This place lives up to the hype. Just wonderful being on the edge of the Pacific and hiking into Corcovado. Stayed in the Tiki hut which was awesome and just like living in the jungle for a few days. So unique to wake up to scarlet macaws, iguanas and coatis so close you could almost touch them. Great views to the beach and spectacular sunsets at happy hour- so relaxing. This place seems to attract interesting people and Terry, Katya and the staff treat everyone like family. A great off the grid experience everyone should try at least once in their lifetime,

Room Tip: The tiki hut was amazing

This was our kids first international trip and this hotel couldn’t have been more perfect. The hotel is surrounded by nature and birds and monkeys abound. The beach is a quick walk away and you will have it all to yourself. We stayed in the Monkey house and we felt it was the perfect room for us, great views of the ocean and of course monkey sightings daily. The food is fresh and delicious. Terry and Reade were great. We felt like we were staying at a friend’s house not a hotel. Terry even made sushi for our girls when he found out it was one of their favorite foods. As an amateur photographer I couldn’t take enough photos much to my wife’s dismay. We will definitely be back.

Stayed: February 2018, travelled with family

My sister and I had a wonderful open room, right in to the nature, the biggest problem in this fantastic lodge was always the question, if i just stay in my hammock what is in the other perfect lookouts to see. The only solution is to stay long enough, to start the day in the paradise of the lagoon with a kayak, let them plan a incredible guided tour to the park, where you even meet a tapir, beside many other animals. Take the stairway to heaven up go down any other way with wonderful views and meetings. And to make your day perfect Terry is cooking incredible good tasting stuff out of veggies and fish, best food in costa rica, and don`t forget to start and end your dinner on the chillout station, where Reed i called the master of margaritas. What a great combination far away from everything.
Hard to find a place like that!! Scarlet Macaws all around!!

My wife and I stayed here as the final part of our honeymoon adventures through Costa Rica and we absolutely loved it!!! It was a great culmination of our trip, allowing us to relax and unwind after the previous weeks excursions. Though I had stayed here before, she had not and it and the owners and staff have made a (positive) lasting impression. We will certainly be visiting again!

Amazing experience, _best_ place to stay in Costa Rica. If you are in Costa Rica, stay at the Lookout Inn for at least 2, better 3 or 4 days! I usually never write reviews (just do not have the time), but feel it is worth here.

The owners Terry and his wife Katya build this place some 20 years ago and put all their love in it, which you feel immediately once you put foot on the hotel.
Amazing are: The view, the rooms, the family-style buffet for dinner, lunch and breakfast (the food is really really good!), the complete staff members, all the friendly animals around the lodge, the relaxation you feel...list is endless.

We arrived by an open-seated mini helicopter (called gyrocopter or autogyro) which we flew across Costa Rica for two years in a row now in February. On our second time this year the thing we looked forward most to was visiting the Lookout Inn again, even though Costa Rica has unbelievable many beautiful and amazing things to see.

For us it is clear: Even without the gyrocopter trip, we want to come back here every year from now on. Hope to meet you again next year Terry, Katya, Reid and the rest.

Greetings from Germany

Room Tip: Book the penthouse, it is worth every single cent.
