We stayed in an Upper Level Bungalow (the one on the very end next to the bar) for 3 nights. When we arrived on shore (we took a boat taxi from Sierpe), we were met by someone who worked at Tranquilo and he helped us with our bags and drove us to our room (approx. 10mins drive). When we arrived...

We stayed at Tranquilo this past February. We were a family group of 8 and it was the perfect place for us. Mary, & all of the staff, went out of their way to make our stay comfortable & pleasant. From arranging tours, to providing transportation & accommodating a food allergy. The lodge is in the most beautiful setting- amongst...

We stayed in one of the Cabanas, which there are only three. Right outside our room was a negative edge pool with a breathtaking view. Each cabana is its own separate building, with a front porch. On that porch is an amazing hammock and swing chair. The staff set up massages on the front deck of the room. This was...

Tranquilo was wonderful. Our family of 3 stayed in cabin 8, which is the most private of the rooms - it's by itself, above the dining area but below the pool, which we found a great spot. As others have said, the atmosphere and environment are fantastic. We saw Scarlet Macaws, White-faced Capuchins and lots of cool lizards close by...

We have been there for 3 nights. There is a magnificent pool on top of a hill with breath taking view of the bay, wonderful sunsets. The manager takes care of all the activities. There are no choices for the food, but breakfast, lunch and dinner are tasty and served very decorated.real pleasure !

The best vacation ever!! There was a special aura and surprise at every turn, every day. The beauty of the property and the ocean was magnificent. The sounds and sights were a sensory overload. It was a trip of a lifetime awakening forgotten emotions and the beauty of life, love and nature. There were so many things worth mentioning we...

We stayed here on our final night in Costa Rica. Everything about this was above expectations. Our room was spacious (3 beds - 2 singles, 1 double), the bathroom was huge - the shower head alone was humongous. Plenty of towels. Meals were provided - lunch, snacks, dinner, and breakfast. All of it was delicious and well made. The snacks...
