Catarata Eco-Lodge is a set of apartment-style rooms set in a beautiful garden full of flowers, birds, and a lovely pool. It was to be the first stop of our itinerary, and we were attracted by the promise of a quiet location and pool, and the fact that it is Costa Rican owned and run, with an ecological ethos. The place exceeded our expectations: We loved it. Spacious clean rooms with great showers and a good view of the famous volcano; a lovely setting; and warm and friendly staff who made us feel special.
I was worried about the lack of air-con in the rooms, but we found that the ceiling fans do a perfectly good job.
The kids loved the pool and spent many happy hours in it. We walked into town and felt glad we could return to our hotel oasis.
The walk up to the Fortuna Waterfall was fun. The walk into town took us about half and hour the kids, but should be about 15 mins, and a the taxi back was cheap. When we wanted to go further afield we got a taxi to come and pick us up at the hotel.
I made use of free internet access. The food was simple but pleasant: A choice of breakfast including traditional Costa Rican (loads of fresh fruit), and a good selection of evening meals satisfying children and adults alike.
All in all a real jewel of a place, excellent value for money, and somewhere we'd all love to go back to.
