We stayed for 4 days and it was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. Our 17 year old son thought it was tremendous - but he was looking forward to seeing the jungle and the wild life.
Reading several of the other reviews I will echo that the Lodge is the perfect place to see the jungle, whales, reefs etc. and be close to nature. It is very private, the experience is shared with a few handfuls of other guests. You are a 2 hour boat ride from anywhere and right at the entrance to the national park. Electricity is generated on site, so there is no air conditioning, no refridgerator, no TV in your room etc - just lights and ceiling fans. If this is the kind of experience you are looking for, the Lodge is a perfect choice.
The bungalows are spacious and comfortable. The staff pampers you. The food is excellent. The guides are knowledgable and enthusiastic. The grounds are breathtaking and the swimming pools pleasant after a day of hiking.
However if you are looking for a 5 star experience with the full amentities of civilization dropped into the middle of the jungle you may be disappointed - but then you wouldn't really be in the jungle anyway. Or it may convert you.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set above a palm-fringed beach in tropical gardens, and surrounded by 170 acres of pristine rainforest, Casa Corcovado is the ultimate combination of luxurious comfort and adventure - a place where you can spot big cats on jungle trails, have an entire beach to yourselves, snorkel with manta rays, and relax with a gin and tonic by the pool. The tranquil hilltop setting means awe-inspiring views and the best of the both ocean and rainforest breezes. The lovely bungalows are spaced throughout the lush garden for maximum peace and privacy. Casa Corcovado offers the closest accommodation to Corcovado National Park, the crown jewel of Costa Rica's extraordinary, world-renowned national park system. As the two protected areas lie side by side, guests are able to access the national park on foot via the hotel's private trails - just one of the many guided tours on offer. ... more less
