    4/5 Good

    Definitely a place to go and relax, with no TV, and wifi pretty poor. But not the place to come if that's what you want to do. Enjoyed feeling part of "the jungle."

    5/5 Excellent

    Staff is super friendly and always helpful! I really loved how the property is surrounded with nature and so peaceful.

    Good Place in Puerto Viejo

    Really nice place, good location, awesome nice staff

    Stayed 1 night in Apr 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    Excellent location for wildlife- sloths, howler and capuchin monkeys, iguanas, and many types of birds but to name a few were seen right outside our bungalow. Still, it was only a short walk to the beach and an assortment of other restaurants.

    5/5 Excellent

    Marvellous lodge nestled in beautiful tropical gardens. The lodge and rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Our hosts were on hand to answer any questions and they served a wonderful breakfast too!
