Loved Manatus Hotel! Nice set up, beautiful grounds, lovely rooms with fantastic air conditioning, only 12 bungalows which make it nice and private compared to the other lodges with 180 capacity plus. It's also the only place that has air-conditioning which is a huge bonus especially after hiking through the jungle, so great to cool down with. In addition to... More

Though a tiny bit pricey, it is worth the splurge. Large rooms with comfy beds, tasty meals included in the price, and knowledgeable staff provide the perfect balance of true relaxation and ecotourism.
