how far San Jose airport is from this lodge and I read that bungalow 9 was in bad condition, has it been fixed?

Response from Jessica B | Reviewed this property |
It is between 3.5-4 hours from San Jose to the lodge. All of the bungalows are in great condition. Whatever you read was not recent. The staff and lodge are both amazing. Hope this helps.

Its a drive, I believe it was about 3 hours. But its a beautiful drive along the coast. Lots of beautiful places to stop at. I don't know anything about bungalow 9. But our room was great.

Buenas tardes, estoy interesada en ir en Agosto porque he visto muy buenas recomendaciones del lugar. Lo que me preocupa es el acceso, ya que no cuento con un vehículo 4x4, y el alquiler de los mismos es muy elevado. La pregunta es si con un vehículo Suzuki Celerio 2016 se puede acceder sin dificultad? Cualquier recomendación lo agradecería.
