By far the best place we stayed - so unique. We stayed in the cabin, with balcony, hammock and stunning all round views of the sea seen even when lying in bed! The view was stunning, with the lodge set on the hillside above Dominical. Bert the American owner went out of his way while we stayed there, picking us up from Dominical as we didn't have a 4x4 and even dropping us off in Uvita when we left. Although we had our own cooking facilities with our room we were very glad not to use them- Bert made delicious evening meals and breakfasts, (not to mention the rum cocktails) that we ate on the balcony of the lodge over looking the hillside and sea. He also organised for us to go on a horse riding tour with Woody which was a great day, riding along the ridge and visiting the waterfalls. Delicious food on the tour too!
Certainly somewhere we won't forget!
