Lodge Margouillat
Ranked #2 of 6 Tambor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

Lodge Margouillat is a hidden gem! It is in tambor in a beautiful secluded set of gardens in the jungle hills with gorgeous landscaping, a perfect swimming pool, and 3 luxury bungalows each with a beautiful dramatic terrace opening onto the lush hills, as well as two gazebo rooms that are made of beautiful teak looking wood and that are open to the gardens. The bungalows are huge and filled with Balinese furniture (beautiful wood accents), beautiful stone basins and showers, and memory foam beds, with AC and walk in closets- they feel really high end and are gorgeous, great value. The gazebos are a "glamping" safari like experience where you are sleeping in the jungle with amazing animals around at night, but you are sheltered in a comfy bed in a beautiful wood room (fan, not AC). We tried both and liked both, but bungalows are more comfortable of course, but if you like camping or a safari/nature experience you will probably love the gazebos. Note the gazebos have private bathrooms and beautiful showers, but you have to walk through the garden to reach them.

Joana and Tom, the hosts designed and built everything themselves, including the beautiful wooden beamed roofs that took four thousand man hours to build- they are French but speak fluent Spanish and English and are amazing- they will drive you to the bus, pick you up from the airport, know all about the area, and will help with anything. They gave us the best restaurant tips. A car is handy as it is down a dirt road, but we saw the other guests who didn't have a car were able to get lifts from the hosts everywhere they wanted to go, so ask about that.

The whole place truly feels like a super luxurious and yet discreet, undiscovered retreat with gorgeous furniture and gardens everywhere and is brand new - only opened a year ago, we stayed five nights and couldn't recommend it more! Really amazing value for the area, and don't miss The Curu park nearby- we saw seven different large mammals in one day, including three kinds of monkeys, rainforest deer, agoutis, etc!

With comfortable rooms and surrounded by nature Margouillat is a great place to relax in a rustic and elegant atmosphere. The Bungalows have great beds and a deck with a relaxing view. Highly recommended!
