We stayed in an eco-lovers tent for five nights in Jan 2016. The tent was fine, but a bit basic for the price - a double bed would have been nice and the view of the sea is impeded by the roof of the yoga suite. It is up a very steep hill, which can be a little tiring in... More

I don't even know where to begin. We have been back from Costa Rica a couple of weeks now and I still can't stop thinking about my experience at Luna Lodge.

Luna Lodge--the location, the facility and the staff--offers myriad opportunities for a wide variety of experiences that compare favorably to the best of their kind to be had anywhere in the world. The location is remote and secluded, giving the visitor an occasion to recenter and reimmerse in as nearly pristine a natural setting as a true luxury ecolodge can... More

Everything about Luna Lodge is perfect. The food is great, staff attentive, the rooms are clean and have fabulous views. However, the magic of Luna is not something you can quantify - it is something you feel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Secluded in the tropical rain forest bordering Corcovado National Park, Luna Lodge is a unique resort described by many as "...a piece of true paradise". Its appeal is, not only, its natural beauty and environment, where the heliconia hang three feet long, and the howler monkeys wake you in the morning, but also, its ambiance. The owners' passion for the preservation of the forest is ever present, and the attentive courtesy, friendly staff always serve "con mucho gusto... with pleasure". ... more   less
