“Great vacation with our 3 year old daughter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

We stayed at Fuego Lodge for 10 days and loved everything about it. Its proximity to the beach, a grocery store, and the pizza place at the bottom of the hill were especially appreciated, as we did not have a car or any means of transportation besides our feet. We had our 3 year old daughter on the trip, and she too loved Fuego, especially the pool where we spent at least half of each day.

The hosts are wonderful, just attentive enough without going overboard. Barbara was even kind enough to ride her scooter down to the pharmacy and buy us some medicine when we needed it.

Just a great, wonderful place in every way. Clean, safe, fun, perfect.

Room Tip: The last poolside bungalow has an outside kitchen that makes it extra special.

My name is Angie & I stayed at the Fuego Lodge with a friend of mine for her birthday/holiday celebration. Prior to the trip, it was incredibly easy to communicate with the owner Barbara to organize details and to gain tips on how to get to her location being that I was driving from San Jose area. Her directions were fabulous as we were not lucky enough to rent a car with GPS & were dependent on maps. Upon arrival she and her husband (and lovely pups) were very welcoming and showed us around the property. I rented a pool side room which was alot bigger than i had anticipated and the room was extremly clean. No worries of bugs or wierd critters the entire five day stay. Barbara and her husband were very helpful and available whenever we had a question. She also gave us good tips on how to get to our next location because she apparently communicates well with travelers that stay with her and realized we could have some problems with certain roads if we followed the path we had planned to take to our next destination. Fuego is a beautiful property and the location is fantastic because in either direction the beaches are in walking distance and you can explore a few. It's also easy to get up their driveway if your not lucky enough to have a 4 wheel drive , which wasn't available during our trip. I wou

A paradise within paradise! We just visited the Santa Teresa region with my fiance and my 16 year-old daughter and have been so blessed to have found Fuego Lodge. Not only is the place asbolutely beautiful but it is also super quiet, extremelly clean, totally safe and run by an amazingly sweet woman by the name of Barabara. You will not find better customer service anywhere else. We had to leave fuego lodge before our vacation time was over as our rental period there ran out and, believe me, no other place matched Fuego lodge when it comes to price, beauty, cleanliness, quietness, safety, proximity to the beach and customer service.We found a little jewel in paradise and will surely be back. So, if you are visiting the Santa Tersa region, do yourself a favor and stay at Fuego Lodge, you will LOVE it!

Stayed here on recommendation from a friend and it was a great experience. The rooms were really clean and the whole place was awesome...I had to work through part of my vacation and the wifi connection was great. Loved talking to the owners, and they had great recommendations for what to do in the Santa Teresa area. Definitely going back if I'm ever lucky enough to return to Costa Rica.

Nothing I can say would capture how wonderful this place is.

The owners, Itai an Barbara, have created a little piece of paradise here. The place is beautiful, and blends in with the jungle perfectly. It's clean, safe, comfortable and very inviting. And the pool is great.
It's even more beautiful I real life then in the pictures.

I stayed there for a week after looking at a lot of other places and I can definitely say this is the best.

The owners are also extremely nice, helpful and friendly. They'll make sure you enjoy your stay there.

Thank you both for making my vacation so great!
