We found that Pico Bonito was absolutely beautiful with amazing staff and great food.
The lodge is nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff were always pleasant to deal with and accommodating. The food is a bit pricey (with tax it is approximately $17 for lunch and $32 for dinner) but it was very good and there is a lot. If you are not a big eater they do allow you to split the meal which is what we did as we found the portions were too big for us.
The rooms were quite nice. Beautiful stone work, big comfy beds all set right in the wilderness. Our only complaint about the room was the lack of privacy as there was not a proper door on the bathroom and you could hear the people in the room next door.
We did "The Loop" hike (which was included in our price) and it was good though we were disappointed by the lack of wildlife. In the lobby there is a list of the animals spotted that week but unfortunately all we saw on our walk was birds. At the end of our hike we stopped at a beautiful fresh water swimming area. Later in the afternoon we went to the serpentary and butterfly conservatory--both were interesting.
The lodge also has a pool area which was nice--wooden loungers and cushions--also very quiet there. There were only about 1-3 sets of people there at any given time.
Overall we enjoyed this lodge though realistically for us 2 nights was enough as it is too quiet for our taste and although the scenery is beautiful I think it would be more appreciated by either people who absolutely love nature or people who never get to experience nature (i.e. if you live in the city I am sure you would appreciate the quiet more).
