Spent a couple days here and my boyfriend and i were both very impressed. The rooms were beautiful l, and the staff was exceptional. Emily served us at the restaurant and was just the sweetest! And not to mention the food was delicious too! Angelina gave us a wonderful tour of the place, and the owner tried to help us...

I really liked the room, big windows which normally have a view of the volcano I think (but when we were there, it was cloudy). One day we had to leave real early for a tour and we had breakfast at 6.15, even though it is normally served at 7, good service. Nice jacuzzi. Laundry service was a bit expensive....

This is a beautiful hotel. The room is nicely constructed with very nice endings. Big comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. The surroundings are also nice with beautiful gardens. The only concern was the food. The booked the dinner course at the desk when we checked in. I had the steak filet with soup entry. We hear the microwave sound often....

Such a beautifully landscaped property laying in the valley between two volcanoes. Quiet, lush, and cool. After a day of nature trails it's a perfect place to come back to and unwind. A dip in one of the two jacuzzis doesn't hurt either. The rooms are more like little private cottages and are absolutely gorgeous, with vaulted ceilings and floor...

• Although track from the road is only 200m of rough track, in Green Season you may find exiting back on to the high-way more challenging as it’s steep and 6” rocks. • Don’t know if all rooms the same, but seems you get two double-beds regardless. • No air-con … but even in April the circulating fan did its...

Our family stayed at the lodge while visiting the Tenorio volcanic region. Our stay in the lodge was very nice, clean, comfortable and a very lovely setting. There are lots of trees, flowers, and an abundance of birds. The meals served were simple and very tasty. The service was excellent. We enjoyed the walks around the property. We would stay...

I'm trying to write this with other reviews in mind :) We stayed in cabin #7, a very spacious room with a beautiful patio outside. The bedroom and bathroom were quite clean and modern and our king sized bed was very comfortable. The latter is essential for us as we are very light sleepers. The decor was simple but modern...

Super friendly staff and the rooms were very clean. My favorite part was that you could see the stars out at night from the bed. Highly recommend getting dinner across the street at tilapias Angel. You need 4 wheel drive to get up the hill to the hotel. Also it was a bit difficult getting big suitcases down to the...

I came here on my honeymoon. The grounds were stunning. The view unbeatable. Our bungalow was fantastic. Christine was a lovely host. I have read through some of the other reviews which had negative things to say. Yes, we did share our bungalow with some creatures. There were gecko around, and there were a few insects which found their way...

We loved this lodge. The rooms are beautiful--very spacious with gorgeous views and bathrooms. The whole place is very peaceful and low-key. The owner was so kind and helpful in guiding us towards a number of great places and activities. You need to have your own car! This is a quiet area, and you can't plan on getting around by...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located between the Tenorio and Miravalles volcanoes at an altitude of 1,640 ft, each one of our 12 bungalows has an exceptional view towards the Tenorio volcano. Rooms are spacious, elegant, and perfectly set out for your greatest comfort. Built on our 17 acres property, in the middle of Heliconias gardens, of fruit trees and tropical vegetation surrounding two natural ponds, the Lodge was designed to offer its guests quietness, relaxation, and serenity. In this peaceful environment, along our trails, you will observe hundreds of birds, learn about native trees or take a dip in one of our two red cedar hot tubs. Among the activities we suggest, you should visit the heart of the Tenorio Volcano's National Park, the "Rio Celeste", well known for its astonishing and enchanting turquoise-blue colour. ... more   less
