Poas Volcano Lodge is in the forested foothills of Poas Volcano. It is reached by a narrow track that passes a farm amid glorious countryside. It is truly buried away. The Lodge is extremely comfortable and the reception areas are tastefully furnished by someone with an eye for European style and detail. High ceilings, wooden beams and floors, comfortable sofas,...

I stayed in the lodge for 3 nights but I wished I spent more time there . I Had a Room in the main building which was beautiful, with a balcony overlooking the valley and the volcano and tastefully decorated. But what really makes this lodge stands out from many others I have stayed in the past is the friendliness...

Lovely retreat with great design and attention to detail. The lodge rooms are extremely comfortable. The sitting room and library are very cosy with little log fires in cold nights. The restaurant offers a very decent short menu and wine.

I have used Poas Volcano Lodge for several intimate retreats with friends and have been more than pleased with the atmosphere, rooms, dining and outdoor space this gem of a hotel provides. Design and built on an active dairy farm, the home is spectacular with amazing use of stone, and bar timber, wood floors and lots of windows to view...

After a long flight into SJO we decided to travel to Poas and spend a few days here instead of in and around the city and what a great decision it was. The hotel is beautiful with wood beams, carvings and furniture everywhere, the food in the restaurant for dinner was lovely and the breakfast was delicious and filling. The...

The surroundings are breathtaking. This boutique hotel is very cozy. We had an amazing view on the volcano from our balcony. Service was great. I ate a delicious sea bass with mango and ginger sauce, and for breakfast the most delicious homemade roasted muesli! Certainly an address to remember!

My husband and I took this trip for my birthday. This lodge was our first night in Costa Rica. Sadly we were supposed to get there around 11:30am and due to flight cancellation and delays (volcano ash) we did not arrive until about 6:30pm. Once there we were very excited. The reception and social areas were very warm a small...

The food is lovely as are the staff but try to get a room in the house rather than the cottages outside they are much nicer. I managed to change my room and the staff were very helpful. The volcano and La Paz are nearby its surrounded by lush farmland. The main house is very stylish.

This was one of the most wonderful places we stayed during our trip. The main house had a very tasteful, warm and cozy atmosphere and dinner there was very nice too.
