My family and I spent one night at the Lodge and wish we could have stayed longer. Our trip was cut short due to Hurricane Otto. Not knowing if the hurricane was going to hit the San Jose area, we decided to move our flight up a day. The lady at reception was very helpful in helping us reach the...

Stayed here for just one night and knew as soon as we walked in it would not be enough. Gorgeous, stylish, gigantic rooms. Lovely library with hot tea and cookies in the afternoon. Lovely grounds to wander. The Bird feeder was busy non stop with beautiful colorful birds. and my favorite part - when you retire for the night, there...

My husband have been traveling in Costa Rica and this place was a highlight of our trip. The Lodge is part of a working dairy farm high in the mountain by the Poas Volcano. The weather is colder up here, but a nice change. We met honeymooners and families coming for the weekend from San Jose. There are rooms in...

Well worth the visit. Traveled down a dirt road with dairy cows in front of us as we waited patiently for them to go into the pasture. Arrived at this fabulous lodge and was very impressed with room #6. The wow factor! Went out for dinner and when arrived back to room the bed was turned down and there was...

I will go out of my way to stay here, literally. I have stayed here twice now with my husband and it is just a beautiful hotel. The architecture in the main lodge and the cabins are incredible considering the originally construction was destroyed in the earthquake. The views are just amazing and it always is so cozy with the...

I rarely give 2 stars on hotels that present gorgeous pictures and have great architecture. But reviews should be truthful. Hotel building architecture is nice and unique. Rooms were designed years ago and they are cute. Everything is "antique". Overall hotel ambiance is good, landscape is beautiful therefore I gave it 2 stars. But don't be surprised if you walk-in...

Was very impressed by this boutique lodge. They have their own farm to supply food etc, make their own cheeses etc. We stayed in the most beautiful room, so much natural sunlight and a huge bathroom. Views of Poas Volcano form the property were great. Restaurant on site had good, fresh food, and had a large selection of beverages. A...

We really enjoyed Poas Volcano Lodge. We only stayed here one night (the day we arrived in San Jose). It's only about 50 minutes from the airport, but a world away from the bustle of San Jose. The landscape is beautiful, lush and green. We walked on the property's trails in the evening and then played pool in the gamer...

We had a really bad experience with immigration and Alamo rental i was starting to regret the trip until we got to the lodge. They were extremely nice and accommodating their location, the cabin and costumer service is superb would go back no doubt and will recommend to anybody. Andrea and Javier were awesome and the owner very pleasant 😎

The only reason I gave this lodge a 4 out of 5 is because there is not a lot to do there and I feel they have so much acreage that a hot tub, sauna, or hot springs area would be a great touch. Other than that, this place by far is the most unique place you will find in...
