This hotel is super cool! (If you love the rainforest type) I stayed here 3 days and it was an awesome place to relax and get away from the city life. But a 10 minute drive from the nearest town to buy anything you may need. There are all types of activities you can do here from hiking to horseback...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 August 2016

It is rustic but very comfortable. The staff is freindly and helpful. The Owner was very helpful with planning our excursion into the rainforest. He gave great suggestions and even helped arrange a fantastic boat tour of the river. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was relaxing and the the fresh water pool was inviting. I can't wait to go back!

We stayed for 2 nights, but wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is about 30 minutes (by car) from La Fortuna and the drive is, for the most part, paved and easy. The last 1km is rather bumpy and unpaved, but it's not a big deal. Four-wheel-drive may be required for the last part. The grounds are phenomenal,...

I had to call internationally FIVE times (They don't have an 800 number) and never got someone to confirm my reservation. Each time I called I spoke with someone at the "resort" who promised to email or call with a reservation confirmation code. None ever came. We had nonrefundable airline tickets. This anniversary trip could not have been more stressful...

We stayed here for three days and loved everything about the hotel. It's reasonably close to Arenal if you're going over there and the hotel is in the middle of a forest so there's also a lot to do around there as well. We didn't get a chance to hike around the hotel, but we went horseback riding and Diego...

This resort is so beautiful. It's secluded from the busier parts of Fortuna and surrounded with wildlife, beautiful plants and farms. The staff is incredibly accommodating - take a horseback ride with Diego if you have the chance and then sit and chat with a waitress at the bar! It's convenient to Arenal for hikes and hot springs, but you'll...

We didn't want to leave!! From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed and like family. Everyone from the front desk staff to the restaurant staff were accommodating and welcoming. We used Costa Rica Driver for our trip transportation and they got us to and from our destinations safely and promptly. Once at Chachagua, Diego made our family feel welcomed....

I’ve been visiting Costa Rica for years, and this Lodge is by far the best thing I’ve experience in this price range. The rooms are cozy, clean, cool, and BEAUTIFUL. The jungle life is out the window, around the corner, and pretty much every where all the time. I loved chilling in the hammock and listening to the birds. Their...
