The location and wildlife. The room showers are brilliant. The guides were very knowledgeable.
Wildlife Trails Comfort Sounds of the rainforest
Little clarity of breakfast pricing structure
We loved all aspects of our stay, the setting , the boat tours, the service of an especially engaging , gracious, knowledgeable staff. The lodge has an outstanding chef who serves great food.
Excellent for vacation
The food was good and I loved the nature. They have a path through the rainforest on the grounds and the monkeys would hang out behind our room. It was super relaxing and very beautiful. The staff and drinks were amazing.
The food was a little pricey and I know they can't control the weather but it rained a lot and our whole room was windows with just screens which is beautiful. However we were there for 4 nights and all of my clothes ended up getting a little damp from the air. I think 3 nights would have been perfect
Very nice setup all by the gorgeous river, also facing the only airport around. The pool is little small but by the river giving you a very special feeling while swimming. The hotel offers free transportation to the airport and Tortuguero village regularly all day long. Very convenient if you decide to travel with the public boat (more exciting experience) and cheaper than the hotels from La Pavona. A special mention to the care they're giving to the bathrooms, a pure pleasure to take a shower in.
Nothing to mention.
Amenities Jungle in the backyard Breakfast Attention to details Helpfulness of staff Coffee at all hours of the day Snack time
Jungle noises at night. Proper double rooms are nice.
Bad location - must pay every time a boat transfer to the village is needed. Twin rooms are dingy. Expensive to eat in the restaurant.
The upper floor double bed rooms are lovely
They should distinguish between double and twin rooms. We booked a double, as shown in the pictures, and were given tiny twin room. The twin would be great for kids. We asked to swap to the correct room but they said they were fully booked. Given the price of our stay we decided we wanted to leave, then it transpired there was actually a spare double room...we had to deal with rude reception staff in the meantime. We wasted 4 hours waiting for the rooms to be sorted. No-one apologised to us. We had to move luggage ourselves as after 30 minutes the porters had not bothered. Very far from village, which they do say when booking, but what they don't tell you is that you have to pay for every boat ride to the village (10 dollars each way), and that adds up. Expensive meals - came to a huge amount more than any of our other meals in Costa Rica. It was a disappointing stay.
A beautiful hotel with helpful staff! The hotel also has some private land in the area behind the hotel (and free rubber boots to borrow) where you can spot monkeys, sloths, poison dart frogs and exotic birds.
The food was some times sub standard, especially as it was a bit expensive h.
location facilities food personal attention staff wildlife watching boat tour
Location - opposite the airstrip, we literally waited for the plane to arrive while eating breakfast and then went over in the boat. The grounds are lovely. Location in the rainforest is great, if only we'd have been able to get outdoors. Food was lovely. I imagine it is beautiful if it is sunny.
If it's wet (and it is a rainforest) there really is nothing to do! The rain was too heavy for boat trips, the paths were flooded (knee deep apparently) so we couldn't do any walks, there are no TVs ... fine as a honeymoon couple for 2 days but a bit disappointing when you go all that way to see the wildlife and are confined to your room. Also with there being no glass windows and having no air con although it was lovely being able to hear the lovely noises in the morning it meant that our damp clothes stayed wet, resulting in a smelly damp room and a smelly suitcase when we left. It was quite confusing with the meals, there are lots of options but you don't know how much everything costs - it would be nice to have prices on the menu so you knew what you were paying.
We arrived with both ourselves and our luggage soaked through,they skipped the formalities and brought us hot chocolate and a cake, and even dried and ironed our wet clothes for free ! The quality, enthusiasm and knowledge of their guides,( in our case, Priscilla,) couldn't be improved
While seeing the practicality of having no glass in the Windows, it makes for an uncomfortable night in a storm. Since most people stay for a couple of nights, more variation in the menu would be welcome.
In the garden you can spot a lot of wildlife, e.g. sloths, iguanas, butterflies, howler monkey, spider monkeys and frogs. Bed is very comfortable and position is good. Just for information: dinner three-course menu costs $ 35.
Transportation to the village and back cost $ 10 per two people if you do not manage to take the free water taxi offered by the lodge, as schedules sometimes do not meet your needs.
It is excellent in every way. Unable to find fault with anything.
The staff were super friendly and more than helpful. They even got their handyman to fix my shoe!! The location is away from the village so you feel you are in the middle of the rainforest. They have specific times for a boat to take you to the village but were very accommodating. We got numerous shuttle boats when suited us
There were no options at lunch. Nevertheless the set menu was delicious
Rooms, staff, services very good. Very close to wildlife habitat and great 18-mile turtle nesting beach. Just perfect for eco-tourism. Besides, it's just across the river from the airfield, so the time between check-out and arrival on the airstrip is just 3-4 minutes
A bit pricy food and services (although good value for money), plus, for those for whom it is important, it's one of the most remote hotels from the main village in Tortuguero (although it's not a critical distance)
Views from the room and very stylish design of the lodge area. Trails behind the lodge and the availability of boots. Free shuttleservice to the village.
Tours are relatively expensive.
The willing of the staff to help. Breakfast was very good but very expensive.
Turtle nesting trip - great experience, well organised Kayaking trip - great fun, lots of wildlife
Expensive Not much to do other than tours
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.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent, and has hiking grounds (boots provided for free). The wildlife was great. They offer several free boat ride times to and from town, which was very helpful.
The food was good, but very overpriced. They have you trapped a little bit, so they charge quite a bit. Better off going to town for food. Try Wild Ginger.
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.
