Wonderful

Posted Feb 17, 2017
Pros: Educational tours, rainforest and talking with the staff about their lives and how many have been educated and promoted by the lodge.
Cons: Menu to be changed for longer stays, music, more local artist products for sale
Location: Corcovado national park, fly in worth the money!
Excellent stay. Beautiful room with a view of the Guelph and Pacific Ocean into the rainforest, room 9. There are 17 rooms in total, the last being 225 stairs away. Lots of wildlife walking to and from your room. The hikes are well guided. The beach is a short walk downhill 10 minutes away. A shuttle is available at certain times to return or a short workout up the hill to the lodge. The staff are exceptional, kind and willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay complete. The meals are delicious and presented artistically. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every moment. Wonderful memories!

Great resort, once in a lifetime holiday.Few snags

Posted Jun 28, 2015 on Hotels
We had a great stay at the resort. Steps may be an issue for some but we liked being at the bottom of the hill as the wildlife was great, we had more privacy. The bigger issue was the difficulty in communicating with the hotel when you needed something. With no phones in the room, and a big climb to get to reception, it is a bit of a problem. It could be easily fixed by giving guests a radio handset (commonly used by staff throughout the resort). On one evening when we returned to our room, the housekeeping staff hadn't closed the door properly. we returned to find the door wide open. In a normal hotel this is bad, but when your hotel is in the jungle with monkeys, shakers, armadillos, scorpions and ants all in abundance, it is a problem. They hotel was very apologetic, but this kind of thing shouldn't happen in a resort which costs $500 a night. The experience didn't detract away from our holiday though. I would heartily recommend the experience of staying at the resort to anybody. The activities were all brilliant. Wildlife in abundance. The policy of no wifi is welcome to allow guests to completely escape work etc. The food was good, too, though they could focus on giving less choice and rotating the menu a bit. Waiting staff and activity leaders were all great.

Terrific stay

We just spent 5 nights at Lapa Rios with our two kids ages 10 and 8. We all loved it. Great setting, great rainforest experience, terrific staff across the boards, and really good food.
