Lots of flies in the outdoor dining area including lots around the drinks area, makes eating very off putting. Flies were in the sugar at breakfast and remained at lunch with no attempt to clean the area. The bedrooms are very dated and in big need of a revamp. It's a shame there is not more care taken with this hotel as it is a lovely area right by the water front in Tortuguero. Has lots of potential. Food was nice. Kayaking to the small canals was nice experience with lots of wildlife to see.

We booked for this hotel because they said the transfer from la pavona to the hotel was included, but we arrived there and, after phoning the hotel, they said there are taxis for the transfer, so we had to pay extra for the taxi. In addition to this, the dinner was average. The rooms didn't have windows to be closed and we stayed two days raining cats and dogs! The beds are not very comfortable and all the hotel is old

The most perfect spot. Right in the middle of nature. Next to a water stream to easily travel around Tortuguero. You literally sleep in between the trees and animals, it's absolutely lovely. Also enjoyed an awesome breakfast outside. Oasis of pure calmness. Favorite sleeping spot in Costa Rica!

Getting to this hotel is an experience on its own; this is a must see for Costa Rica. The adventure starts with a 45 minute boat ride through one of the wildest parks in the country. At times I felt I was riding through the Amazon. We arrived at the hotel just in time for lunch. the restaurant was serving buffet style with a great variety of choices, from the local Gallo Pinto to very elaborated dishes. There is five of us in our family and everyone had something different on their plates. The r... Read more

The rooms are nice and roomy, however, my bedding was dirty and I needed it changed. The bathrooms are massive in size. Make sure you draw your curtains as the windows have no glass, only a mosquito wired net, so you will hear everything outside and vice versa. There is a small pool but this does not get cleaned regularly, it was murky green for two days which i refused to swim in. The food is okay, they should go easy on the salt. Friends of mine stayed at the same time, and a mobile phone went... Read more

We stayed here for 2 nights after spending time deep in the rainforest in a jungle lodge. We were hoping for aircon and wifi after our seclusion but we were disappointed. The rooms looked very tired with grubby bathrooms with broken tiles etc. The ceiling fans were noisy and failed to cool the hot, humid rooms. The swimming pool was cool and inviting but also suffered from broken tiles - my son cut his foot. Having said all this the food was excellent and plentiful - buffet style and limitless... Read more

Located a 2 minute water taxi from the main town. The water taxi costs about USD 2 per person each way. The rooms are in individual veranda fronted rows/ blocks. Ours was slap bang next to 2 that were being renovated, with the workmen starting at 07:30. Our room was clean enough, but I heard others complaining about theirs. Plenty of hot water for the shower. No air con, but the ceiling fan did a reasonable job, and the fly screens were all in good condition. The room was gloomy. Zero sound i... Read more

Lovely little lodge, not fancy but with everything you need. Excellent location out of the bustle of Tortuguero but right on the lagoon for esy access to boat rides and kayaks. Nice pool and gardens (sloths in the garden!!!) Food all inclusive but very nice and plentiful

The manager Jose when we arrived was really helpful. he arranged a boat trip for the following morning no problem. He Also said we could use a couple of the lodges kayaks for free. The next day another manager was on duty his English was poor and he looked at me as if I was insane when I asked about a boat trip for the following morning. He claimed it wasn't possible and we,d have to go to the village and arrange for ourself. Then we bumped into our previous boat trip guide who said he'd be happ... Read more

I thought for the price, this place was perfect. They picked us up at the airport as arranged and provided breakfast once we arrived. They were very good about setting us up for boat tour of the park. The pool was good as well as the food. The rooms are basic with no A/C but it is remote Costa Rica so for a few nights so worked out just fine.
