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.

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.

Charming Lodge with Amazing Views

Posted Feb 3, 2015 on Hotels.com
My husband and I stayed at the Poas Lodge in January 2015. It was the perfect location for being close to the Poas Volcano as well as the beautiful La Paz Waterfall Gardens and coffee plantations. The lodge is quaint with I believe 5 rooms so it has a nice cozy feel to it. The owners who run the lodge are 2 brothers also from Texas who are very nice, welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. They had a lot of great recommendations on places to visit in the area and even out by the coast-- which is where we spent the remainder of our trip to Costa Rica. The lodge is up on a hill with the most gorgeous view of the cities and towns below. There are hummingbirds that fly up to the windows to drink out of the feeders and cows in the neighboring pastures. They even have a restaurant with excellent food. I would definitely recommend staying at this lodge and I look forward to returning again on my next trip to Costa Rica!

Lovely stay

Posted Dec 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had a great stay at the Poas Lodge! It was a great little hotel. We were greeted happily when we arrived and allowed to settle in. The service was great and they were quick to help make our stay a bit better. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The view of San Jose and surrounding area from the hotels location was spectacular and we caught a great colourful sunset.

Impeccable View and Hospitable Hosts!

Posted Nov 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
The views at Poas Lodge are amazing. In the evening we could see the lights from Alejuela and San Jose, and during the day views stretching to the Pacific Coast. Stephan and Jimmie are GREAT hosts! Stephan cooked a full breakfast each morning and in the evening served dinner with locally grown produce and meats. Jimmie started the fire in the fireplace since it gets cool in the evenings. They made us feel like family. Poas Volcano was just up the road, so we spent the morning visiting the volcano and the afternoon walking thru LaPaz Waterfalls. We would stay at Poas Lodge again, and next time we'll email in advance to see what kind of care package Jimmie and Stephan might want...these Texas brothers like deer jerky.
