So make it earlier! The staff was very lovely and we still could get the full menu although we were late. The...

The Natural Lodge Cano Negro was a good place to stay. Rooms were not fancy, but were very comfortable, including AC. Lots of birds to see on the grounds. Meals were good, and very accommodating o birding schedules. Staff were helpful and recommended an excellent birding guide who made our stay at Cano Negro very special.

Stayed here three nights. Nice property with well kept grounds, lots of birds to see on the grounds, fine swimming pool. The room was spacious, comfortable, and air conditioned which was necessary while we were there. They arranged some wonderful birding trips. Listen closely to the guide recommendations-Jimmy was super. WiFi worked pretty well and is located in the restaurant.

We liked everything about this hotel -- the rooms were nice, the air-con worked fine (and was very welcome there), and the food was good as well. The pool was also very nice, but the real reason to go this area is to take a boat trip on the lagoon -- Ernesto did a great job for a low rate,...

First the positives: The wetlands safari with Jimmy was superb, as was the guided night walk. All the staff are super friendly. The food was decent and well prepared. The birdlife in the beautiful gardens is amazing. Not so good: the rooms are quite basic ( but the aircon was excellent). The pool was not properly cleaned so we didn'...

Superb location for wildlife in the wetlands, many different birds on offer. Lodge organises boat trips which are well worth doing. Rooms are nice with small outdoor seating area. Good air con. Wi fi available. Lovely gardens with a swimming pool. Food good, but service a little slow. Certainly would recommend.
