“Osa trip made special by Las Islas Lodge”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

My first time to the Osa region which ended up to be the favorite part of my Costa Rica trip in large part due to our stay at Las Islas Lodge and the hospitality of Maria and Oscar. First the rooms are large, modern, with A/C, a small refrig and immaculately clean. Set among pretty garden landscaping the small pool was a welcome treat after a long day, hiking in the jungle. Customer service is supreme here. When I needed to make a non-emergent visit to the local health clinic, Oscar personally drove us there and stayed to assist with the interpreting. Likewise, the rest of the staff, were always checking in with us to ensure all our needs were being met. The location is a short 15 minute walk to town and/or the beach (or a $2.00 taxi fare) and is close to many restaurants. Las Islas is an exceptional value and I will be staying there again, when I return to Osa. Ask for Juan Carlos if you are interested in doing some guided bird/annimal spotting trips or want to have a very special experience hiking in the jungle to visit a real Costa Rican organic farm and have a special lunch.

Room Tip: We were in #2 and loved it as it was close to the pool, but very quiet. Nice chairs and benches out...

My wife and I started our honeymoon at teh Las Islas Lodge the end of July, 2011. We cannot say enough good things about Las Islas. Maria, the office manager is wonderful to work with. She helped us with our arrival and departure plans and was att he airport to pick us up upon our arrival. Whenever we needed anything, Maria was ready and willing to assist. The staff at the lodge were exceptional. Our room was always super clean and comfortable. The gardener was there in an instant to assist with our needs.....he even brought us candles on a super stormy night when power had been knocked out. Teh grounds were immaculate and the cabins dry and comfortable. Oscar, the owner was incredible. He went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. From our deep sea fishing adventure to having a chilled bottle of champage waiting in our room as a suprise, he was a great host. We can't wait for our next trip to Costa RIca. The Las Islas Lodge will be on our list for another stay when we make it back!

Room Tip: ASk to stay in back if possible for more privacy and further from the road

Have visited the Osa a few times & always stayed here. This lodge has a private feel that is immediately inviting. Very clean and close to both fishing & eco attractions. Oscar, the owner is a charismatic guy who greets you with the warmth of an old friend. He makes sure your visit is an enjoyable one with a personal touch. Amazing fishing captain with a great sense of humor & extremely knowledgeable about local life & wildlife.

Have never caught as many different kinds of monster fish in my life. Incredible fishing on a coastline that is breathtaking.

Las Islas Lodge is aesthetically pleasing with a location near the water and the airport. The rooms are clean, modern and well equipped. But what really impressed me was the service the Lodge provided in arranging all the details of our fishing trip, including adjusting to unforeseen last minute travel changes. These problems were handled calmly and efficiently without extra cost. The all-inclusive package included home cooked meals which used local ingredients including freshly caught fish cooked as well as any I have had. The kitchen was able to meet the special dietary needs of a traveler with a severe dairy allergy. I have fished many locations across the USA and Canada, and have never experienced the abundance and variety of fish I came across during this fishing trip, led by the Maestro's Captain, Oscar. He has a personal touch and is thorough in his trip planning. He seems to know everyone. His fish stories are great. The entire experience was highly enjoyable.

Upon arrival, greeted with a complimentary tropical drink. Had our own spacious cabana, comfortable king size bed, mini refrigerator, and large shower with hot water. Breakfast served everyday. Lunch is usually not served unless special arrangements are made. The chef and manager of the restaurant, Kyle Badge, prepared some awesome dinners, especially the fish which we caught & brought back with us to the lodge. The staff at the lodge was so helpful and friendly. Most could understand and speak some English. Can arrange for several types of tours. Taxis are readily available for a trip downtown to Puerto Jimenez and other sightseeing. Fishing was great! Boats & tackle adequate and the captains were knowledgeable and qualified.

Las Islas Lodge provided us with a wonderful experience! We were warmly greeted, given a choice of rooms immediately and received any amenity we could desire (ice, cups) when we requested them. Oscar and Maria Fernanda take great pride in doing things right; this showed everywhere! The grounds are well cared for but very natural, filled with exotic birds and wildlife.

The room was large and comfortable with air conditioning and a nice king bed in a free-standing unit with convenient parking just beside it. Pillows, towels and linens were of good quality. The bathroom was very ample and luxurious. The pool area was comfortable with good chairs and a small but well-kept pool.

At the time of our stay, the restaurant was being rented out and was not in the direct care of the Lodge's owners. Breakfast service was not timely on our first morning. We missed breakfast on our second day, due to an early excursion, however, on our third morning, food and coffee were ready right on time. The food quality was very good.

Oscar provides fishing trips and is well-known throughout the local community as a successful businessman and sometime benefactor. He was a pleasure to visit with when we had the chance. His wife, Maria Fernanda, assisted us on planning a portion of our trip that had been fouled by bad information. She personally took time to help us find and book a hotel in another city in Costa Rica. Her dedication to customer service and her true empathy for others make her an exceptional person and businesswoman.

The quality of service we received at Las Islas Lodge was really superb. My husband and I would highly recommend this lovely lodge and its' owners!
