This hotel is in the jungle and claims to be environmentally friendly. They have regular parties with such loud music it disturbs people for many kilometers. Scares the monkeys and other wildlife away too. Terrible.

It is between 3.5-4 hours from San Jose to the lodge. All of the bungalows are in great condition. Whatever you read was not recent. The staff and lodge are both amazing. Hope this helps.

Its a drive, I believe it was about 3 hours. But its a beautiful drive along the coast. Lots of beautiful places to stop at. I don't know anything about bungalow 9. But our room was great.

"Excellent views of the ocean and the rain forest. Only a few kilometers from the beach."
"All the bungalows are separate, and feel very private."
"We stayed in the third floor suite and the views were amazing!"
"Try to get the rooms the closer to the reception or just next to the pool! they have the better views!"
"We chose a double bungalow that gave us room for two parents and their teen-aged children. Great views of the ocean."
