We stayed here for just one night on our tour through Costa Rica. There were 7 of us and we all agreed it was the best accommodation on the trip and wished we had another night here before moving on!

The lodge is perfectly located on a hillside in the heart of the rainforest. Very inviting -when we arrived we were met with a welcome drink and the lovely french owner Christine.

The rooms were beautiful, modern and clean - your own individual cabin with huge glass windows with amazing views and sounds of the rainforest surrounding you. Bathroom was very spacious too and i thought the private window in the shower was a nice touch!

The main lodge housed the restaurant and verandah, which was perfect for a relaxing drink, with a lovely cool breeze in the evening!

A good breakfast with a bit of a bird show as they have bird tables on the balcony which many beautiful birds visit.

A wonderful stay, would highly recommend to everyone!

Little did we realize what an international experience it would be at Tenoria Lodge. The owners are French so not only was I able to speak Spanish with the staff I was able to dust off a bit of French too.

The lodge is small and you get very personalized attention from Christine, the owner, as well as her staff. For primarily English speakers Carlos was a great help. The overall feeling of the place is low key and relaxed with service provided with a genuine smile.

We had the best homemade toasted bread for breakfast served with two delicious fruit butters: peach and banana. After being served bread with a fruit plate the staff then cooked us a breakfast of our choice. We are vegetarians and dinner was a collection of veggies, rice, potatoes, and cheese. One night we had a very tasty garbanzo bean dish. We had bought a bottle of wine in town and there was no problem asking Carlos to open it for us for dinner.

The grounds are gorgeous complete with a Jacuzzi. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There is a great mountain breeze at night. This is important as there are no ceiling fans. Each room does come with a stand up tower fan.

The Tenoria Lodge is also at a great location. It is right off the main road through the area. To get to some of the other lodges area you need to drive on dirt/rocky roads that make for difficult traveling to and from.

Room Tip: Easy to find and right off the main road. All rooms are separate bungalows and easy to access. If you have mobility concerns ask for one close to the reception area. Bird feeders on the deck just outside of the dining room attract many different types of birds.

A non-fussy but very attractive lodging. Rooms have little in them save a comfortable bed and a great view of the volcano (plus your own private greenery) through huge windows.

The staff and owners are very warm and welcoming. Breakfast was fine. Dinner was okay but others had suggested we go into Bijagua to dine -- prices better and more variety. We were only there one night, so can't comment on the alternative.

It is about 3 Km to turn-off to the park, and then there's a rather rough road to negotiate to get to the walk. The staff at the Lodge arranged for us to be picked up by a shuttle that spared us the ordeal of driving a non 4-wheel drive and risking the tires/axel, undercarriage, etc.

This place is really great!

At check-in we were met with fresh fruit smoothies by Kimberly, who is the most fantastic, bubbly tri-lingual Costa Rican you could ever hope to meet. She was full of great information for our stay. (Thanks again Kimberly, you rock!)

The cabin (we were in #8) was absolutely GORGEOUS. Floor to ceiling windows & a great view! Felt very secluded. All linens, etc, were very nice and cabin was VERY clean.

The included breakfast was DELICIOUS. Really enjoyed the fruit. We were slightly confused about what was included and what wasn't (we ordered eggs everyday & were expecting to be charged for them at the end, but never were - I guess they too are complimentary?). We ate at the restaurant twice. The first night we had filet mignon and it was DELICIOUS. The second night the food wasn't as good, but definitely palatable.

The hot tubs were nice after a day running through the jungle, although my party agreed that they weren't close to hot enough (95-97 degrees). A pool would have been AMAZING!

The owners are fantastic and were very accomodating, they were able to bake a cake somewhat last minute to surprise my boyfriend for his birthday. Be warned however that they are French & their English, while good, is slightly lacking so some things were lost in communication.

My only complaint was the water temperature in the room. Out of the 3 days, I never once got a hot shower. Not even a WARM shower. Cold, cold cold! Which was VERY uncomfortable on cool evenings. I understand that it is an eco lodge, etc, but I don't feel that a 10 minute hot shower is unreasonable. Maybe something that could be looked in to...?

I highly recommend cabin #8, as it is in the back in the corner, so you don't have people walking by your cabin. Beautiful place!

Room Tip: Cabin #8 or any of the ones in the back, so no one can look in your big windows!

My boyfriend and I began a 9 day vacation with a two night stay at Tenorio Lodge and it was the perfect way to start. The lodge was easy to get to from the airport in Liberia, paved roads all the way to the lodges' driveway. Once there we were greeted with fruit smoothies and a lovely tri-lingual front desk employee who gave us a quick tour of the grounds and showed us our room. It was a beautiful bungalow with large shower and comfortable bed. It was also very close to the Tenorio volcano national park including Rio Celeste waterfall as well as the bank and market. The view of the clouds over the volcano were spectacular as well. You're smack dab in the rainforest so remember your poncho (though our room had a lodge umbrella right inside the door).

Room Tip: They are in the process of building more bungalows so you may want to request a room away from the construction, though we were right next to it and had no problem.
