The Phidjie Lodge was our best and most beautiful lodge we had on our 3 weeks holiday. The garden and the houses are well maintain and everything is very clean. The shower hat the highest waterpressure on our trip and the water was warm. The houses are decorated with love. The pool area is also very enjoyable. Olivier and Isabelle made our stay very familiar, peaceful and they were very friendly and helpful and gave us good information about the region. Olivier showed us the birds and monkeys which visited the garden. He also explained some plants to the children. Thank you, Olivier and Isabelle, for this quiet and wonderful place and stay. Franziska and family

Phidjie Lodge is a hidden gem nestled in the tranquil village of Ojochal in the beautiful lush green forests of Costa Rica’s Zona Sur. I was so glad to have found lovely place, I kept adding another night to my visit. The bungalow was sparking clean, built and decorated by the talented and artistic owners Isabelle and Olivier. The bungalow was artfully decorated and outfitted with functional comfortable furniture sufficiently furnished with utensils for when I chose to cook. The nights were comfortable and cool, I actually had to turn the fan off in the early morning. The gardens are lovely, colorful, thick, and lush with a plethora of birds and sounds of nature. The pool is beautiful and refreshing and the poolside area is very inviting and relaxing in the midst of the lush green garden. Isabelle and Olivier are delightful hosts with plenty of recommendations for interesting adventures in the area as well as stories of their adventures around the world. It was extremely relaxing staying in the bungalow, exploring the garden and beautiful creek and relaxing by the pool. Several beautiful beaches are within just minutes of the bungalows as well are numerous waterfalls, not to mention the abundance of quality restaurants within minutes of the lodge. I am looking forward to returning to Phidjie Lodge and enjoying more time there as soon as I can.

We just loved everything about this place! I stayed with my friend for 1 night and loved everything about our short stay! The place only has two bungalows, so you will have a lot of privacy. The property is just beautiful, you feel like you in the middle of the jungle. The pool is super clean and refreshing, the bungalows are beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable and the owners, Olivier & Isabelle, are the most lovely people we met on our entire Costa Rica trip! They will read every wish from your lips and are just a delight to talk to! Go to Phidjie Lodge - you won't regret it!

Two very lovingly and practically furnished bungalows by Olivier in the middle of a beautiful garden and a dreamlike Pool. little paradise perfect to relax after trips or just to let your mind wander. never on our travels have we found an accommodation in which so much love has been invested. olivier and his lovely wife isabelle run this lodge with a great deal of warmth and hospitality. we felt at home. They help you plan trips, have great tips for restaurants and help you wherever you can. Several ylang-ylang trees exude an enchanting scent in the garden in the evening and when it rains. you can discover many animals with a little time and patience. butterflies, many species of birds, monkeys, bats and and and ... we will never forget it and wish all guests an unforgettable time. thank you olvier and isabelle for this wonderful time😍
