My husband, son(18), daughter(17) and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mal Pais at Blue Jay Lodge. The bungalow was a delightful space with full shower and a large bedroom and balcony with a window onto the forest of Mal Pais- just what we wanted. A large ceiling fan and an oscillating fan kept most of us comfortable in the heat. The staff were friendly and very helpful.
We met guests from France and the US, during our stay.
The typical Tico breakfast was delicious as was the Americano. The lovely Mal Pais beach is just across the street and the pool is adjacent to the breakfast pavilion.
Hearing the Howler Monkeys in the mornings and seeing large iguanas and beautiful birds from our balcony hammocks was a wonderful treat.
Our children especially loved Poopah(sp?)- the 2.5 year old, resident canine, who followed my daughter "home" to our bungalow one night and greeted us for a belly rub, at every breakfast.More
