CR made it just perfect. Rooms and place are also super comfortable and tastefully set up. Ah - almost forgot the most important final touch: adorable and friendly pet pig (and social media celeb) Brad Pigg, kitten Bruce, cat Bella and the 2 sweet doggies and 2 beautiful horses will make your heart melt and feel home in this beautiful place. Thanks and see you soon!

Positive : The view is outstanding and the hotel is situated in a very quiet area, far from Samara hippy agitation. Well situated next to the beaches of Samara. Air conditioning and Wifi are working really well. The staff is super nice and helpful. Little private terrasse are really pleasant. Negative : We stayed there for 3 nights and felt the experience very average : -Beds are not comfy -The bathroom has an opened wall to outdoor, so many (many) bugs & insects are coming in. -No hot water and water flow in general very poor -Food very average and expensive compare to the other places we visited during the trip -Furnitures in general in the hotel are cheap/spoilt. -Dogs poop in the garden & a domestic pig not really hygienic in the middle of the restaurant.

My bride and I visited the hotel back in 2018. I have a thing about going to the same place 2x when there are so many places to go. Well things change as we met fiends there this week. Ms Laura was as gracious host as the last time. We found out there are no 2xs, everything comes in threes. Thank you for such a fantastic time Ms Laura. SEE YOU AGAIN !!!

A beautiful spot on the hillside. Laura was the perfect host and the meals were excellent. It's a little way out of Samara so if you want to visit the beach or check out other places then a car is a must. the drive up and down there is an adventure.

Hotel Peace & Lodge is just that... Peaceful. Our Earth Bungalow provided the most beautiful sunrise and it was very comfortable. Definitely will need that 4 wheel drive and a good driver to get to that peace!

Great choice of fresh food offered for breakfast and dinner. Lovely pool, accommodation and facilities. Laura was very helpful and welcoming. A little gem off the beaten track but close enough to sightsee local beaches and restaurants.
