We ended up moving from the bungalow near the parking lot - too busy with taxis in and out; employees etc but really enjoyed the bungalow towards the back of the property...very private and quite. Hotel and rooms were nice. We were disappointed in that they did not provide towels at the pool and only one each from the room for showering. Pool service at the pool was terrible. We had to get out most of the time to seek for help which negated being in the pool. The highlight of our stay was the deep tissue massage with Alejandra. My husband each had one and it truly was one of the best, therapeutic, deep massages that we have had. She had our experience there well worth it! The hotel does offer bikes but ensure getting up early to get them as some days they were all checked out but a nice ride, easy distance to the town of Puerto Viejo.

After a long drive from San Jose it was a bit disappointing to find our room not ready,so we had to sit around for a while.We had a family bungalow that had 2 rooms an outside kitchen area(only used the fridge)and large seating area with 2 hammocks.
Initial thoughts were that it was very dark and a bit basic.
However over the four days there I came to enjoy the outside space ,the aircon was very efficient and the grounds had visiting howler monkeys ,agouti and tourquoise poison dart frogs on the path to the room.The fridge kept our beer cool for evening lounging.
The pool was v pleasant although occasionally got a bit busy.The location was good ,close to some good local restaurants ,the beach and a short walk to town.
Breakfast (included)was fine,omelette and pancake station and buffet.
By the end of our stay We'd had a great time (several pre-booked trips to jungle and snorkelling),and I had warmed to our bungalow and would stay there again.

Depending on the room here determined my overall feel for the this accommodation. Our first three nights were spent in the ocean front suite which was very nice. We could see the ocean through the palms and there was a lot of busy activity out front on the street. But our last night they had to move us to a "Standard Room" which was terrible. No frig, almost no lighting, very depressing. Breakfast was excellent, top notch.

We booked 1 luxuary and 1 standard room. Luxuary room was good en brandnew, but de standard room was awfull. It didn’t smell good and there was mold everywhere : in the shower, at the ceeling, on the lamps.... Staff was very friendly when we complained about the room and the next day we got a free upgrade.
When we went to the pool, there we couldn’t get towels. We had to use those of the room, but there were no towels in our room. They promissed us to get some in 10 minutes, but that became 1,5 hour later. We had to use the same towel at the pool en to take a shower in our room. Chairs at the pool were dirty also.
Wifi was poor, even near the reception.
1 positive thing : staff at the reception is helpfull and friendly

Room Tip: Never take standard room!!

The lodge consists of small hats located in the jungle. They are equipped with aircon and fridges.

There is a small pool next to the main building where the restaurant and bar is located. The food is basic but very good. The beach is in walking distance.

The whole family loved the place. We were fascinated by the colorful frogs and other creature in the garden of the hotel.
