The Lodge was very clean, quite and cozy. The location is very convenient to all area attractions. The food was amazing and the staff very friendly. The views are spectacular during the day and at night. I loved playing games at night by the beautiful fireplace. I had a GREAT experience, for a very affordable price. I would pick Poas...

Summary of our experience at Poas Lodge (not to be confused with Poas Volcano Lodge!): The hosts were very friendly, the accommodations were absolutely spectacular, the breakfast was wonderful and the price was extremely reasonable. By far the best value and the nicest place we stayed out of the 7 places we stayed in Costa Rica - and at almost...

This place is great, I'd highly recommend it. The views are amazing, and the location is great! The owners are incredibly nice and courteous, always going out of their way to help you, and make you feel welcome. The food was great, and it was just wonderful. This is what I call relaxation, you just feel welcome, and the place...

The unassuming exterior of the Poas Lodge belies everything about the service it offers. Their website refers to the rooms as "humble", but we think "charming" is more to the point. Granted, our room was small. But it was fully appointed, with comfy bedding, open Internet access, a large flatscreen TV with a gazillion channels, and above all, an absolutely...

Thank you for the wonderful review. Over the last 2 years we have tried to improve every aspect of Poas Lodge. Our first project was upgrading the rooms, we are glad to hear you enjoyed our efforts. We are currently upgrading our entrance to make that unassuming exterior more inviting.

Nothing was too much trouble. We arrived in Costa Rica and were met at the airport by Mark, from South Africa, who drove us up to the lodge and then offered us refreshments even though it was late at night. The view from the restaurant and rooms is absolutely staggering, espcially after dark - you look down into the central...

Poas lodge is a fantastic base for anyone visiting Poas Volcano. We only stayed for one night but wished for longer. Mark and Oliver were wonderful hosts and the place is a true hidden gem. Our room was spacious, had an AMAZING view of the valley, free WiFi and a very comfy bed. Food was excellent - both dinner and...

Poas Lodge (please don't confuse it with Poas Volcano Lodge, which is located a few kilometers down the road!) is quite close to the entrance of Poas Volcano National Park, it is near the peak of the mountain, so it can get cool up there (they have heaters in the room - the heat isn't that powerful, so you have...

Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed the stay with us at Poas Lodge. It is always good to get feedback from our guests. The road coming to Poas from the North via San Miguel and Vara Blanca is in bad shape. The road from San Jose and Alajuela is paved all the way and in...

This is a very small B & B conveniently located near the entrance to Poas Volcano Park. The innkeepers, Mark and Oliver, are gracious hosts and eager to please guests.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated near the summit of Poas Volcano, this is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the most spectacular views of the central valley of Costa Rica. We are just 5 minutes to Poas Volcano National Park, 10 miles to La Paz Waterfall Gardens and 45 minutes to the airport. Poas Lodge is more a B&B than your typical lodge. We offer clean, comfortable rooms at reasonable rates. We also offer free wi-fi, cable and coffee machines in rooms. Our restuarant is open for guest most nights with a fresh daily menu. Breakfast is included with the rooms. The atmosphere is just amazing at our lodge, just ask any of our happy guests. We invite you to visit our home. Children 8 years old or older can be accommodated at the property. Check-in is from 3pm to 8 pm local hotel time; Check-in after 8pm requires advance notice. ... more   less
