Very friendly welcome, most helpfull and enthousiast staff Coffee and water free available Good swimming pool Towels for swimming pool
Food was not really what we expected. Very very dark when lights are out
We were never told that you could book tours through Labaula. We booked our turtle tour with another group and we were late getting there because we had to wait on a water taxi. As we were waitng we saw several people from the Labaula get on a boat and leave to go on the tour. We were disappointed that we couldn't go with the other people and had to sit around for another boat going to the exact same place.
The staff is more than perfect. They are wonderfull. Nice pool. Fabulous buffet!
The lodge is a little remote, but that' s a choice. We liked it.
Staff is really friendly and helpful to organize activities around Tortuguero. The place is also nice with the view on the laguna and the garden with the animals.
A lick of paint on the doors of the nice bedrooms would be a good idea.
Lovely staff, beautiful place
Food served in the restaurant not very tasty...
Nice area, cool swimming pool
Poor service, no hot water, old facilities and overpriced tours. You take the same tour for less on the main land
They charge me differente price from what I booked.
The staff was friendly although they did not know much about rentals or other questions I asked. The restaurant food was okay. The pool was awesome.
I didn't like the location. You only have access to the hotel itself literally and have to pay $3/pp eachway to get to the main town by water taxi. It depends what you want though. The main town is not as nice as the area where the hotel is and you have much more of a chance of seeing animals near the hotel. I just didn't like being stuck at a hotel. You can walk around the premises and that's it. Our hotel room had a broken drawer and no accessible outlets.
you need to take a $3 boat ride every time you want to go to the village
We loved how personable everyone was - especially Luis and Caleb. Luis helped us get hooked up with a shuttle for our return trip and also provided us with any information we asked for.
the bartender - I think his nickname was "flaco" was very rude to my partner who was merely asking for a drink.
The rooms were clean. Swimming pool was nice. The breakfast was really good, especially bananas in sweet sauce with pancakes. Very quite place.
To get there you need to take a water taxi (3 USD per person).
nice place ,cute rooms ,swimming pool ,good food in the restaurant.
far from the village every time you want to get there you need taxi boat (3 $ one way)
Staff, food and location
Difficult to get too. Rooms were very dingy. Way overpriced. Just a run down, uncomfortable place
clean. water in show is hot. 3 min to town by water taxi. staff are very helpful.
nothing. the wall could be thin. but the next door is very quiet during our stay. so no complain.
Welcome drink on arrival and lovely pool and friendly staff
away from centre and very confined to property It is 3 per person for the water taxi
