The Lookout at Playa Tortuga was exactly what my wife and I were looking for to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It is a beautiful, relaxing, and romantic setting with several spectacular and deserted (or nearly so) beaches nearby. We found numerous good to great restaurants to enjoy all within a 5-15 minute drive. Denise and Eduardo run the hotel and...

The view at sunset doesn't get any better anywhere. From the second story "lookout" there are breathtaking views of the Pacific, the beautiful pool area and colorful grounds. You can enjoy spectacular sunsets while toucans fly by. The sound of the surf will lull you to sleep at night. My wife and I still long for their fresh tropical fruit...

Can't beat the view for the price! We were fortunate enough to have the ocean view room for our honeymoon. The rooms were clean and comfortable, although there was no air-conditioning the ceiling fan was effective. Plenty of hot water for showers in a nice size bathroom. The pool is crystal clear with an oceanview. We only had 4 days...

We booked a 2 week holiday family trip with 5 nights being at the Lookout. This was definitely the highlight for us! The view and sunsets were phenomenal, but paled in comparison to how much we felt treated as royalty by our hosts Eduardo & Denise. Having older kids, we had adjoining bungalows so they had their space & we...

We spent 2 nights at the Lookout and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Lookout is positioned on a hill overlooking the ocean - great views and sunsets. The place is very solidly built, with a beautiful open air dining/bar/sitting area. The rooms were clean, quiet, spacious and well-updated. The pool was small but nice. We enjoyed 2 wonderful dinners -...

From the minute we checked in Denise and Eduardo made sure we were comfortable! Our rooms were overlooking the ocean and we could hear the ocean and Howler Monkeys at night!

The Lookout hotel has the best sunsets! There is a lookout tower where you can sit relax and watch the sun set. Beautiful horizon. The rooms are very clean, quaint and well maintained. (If you go in the summer time, it may be too warm since there is no air conditioning.) The daily breakfasts are wonderful - healthy and fresh....

We stayed at The Lookout for 3 nights in November on a birdwathcing and beach expedition for my wife's birthday.

We are building a house near Ojochal, and stayed at the Lookout for about 5 nights while we were meeting with designers, etc. The location is perfect - right on the highway near the entrance to the town and very close to several beautiful, quiet beaches. The drive up is typical Costa Rica - 4 wheel drive is recommended! We've...
