Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our trip. We had been busy travelling for a couple of weeks and we wanted to end the holiday with complete relaxation. And that is exactly what we got. The cabins are stunning; small but bright airy rooms with hand painted stencils and art coloring the walls....

Stayed in April 2012 one night. Enjoyed the view of the ocean and being in a rainforest. The management were easy to work and the food was excellent and priced reasonable.

If you're travels bring you toward Osa on the south of the Pacific side of Costa Rica, I highly recommend staying at the Lookout near Ojochal. Mama Blanca, Uva, and their staff were endlessly helpful and accommodating during our 5 night stay. The optionally air-conditioned rooms were quiet, clean, and well placed on their spacious property, and the amenities were...

Brigit even helped us make phone calls to set up some of our excursions.The food was lovely and well presented. Rooms were simple,...

We loved our stay at the Lookout! The room was great,. comfortable and clean. Views breathtaking and beautiful sunsets. The breakfast that was included with the room was incredible and the dinner was gourmet, what a chef!! After touring Cosa Rica for 6 weeks and staying at many places we would definitely return to the Lookout and highly recommend it!...

We stopped on route to OSA Peninsula. After seeing a few disappointing hotels in the area were delighted to find the Lookout Hotel. Expansive views from the pool, restaurant/bar, and room. Plenty of wildlife. A new comfortable bed and a big shower. We were able to leave luggage here while we went to Corcovado and thoroughly enjoyed returning to this...

Great rooms, food, hosts, pool, massages, etc. This small hotel was perfect! Very relaxing with a great atmosphere and nearby restaurants and places to see if you want to leave the property. This part of the central Costa Rica coast offered so much to do and see. We saw more birds and animals at the hotel than other national parks!...

Stayed with my family for 3 nights.Good base for exploring this stretch of coast. Lovely colourful bright clean rooms, nice pool and superb outlook over the pacific. Very quiet and idyllic, especially in the evenings. Excellent breakfasts, restaurant meals and cocktails too. Friendly and helpful owners. This was the our favourite hotel in our two weeks in Costa Rica.
