My husband and I loved It here! We spent the first four days of our honeymoon here and left with the most wonderful memories! There was so much to do and we tried to take advantage of every tour that was offered! The waterfall repelling was amazing and we also really enjoyed the horseback riding with Miguel. We loved hiking...

We had mixed views about this lodge. It was not close to one of the great national parks and the bird watching trip takes place on a public road bordered by private farm land and full of vehicles from other lodges. We had some good sightings of birds and distant monkeys but the context was very touristy and the surroundings...

We stayed 4 nights here and had a very enjoyable stay. The staff were very attentive - all of them remembered our names and always asked how we were. The food was very good and there was a wide choice. Pool was lovely and warm. We walked down to the beach each day - hard work in the heat but...

A great experience in the most exotic rain forest setting. All personnel (from domestic staff through to the owners - who are on site) were extremely friendly addressing guests on first name terms. Food was delicious, well presented and plentiful. The setting of the pool was tranquil and a beautiful spot just before sunset to watch the toucans and other...

A 45 minute ride on an unpaved bumpy road from Port Jimenez brings you to El Remanso, a fabulous small "resort in the forest". We stayed in one of the ground floor rooms in the building over looking the pool area with partial ocean view; it was perfect!! Awakened each morning (early!!) by "howler" monkeys in the trees, we enjoyed...

This place opened in the 1990s and is still looking after its guests to a very high standard. There are some rooms overlooking the pool, and some situated more privately away from the main hub of the hotel. We had one of the former, and loved it. There was a superb view over the forest, with the sea in the...

El Remanso, which means "the backwater" is unbelievably great if you like wildlife, are interested in being in a real tropical rainforest on the Pacific coast and want to be pampered and well fed. We are not used to such luxury, but we did take a "standard" room, and that was plenty luxurious. We didn't have views of the ocean...

After a fairly tortuous road journey during which our driver/guide explained much of the set-up at the lodge, we arrived in time for lunch and a welcome drink. Throughout the stay, the food was excellent and portions (for me) were large. The staff always had huge smiles on their faces and were more than happy to help if asked. The...

There is lots of good things to say about El Remanso - everything is to the highest standards.....but make sure you take the time to walk down to the beach, it is very beautiful. We had a deluxe room with a wonderful balcony - we thought it a worthwhile upgrade. The guides were great.....actually all the staff were!

El Remanso is a beautiful boutique lodge in the middle of the jungle. Surrounded by nature, close to secluded wild beaches it is a nature lovers paradise. We stayed in one of their newest luxury villas with private pool, outside and inside shower and amazing views of the jungle where we could observe an abundance of wild live from our...
