We arrived at Peace Lodge directly after our flight into San Jose. It is approximately an hour + from the airport. We arrived too late for dinner but the staff brought us sandwiches and fruits as a late night snack. The rooms all look out over the rainforest/volcano within La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Within the gardens are a butterfly sanctuary,...

This might be the best place I have ever stayed. Like a dream! The room we had was spotless, with 2 stone hot tubs (indoor and on deck), a fireplace and a four poster bed. Our view was pure cloud rainforest. Having access to the park before it opened was grand, but it wasn't overcrowded during open hours either. The...

Visited in early December before the busy season, and we had the place almost to ourselves, or at least, that's what we believed! There is enough space and amenities that you just don't overlap with many folks, other than in the animal sanctuaries, which were amazing themselves. We stayed at 3 different hotels on our CR vacation, each more expensive...

Visited this hotel on what had to be the wettest day of the year! Having said that, I would have to rate it high on my list of great places to go to. There is a pretty substantial buffet lunch served in an undercover area. On the day it teemed with rain, the place teemed with visitors. It was amazing,...

An idyllic setting with spectacular rooms that you have to see to believe. The park is worth a visit even if you are not staying but have several hours to wander. Scenery from the rooms is breathtaking.

The Peace Lodge is breathtaking! You will find yourself saying wow so many times you may feel like a broken record! They pay attention to every detail, and continue to add attractions and amenities and are focused on continuous improvement.

Hands down the best hotel I've ever stayed at and I've been to plenty. It starts with the perfect Rainforest location at La Paz Waterfalls and animal sanctuary.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located less than one hour from the San Jose (Juan Santamaria) Airport, the Peace Lodge is the perfect place to begin or end your vacation. You don't need to spend your first or last day in a city hotel. Please come spend them in the rain and cloud forest with us and still be close to the airport. We are also only 20 minutes from the Poas Volcano, another "must see" attraction in Costa Rica. ... more   less
