We spent 3 nights at Alby Lodge and it was amazing! The lodge is located at 2 mins by walk from the entree of Cahuita National park and from the village. Perfect location.

Our cabin was the number 4, we were surrounded by a beautiful garden and forest with howler monkeys! Be prepared to be woke up during the night by the monkeys! ;-)

The cabin had everything we need and very clean. A queen bed with mosquito net, fan, hammock and table on the porch. The bathroom was clean and had a shower. Please note that sometimes we didn't have hot water or a lot of water pressure. It didn't bother us, but I just wanted to mention it.

Moreover, there is a rancho (main cabin) with kitchen and tables. You can stock your stuff in the fridge, make coffee in the morning, cook some meals, etc. We really liked the rancho and used it everyday.

We asked Yvonne to stay one more night but unfortunately no cabin was available, we would like to stay more time. I totally recommend this place, it s a little paradise in Cahuita!

Thank you Yvonne! :-)

We arrived in Cahuita after booking a nearby hotel and went for a walk and came across Alby Lodge. We immediately fell in love with the place and booked in initially for only a couple of nights as we planned to move on. We ended up staying 11 nights it was amazing. All kinds of wildlife in the gardens including Agouti, Sloth and Howler Monkeys. The Hostess was just fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for her.

If you are family who wants to reconnect with your teenage children the weak wifi is a massive bonus Beautiful gardens, oodles of animals, lovely fresh organic fruit from the garden, helpful conversation on everything with Yvonne (from how to fix a fridge to advice on the best trips and how to get there). Somewhere you should go to forget about your everyday stresses and truly relax. We planned 4 nights and ended up staying a week. Lots to do, good restaurants in town or cook yourself a meal onsite in a very clean and organised kitchen. Definitely would visit again. Thanks Yvonne

We arrived at this place 2 1/2 hours later than when we said we would after the bus from San Jose was delayed (which made a 4hr trip a more gruelling 6 1/2 hours).

The accommodation is well located, only 5 mins from the bus terminal (although we took a long circular trip round upon arriving). Turn/keep right coming out of the bus station!

The accommodation is individual log cabins /bungalows. We had one with two double beds, which was fine for two people but might have been a bit of a squeeze if there were 4. At first I thought the accommodation was pretty basic, but having relaxed the next day I realised it's all you need. At night you can hear a whole cacophony of wildlife, which is pretty cool & makes you feel like you're sleeping outdoors!

In addition to the cabins themselves there's a dining area with cooking equipment, fridge and honesty bar.

There is wifi in the dining area, but it was pretty much unusable when we visited which was a shame as it's extremely helpful when planning what to do!

The national park is only a 5 min walk away, complete with wonderful beach.

Its a beautiful little spot near the park and the town, but enough outside of main street to be quiet (except for the monkeys). Monkeys all around and great hammocks. Nice little kitchen area with beers.
