Really lovely place - feels like staying in a botanic gardens. The only place in Costa Rica we stayed in that had a coffee maker with proper coffee in the bedroom ! The first time you arrive, you need to give them a call when you're at the entrance gate, so they can let you in. After that, you get... More

Only 4 casitas - on this beautiful lodge. It seems like no one ever says anything bad about anything around here.... We read great reviews about Buena Vista which was more expensive and great review about this lodge. We stopped at Buena Vista first and it was just OK. Sort of older building, the rooms had carpets and smelled musty,... More

We spent our last night here only 20 minutes from the airport. The grounds are gorgeous. The room / bungalow is simple, but the mattress and sheets were very good and the room was clean. Nadine is a lovely host and speaks Spanish with a French accent. I recommend very highly!

We were greeted by the lovely Nadine at the entrance of the ecolodge after a very long flight. We felt welcomed from the moment we stepped through the gate into incredibly well maintained hotel grounds. We cannot recommend this place enough! The atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing, very close to the airport but away from the hassle of the city.... More

After a long journey from the UK we arrived at the gates to this beautiful place and were welcomed by Nadine. A fantastic oasis of calm awaited. Beautiful rooms set in lush vegetation, delicious breakfasts and loads of helpful advice from Nadine. A great base to see so much

It is true that the lodge is located a bit "in the middle of nowhere" and if you do not have your own car, it may be not the best choice; however, if you do have a car, then the hotel is just perfect. Beautiful garden, amazing breakfast terrace, great hostess, very spacious and nicely decorated casitas with a patio... More

This small lodge has 4 casitas and is about a 15 minute drive from the San Jose airport located just above the city of Alajuela. To be honest we were not sure whether to stay here or somewhere closer to the airport, but we found out we made the right decision. The lodge is secure within a gated compound and... More

We spent 2 nights in this beautiful place. The rooms are huge and clean, the garden is amazing and perfectly maintained. The owner Nadine is nice and helpful. This hotel is perfect if you have a car and don't want to sleep in a boring big hotel in San Jose.

This small lodge is a short drive from the airport. It has nice gardens and our room (Bambu) was fine. We weren't there much as we were out sight-seeing during the day but all was well while we were there. We had arranged car hire via the lodge and that worked out fine.
