Food was ok,we liked it. But when we stayed at the other location ; " Monterverde lodge and gardens " we realized this was far better.
Imagine a room with balcony overlooking the riverside in tortuguero national park; big Iguana's strolling the lawn, with the sound of howler monkeys in the trees nearby. Simply amazing. ..
The rooms have no windows but screens so you can hear all the jungle sounds while a fresh breeze blows through the room; never needed the provided earplugs; we all fell asleep like baby's.
On the grounds of the lodge there is already so much to discover , but the guided tours are even better. We only had two days and did the dawn boat tour and garden walk with our guide Gustavo who showed us sloths, capucin monkeys, cayman, frogs, bats and various wonderfull birds. We unfortunately did not do the turtle tour because of our small children (late).
Wat we really felt during our stay was the relaxed atmosphere : also during the tour: totally no rush. And all personel at the lodge genuinly go out of their way to look after you and help you if needed (Airline mixed up our luggage and staff (especially Eduardo) made sure we got our luggage at the end of our stay in the lodge : even did our laundry without extra cost) .
When we left we felt sorry we had only booked for 2 days...surely not the cheapest place around Tortuguero but if you can afford it it is definitely worth it!
