“Excellent Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Fuego Lodge is an amazing property. It is intimate with only 3 villas and 3 condo style units. It offers a beautiful pool with a shallow end for kids and a large deep end for adults, the poolside area is large and offers lots of shade from the relentless Costa Rican sun. To get so many amenities for a 6 unit property is unheard of. It allowed us to interact with our neighbours and to have communal lunches and dinners, which is what a holiday is all about, the experience! My wife and I went with our 13 month old daughter. Before we left we thought we would have to spend a majority of time inside but the gardens are so lush and offer so much shade that we were outside whenever my daughter (or I) wasn't sleeping or stuffing her face with delicious papaya, mango or pineapple. The property is well enough off the main road that it is super quiet, you don't hear anything other than Howler Monkeys. Our units were maticulously cleaned each day and sheets washed every few days if required. Barbara, the owner, even had a Pack 'n Play for our daughter to sleep in, which is one the many ways she went well beyond the call of duty to make our holiday perfect. The kitchen has is better equipped than mine back home. My sister and bf joined us part way through the trip and gave me much credit for finding such a spectacular property, it made me look like a superstar. We have no complaints for Fuego Lodge, wether you are traveling with or without kids. If you are going to Santa Teresa, look no further! Thanks Barbara, we look forward to our return visit ASAP.

We had a great time at Feugo lodge. It was a great value and even nicer than we expected. Clean open rooms, nice pool, and well manicured grounds. The owner was flexible and friendly. We felt right at home and well taken care of. Loved the big shower in our room and the hammocks by the pool. Also great location, a short walking distance from the beach!

We have recommended Fuego Lodge to everyone we know that is visiting Costa Rica. We stayed there for 6 weeks and had a wonderful time. Barbara and her family are incredibly gracious and I consider them friends for life. The whole lodge is gorgeous, in a central but quiet spot, and always well maintained. The pool was always clean, and a perfect place to start and end the day. The apartment was perfect for us, a family of four with two girls under the age of 6. I can't say enough good things about our experience at Fuego Lodge. We plan to get back there as soon as we can, as it was truly a wonderful vacation and we know it will be again!

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!

we had a big group(not all of us were originally staying there) and not all other accommodations worked out as planned but Barbara and her staff made every effort to do whatever she could to accommodate us and never have I had such a sweet kind person to look out for us in such a way...we were there last year this time...for a whole week during new years....was in Costa Rica for 3 weeks and this place topped all...lovely pool...we had a bit of all the rooms at one time or another!! and all were CLEAN and comfortable and relaxing...she made us feel welcomed and taken care of every minute we were there...location was kickin...store/good restaurants right down the hill...easy access to beach too....you seriously can not go wrong with fuego lodge....only wish I was there now.....cheers....
