Superb 9,0 From 74 reviews

Very good 8,0
We liked the location in that birds were easy to see throughout. However, the seven minute drive on the bumpy, dirt road was not appreciated. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The food was mediocre, and in fact, inferior to the buffet at the La Selva Biological Station we stayed in before Hotel Cerro Lodge. Also, a window in our room had a missing pane and there was nowhere to hang the hand-held shower head.

Gorgeous grounds
My husband and I stayed one night. We had a motel type Room overlooking trees and plants. There are bungalows as well on the vast, rolling property. Our room was large, very clean with comfortable single beds and a good sized bathroom with fully tiled shower stall. The open restaurant/ lounge area is set higher up and enclosed by trees and tropical plants overlooking a very nice it also gives a view of the ocean over and through the trees. The highlight was seeing several scarlet macaws and a couple of cappuchin monkeys. Staff are very pleasant and welcoming.

Saw more macaws here than on park tour! Also, white face monkeys, and an owl. Birders with cameras love this place and share their knowledge with you. They have a lookout platform for a short walk uphill. Buffet breakfast was good. A/C in rooms. Big shower, clean, friendly staff. Pool is nicely cooler than some I have been in. Stayed one night
