I really was disappointed. Stayed less than 16 hrs. The roads to get to this place are terrible. Hot water did not work. Ants on the bed. Bathroom was is bad condition. There is limited food choices and no stores for miles.

Great Hidden Gem

Posted Apr 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
Spent two nights here when visiting the Rincon de la Vieja national park. It was a great location for visiting the park, with both entrances being a short drive away. Hotel itself is hidden amongst great scenery and peaceful surroundings. Great for winding down on a hammock after a long hike. Staff is very nice and could arrange a tour if needed. Definitely would come back again.

Nice place to stay near rincon de la vieja

Posted Apr 23, 2014
Pros: The fact that it is near the parc.
Nice hotel, near the parc. The staff is friendly (try the pina colada made by the chef, it is delicious).

Hotel Location is good but service is very poor

The hotel location is quite remote and the very scenic. The hotel manager was not open about sharing information about local sites. Also the check in and check out was terrible!!

Really nice place

Posted Feb 15, 2014
We had a great stay at Rinconcito Lodge! The room was clean, breakfast was really good and the site is stunning! We saw rainbows every morning, and thee staff was polite and very friendly. If you are planning on staying more than a day, you might want to have a car of your own, since the site is very remote. Overall, a very decent place, at a very low price!

great little lodge

We loved our two nite stay. David the manager was very helpful and he does it all. We highly recommend this cute lodge and will be back. Rincon de La Vieja is very interesting and we loved the Hot Springs after our hike through the National Park.

Nice rooms. Decent staff. I would eat next door at Giovanni's. His fried chicken is dope and he's very welcoming.

Terrible Experience!

Posted Jan 19, 2014
We stayed 2 nights. The 1st night was fine, but in the morning we were told that we were being upgraded to a better room because they needed to paint the one we were in. We had to pack all of our things in a hurry since we were about to leave, and gave them to the desk. When we came back, we got to our new "upgraded" room, which was just slightly bigger, but it was infested with a colony of ants. I saw at least 50 ants in the upper corner of our shower, at least 100 in a ceiling corner of the bedroom, and at least 20 crawling on the corner of one of the bed frames. When we told the owner, apologizing for complaining but that there were just too many to feel comfortable, he gave us spray and told us to spray them and make sure we leave the door open for a while to air it out - he never came to see the problem himself, and left us to deal with the issue. We sprayed them all and sat on the porch for a while as it aired out - when we went back in there were hundreds of dead ants all over our room, and apparently were expected to sleep there that way since we were given no broom or anything to even sweep them out. When we asked for another room because there were just too many dead and half dead ants to handle, the manager seemed irritated and was reluctant to give us another room because all he had were nicer ones available, even though we said we would take anything at all. He never even came to see the ant problem and it completely ruined our night. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!

Terrible Tour Guide

Posted Jan 10, 2014
It's pretty much what you can expect for a eco-lodge. Staffs are generally very nice there. The only thing we are so disappointed is their tour guide. The lodge offers tour guides for nature walks. They gave us a English tour guide who cannot speak much English. He took us to the upper part of the park and rushed through the circular trail and all of the sceneries in less than two hours. He didn't explain anything except saying things like "this is the mud pod" when we get there, and he couldn't answer simple questions like "if there's any snake in this area". Basically he's no use since the map is easy to follow and we have to drive ourselves anyway. And we had to pay him for the day even though we only used him for about three hours if including the drive. So if you want to have a resourceful guide when touring park, try some other lodges. If you want to walk the park by your own, then it's a nice place to stay.

Great Budget Lodge

Posted Nov 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
Rinconcito is a great budget lodge, its not fancy, its rustic and that's what makes it great. Its private and not crowded, very relaxing and quite. Its in the perfect location to go exploring the volcano's. This is a great lodge if you are a nature lover, there is great bird watching on the lodge grounds and its in a perfect location to explore and hike the Volcano parks. The breakfast are nice and so are the dinners, its local fare and you have your choice of 4 options. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
