We as a group of first-timers in Costa Rica started our trip from this wonderful place in Cahuita and it had been unbeaten by other hotels and villas we have had an opportunity to stay in Costa Rica. The host Daniel and his staff did a great job to allow us adapting to different climate zone (by serving shots of vodka from freezer to cool us down) and 8 hour time zone difference (at least explaining that a wake-up call at 5-6 a.m.will come from local Howler monkeys, that he has nothing to do with it). If you are planning to take an excursion for wildlife seeing, then don't bother a lot: wake up earlier by the signal of monkeys cry, grab a cup of coffer and sit in a terrace or near pool and enjoy local sloths wrangling just in front of you or iguanas sunbathing in the palms, not to mention myriad of birds you can see without even leaving the lodge - what a nice place to stay.
Once we wanted to try the local made chicharones, Daniel came to rescue and arranged them for our farewell dinner and by the way we have had there the best (real) pina colada in Costa Rica too.
All our group would like to wish success to Daniel and keep vodka in freezer for our next possible visit...

Room Tip: Howler monkeys are heard from all rooms... unfortunately, so loud sometimes they are. But you use to...

We stayed here 5 nights beginning of September 2015. Daniel is a wonderful host and a you can have a lot of fun with him! During our home we felt very welcome and although we planned to stay only 2-3 nights we stayed 5.
Our spacious & clean room came with a king size double bed and the best shower we had in Costa Rica. The swimming pool is a big plus as is the option of having dinner at the hotel. The quality of the food is really good and we enjoyed every meal. For breakfast there are three options which are all good. We loved the fresh juice, fruit and pancakes :-). Cahuita is a perfect place to stay a couple of nights. The Cahuita park is nice and we saw snakes, sloths and monkeys there. 30 min. away is the ARA Project center (best place to see the green Ara very close, reservation obligatory) and Puerto Viejo is also only 30 min. away. However, the best wildlife spotting was at the resort where we saw a 2 sloths very close by (and moving), Keel Billed Tucan, Aracari (small Tucan), Howler monkeys, Iguana and frogs. Please note, this is wildlife so no guarantee although Daniel mentioned these animals come very often to the resort but if you only stay one night your chances are less then if you stay 2+ nights...

We loved it here and wish Daniel all the best! Normen and Tessa, The Netherlands

Daniel and his staff have created something truly unique with their business.
It is not just a hotel. It was like we were staying with close friends for a week.
The food was exquisite! It was a perfect getaway to relax from a day of activities.
I enjoyed the fact that it was not off the main strip of other hotel lining the beach.
The gardens are kept so well that you feel like you are alone in the rainforest!
Daniel really bent over backwards to help us out on all accounts, even when
a local ATM ate my credit card!
This was a great place to stay for our first big international trip.
Thank you again!!

Room Tip: Room # 6 was nice. You will get used to the howler monkeys

I know about hotels, because that's what I've studied, so these guys have a lovely place, surrounded of nature, also the service overall is great, Daniel the owner a great host, things to improve maybe to accept AMEX, besides that no complaints.

I enjoyed my stay at Suizo Loco Lodge as the staff were really friendly, everywhere was clean and the breakfast was amazing - we tried 2 out of the 3 options and thought they were lovely. The grounds are also well kept and you do indeed see a variety of wildlife, which is a plus. There are a couple of reasons I have only given a 3. The water is solar powered and therefore when it is a cloudy day (days were cloudy when we stayed) there is no hot water for the shower, which I found difficult. The wifi also drops out regularly. Finally, it is a little out the way - the beach is further than you think and the road leading up to the lodges is not fun to drive on! It is however very peaceful and so if you don't intend to go anywhere, it might be a good choice.
