El Sabanero Eco-Lodge

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A perfect place to chill, a hilltop tropical setting with sparse guest population, pleasant staff and home cooked Costa Rican dishes. Lovely

Great owner and good staff. Cleanliness of room could have been improved. Bugs, ants and cobwebs were common. Breakfast showed little imagination. Day to day the same and we were there 8 days. Setting is very nice, but, wow, difficult to find and nealy impossible at night. A good sign on the hill, if you know it's there, but no signage leading up to the location.

El Sabanero is for those seeking refuge from the masses and hype of the 21st century. The individual cabana styled rooms are simple, and are graced by porches overlooking the valley. The grounds,pool and open air dining are naturally lovely. The staff works hard to accommodate the needs of all visitors,truly wanting you to experience,Pura Vida.

Southwestern feel, very peaceful and quiet in the hills. Rocking chairs on the porch! Pretty scenery! Good food. Helpful manager. Close to nice beaches.

Road signs were lacking to find the hotel.better choices were all over the place so the price was to high.[...] was friendly, helpful but still needs a restaurant and able to speak spanish.

between Santa Cruz and Tamarindo Canafistula Guanacaste
