We enjoyed our stay quite a bit. The hosts are very nice and hospitable. Even though there was a lot of rain, the birds at the feeders were wonderful. Hotel is at a nice mid-elevation for birding. Rosana, the host, mapped a very successful birding route for us that led to seeing many target birds. Lunch at Mirador Sitio Angostora...

As others have said, it does have an adventurous driveway. It is cute and quaint decorated with interesting art pieces. There are no elevators so if this is an issue, request the first or second floor (we were on the third). The staff is all very nice and helpful. The food was delicious. The grounds are very nice with beautiful...

Rustic hotel and rooms--maybe more authentic than modern standard rooms. Nice grounds with beautiful vegetation. Great view of Turrialba Volcano. Clean and comfortable beds. There is a short drive to get to the hotel that is not paved and in not very good conditions. Staff was attentive and helpful.

This property is magnificent, with incredible views over the valley in which the town of Turrialba sits. The food in the restraint is fresh and delicious and they have a lot of healthy options. My husband particularly appreciated that they seems to always have a vegetarian option in addition to the meat ones. Breakfast was equally amazing. The staff and...

A wonderful 2 night stay. Hotel in perfect setting, warm, cosy, friendly. Delicious food, we especially enjoyed the breakfasts with warm bread and cinnamon rolls straight out of the oven. A really special place.

We stayed here one night before heading to the international airport. Our room was spacious and well appointed. Shower forceful and water hot. The downside was the climate inside. There were no screens, no air conditioning and no heat and it was raining. Once we closed the windows to keep bugs out it became stuffy. Adding a fan would be...

It's my second time on this lodge and I still amazed with the breathtaking views of the Turrialba Volcano and Valley.

This was our last stop in Costa Rica before going home, and we loved it. The hotel was almost empty giving it a more romantic feel. The food was good, we had a great view of the Volcano from our room. Our hostesses were nice. Couldn't go up to the Volcano because it was active at the time, making it...

I loved my stay at the Guayabo lodge. The owners are some of the kindest people I've met while traveling in Costa Rica and they've hired an equally kind staff. The owners of this hotel are very involved in the community here in Santa Cruz and the nearby city of Turrialba. As such they have proven very helpful in finding...
