My husband and I recently stayed at the Peace Lodge for 2 nights of a 2 week trip to Costa Rica. We had done a lot of research and had high expectations for the Peace Lodge, but the hotel, grounds and staff surpassed these expectations.
While there, we took a fantastic guided tour with a great guy named Michael, ate delicious meals at the on-site restaurants, and enjoyed a wonderful couples massage. We also adventured on our own, attended the daily hummingbird feeding session and took all of our breakfasts in bed .
I've read reviews which describe the Peace Lodge as Disney-style Costa Rica and agree somewhat. It's ridiculously luxurious and most of the animals and birds you will see are confined, but that's why we went there. We needed a few nights of pampering and we enjoyed seeing birds and animals that we were unable to find in the wilderness. Our guide explained that the birds and monkeys they keep caged are animals rescued by the Costa Rican government who are too domesticated to survive in the wild.
I highly reccomend the Peace Lodge. It is a very romantic place for couples, and seemed like an interesting destination for a family trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located less than one hour from the San Jose (Juan Santamaria) Airport, the Peace Lodge is the perfect place to begin or end your vacation. You don't need to spend your first or last day in a city hotel. Please come spend them in the rain and cloud forest with us and still be close to the airport. We are also only 20 minutes from the Poas Volcano, another "must see" attraction in Costa Rica. ... more less
