Our lodge was peaceful and quiet, with nice neighbours. Yvonne and Thomas made us feel right at home. Everything was clean and tidy, and we didn't even have to leave the property to see howler monkeys and a hummingbird nest. The beds had good mosquito nets (necessary), and there were screens on the windows. But there were significant gaps between...

If you read the other reviews you will see mixed feelings about monkeys, and howler monkeys in particular. Well, you're in Costa Rica - howler monkeys are part of the experience! At Alby Lodge you will see howler monkeys (and also white capuchins). And you will hear them. If you haven't heard howlers before and don't like noise while you...

We stayed 3 nights on Alby Lodge. This is probably one of the best deals in Costa Rica. There are only 4 cabinas but all are build with great care and look really stylish. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean. All are equipped with fan and mosquito net. We only used the fan during the day. At night the temperature...

The cabins are very conveniently located to the village center and beach but still feel removed and quiet since they are located at the edge of the Cahuita National Park. That translates into "many wild animals and plants on the large spacious premises". The build quality of the cabins is top notch. Very airy and clean with all the amenities...

We had a really great stay at Alby Lodges! We loved to chill out in our Bungalow and watch the monkeys climbing around in the beautiful garden! The rooms are very nice and clean, the rancho is also a great Palace to stay and to enjoy a cup of coffee! Thanks to Thomas and Yvonne for the hospitality!

My husband and I recently stayed at Alby Lodge and were overall very comfortable. The location was good - about a five minute walk to the National Park and beach. The howler monkeys will wake you up beginning very early in the morning, but you get used to waking up early (so will the dogs, but I was perfectly happy...

Beautiful, comfortable cabins in a really lovely garden on the edge of "town" - approx 5 mins (if that) to beach / park / town. Our cabin had a double bed and a single bed - both with mosquito nets. We also had a lovely veranda/ porch with a hammock and chair. There are cooking facilities, fridge etc in a...

My husband and I are artists and always travel with a lot of camera gear. We were looking to get away from NYC for a few days and wanted a laid back tropical environment to explore the native animals and plants. Alby Lodge was perfect. We had cabin #4 which sits furthest into the center of the garden. I felt...

My Husband and I spent the last 5 days of our Costa Rican Honeymoon in Cahuita. The town itself is not exactly our preference. We were there to explore the park and beaches as well as just hang-out and relax. Thank goodness for Alby Lodge! Yvonne and Thomas were such excellent hosts! Their property is absolutely an Oasis from the...

The landscape, atmosphere and cabins are nice. They have a lots of birds and monkeys on the site with a nice separate common kitchen area. The mattress and pillows were not comfortable and the toilet didn't flush well but apart from that, the host are nice and it is cheap for what you get.
