It was like our own little world. Nice room and bathroom but it was the private patio and yard that made it like it's own little world. Very nice breakfast. Only negative was no wash clothes. Very safe and quiet. Great first night in country.

Average at best. We had the cabin farthest from the main house. There were several things not up to par. The first being the room was very dusty/dirty. There were cobwebs all over the ceiling fan and bugs in the light fixture. I know it's Costa Rica and bugs are expected (and work fast to make cobwebs) but when we...

This small eco compound enroute to the Doka Coffee estate and outside of downtown Alajuela is a beautiful haven. Back to nature! You will have to be on your own for dinner and there is no TV. Breakfast is wonderful and your hosts Nadine and Juliette are wonderful.

Really lovely place - feels like staying in a botanic gardens. The only place in Costa Rica we stayed in that had a coffee maker with proper coffee in the bedroom ! The first time you arrive, you need to give them a call when you're at the entrance gate, so they can let you in. After that, you get...

Only 4 casitas - on this beautiful lodge. It seems like no one ever says anything bad about anything around here.... We read great reviews about Buena Vista which was more expensive and great review about this lodge. We stopped at Buena Vista first and it was just OK. Sort of older building, the rooms had carpets and smelled musty,...

We spent our last night here only 20 minutes from the airport. The grounds are gorgeous. The room / bungalow is simple, but the mattress and sheets were very good and the room was clean. Nadine is a lovely host and speaks Spanish with a French accent. I recommend very highly!

We were greeted by the lovely Nadine at the entrance of the ecolodge after a very long flight. We felt welcomed from the moment we stepped through the gate into incredibly well maintained hotel grounds. We cannot recommend this place enough! The atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing, very close to the airport but away from the hassle of the city....

After a long journey from the UK we arrived at the gates to this beautiful place and were welcomed by Nadine. A fantastic oasis of calm awaited. Beautiful rooms set in lush vegetation, delicious breakfasts and loads of helpful advice from Nadine. A great base to see so much

It is true that the lodge is located a bit "in the middle of nowhere" and if you do not have your own car, it may be not the best choice; however, if you do have a car, then the hotel is just perfect. Beautiful garden, amazing breakfast terrace, great hostess, very spacious and nicely decorated casitas with a patio...

We took the 'Hello/Goodbye' package staying 2 nights at the start of our trip and one night at the end. So glad we did, this is a lovely place situated in a quiet location yet not far from the airport and only a short drive from Alajuela town. We made use of the restaurant at the Hotel Xandari (about 15...
