This is one of the most wonderful places I have ever stayed (and I have stayed at many!). If you want to be close to the Corcovado National Park, this is the place to stay! The location is stunning, the staff could not be more gracious, the views are fabulous, the tour guides are remarkable, the pool is lovely, the...

We spent 3 nights at Lana's eco-lodge. The first thing we noticed was the great hospitality here. The owner Lana and her mom do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. And that can be said from every staff member. It felt like being part of the Luna-family. After every trip a nice refreshing glass of water is served...

Luna Lodge is simply one of the most beautiful, enriching experiences you will ever have. It is truly an experience; set deep in the rain forest, with bungalows that are perched on a mountain overlooking a gorgeous valley. I cannot adequately describe how unique Luna Lodge is. The owner, Lana, and her crew, are so welcoming, helpful, and committed to...

The Luna Lodge is a very special place located on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. Lana, the owner truly brought her dream to life, and my husband and I were lucky enough to visit her magical lodge. We recently got married and decided to honeymoon/spend Christmas at Luna because one of our friends had visited the lodge 6 years...

Luna Lodge provides guests with a singularly unique opportunity to escape the stress and electronic assault of the modern world and revitalize their bodies and souls in a rainforest paradise resplendent with natural wonders.

My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon. It was our absolute favorite place to stay in Costa Rica (and we stayed at six different places).

If you want California in the middle of a Central American rainforest, you will like this place. The grounds are manicured and neat, most likely to keep insects, snakes, frogs, and other critters (which we like to see) far away from guests. There are beautiful stone walkways everywhere; we prefer trails, even if muddy. Trees and vegetation around the Lodge...

Dear Peel, I read the "bad review," and think the other couple nicely addressed some of the issues- but-- Here are some thoughts: Luna Lodge is in the heart of the rainforest. Our "...

Visiting Luna Lodge was my first visit to the Osa Peninsula. We were a little nervous to drive all the way there after hearing how tough it may be.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Secluded in the tropical rain forest bordering Corcovado National Park, Luna Lodge is a unique resort described by many as "...a piece of true paradise". Its appeal is, not only, its natural beauty and environment, where the heliconia hang three feet long, and the howler monkeys wake you in the morning, but also, its ambiance. The owners' passion for the preservation of the forest is ever present, and the attentive courtesy, friendly staff always serve "con mucho gusto... with pleasure". ... more   less
