This was the third stop on our wildlife tour of Costa Rica and was definitely the highlight.Greeted by name by all the staff, very casual but extremely professional, we could have stayed here for ever! We had chosen a cabin rather than a room and found ourselves away down the forest trail, hidden from prying eyes in the midst of...

Spent a wonderful 6 days over Christmas 2013 at this beautiful resort/lodge nestled in a remote & secluded 200 acre patch of the Osa peninsula rainforest. We stayed in a classic cabin as a family of three, but it could easily accommodate 5. We were worried about the lack of air-con at first but, true to their word, the design...

We spent part of our honeymoon at El Remanso and loved every second. We stayed in La Guinda, one of the deluxe cabins and it was worth ever penny. It was so peaceful, remote and relaxing. The cabin is very basic - with a lovely stone bathroom - but has everything you need, including a killer view of the Pacific....

Spent 6 days here over Christmas. Our deluxe cabin was perfect, large, clean, airy and staff had gone the extra mile to provide a large extra bed for my 6ft son. All staff were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable, especially our guide,Heraldo. Beautiful views and surroundings. So relaxing to be in a place without internet, mobile connection, TV etc, though...

We are very well travelled and this is one of our favourite places on planet earth. It truly is an eco friendly responsible establishment. The management and staff are exceptional, the food and lodgings are just perfect for a stay of this kind and the wildlife is literally on your doorstep. This is a place that one is lucky to...

We stayed in a cabin in the grounds of El Remanso, which was basic but very comfortable and with a great view from the deck accross the forest as far as the sea. The eco lodge restaurant served fresh food sourced locally with fish caught on the day. There was a limited menu but the quality was excellent even for...

This place lived up to our expectations. While not perfect, the setting, the service, the food, and the activities are for the most part very good. The best part is the Osa itself - you are truly off the grid - no internet, phone, TV, newspaper, etc. You immediately lose track of what day it is and quickly start to...

My fiancé and I spent three nights at El Remanso in early January 2014. It truly is difficult to put in words how amazing our stay was, but I will try. We were in the La Guinda cabin, which was beautiful. This is one of the two "deluxe" cabins, but as far as I can tell the standard cabins were...

I went to El Remanso for my best friends wedding in September 2013. The place is absolutely beautiful and the kind staff goes out of their way for their guests. Upon arrival I was greeted by the owners Adri and Dani who served a drink and explained the layout, amenities, and activities. The cabins and grounds are very clean and...

I spent a few days at El Remanso last December and I honestly cannot wait to go back there, the Lodge is definitively worth the drive from San Jose'!
