We had a fantastic stay at Phidjie Lodge, made all the better by the friendly and helpful owners who couldn't have done more to make our stay enjoyable - thanks Olivier and Isabelle!
The spotlessly clean cabins are set in very nice gardens and since there are only two cabins, you get the pool to yourself most of the time. The pool was very good, nice temperature, and shaded in parts.
We try to not hire cars on holidays, but you might want to consider hiring one if you stayed here. We stayed here for week and although we had a great time, it would have been easier with a car (as suggested by Olivier). There are plenty of good restaurants within a short drive of Phidjie Lodge, but not so close if you're walking (our favorites Morphotica and Mama e Papa were a couple of km away). The supermarket iis an easy walk down the road. The closest beach is roughly 2km away.
Olivier also helped us booked a whale watching trip with Bahia Aventuras (Uvita). We were lucky enough to see a whale very close up!
The cabins are also very nice, good kitchen, lounge/kitchen and small bedroom (bed not that comfortable).
For those keen on birds there are lots to be seen - Toucans (up to six at once!), Aracari, Caracara, hummingbirds, woodpeckers plus lot more can all seen from your lounger by the pool! The road behind the property is also quite a good place to spot birds.
