The prices of breakfasts and dinners too expensive
200 characters not enough to describe the wonderful staff here! Viviana greeted us with cold drinks when we arrived, gave us explanation of tours, activities and tour of the grounds. Willis our tour guide for turtle nesting and jungle cruise; funny and very knowledgeble. everyone else, Norton, maria, luis... attentive, helpful staff .. 10 star service, grounds, rooms...
I would say it was perfect and just warn people, the howler monkeys will howler and they are loud. we didn't mind them.
Very friendly stuff, clean, perfect view, very helpful to organize whatever needed, fantastic food, nice pool
In the evening bar closed at 22!
Lovely setting, peaceful, idyllic Early morning wildlife tour in the gardens Natural infinity pool friendly staff
inflated prices boat transfer is $35 each compared to public boat @ $2 each plus a short transfer taxi boat from Tortugero to Tortuga for $10 Private turtle tour is about $300 each compared to public tour at $44 and same tour in town at about $20. Restaurant only offers set menu at $35 unless you ask for a la carte or snack menu - another focus on maximising revenue over service Staff service was friendly but slow, eg 5 people in swimming pool with no towels, freezing, had to ask 4 times and wait 20-30 mins to get towels.
Beautiful hotel, very swimming pool and garden. Good restaurant
Not enough free shuttle between the hotel and the village.
The lodge and grounds were beautiful and the staff wonderful. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The guides were very knowledgable and fun to be with. Food was excellent.
Liked it all!
Beautiful location, nice pool and bar. Most of staff was friendly. Some others never cracked a smile no matter how hard I tried.
Food prices a little high for the quality. Sheets in room were scratchy.
Well deserved excellent reputation: Everything we came there for! Great location, just in front of the airstrip, across the canal. You just need to waive, and they send a boat to pick you up. It takes max 2 minutes! Their staff is courteous and most helpful. The food is good. Superb landscaping, well maintained grounds with interesting fauna (e.g. monkeys, birds).
The tour of the National Park, provided by the hotel, was amazing. We saw a variety of wild animals and our guide was very knowledgeable.
The staff was excellent and the service was divine. Having my children see the rain forest, wake up to howling monkeys, iguanas, and all the life that is in it was amazing. It rained most of the time we were there but the hotel had umbrellas, waterproof boots and ponchos for every member of the family. This hotel was built to see mother nature and if this is what you want to see I highly recommend it.
The Mosquitos were everywhere.
2 frogs along the poison dart frog trail.
Loved the pool and iguanas
The shuttle needed to go more often
The staff was very helpful! When we had a problem, they. We're right their to help.most of them spoke good English, which is a great help when you are learning Spanish. My wife and I will come back to the lodge again.
We really had no dis likes. What I would like to see changed is the boat ride to the village. The village is a quite a ways from the lodge. I know it takes gas to run the boat, but if need de a every hr. Run would be great.
Excellent tour guide
Far from tortuguero village with no other way of getting there - the hotel charged USD10 each way for its own boat to bring you there.

Located in beautifully landscaped gardens, very peaceful. I loved sitting overlooking the river in the early morning watching multiple lizards feeding etc. Very comfortable, well appointed rooms.
Daughter was disappointed that could only reach by water taxi`s that ceasted running too early from her point of view!
The staff were amazing and the location wonderful! Meals were overpriced for value in comparison to other less remote locations.
It would have been nice to have a fridge and airconditioning in the rooms - this would have made the room price point worth the value.
Location, location, location. Staff - knowledgable and helpful. Rooms well appointed, clean and comfortable. Wonderful location - go to sleep with sounds of caribbean and jungle noises .... wake to birds and growler monkey calls - FAB - our favourite place in CR
Be aware that the room photos are of the superior rooms - ours were older and a little tired in comparison. Not a complaint, just a comment
Nature just arround the corner.
There were no glass on the Windows, so there was a bit of noise to sleep. The staff didn't call us a táxi. There were few options to eat.
No information before arrival about the free shutle services possible to reach to Hotel
Nice environment and comfortable rooms. The lodge offers The opportunity to make some hiking trials in the nearby and you can see some animals. The swimmingpool is great!
It is far away from The town,where all The excursions depart. There are no many free taxis offered by the hotel,so you have to spend a lot of money going there. It is really expansive considering what it offers and its location.
wonderful nature, peacefull place
- wonderful hotel with a wonderful view - located just in paradise, probably the most beautiful place we ever have been - great room, beautiful pool - very nice and friendly and helpful staff - excellent breakfast and dinner - booked tours or ordered shuttles were absolutely on time - all people there REALLY care for the area, the great surrounding environment and each and every detail - tour from Cariari to the hotel was already more than impressive - soo beautiful !
- that we had to leave this paradise eventually
Staff very professional, location and garden and forest walks
the facility and grounds, the staff, the activities and options, the rooms, the dining area, the trails, the bird walks,
I found the price of meals to be too high and looked for alternatives.
