A great way to experience white water rafting effortlessly. The first day we were picked up in San Jose on time by one of the guides, who provided local country information during the drive. We stopped at lunch at a restaurant in the countryside with a nice view. At the river another guide Evan provided perfect safety info without being too intimidating. Rafting the first day was very mild with a nice short hike up to a water falls and pond for swimming. We arrived at the lodge with a short description of the facility, hot outdoor shower, and walking guide by Evan to a beautiful falls. The bungalow was 5* but no electric which was perfect with candlelight and flashlights. River rapids, Howler monkeys and other sounds serenaded us to sleep and we awoke to the same. Rafting the second day was more exciting and rigorous but we were prepared by the first days experience. Absolutely beautiful river! Excellent lunch on the river.
Evan was an excellent guide with great rafting skills and our team was fun so we had a great time.
The price was higher than other hotels but well worth the experience because the service was excellent.
The Expedia price did not include transportation and rafting that cost the two of us an additional $280.

Beautiful hotel within walking distance to the beach! Staff was very attentive and made special provisions for us to have breakfast delivered to our room the night before because we had an early departure at 5:30am! We will stay here again on our next visit to Costa Rica!

Our family had visited Costa Rica before but never quite like this. After we contacted Costa Rica Expeditions (transportation was needed to the island) We were met at the airport with a sign displaying our name. From there, their was a 3.5 hour chartered bus ride through the city, the cloud rainforest and many villages to the dock. On the boat ride down, looking at the beautiful rainforest and river all around us we knew that this was going to be amazingly different. Everything was wonderful. It was both relaxing and adventurous. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. They met us with a refreshing all natural fruit welcoming drink. We had the 3 meal a day Full American plan for our 6 days there and this was EXCELLENT. The food was delicious with great portions served. Overall this was an excellent hotel.

My husband & I originally booked for 3 nights but ended up staying an extra 2 nights because we liked it so much! The owner & his wife were super nice & helpful & cooked us a delicious breakfast of fruits & toast & eggs & fresh Costa Rican coffee each morning. The staff was very friendly & the room was cleaned very well each day. I took an excellent yoga class right down the road from the lodge each morning at 8:30am. You can rent a bicycle right near the lodge for $5 per day & bike to Puerto Veijo & a few other small towns within 5 or 6 miles of the lodge in either direction. You can walk to the beach right from the lodge down a pathway. I highly recommend it! Very peaceful & plenty to see & do & a great place to just relax in the hammock.

The facility is impressive, especially the garden. If you like to see animals in the wild, here you can experience that moving from your room to the beach. The rooms have all the necessary comfort (clean, spacious, simply but nicely furnished, bathroom in good conditions) and are wonderfully deprived of the unnecessary ones (TV, WiFi, ac). The beach is gorgeous and not crowded and the town is at walking distance (20 minutes).
