You are surrounded by the jungle and just minutes from town. Wake up early and you hear and see birds of all kinds. Just quiet and bird songs. I also recommend stepping outside after midnight. There are almost no lights and the sky is magnificent. It's been years since I've seen so many stars. The food in the restaurant leaves...

It is about 2 KM away from the town and up high in the mountain, about $10 taxi to town. We stayed 2 nights in cabin #6 last week which is furthest from the office. The free WiFi would not be reached from the room. The cabin is very simple, no TV or fan. It has a queen bed, a...

The lodge is in a beautiful forest high up in the clouds, as the name suggests. Our room was clean and cozy and the bed was comfortable. The restaurant and staff were very nice; food was real good. We enjoyed the monkeys and birds in the trees outside our cabin; they made it fun and noisy with nature's sounds. No...

Thank you for sharing your experience, and it's great you got the full nature encounter enjoying our trails and having the chance to see flora and fauna, specially the night walk tour which offers a unique experience in the forest.

Room was an ordinary one. Very terrible pillows and bed springs were protruding out. When pointed to the front staff , they had no response. Front office staff was helpful and pleasant. Had reasonably good breakfast though. High priced as compared to amenities offered.

Thank you for your review, we'll continue to improve as always we appreciate your comments and suggestions. Our accommodations are designed to create a balance between nature and comfort. The spacious bungalow-style bedrooms are simple and basic to provide a real mountain lodge experience. They are however, very cozy, comfortable and warm to enhance the natural feel of home.

If you feel to be in the jungle surround by nature, sound of animal, birds and insects... that's the place! Everywhere you look there is jungle and the dining room is amazing! While you eat you can contemplate a big valley full of that green jungle and sometimes you can see people passing in the air on the zip line!...

Thank you for your review, you're right there is not a bad view anywhere on the property and that's because we want our guests to experience a real and unique nature encounter even when they eat or sleep.

We spent 3 nights here as a family. The rooms are basic but comfortable, they do get light with sun up but given the number of activities in the area that is not really too much of an issue. What makes this hotel are the stunning grounds and forest surrounding it. You could quite easily spend a day just walking...

My whole family of five raved about this lodge! First the staff:top notch and genuinely kind. They worked with us to add our son last minute and never made it seem like an imposition. The waitstaff was so friendly and kind. The food was excellent. Three choices for breakfast and very filling. Dinner was even better. The grounds were teaming...

This is one of the most wonderful cabin I have stayed so far. The surrounding is astonishing. The restaurant has a great view of the rainforest, and you will definitely see the hummingbirds. You can even see people doing the original canopy tour through the amazing forest. The room is huge and spacious. There is no air conditioning in the...

The room was comfortable, paneled walls and high ceilings with a large bathroom. The king-size bed was roomy but not super comfortable. The lodge has a very pretty setting. There were quite a few birds, especially hummingbirds. The location is isolated, but we had shuttles for our tours and the taxis were not expensive, so this was not an issue....

We loved our stay here and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer! This is a small place with chalets laid out in the grounds surrounded by the forest. There are walking trails in the grounds and a fun looking zip wire course. (I wish we'd tried it!) There was a warm welcome at reception and we had...
