Fabulous relaxed and beautiful cabinas facing the privacy of a jungle paradise. Sitting on the very large decks and enjoying the sights and sounds and a glass of vino - well seriously could it be better - YES. The paths leading up to the open air restaurant to a fabulous meal that entices the senses before you even arrive. The on-site restaurant has a wonderful menu of varied options including vegitarian delights.
Then following a scrumptious dinner a walk up the paths further leads to the beautiful pool and terrace area. Over looking the ocean and jungle with sunsets and warm breezes is a great way to relax after a meal I think.
The pool and terrace area are immaculately kept and the warm pool water was always a welcoming option for a refreshing and relaxing dip after a tough day of site seeing and souvenier hunting.

This wonderful place sits a few hundred feet above and a half mile from the ocean. Most rooms have generous porches with ocean views. They have a large pool also overlooking the ocean. Great complimentary breakfast and we had several very good dinners there. Quiet and isolated so it's several mile drive to good beaches or activities. Great for a peaceful getaway.

"Nice hotel with excellent trails and great views"
We stayed there for two nights in an oceanview room.
Included breakfast was very good, also as we left one day very early they made us breakfast. Restaurant was ok, but as there are some really great restaurants within 10 minutes drive, you have options.
The trails that start from the lodge are just great, playa arco just turned out to be my favourite beach in Costa Rica. Also, the natural pool they have is a lot fun. Just some chairs around are missing.
I booked on Expedia with a discount, unfortunately for just one Person by some kind of mistake. On checkout (!) they wanted me to pay the difference, but would not include the expedia discount.
Unfortunately, the very nice receptionist was not able to decide anything, so he tried to call several people and it all got really confusing. Anyhow, in the end after like 30 minutes, everything got resolved to everybody's satisfaction. It is good advice to know what you booked and prepayed, so that there won't be any problems.
Would certainly recommend this lodge and will come again.
