Excellent- wish we stayed longer!
This was the best place we’ve stayed in Costa Rica. The lodge was beautiful and clean. We saw toucans each morning at sunrise and the ground are stunning. The highlight was hiking to the waterfall. Would recommend staying here to anyone travelling to Costa Rica. The food was authentic, filling and lovely.

Excellent, marvelous stay in the mountains!
As a family of 3, including our 6-year old daughter, we had an amazing time at Santa Juana lodge that is beyond words. It is located at top of the mountains with awesome views and to top it up, we loved the friendly staff and how nice everyone was. We also did a guided tour to the nearby waterfall, which was worth it. It also included exploring a small herb garden on the property and extracting sugarcane juice right next to it! The drive to the lodge was a bit adventurous, but we were warned ahead of time to ensure that we have a 4WD and we plan to get their before sunset. The lodge has a restaurant to have all meals, but we did have a small kitchenette in our cabin, with good number of basic utensils, a good sized refrigerator, a stove, a microwave and an oven offering us an option to cook if we wanted to. We ended up eating at the restaurant other than making coffee in our cabin, which tasted great while sitting in our balcony looking over the lush green mountains!

A nature lover's retreat
My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at Santa Juana Lodge. It was our first trip to Costa Rica, and this was the first place we stayed. What an extraordinary welcome to this amazing country! After a day and a half of arduous travel and multiple delays, we desperately needed a place to decompress. Once we arrived on the property and were welcomed by Allan and the amazing views of nature, all of the stress we'd been feeling melted away instantly. We'd barely parked the car, and Allan immediately showed us a sloth that had taken up residence in a tree nearby, as well as several toucans. When we set foot in our room (the Deluxe Bungalow), we were stunned by the panoramic views from the deck. Allan (who took us on a guided bird/nature tour of the area) and the rest of the staff were so welcoming and warm, truly exemplifying "pura vida". We also loved hanging out with Comanche, the exuberant and friendly dog who lives nearby. This is not an impersonal, resort-style accommodation with multiple pools, bars, and restaurants. It is a small establishment that is run by local families. It takes about 45-60 minutes to drive from Quepos, up a sometimes patchy dirt/rock road, so be sure that you have a 4WD vehicle (and arrive during daylight). The drive isn't so bad once you've done it once or twice - if you're lucky, you might even spot a troop of squirrel monkeys on the way, as we did. If you are looking for tranquility, nature, and true escape, Santa Juana Lodge is the place for you!

Truly paradise! The location is remote but worth the effort for breathtaking views and there are no words to adequately describe the amazing staff(whom we now consider extended family!). Friendly, courteous and always ready to make your experience their priority. This is our new favorite "slice of heaven " and we plan to visit over and over again!!!

I highly recommend staying at Santa Juana Lodge. It is very remote and requires 4 wheel drive to get there but it is absolutely worth it! The scenery is amazing as are the people who work there. Highlight of our trip.

We definitely didn’t stay long enough!! We stayed only one night and could’ve stayed a couple more. The views are breathtaking and we will be back. Allan was very hospitable and truly defines pura vida!! The food is organic and fresh as possible. We love that place and recommend it to anyone visiting Costa Rica. It’s a must!!
