A gem of a find!

Posted Mar 20, 2015
We were looking for a night to stay close to the Poas volcano and came across this place, it was literally 5 minutes away. Poas Lodge is small, but the atmosphere is excellent. The lodge is placed on the mountains and overlooks San Jose city and gives a great viewpoint. The host were excellent and very accommodating. The food was excellent and fresh as they source their ingredients locally. Would definitely stay there again.

Personnel chaleureux et vue magnifique

Posted Mar 8, 2015
Pros: Son emplacement près du volcan, l'accueil et la vue sur la vallée.
Cons: La salle de bain
Location: Situé à quelques minutes du Parc National du Volcan Poas.
Nous étions attendus et l'accueil des propriétaires fut chaleureux. Petit déjeuner inclus convenable. Le caractère vieillot de l'endroit fait partie de son charme et la vue des chambres est magnifique. Situé tout à côté du Parc National du Volcan Poas.

Glad we chose Poas Lodge

Posted Mar 2, 2015 
The Poas Lodge is well located for visiting the volcano with a nice view of the shimmering town lights below. Hosts Stephan & Jim were welcoming and provided excellent service, food and information. The fire was lovely in the chilly evening and early morning. Enjoyed our dinner and the breakfast was great. Would definitely recommend this lodge.

Don't risk it, avoid...

Posted Feb 18, 2015
Our flights been delayed for 6hrs, we arrive late. And even contacting the hotel and asking them to wait for us, what they agree to do, they didn't. We had to look for another hotel, because the check in closes at 20h and they will not wait another hour. If there is even a small chance of being late, just don't book with this hotel, they will not help you.

Lovely Mountain Retreat

Spectacular view, friendly service and good food. Very close the Poas gate. Bathroom was a little primitive.

Ambiance chaleureuse et vue superbe

Posted Feb 15, 2015 
Une vue panoramique sublime sur San José et ses environs depuis la chambre et la salle à manger. Ambiance chaleureuse dans la salle commune autour d'un feu de cheminée. Décoration soignée, chambre propre et lit confortable. Emplacement très proche de l'entrée du parc Poas. Idéal pour être au plus tôt dans le parc.
