two couples, first time in CR, first time staying in ecolodge. we loved the bumpy, windy, unpaved road to ecolodge - made it seem more of a remote destination. ecolodge is situated on 10 acres of tropical rainforest, of COURSE you are going to have bugs (reading some of the bad reviews below...) but it's an accepted fact of being...

I have traveled pretty extensively and feel that I have an excellent grasp of what constitutes a good rating from a bad rating when evaluating a hotel or resort or ecolodges, etc. And, I will acknowledge that reviews can have a very subjective element. However, for this establishment, it falls under the category of "do I believe the majority of... More

William and his staff along with the rustic jungle setting are what makes this stay an excellent stay. The first morning hike to the waterfalls and riverbed was excellent. William pointed out the plants, birds and animals on site, including their special cinnamon tree. He arranged our trip to Baldi hot springs, guided us to Mistico hanging birdges, arranged a... More

Our family stayed at Princesa de la Luna recently, and we can't recommend it enough. On our first morning we were treated to an incredible hike around the property, which included river walking, waterfalls, and a mud bath (and another waterfall to wash off). Don't miss this--it was a highlight of our 16 days in Costa Rica. Our hosts were... More

My friend and I just stayed for 3 nights. It is unlike anywhere we have stayed before. It's remote so you will find peace and quiet if that is what you are looking for. It is off the beaten path so make sure that's what you are anticipating. It is a little difficult to find taxis that are willing to... More

We booked this Eco Lodge for two nights. Starting off things went well, my contact Jonathan Davies, responded promptly and answered all my questions. I read all the reviews and looked at all the pictures. I felt confident with our decision and couldn’t wait to stay here. We arrived to a deserted place. When we were finally welcomed, we were...

We (2 adults, 17 & 20 Yr old) had the privilege of staying here for 3 nights. William and the family of staff were all so wonderful, friendly, knowledgable and welcoming hosts. The rooms are not 5 stars fancy but clean, comfortable and have everything you need. You are there for the grounds and beautiful scenery. The hike William offered... More

Sadly, we were only here for two nights before driving south. I was a bit nervous with my two year old son and the drop offs mostly because my son never walks or slows down. But, the longer we were there, the more I was able to relax. William and Willmar were exceptional hosts, providing amazing meals, fruit juices, guidance... More

Princesa de la Luna is an incredible eco lodge; we stayed in the cottage for 2 nights. The location is a peaceful, quiet setting and perfect for relaxation.
