Wonderful artsy lodge with amazing hosts

Review of Jucáhuje Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 15, 2017
My husband, 1.5 year old son, and I stayed here in July 2017 for one night on our way to the Arenal Volcano area. Juan Jesus and Carlos were so kind and accommodating. Great artistic decor; clean, quiet, comfortable room; unique; affordable. Great breakfast in the back courtyard. Beautiful views of surrounding mountains and volcanos. Sarchi is a cute town, not very touristy. Best part was practicing my Spanish with Juan Jesus! Highly recommend.

very affordable and a special homey stay...owners Juan and Carlos made an extra effort to provide vegetarian meals ... i needed to get an early start to reach the Poas Volcano before the clouds rolled in...original artwork and atmosphere...be sure to use waze or another gps app as the spot is off the beaten track...

Muchas gracias, por su opinión, y mas por su visita y paso por nuestro, hotel.
Usted, pudo comprobar el esfuerzo, que estamos haciendo para poder hacer de este entorno mas hogareño como apunta usted, y a la vez lleno de creatividad, y arte. Siempre basándonos, en el reciclar, la reutilizar, recuperar.
Como dice muy bien. Un hotel fuera de lo común, que le hace diferente, y querido.
Nos falta mucho, por eso, estaríamos encantados de que cuando vuelva por Costa Rica nos tenga en cuenta. Y tendremos muy a mano el seguir cuidando le, incluso en sus gustos alimenticios y nutricionales vegetarianos. Un saludo de Juan Jesús y Carlos Humberto. Namaste.

It was a bit of a trick to find the hotel but worth the search. Juan Jesus and Carlos are truly artistic and wonderful hosts. Carlos speaks excellent English but I enjoyed practicing my Spanglish on the very patient Juan Jesus. Breakfast was delicious. We felt totally safe and right at home. I wholeheartedly recommend their home.

Room tip: All the rooms are pleasant.

Hola Estimada Linda, nos ha encantado tu comentario, y si siempre recuerdo, tu ganas de aprender, Español y las mías de aprender ingles, menos mal que esta Carlos Humberto. Pero así practicamos, algo. Para nosotros, fue un orgullo tenerla en nuestros Hotel, una persona con buen gusto y que sabe, reconocer la diferencia, y usted, la marcaba, una joya, y una casa, no un establecimiento, mas donde te dan servicios, de alta calidad, sino donde, nos entregamos hacia nuestros clientes al final amigos. Un saludo, y espero que las cabras, estén todas, bien así como el chanchito (cerdo) Salud y bien

This place is such a gem!! Upon pulling in there was a beautiful mosaic on the entry wall made with recycled materials. So cool. The warm greeting I received upon entering and the eclectic design of the foyer led me to believe I had made a good choice. Each room was decorated differently with its own bathroom. You can tell that they have put a lot of care into creating a very artistic and unique establishment. The environment was so welcoming, easy going, and open. I spent a good portion of my stay talking with the owners and other guests on the porch. In the morning they made me breakfast and I was sad to leave. It was one of my favorite experiences in Costa Rica, and I will go out of my way to return the next time in the country.

Nosotros Carlos Humberto y Juan Jesús, no sentimos contentos de haber echo de su estancia en Costa Rica, mas agradeble, y feliz, y a la vez fue un placer conocerlo y tenerlo entre estas cuatro paredes, que como usted dice, estamos trabajando, para que sea un espacio único y diferenciado. Y claro que nos encantaria que nos siguiera, visitando en sus proximas visitas, y seguir charlando y compartiendo con ustedes, un rato, en el recibidor. Un grato saludo, y nuestros mejores deseos, salud y bien. Muchas Gracias.

The hotel it's self is very funky and really feels like you have found a gem. The owners are fabulous, took care of all our needs, and even took the time to hang out with us, which was a delight. Sarchi is a great little town surrounded by absolutely gorgeous scenery. I would definitely stay here again on my next trip to Costa Rica.

This place is a gem. Nothing short of an exceptional experience with Carlos and Juan Jesus. They are the kindest hosts and truly care about their hostel/hotel and their guests. Your stay comes with good conversations and a delicious breakfast in this artsy space. I highly recommend this lodge for all types of vistors, friends, couples or those stopping by for a business trip. Thanks for the stay!!
