We've spent two nights at this hotel. Arriving by car is quit spectacular when crossing the first hanging bridge! Exciting experience. The hotel lobby was very dark, few lighting, can be more inviting then it is now. not a very warm welcome, no welcome drink, nobody bringing us to the rooms, a bit dissapointing. Spacious rooms but the have so much more potential. Fade colors, I would recommend to put some nice colours on the walls, use some colorful cushions and window curtains and the feeling w... Read more

We stayed for one night on our way from the Caribbean Coast to Tenorio National Park. The Hotel is in a very nice, isolated area next to some rivers with an adventurous ride over some rusty hanging bridges. In my opinion there is a lot of potential. However, there is a need of some serious renoviation and upgrades. The rooms were probably not painted and repaired for a while. Mosquito nets broken (especially next to a lake this would be useful), termites in the cupboard. Staff was friendly but r... Read more

Approached by a suspension bridge only, you walk over to number of small rooms immediately adjacent to the river or the water basin. Numerous bird sanctuaries are seen in the immediately surrounding grounds, that house an equestrian ring, a voodoo museum, as well as pool, the river, and a Jacuzzi. Overall, a very relaxing and quite environment. Food is made to order for you, including whatever you would like for dessert. Very spacious rooms, although without air conditioning or hair-dries. NO in... Read more

We went for a relaxing day at the river and ended up staying for a night and going tubing. Great place, good food, and beautiful views. There are many types of birds, so I recommend bringing binoculars for an amazing morning or afternoon natural treat. They have Rodeos on Saturdays, so will be going back to enjoy this incredible place.

Spent four nights at the lodge, mostly birdwatching in thr vicinity. The lodge folks were very helpful in setting us up with local expert guides, providing advice and information. The birding at the lodge itself was excellent, and La Selva is only 20 minutes down the road. The lodge has a lot to offer. River tubing was great fun, and the walk to the waterfall was intriguing. Much unexpected amenities when you finally get there. Rooms were very comfortable, food was excellent, service was great. ... Read more

This location is an old ranch converted in an upscale retreat. The property is beautiful, spacious and surrounded by nature. The common area is a large open space. The style is somewhat rustic, but extremely well taken care of. The rooms appear like small bungalow, several overlooking a lake with private patio. The furniture is minimalistic, but tasteful. wifi is available on in the common areas.There is a spa on site as well as a swimming pool and jacuzzi. The bar has a good wine and cocktail l...

This is a very comfortable, old-fashioned lodge. The accommodations are spacious and nice, reminiscent of the 1970â??s style. Youâ??re not going to get deluxe accommodations, but youâ??ll have a lot of options of things to do, from nature hikes to horseback riding to watching a Costa Rica style rodeo. And they have a small museum which, when I was there, had some lovely paintings by a Costa Rican artist; the exhibit wouldnâ??t have been out of place in a nice art gallery anywhere. The restauran...

We spent new year at Sueño Azul and it was great. They did a nice horse happening and a good dinner. The rooms are large and the beds are good, albeit short for tall Europeans like me. The breakfast they serve is excellent. The place is surrounded by beautiful vegetation and you are howled awake in the morning by the active howler monkeys. For me the best feature was the ginormous and beautiful airy yoga room, in a remote part of the resort with chirping wildlife around and filled with serene s... Read more

My friends and I fell in love with this location as soon as we saw our room! Overlooking a stream running past the back porch, the sounds of the birds and water, the large, well-lit room was extremely comfortable. The grounds of the hacienda have paths to a river for tubing, small beaches, and paths to the rainforest and waterfalls! There are enough activities to fill several days without having to leave the grounds. It's that gigantic of a property! This location truly has it all. In add... Read more

After searching for a place to do horse riding I found this place not far from San Jose where we live and fair prices Sueño azul exceeded my expectations. I came with my husband to celebrate his birthday we stay one night in the hotel and we loved it. The place is cozy and comfortable surrounded with a beautiful nature, the treatment of all the staff is excellent, we went on days where there were hardly any guests so it was ideal for us but we thought it a good place to go with family or friend...
