We stayed at the lodge during our honeymoon. Getting there was an adventure itself :-). The rooms were ok but not great - especially in the bathroom there was a bad smell from the canal. The food is incredibly expensive and of not very good quality. Wifi was provided but apart from the reception not working very well. The breakfast was ok but also not great.The hot springs are amazing and for free - definitely a visit worth. Still I wouldn't stay in this hotel again.

Heck of a trip from Liberia, but it is nice to be away from everything. Only food options are on-site and not a lot of snack options throughout the day. We brought some snacks with us, which were great to have. Breakfast was great!! They could use some more staff during lunch/dinner service. I was a little concerned with no A/C, but it gets pretty cool in the nights and was happy to have some blankets. Sunset Bar is a great place to be in the evenings. Great sunset and great drinks.

This lodge is on a working ranch up a bumpy unpacked road - luxury it is not! However, it does provide perfectly adequate food and lodging in the back woods, and meets high Eco standards, right down to making its own cleaning materials. Cabins are rustic but clean, with hot water and fans. There is no air conditioning but the rooms cool off at night because of the altitude, so this is not problematic. We had a couple of iguanas living in our patch of garden, and motmots in abundance overhead. ... Read more

We had great time during our stay and I would definitely recommend for people with kids 4.5 year old and up. We have 2 children - 4.5 and 8 and we stayed at the lodge for 5 nights at the end of March. The length of our stay turned out to be perfect because we had time to do all the activities at the lodge, plus we went to Rincon de la Vieja nacional park for 1 day (the Paillas section), and for one day the kids were sick with some stomach bug but we still managed to do cow-milking in the afte...

We stayed at Buena Vista for two nights. Our room had a beautiful view of the lake, was very spacious and clean. Food was great, it was fresh and authentic. All the staff members were super friendly and accommodating. We also did the combo tour which included horse back riding, thermal springs, water slide, zip lining, hanging bridges, and lunch. The tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The views from the bar are exquisite! Highly recommended for a short adventure packed getaway.
