We stayed here for 4 nights in February 2009 on the recommendation of some people whom I met in Costa Rica last year. This is wonderful place to stay. There are only 4 rooms which are immaculately maintained. It was great fun to sit on the long deck and watch the various birds and look at the dense tropical foliage. The owners are very nice and were always willing to help us make dinner reservations, arrange tours, etc. They also serve a very delicious breakfast. The lodge is a little off the beaten path but it was an easy walk to restaurants. We could walk to a beach or rent a bike from the owners to cycle to a more remote beach. We would stay here again and definitely recommend it!
