5/5 Excellent

Awesome

This was the perfect place for us to stay. It was quiet and remote with tons of birds to see. We saw a toucan outside our cabin. The service is excellent. The food was great and the menu was broad enough that we had something new every night. We stayed for three nights and explored the area. Its easy to find. The shorter road that is listed as 4x4 could be done in a car if the water crossings are not flooded which would be hard because they are very small. The road is marked once you get out of town. They are few turn offs and hard to get lost. The road is a one lane dirt track but we only saw one other care in 45 minutes. Cabins where comfortable to stay in. You should bring bug spray as it is the rain forest and it is a cabin.

Great stay! Quiet with a jungle feel

We had a great stay at Santa Maria Volcano Lodge. The cabins are really comfortable, situated a bit off the road. There’s a little lake on the property along with a restaurant that’s open for breakfast until dinner. The Lodge will help you arrange hikes in the national park or horseback riding tours, unfortunately we only stayed one night. Of you come by car make sure you take the road from directly east that starts at Aguas Claras. Its much faster and much smoother than the road from the south (coming from Liberia). Would definitely come back:)

4/5 Good

Access is via a 16 km very bumpy and stones road and it takes 40 minutes. Great staff and good cabina. Fantastic grounds and gardens. Good freshly cooked food but not many choices.

Rustic and Quaint

We chose this because of the affordable price and great location It really is a rustic but quaint atmosphere and would be a step up from camping...not to be compared with a hotel. Hard, thin mattresses, cold water and not an entirely "bug resistant" dwelling. No fridge or Wi-Fi in the cabins. With the right expectations, you will enjoy your stay

Overall Positive Experience

Be prepared for 14 kilometers of a really bad road. We enjoyed our stay at Santa Maria Volcano Lodge but we were ready for a rustic place at the remote location. If you are not used to Costa Rica's roads or if you are looking for comfort - you might not enjoy it as much. Positives: surprisingly good food, super cheap. Turn offs: 14 kilometers of a super bad road (even with 4x4), need a flash light to get out of a cabin. Mosquito net would be a great addition to the room. :) Overall: for the money, it was great!
