Just fabulous, we loved it here. Very "organic" yet comfortable. Staff was terrific.


This would have been our favorite place if it weren't for the food quality. The eggs were overcooked. The cook/waitress served the food and never returned to refill water etc. We had to get up and call into the kitchen to get service.


The place is dated and overly touristy and it was too close to the highway for our liking (traffic noise). However the grounds were very nice and make up for that. We did see a fair bit of wildlife in the surroundings.


I really enjoyed my stay. I really appreciated the social interaction with the head of PR at the lodge. He was in the restaurants throughout the day and made it a point to chat people. That was a very personal touch that I enjoyed.


We loved this place, the access to the rainforest and area around the lodge was good. We liked the way meals were organised and thought this was great value. The viewing platform by the restaurant offers a huge variety of wildlife and we saw toucans, a coati and raccoons close up from there. It is a fabulous place


We loved this private place. Lovely grounds, great tours, excellent bird and animal watching. Loved the wood-fired pizza. Lovely breakfast included. We booked the cacao tour from the hotel and it was outstanding!!!!


Also,very typical...would go back tomorrow no problem


Somewhat rustic, the stay was very enjoyable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I took an excellent bird hike before we left.


Was surprised by the open screened window lattices. But then we really didn't know what to expect at an 'ecolodge' After we got used to it, it was a very interesting and different experience, much different than the impersonal tourist hotels.
The humidity caused some comfort problem in that the sheets were clammy when you went to bed.
