We had a fabulous five nights in one of the cabinas. I would only be echoing all the positive things other people have said in their reviews if I wrote my own! It really is a very special place. The ethos makes it special and the staff belief in the ethos help maintain this. It was a privilege to be...

Stayed with a group of photographers. The open air rooms are unique and ours was facing the pool, the jungle and the ocean ~ a small slice of heaven! the food was outstanding. The service was impeccable. I cant say enough good about this wonderful eco- lodge. The staff were very accommodating and made sure we were happy with everything....

The service from start to finish is some of the best we have experienced. The staff know you by name and you are treated like royalty. The location is amazing. It is on the Pacific side of the Osa peninsula at the very bottom. It is not in Corcovado but is part of a protected corridor that links to the...

El Remanso is situated within a large tract of primary forest bordering the Pacific ocean. It is about as remote as you would normally expect to get (no wi-fi, no TV, no newspapers...) and the electricity is generated locally by hydro. The accommodation is in delightful individual bungalows each in their own garden within the lush rainforest. There is no...

From start it finish our visit to El Remanso was first rate. Gabby even checked in with us before we left the US as there was a blizzard and she eased every part of our travel logistics. Can't say enough about the thoughtful environment of this luxurious Eco lodge. Pristine beach where we walked and swam in the tidal pools,...

This was our second trip to El Remanso, and it was everything we remembered and more. The staff recognized us, and seemed genuinely pleased to have us back. The lodging was as beautiful as ever, and the food as tasty. Even better than the last time, there were only two river crossings to get here from Puerto Jimenez, making it...

We, my wife Kim and I, have been to the Osa several times over the past years staying at some really terrific eco-resorts. This year we waited to long to book our usual places so we started looking at other options. We found that El Remanso had one open unit. We had heard good things so we decided to give...

We visited in August last year. We had an excellent stay here. The wildlife walks, lead by Geraldo, were excellent and we learned a lot. We also did the waterfall rappelling which I found hard work but my partner enjoyed. As it was the rainy season there were severe thunderstorms in the evening but luckily the days were dry. The...

This was our fourth visit to Costa Rica, and our first to the Osa Peniinsula. It started with amazing service from Gabby, and ended with feeling like we had become part of a beautiful family in Paradise. The main purpose of our holiday was to relax, tap into the regenerative powers of nature, have an adventure, eat well, be somewhere...
