Our Guests say

about us

This lodge is ideally situated for visiting all of the local attractions but remote enough to feel like you’re right in the cloud forest – which you are. The lodge offers bungalow type accommodation which is well spaced out in the lovely grounds. There are several walking trails and you can take a guided evening walk if you like Apparently there is aenormous fig tree which you can climb too. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are large – the shower was lovely. The lodge itself offers viewing platforms, both inside and out, which offer unrivalled views over the cloud forest and can watch the ziplines that are based in the hotel’s grounds (give this a go – it;s fantastic – even for oldies like us!) The staff here are fantastic so helpful and friendly, they couldn’t do enough for us. But, bets for last, the food served here is really the star of the show. We ate the best meal of our whole trip here (and we stayed in a fie star hotel as part of it) The steak is to die for. Wish we had longer here.

If you’re looking for low-key, this is it. Rooms are nice & comfortable. Being on the very edge of the rainforest was an experience! It sounded like Jurassic park – howler monkeys are loud! The grounds are beautiful & the view from the deck is gorgeous. The staff is so friendly, especially my new buddy in the restaurant,
Carlos. He made sure we were always happy & remembered our food/drink preferences. Breakfast was perfect. Did I mention the dinner was delicious? The seabass was so good, I had it the next night, but topped with fresh shrimp! The only drawback was the 3 hr. trip from the airport (not the hotel’s doing). Very bumpy!

This lodge has wonderful, large rooms beautifully decorated. Comfortable bed. We enjoyed watching birds from the restaurant porch and walking the trails. With a row of Verbina bushes, it is a great place to see a variety of hummingbirds. The staff were more than helpful and eager to serve. The access road is a challenge, especially after rain, but all sorts of vehicles seem to make it to the top, including large buses! Very clean rooms with a good strong, hot shower. Coffee maker and a table and chairs to sit at. Nice seating on the porch, which was perfect for rainy afternoons! Recommended, and we hope to come again!
