“Different and delightful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013 via mobile

Husband was not impressed with my booking "cramped and inconvenient" tent house for 3 nights. However he changed his mind totally after night one because of the closeness to nature and the excellent arrangements made for our day at Rincon. The park is very impressive and different. Ingrid and Gerard are very helpful and suggested a short local walk to their local swim spot. We saw incredible butterflies and G helped us to identify them. He also told us where to spot bats. His enthusiasm is infectious which was right up our street. The breakfast is a good start to the day too! Lovely spot!

Gerard and Ingrid are really nice people. I have stayed there twice now, once in a tent house and once in a room, and both experiences were very good. It's such a pretty, quiet and easy-going spot with nice gardens and plenty of hammocks, chairs and tables to lounge in. Gerard and Ingrid could not be more helpful with their local knowledge and kind hearts. They obviously love their life and what they do. Close by the park and hot springs, this is the nicest place to stay for miles and miles around!

We rented a room with this Dutch couple in december 2012. Rooms are basic and not to small, with a hot-water bathroom. Each room has a small porch, which is nice for the warm evenings.Everything is kept very clean. They offer a great large breakfast , and can make a lunchbox for 6$, which is convenient for hiking in rincon de la vieja. The owners are very friendly and informative, and really helped us in planning our visit of the park and some other nearby birdwatching walks. Overall a very nice place to stay at a very affordable rate!!

This place is run by a really nice Dutch couple, who were most helpful. They built and remodeled it themsleves, and they did a great job. nice walks nearby, and convenient to Rincon de la Vieja National park. Basic but filling breakast (fruit, eggs from their chickens, toast), and lots of very useful advice. Rooms are simple, but perfectly adequate. If you come around Christmas there is bull riding and a fair in town. Lots of nice landscaping, and plenty of birds.

Room Tip: There are only three rooms in the lodge, all are fine.
