Costa Rican Disney
First off, the property is beautiful. Absolutely stunning. The service is great and all the staff are very kind and helpful. The animal park on site and the walking trails to the waterfalls are well-kept and enjoyable. I only have two complaints. First off, the bed was extremely uncomfortable. It was rockhard which was disappointing for the rest of the quality of the room which was amazing. I’ve stayed in lots of hotels, and it was probably in the top five worst beds I have ever slept in. My other complaint is how over-the-top the resort is with some things. They’re trying really hard to be a Disneyland type experience for their guest. And that probably works for most people, but for us it was a bit too whitewashed and left a lot of the local culture to be desired. The food was overpriced and not very good, so we mostly drove into the local village to eat and had good experiences there. If you want somewhere safe and “polished” then this is definitely the place for you. But if you want to experience any actual Costa Rican culture, I would encourage you to venture outside of the resort

My best friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peace Lodge. The staff was amazing, the food was good and the views are breathtaking! If you love nature and admiring the beauty in creation this is the place to go! I will definitely be coming back.

I loved our stay here! This place is magical and I was so sad the day we were leaving. My only gripe was that the restaurant food was nothing special for expensive it was, I think for the price dinner and breakfast should have been less bland. However, you do always have the option to leave the resort to eat elsewhere!

Great hotel with extraordinarily spacious and unique rooms but there were a couple issues you would not expect in this price range. The staff and service was excellent! The parking lot was not very secure. It was along a highway with a circle drive that allowed for cars and trucks to enter at high speeds. Our rental was damaged while unoccupied and parked in the lot which resulted in an unexpected expensive problem. Also, there was no A/C in the room which was a surprise. There was a dehumidifier which helped, but you would expect A/C in this price point.

We really enjoyed our stay. At first we felt a little wave of disappointment when we walked into our room, as you could see right away that the bed mattress was dented into the shapes from many past sleepers, and the rugs looked old and ready for replacement or professional cleaning. But the bathroom was amazing and the staff was very kind and attentive. We did feel for the price, which did not include breakfast or any meals (and they were a bit pricey), that shuttle to/from the airport should have been provided as part of the price, or at least not as expensive as it was. All in all we are very happy that we visited.
