Oké as shown below it is not trendy or boutique (why does TripAdvisor ask?). Instead it better... It is a stunning location on a isolated spot in the middle of nature. The setup and apartments are beautiful. Scenery amazing... It's not about big animals but beautiful nature, it's diversity and everything that lives in it. The staff here is very...

It was one of the most beautiful, remote and calm places during our trip through Costa Rica. We had a wonderful time and were sad that we weren't able to stay a night longer. The rooms are in fact small houses, each with a terrace of its own and a view over the lagoon. They are orientated in a way...

I spent two days at Maquenque as part of a wildlife trip to Costa Rica. Everywhere was beautiful and full of wildlife, but I think Maquenque shaded it as my favourite. Beautiful and extensive grounds, lovely staff, canoes available to paddle in the backwaters, a cayman in the lake, a coati in the grounds.... I went on two guided trips,...

We spent there 10 wonderful days and enjoyed every day of our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We felt as a member of their family.

Maquenque Eco-Lodge was our first stop in Costa Rica and was hard to beat. Even with the periodic rains (early Nov.) the bird viewing was wonderful at the lodge and on a tour around the property. We watched the king vulture dry his wings and got a picture of the great green macaw eating an almond. Our cabin was clean...

Maquenque Lodge is the best nature hotel I have been to! You are surrounded by a huge amount of birds, tropical plants and exotic flowers.
