Rooms very dated. Happy hour is v. confusing, rather than 2 for 1 on cocktails, it is only 20% off, however this is not clear from the notice. Quite a trek to and from the centre. Not many facilities, a lot more better places available.

Hello dear Colin, thank you for your feedback. We are sad to know you had not the experience we wanted. About your room, every time you do not feel 100% happy, you can let us know on site, and we will be willing to offer you more options in order to get your complete satisfaction. About "happy hour", it is important to keep this clear, this is a "happy hour" for the discounts we offer, not necessary 2x1 on drinks. Thank you again, best regards.

The room was clean and beautifully arranged and the included breakfast buffet was just right before a day of exploring. The location is good - lots of little shops and restaurants nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We recommend this property and we would stay here again!

Great lodge. Good sized rooms. Fantastic, helpful staff. Good food. Good location 20 min walk into town but with amazing restaurants within 10 min walk. Near butterfly gardens. No pool or hot tub which would have been nice.

Hello dear bonniekF6448XK, thank you so much for your feedback, it is very important for us. Yes, we are located very closed to the town in a tranquil area. Yes, we do not have pool or jacuzzi but our sister property Hotel Poco a Poco does, according to the operation you can go and uses the amenities for free. Thank you so much again, best regards.

Guest room: Low, thin mattresses. Comfortable pillows. Half-door shower, which meant that water flowed all over the floor while we took a shower. Safe and coffee maker, but no refrigerator. No heating unit. Tiny TV with lots of stations. No closet space. Cozy lighting. Pretty pictures on the wall. Service: Very good. Maid promptly brought blanket upon our request at office. Breakfast: Best we had had in four hotels we stayed in our Costa Rica trip. Dinner: Reasonably priced. Good quality and quantity. Pool: There was no pool or hot tub as we had at the other hotels in Costa Rica. Grounds: Attractive, with pretty fountains. I might have considered giving this lodge a better rating if the mattresses were better, and if there was a refrigerator and heating unit in the room. They need to fix the shower so that guests don’t have to mop up the floor after a shower.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a complete shower door. The other rooms seem to have them. That would help...

I can’t say enough good things about this Lodge. Hats off to Carlos at the front desk; this man was so awesome checking us in and explaining all the details to our group. He answered all the questions , helped us book tours , helped us book our Covid test for return home and so many more things; he was just amazing. The lodge was super clean, and everyone worked hard all the time to keep it that way. Things feel a bit damp in the room: but come on, we are in the cloud forest so be prepared. I didn’t care because the beauty we were emersed in was so amazing. I’m just writing this for those who like to find things to complain about so you are aware. The bar tender made the best Cosmo’s. I went with 4 of my good friends and this stay was one of 3 in our adventure around Costa Rica and it was my favorite place. Would go again for sure. You must do the hanging bridges tour while you are there. Our Costa Rican vacation was amazing!!
