“Calm, Quiet and Tranquil”
Reviewed 2 February 2008

We were one of the first couples to stay at the newly refurbished lodge at Saladero in December. It was better than we expected. We had been to several lodges in Costa Rica in the past, but this place was special. The living quarters are very tropical with new furnishings and very clean. We were able to actually rent the beach house for the week and the owners provided us with a fully equipped kitchen to cook our own meals and use many of the fruits and spices grown on the property. We had farm fresh organic eggs daily and we were able to purchase fresh chickens and fish from the locals. Kayaks were available free of charge and we snorkeled almost every day. The owners went out of their way to make us feel at home. The only thing we disliked was that we were the only guests there and the only interaction we had during our week stay was with the owners and the workers.

  • Liked — Seclusion and privacy
  • Disliked — Inability to shop or walk to a town and mingle with others
  • Stayed December 2007

This place is like no other. We just got back from our trip and we can't stop daydreaming about our stay at Saladero. As soon as we got there we completely forget about the crazy busy world we came from and let the relaxing vibes completely inundate us.
You can't even begin to imagine what it's like to stay in an environment this alive. The animals, the gardens, tasty fresh fruits and clear blue ocean - there is so much to see, it was a welcome break from the dreary winter we left behind and then came back to......

The food was great - fresh and local in a relaxed atmosphere just steps from the beach. The ceviche is highly recommended.

The rooms are rustic - the place is a ecolodge so don't expect the Waldorf Astoria - but exactly what we wanted as environmetalists. The owners, Barbara and Harvey, and their staff of local "Ticos" and "Ticas" were as friendly as they come in Costa Rica. We've been to CR several times and each time we are so impressed by how nice the people are everywhere you go.
