This is a great little place to stay! Sweet owners! The rooms are well kept up and really clean. The area is nice and quiet but not too far from lots of activities to do.You also get a discount on their mangrove tour. We loved it!

We had read very positive reviews but still couldn't believe how welcoming the owners were. We were looking for a place that was convenient to quepos and Manuel Antonio and couldn't have asked for more. The mangrove tour is not to be missed. Being with them added a personal touch to our trip that we did not expect.

We booked this lodge at last minute and the price was reasonable. I was expecting a mediocre hotel. But, to my surprise, it was excellent lodge. The room quality was great, the hosts were friendly, service was top quality. I recommend this lodge strongly. If you rent a car, this is the best place at the best price. If you...

We were so impressed with Bernard and his lovely wife who treated us like family! For the price, this was the nicest place we stayed during our week in Costa Rica. Our lovely hostess showed us around their beautiful garden, explaining each plant and tree. One could plainly see the love they have for their Kayak Lodge surroundings. Bernard was...

Bernal's Airbnb was the first place in Costa Rica where we really began to explore the country. There's a big Kayak Lodge sign pointing to the dirt road that leads to the property. Bernal was gracious enough to scoop us up from the market where the bus dropped us off. We arrived in the late afternoon and jumped on the...

I stayed at Kayak Lodge for my last night in the Quepos area after leaving my hostel. This is located off of the main road, but it is tucked away down a long dirt road. There is a small grocery store at the end of the dirt road so that you can buy snacks or food for lunch or dinner....

Bernal and Marlene were exceptional hosts. Their lodge is located about 10 minutes outside of Quepos, and I only stayed here one night because I arrived in Quepos/Manuel Antonio area a day earlier than I had planned originally.
