I am so glad we had the opportunity to stay at the Peace Lodge. I am so impressed with the owner’s vision and management philosophy. I would love to meet them because they must be extraordinary people. This hotel is the best and most unique I have ever experienced. The service and attention to details were incredible.
The rooms are beautiful. They are rustic and reminiscent of a log cabin, yet warm, cozy and upscale. Each piece of the wood furniture throughout the hotel is a work of art. The iron hardware, stone masonry, and landscaping is gorgeous. We got a kick out of the wood sign in front of our doorway that had our name spelled out in wood block letters. When we entered the room we were greeted by a warm fire in the fireplace and soothing classical music playing on the CD player(they have several CDs in the room with various mixes.) The bathrooms were magnificent with gorgeous, intricate metal ceiling chandelier, waterfall showers made entirely of river rock. The shower had great water pressure and very hot water which we appreciated when it was cold and rainy outside.
The food was some of the best we had during our stay in Costa Rica (although, all of the Tican food was surprisingly good). We took advantage of the $35 four course price fix menu, which was great. My son was so appreciative of the staff that helped him fish for trout in the trout pond. He caught four in 45 minutes and the chef cooked one up for him that night at dinner. The park staff spent a lot of time with him allowing him to feed the hummingbirds by hand and hold the boa constrictor around his neck.
We thoroughly enjoyed the walk/hike along the waterfalls. Breathtakingly beautiful and a great workout(not for the unfit). I would highly recommend this hotel as a first or last stop when visiting Costa Rica.
