“Spectacular experience”
Reviewed 23 January 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for two nights as part of our Caravan tour and it was a wonderful experience. The staff were so happy and helpful. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and showed you all kinds of wildlife. The rooms were very clean and fresh. The Howler monkeys were your early morning wake up call as there is no glass in the windows and therefore you hear them quite well. So much wildlife to see from monkeys, sloths, caimans, crocodiles, Toucan birds and many many more. The staff working there will point them out for you to see. I would definitely recommend this place ad part of yourCosta Rican experience.

Wow...we stated at Anhinga Lodge as part of a Caravan Tour. This place is truly a piece of heaven!

You must travel by boat for approximately 1hour 45 minutes. The wildlife is very impressive. Sloths, caimans, crocs, toucans, monkies, butterflies, birds, etc. The lodge is very comfortable The cabins have tin roofs which are a bit noisy at night when it rains. No windows. Only screens. There is a ceiling fan so it's a bit warm. It's really quaint. I loved the stilted cabins and the little front porches complete with two beautiful rocking chairs.

The staff were fabulous. Very clean and always helpful. We went on a hike through the jungle and were having difficulty locating the start of the trail. A very nice employee, who worked on the grounds, guided us through the entire trail!

Loved the solitude. So peaceful.

We spend 2 nights here as part of a Caravan Tour. This property is only accessible by boat or plane and is in the jungle. We arrived by boat after an amazing ride down the rivers and canals. We saw so much wildlife - sloths, monkeys, caimans, lots of birds and a nest of baby turtles rushing to the Atlantic. The property is absolutely gorgeous with well kept gardens, paths, etc. The rooms are basic (no A/C, TV, phone) but clean and comfortable. The restaurant is right by the river and the food is excellent as was the service. Pool is great too. If you are looking for a 5 star place this is not for you but if you want to see lots of wildlife and enjoy the jungle you will love it.

We just got back last week... Beautiful place ...we had no rain - lots of sun! We saw monkeys, cameens, lots of birds, frogs and turtles in the river. We saw one green turtle that came up to nest but she changed her mind! :(
The food was awesome! Loved the pool. Saw a dolphin in the river too! Read and napped in the hammock! Great experience!
Thank so much!

Room Tip: Ask for the room by the pool!

Top notch operation that serves your every demand each day. Gardeners, Waiters, Bartenders, Cleaning Staff, Cooks, Hosts, Managers.... Tons of staff to cater to your preferences. I have never had so many choices for breakfast in the morning.... They prepared our fish that we caught to eat each evening over and above the wonderful meal provided already. A definite 5 star resort in the jungle.

Our family (grandparents, parents and two children, ages 11 and 8) spend three wonderful days at the Lodge. From the moment we were greeted by the staff on the dock as our boat approached the lodge to two of the staff standing on the runway holding umbrellas over us as we boarded a plane for Arenal, all of our wants and needs were met with a smile. The lodge itself is clean and the rooms were as good as could be expected of a jungle lodge reached only by boat or plane. They were clean, spacious and comfortable. The food, served family style in copious amounts, was delicious, mostly local cuisine. While we had a guide, the staff who accompanied us in boats was very knowledgeable about the incredible wildlife and extremely helpful in finding birds, caimans, monkeys, lizards etc. above, below and in the river and canals near the Lodge. We cannot praise the lodge more highly although having read other reviews, my suggestion is to remember that you're literally in the middle of a jungle and should adjust your expectations accordingly; i.e., no air conditioning and jungle noises (mostly howler monkeys) at night.

Our family of 6 stayed here and had a great time! Staff was helpful, kind, friendly. Great guides and wait staff. Tons of food served family style! Great setting. No AC, but didn't need it. Seeing the turtles was a highlight of our trip to CR!
