We did not stay at the Lodge, but had multiple meals here. The food was really amazing - fresh, delicious, and they were very accommodating with food allergies. Service was exceptional and Bernie and his team were very welcoming. Michael was a superb waiter! Great location and everything was perfect.

This lodge is the place to go if you want a secluded, mellow place away from the action. Wonderful on site open air restaurant and pool. The beach is just a 10 minute walk away. This beach only had a few people on it when we were there (end of February) There are a couple of restaurants nearby that are part of a lodge. Guacamaya Lodge room had a kitchenette.

After touring from Tortuguero to Arenal Volcano to Monteverde to the Guanacaste region, we stayed the last 3 days at the quiet, wonderful Guacamaya lodge. We enjoyed the beautiful place, had lots of fun in the warm pool and the delicious food was awesome. The rooms very lovley and clean. Highly recommended!

If you are looking for a quiet place with excellent food this is the place to be. The hosts are very friendly, it is well managed and you feel like you're in Paradise, lots of birds, monkeys and beautiful gardens. I can highly recommend this place.
