All the reviews praising the View from the Rooms TRUE (See my attached pic - this was the view from our Standard Room). Are you kidding there was nothing standard about this room.

Well, the notoriously fickle Poas Volcano was hiding behind fog, clouds, and sulphuric gasses during our visit, but thankfully, our experience at Poas Lodge made up for it. Half restaurant/bar, half lodge, it looks pretty unassuming from the outside. But inside, you'll find a rather sophisticated yet cozy restaurant with an incredible view of the San Jose valley. On the...

This was one of our best find while we were vacationing in Costa Rica. Mark and Oliver provide some great customer service during our stay and were very nice to accommodate our kids.

The Poas Lodge and Restaurant was one of the best parts of our vacation. The hotel was clean, quiet and welcoming. And the view was unlike anything I have ever seen. The rooms were very modern and I wanted to pack up the bed and take it home with me. We arrived at night and got to wake up to...

We were so thrilled to wrap up our honeymoon in Costa Rica with two nights at the Poas Lodge.
