We had a room inside the lodge which was gorgeous and the whole living room and lobby were decorated for Xmas which made this a lovely homely hotel. The food in the restaurant was quite good, the staff were great and our tour was really fun and educational.

This hotel really takes it above and beyond!!! For breakfast you get homemade yogurt and fresh picked strawberries on top of choosing your main dish. Because it was raining a little and we wanted to hike a trail nearby, they had rainboots for us to borrow so our shoes wouldn't get all muddy!! They have a game room with pool...

This hotel is amazing! The staff was so nice and the views were breathtaking. If you're coming from the San Jose airport. You have to go to Soda Angel. It's not on google maps or any other social media site. You just have to find it. When you do, you won't be disappointed! Home cooked meals and very good prices!

My family and I spent one night at the Lodge and wish we could have stayed longer. Our trip was cut short due to Hurricane Otto. Not knowing if the hurricane was going to hit the San Jose area, we decided to move our flight up a day. The lady at reception was very helpful in helping us reach the...

Stayed here for just one night and knew as soon as we walked in it would not be enough. Gorgeous, stylish, gigantic rooms. Lovely library with hot tea and cookies in the afternoon. Lovely grounds to wander. The Bird feeder was busy non stop with beautiful colorful birds. and my favorite part - when you retire for the night, there...

My husband have been traveling in Costa Rica and this place was a highlight of our trip. The Lodge is part of a working dairy farm high in the mountain by the Poas Volcano. The weather is colder up here, but a nice change. We met honeymooners and families coming for the weekend from San Jose. There are rooms in...

Well worth the visit. Traveled down a dirt road with dairy cows in front of us as we waited patiently for them to go into the pasture. Arrived at this fabulous lodge and was very impressed with room #6. The wow factor! Went out for dinner and when arrived back to room the bed was turned down and there was...

I will go out of my way to stay here, literally. I have stayed here twice now with my husband and it is just a beautiful hotel. The architecture in the main lodge and the cabins are incredible considering the originally construction was destroyed in the earthquake. The views are just amazing and it always is so cozy with the...

I rarely give 2 stars on hotels that present gorgeous pictures and have great architecture. But reviews should be truthful. Hotel building architecture is nice and unique. Rooms were designed years ago and they are cute. Everything is "antique". Overall hotel ambiance is good, landscape is beautiful therefore I gave it 2 stars. But don't be surprised if you walk-in...
