Excellent Adventure

Posted Mar 23, 2015
This hotel was amazing. We were the only guests because it was the rainy season and we were treated like royalty. The hospitality was incredible and the food was delicious. We took their kayak tour and saw about 15 Capuchin Monkeys. We hope to go back soon!

Mangrove Kayaking

Posted Feb 3, 2015
Pros: breakfast, monkeys, boa constrictor
Cons: dining room is a bit dated
Location: 15 minutes to Quepos and grocery store 3 minutes away
The gracious owners Bernard and Marlene were very kind and helpful. We took a kayak trip thru the mangroves with Bernard and he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic in explaining the birds, trees, monkeys and aquatic life. We saw white faced monkeys while kayaking! The breakfasts were very good and internet speed good also. While the dinner was tasty and also quite reasonably priced, the ambience is lacking and we ate by ourselves. The pool was clean and refreshing and we liked that we could use the fridge to store cold drinks . Our room was clean and comfortable.

Bernard, Marlene and all the rest made the our stay there. They are extremely helpful and amazing people! Lodge is right by the mangroves, where you can do kayaking and they also organize all possible excursions one can do there. Food was also very good and of good quality.

Excellent off the beaten track accommodation

Posted Jan 16, 2015
Pros: The rooms.
Location: Quepos, Manuel Antonio National Park, Hacienda Baru Wildlife Refuge.
The hotel is in the village of Damas a few miles away from Quepos. The rooms are very comfortable, well equipped and maintained with good air conditioning and bathroom amenities. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. There's a nice pool and the breakfast was very good. There is ample parking.

Quiet and authentic experience.

We arrived by car late evening and too tired to drive into town. The owner and his wife graciously provided dinner. Felt like we stayed with family. Perfect if youre looking for clean room, quiet stay and friendly staff

Very cool place. 20 min of driving from Manuel-Antonio, this place is very quite unlike the city. No noise, no bars around. The owner is a very nice guy. he know the area very well and can tell you what are cool things to do. His wife took our flat tire to a city and got patched in an hour after we asked her.

Kayak Lodge is a friendly and welcoming place

Posted Jan 2, 2015 on Hotels
Bernard and his wife are absolutely wonderful guests. The room was spacious and quite clean. It was very hot in Damas and the air conditioner is set to go off each time you open the door. Although we understand the need for this, it must be difficult on the a/c system and makes for a very hot room.The lighting is also difficult because of the types of white bulbs that are used. All in all, the price was decent and we would definitely return.

Noisy place

Posted Jan 1, 2015 on Hotels
This could have been a good place but it is outstandingly noisy and we did not feel relaxed and wellcome any minutes. No privacy, loud music in the evening and annoing owners. One the positive side, they have an extremely good breakfast

Lovely spot well situated to explore the area.

We were warmly welcomed by Bernard and Marlene who made our stay special. They made us feel at home and gave good guidance about local places of interest plus beaches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
