Lovely wooden lodge bungalows with nice bathrooms, lovely swimming pool, bar and two restaurants serving good food. The spa is a series of hot and cool pools by the river, with mud experiences and swimming in the river. There is also the offer of full spa massages which I thought were excellent. In addition they offer guided walks of half a day or full day in the National Park which were really informative on good paths. This included a packed lunch. Also offering rock climbing, tubing and raf... Read more

We did the combo adventure tour here which included 8 zip line, rappel with rock climb, horseback riding, white water raft, lunch, "hot springs and mud bath". Zip line - was okay. Nice views. Guides didn't even speak to us which was odd. There are 8 in total. Rappel and rock climb - very hard. One of us did it, one didn't try as they said 100 people unable to per week. You cannot rappel if you are not going to rock climb. 17 metres approx. Horseback riding - appeared that horses were not we... Read more

Went tubing for the 3rd time on the river next to the lodge. I keep doing it because it had been such a blast. But this time, they were 40 min. late taking us, forgot the 5 of us at the reception (we saw the truck go out with the tubes and another group, so alerted them), and none of the guides spoke much English, so we didn't get any safety instructions or overview of what to do when. I missed grabbing the rope to hang onto before the 10' waterfall because I was floating backwards and no one re... Read more

Good sized rooms, comfortable beds, good WiFi in our room (9) excellent showers with plenty hot water and nice selection of shampoo etc. If you want extras like zip wire, tubing (whatever that is), massage they are here for a price. Swimming pool looked OK. Food was a bit varied. Dinner and breakfast were buffet style for us as part of a group but we could have gone a la carte for dinnercsnd paid the difference.First nights dinner was OK I had a selection from soup, various salads , rice, beans ...

The place had good rooms to stay. The food was good. Still, there is something about this place that would not make me come back here again. We had room # 40 (from memory...might have been 41 as well) and the pool was not far away. Sitting on the small veranda the music from the pool was easily heard. The dinner is at a different place as what is said to be the restaurant. Not sure about the reason for this. After we did get back from the National Park we wanted to get a cup of coffee at the ...

The bungalow was nice, we had number 36 on an edge of the terrible road. Nice and quiet. Airco, WIFI! refrigerator and small coffeemaker, very nice. Two small double beds. Nice terrace. Nice swimmingpool. Diner on the first night was bad, we don't like to complain, but the tomatosoup was terrible salt and the rest was eatible. The next day diner was a buffet, because there came a bus of dutch people. Then the food was much better! What we did not like, was that we booked tubing on the thirth ay ... Read more

Upon our pm arrival, we wanted to leave. The room was not impressive and were frustrated we had pre-paid a rate of over $100. However, it was late and our options were few. We stayed and enjoyed our stay so much - we plan on returning on our next trip to Costa! Once we occupied the room, we found it to be one of the cleanest rooms of our stay in Costa. The floors were spotless - which pleased my 7 month old crawler! Don't get me wrong - the rooms are spartan and very plain. It's very much... Read more

Our lodge was clean, had airco, plenty of space. Unfortunately the rooms did smell mouldy if the airco was turned off. We also found some of glass plates missing in the windows which means you can turn the airco on but the hot air is flowing into the room anyway. Luckily we their are sufficient nets in front of the window so you won't get any insects in the room. The resort is quite big, which makes it less cosy. Especially when you have a larger facility it would be nice to be able to move arou... Read more

While the location is lush, green and beautiful, we had a negative experience on the tours they offer. We went for an all day adventure package, that we were unable to complete. We did zipling and lunch. On the next activity, horseback riding, our daughter was bucked off a horse and sprained her wrist. While accidents happen, this could have been easily avoided had the guide not been so inept. He never spoke a word to anyone. Never even showed any concern for my 11 year old daughter. Instead, he...

Quite isolated location so unless have transport or take a taxi to Liberia not able to go elsewhere at night. Rooms ok but due to gap in wooden chalet type ceiling directly over the bed, spent a lot of the night removing large ants from bed covers! Only fine mesh on windows and quite a few insects get through. I don't mind but some folk might! The bar and pool area is very nice, tropical plants and trees surround it and lovely spa pools at the bottom by river. I sat and watched beautiful butterf... Read more
