We loved our stay at Rana Roja, the food was good, pool was clean, monkeys jumping from the trees in the distance, and truly an outdoor experience while still having a nice roof above our heads. Beds very comfortable too.

I stayed here two nights along with a large group of students during a trip of CR. RR Lodge was a perfect place for a group of our size. It was plenty nice for students, yet offered a truly unique experience. The staff was great and the food was also top notch. (It was 'typical' CR food.)

The cabins are greatly set within the rainforest.... No windows, just screens. Very clean. However: bathroom needs renovation... Very basic plus the water smells like iron(rust in water heater?)... Also very basic for the price. Yet: great pool, The choice of 2!

Location really good, jungly, 5 minutes by water taxi ($2 per person) from Tortuguero. Its odd though because its actually one line of cabins stretching back from the river but within Evergreen.

So much of Rana Roja deserves five stars. The setting is amazing, walkways and cabins on stilts, more "in the middle of the jungle" than many lodges I have stayed at. The cabins are what you would expect and there is a choice of swimming pools. The manager (unlike a couple of comments I have seen) we found both friendly...

We stayed in Rana Roja lodge 2 days, from 9 Dec to 11 Dec 2015, instead of the three planned, anticipating our departure. We asked for a quiet cabin after reading some negative reports concerning noisy accomodations. We was given a bungalow near the room building. We had a very bad experience, the worst in all our three weeks trip...
