        This hotel is in the jungle and claims to be environmentally friendly. They have regular parties with such loud music it disturbs people for many kilometers. Scares the monkeys and other wildlife away too. Terrible.

        I truly enjoyed staying at this resort. The staff is fantastic. They were attentive and made sure we were taken care of the entire trip. The views are fantastic and being surrounded by the rain forest was magical.

        It is between 3.5-4 hours from San Jose to the lodge. All of the bungalows are in great condition. Whatever you read was not recent. The staff and lodge are both amazing. Hope this helps.

        Its a drive, I believe it was about 3 hours. But its a beautiful drive along the coast. Lots of beautiful places to stop at. I don't know anything about bungalow 9. But our room was great.
