Unbelievably gracious hosts, Dan and Holly made the trip to Sabalo Lodge unforgettable. Perfect place to visit for those people who love photography, since you are surrounded by beauty everywhere you look. From the mangroves, to the surplus of animal inhabitants, everything is picture worthy. The lodge itself is definitely a hidden gem, with a very natural organic feel. Rooms...

We had so much fun with the owners-Dan and Holly, two amazing people (and great cooks too)!! There is so much to do. We took a long jungle hike and saw so many amazing animals....

My husband and I visited Sabalo lodge in hopes of getting away from civilization for a while and seeing some great wildlife and we weren't disappointed. The lodge is beautiful and the monkeys, exotic birds, iguanas and other creatures can be seen without even leaving the grounds. The rooms are simple open-air cabins with no frills, but they were clean...

If you're looking for adventure, look no further--from the point of leaving your transport behind at "Las Vegas Restaurant" on the Sierpe and boarding the boat that takes you to Sabalo, you will be in for a treat. Having been to Costa Rica several times, I had never yet been "in the jungle" and my friend and I wanted this...

We loved Sabalo Lodge. Dan and Holly were incredibly hospitable (even went out of their way to make me a birthday cake), and their food was ASTOUNDING! The bungalows are adorable and incredibly clean. The property is isolated but breathtaking: we saw monkeys and all kinds of tropical birds just wandering around on it. A great place for a total...

We enjoyed every moment of our 6 night stay at Sabalo Lodge over New Years. This secluded lodge with its beautiful grounds were a perfect get-away. We took advantage of all the local activities - horseback riding, kayaking, bird watching, the charming town of Sabalo, and the beach. Dan, Holly and their gracious crew took wonderful care of us.

My husband and I choose Sabalo Lodge for our 25th anniversary. We are in our late 40's, with 3 college students. We desired a place that would be quiet, relaxing, intensely tropical, and low key, while at the same time, allowing us to experience the local culture and people. We were not disappointed! Sabalo Lodge is a perfect getaway if...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled at the heart of the Costa Rican jungle lies a secluded paradise called the Sabalo Lodge. It is home to monkeys, toucans, frogs and morpho butterflies living alongside human residents of a nearby village and travelers in search of a unique experience. Clustered in the mangroves, the Eco-Lodge sits next to the winding Sierpe River, which makes its way through the Osa Peninsula and joins the Pacific Ocean rimmed by a gleaming sandy beach. Like no other hotel of its kind, Sabalo Lodge has committed to providing a sustainable recreational experience, offering guests an outstanding array of activities which tread lightly on the local ecosystem. ... more   less
