Like our first visit, we spent one night here on the way from Samara to Liberia. It's an excellent location just a short walk to the beach, and our dinner and breakfast were both very high quality. We went to El Fogon de Dona Luisa for lunch on the way to the airport and would

If you are looking to get off the beaten path, this is the (ECO) civilized place for you. Lieke and Michiel were awesome hosts! They bend over backwards for their guests. Property is very well maintained, rooms very clean, albeit a squeaky bathroom door that is a bit loud in the

This is a lovely place to stay and enjoy the lovely Junquillal (desert) beach. The hotel is nice, well maintained and simple. The restaurant is a real asset as well as the friendly welcome from the hosts!

Hi Helen, thank you first of all for your interest in our lodge. From San Jose you can come to our lodge with private taxi $ 250 for a 4 hour drive or by bus from San Jose centre from the Alfaro Busstation to Santa Cruz (4 hours) and from Santa Cruz another bus to PLaya Junquillal (45 min.). There are shuttle buses that go daily from San Jose to Tamarindo (half an hour from Junquillal) and they charge approx. $ 50 pp. From Tamarindo it will be another $ 50 to our lodge with private taxi. Let me know if you need more information or if tere is anything else I can help you with, sunny regards, Lieke van de Loo

It is suitable for a family and there's a pool. However, not so much a swimmable beach. The closest beach (walkable distance) has relatively strong tides and is not a beach for swimming. I suggest renting a car (not necessary but I recommend it - it's easy to drive around) and you can get to some nicer beaches about 20 minutes or half hour away. Hope this helps!

"Very quite, all cabinas are similar. Beds are comfy."
"I think that any room you choose would be wonderful."
"Go for a cabina with air conditioning. Persian or Mexican."
"Hosts are your best source for information about the local area."
"If you want authentic Costa Rica go with the African theme. Otherwise, go with the Mexican theme. Either way, it is amazing!"
