The Peace Lodge just out of San Jose, Costa Rica was a wonderful stay. One gets to view and visit the La Paz Waterfalls and walk around the property with bird sanctuaries and animal viewings. The rooms are magnificent and one can even go and catch a fish and the restaurant will cook if for you. We spent two nights...

The ride to the Peace Lodge is anything but peaceful, but upon arrival, it is stunningly beautiful and relaxing. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The rooms and grounds are beautiful, and offer a lot to be seen between hiking down to the La Paz falls, and all of the wildlife exhibits that they have. The breakfast and dinner...

What a beautiful and special place! The rooms are so unique with 2 showers( one a waterfall) two jacuzzis ( one out on your deck overlooking the rainforest and animal sanctuary) and a fireplace! The staff is SO helpful and friendly-- you feel like family by the time you leave. The La Paz Waterfall Gardens and Wildlife Refuge are a...

Thank you very much for your review and choosing Peace Lodge for your belated honeymoon. Our wheather is very unpredictable here in the cloud/rain forest and we are sorry you found it uncomfortable to adjust.

It rained constantly for two days, and we didn't care. We loved visiting the hummingbirds, toucans, frogs (the night frog tour with John was great), and butterflies, and we enjoyed the walk along the waterfalls as well. The hotel staff gave us large umbrellas and that was enough protection to keep us going. It was also lovely to sit out...

We began our stay in Costa Rica at the Peace Lodge. The setting was spectacular and our room exotic, with a huge waterfall in the bathroom and a great view into the lush settings. It was a little cooler than I expected, with only one out of three days warm enough for shorts and a bathing suit, but I was...

We stayed two nights at the Peace Lodge during Christmas time. Beautiful flora and fauna. The rooms are superior. Huge bathrooms. Great amenities. Indoor and outdoor jacuzzi, hammock, dvd player, iPod player, etc. The waterfall gardens and animal park were terrific. The onsite restaurants are small and the food is ok not great. The pool is breathtaking but small. Every...

Stayed two nights at the peace lodge and had a great time overall. Lots of animals and lots to do. Rooms are the nicest I've ever stayed in. Pretty isolated location. Food is terrible.

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
