Aunty is an amazing lady. I was so glad to be hosted by her, this is more than just a hotel, it made me feel like I have a second home here in Costa Rico. This was my first solo trip, I was a bit nervous when I first got to the lodge, it was not in downtown but more of an isolated place surrounded by all kinds of trees and plants. You woke up by birds or chicken, enjoy delicious and wide variety of breakfast served by Aunty. All the staff here were extremely nice and friendly, they keep you safe, make you feel like at home. I can't say enough more good things about this place. Strongly recommend :)

Great location with friendly staff. Close to most attractions. It’s secluded and quiet. The beds are okay the shower has very low water pressure. You need to take your own shampoo stuff as they only have a few bar of soaps. Only coffee was provided in the morning so also get your own sugar and cream.

Aunty and Fernando were so lovely and careful with us that we felt very comfortable. Take an opportunity to spend some time with such amazing people and you’ll feel their humanity.
