We stayed here 3 nights and really enjoyed our time. There are only 10 units and each has a own pool. We had the best bed at this hotel compared to the other 4 hotels we stayed at (very comfortable memory foam type). It also had a great shower! We had a separate living area and bedroom with full wall length windows that opened up to the pool. So it was great to be able to lounge between as you wished. Around 6 pm they recommended shutting the doors because of mosquitos and the bats that like to catch them. We found it very entertaining to watch this show each evening right outside. I was really surprised that there were not many mosquitos at all though. We did put some repellent on at night when we went to dinner (as everything is outside) but I only got about 10 bites total over two weeks in Costa Rica. To compare I had 57 bites over a week in St John last year. The dinner and breakfasts were great! Each night they created a new menu from whatever they had bought for the day. They always had a fish and a meat option. It was fun as it made you try things you may not ordinarily order. There are a number of restaurants around but you have to take a cab. A fun recommendation is to rent an ATV and tour the coast and discover all kinds of beaches. The beaches were mostly deserted except for the surfing beaches and contained many tide pools. The roads are mostly dirt there so it can be dusty so don't wear white.

The hotel was very nice, the receptionist was a very good guy; the problem was in the restaurant the cook refuse to change the dish even when they accept it was something we didn't order. They waitress told us to come earlier; it was a disaster the staff in the restaurant... Although the breakfast was included we didn't come back ... The only good thing about the restaurant was the view

My experience staying here was phenomenal. Excellent service, the view was incredible and the location was perfect. The owner Marco went out of his way to help me with anything I needed. I traveled alone and I got my car in two ditches due to the rain and slippery mud. He came to my rescue both times. I felt like I was at 5 star hotel in the middle of the jungle. I could see and hear the animals from my room. I will return and I would highly recommend it. Especially if you are traveling alone. I felt Ike I was in paradise

I booked one night coming from Montezuma. Everything seems so far away according to maps and such online, but this lodge is only a 15 minute slow walk into Santa Teresa or a $2 taxi. I booked on Expedia after confirming my shuttle from Montezuma. I was greeted by name at reception and Luiz brought my bag up to my bungalow. I planned on one night only, but felt so at peace here that I booked a second night. Guests are surrounded by nature here: monkeys, birds, lizards, butterflies. The view from my bungalow was so perfect that I chose to watch the sun set from my balcony. The fans provided much needed air circulation, but my bungalow cooled down a bit in the middle of the night - perfect sleeping conditions. Guests get a few choices of plates for breakfast - the typical breakfast was perfect for me (rice/beans, eggs, tomatoes, cheese, fruit, toast, coffee, and juice.

We enjoed our stay but there were a few things that could be better. It was difficult to easily walk up and down the hill in the heat. All lights were turned off when we returned at night during our stay so if you wanted to walk, returning would be pitch dark. There was also no internet. It was workin fine in the lobby. Owners were friendly. I agree with other reviewers, the endless pool was nice when it was limited to hotel guests but come 2pm to sunsets, the public comes up to use it and it feels very uncomfortable to be surround by so many random people. I saw a few private 'tours' stop by for the view as well. No longer does it feel like a private oasis.
