My all time favourite hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 19, 2004

The lodge consists of individual cottages in extensive grounds, set on the clifftop on the very tip of the Osa Peninsula. Each cabin is rustic and beautifully furnished, with a large terrace overlooking the Pacific. Here you can sit in the evening watching the monekys swing through the trees and flocks of colourful macaws squabble in the branches.

The lodge has no electricty as such, but the restaurant is run using solar panels. The chalets are lit by candles and the restaurant has lanterns and there are some placed around the grounds, but I would strongly recommend you take a torch.

Our room was large, with a double bed and an outdoor open-air shower. (There is no hot water.) The toilet and wash basin is indoors. On the porch is a hammock.

The grounds are huge (300 acres to be precise), with trails to follow, either on your own or with a resident guide. The lodge can arrange lots of activities, we opted for a wildlife walk, night time walk, horse riding and zip wiring to a tree platform. Also available is kayaking, boat trips, massage, fishing and surfing.

Dinner is taken together with the other residents at one large table.

The bar is situated next to the swimming pool and operated an honesty system during daytime. You help yourslef to the beers or soft drinks in the fridge and make a note of what you've taken. Cocktails are available in the eveings, when everybody gathers in the bar to share stories of the day's events. You are welcome to bring your own drinks should you wish.

Unique Quality: We felt so safe and content here, we never even closed our chalet door during the entire stay, whether we were in the room or not.

Lying awake at night listening to the howler monkeys in the woods nearby and watching the waves of the Pacific from the comfort of your own bed cannot be described in words.
