Excellent location the staff, guides, food, pools and rooms beat our expectations. Six adults had a great adventure! This location is only accessible by river boat or small plane which added to the remoteness of the location.

This is a must visit place if you are in Costa Rica - beautiful unspoilt nature around you. A trip down to the lodge is an experience on its own :-) unforgettable!

An excellent base from which to explore. The staff are very helpful and the food was good quality. The rooms are quaint and we were in room 83 near the beach so could hear the sea as well as the birds and monkeys! Highly recommended.

The Laguna Lodge is one of the biggest lodges in Tortuguero, but they manage the size very well with a few pools and the layout of all the lodges. Its a "mostly" all inclusive - alcoholic drinks and some excursions are extra. Rooms are clean and comfortable with a rustic feel (all wood construction) with good amenities. The exception is...

This place was incredible. If you want nature, you got it. From iguanas roaming the property to a frog sanctuary this place has it all. A restaurant about the river, turtle hatching on the beach property. Amazing staff, and delicious food.

Spacious rooms with a lot of charm, Laguna Lodge is a perfect location in Tortuguero. The lack of frills adds to the charm and you really get a sense that Laguna Lodge is committed to eco-friendly practices. The Lodge appears to be a favorite for small group tours. Meals are served buffet style. The rooms are cabin style with comfortable... More

If you book this place through a general tour company they will tell you to stay for 3days and 2 nights. However we contacted the lodge directly and just wanted to stay there for 1 night which I think is more than enough.

First, if you are going to Tortuguero and you are staying at an Eco-Lodge (really your only option), be prepared! It is definitely not rustic but it is not what some tourists might be used to when they travel.
