Passion Fruit Lodge

Reviewed 19 April 2016

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Passion Fruit Lodge in Cahuita. Our family of four was delighted with the hospitality, serenity and beautiful setting. We stayed a little over a week and had plenty of help from Cederic and Audrey in coordinating outings. We really appreciate that they were able to connect us with two local guides (who seemed more like old friends!) Titto and Kesh who shared their love and knowledge of everything from soccer and surfing to the wildlife of Cahuita National Park and the Leatherback Turtles of Gandoca. We have two boys (11 and 13) that will remember these experiences for a life time. The lodge is well set up for cooking, there are plenty of great places to eat but it was nice to have our own meals at times. Great care and attention has been put into the grounds. There is a wonderful display of frogs, native flora and so much more. The pool is great way to start or end the day!

We would highly recommend the Passion Fruit Lodge!

Thanks for everything Cedric and Audrey!

We have to say a big 3 person family thank you to Cedric and his family.
The lodge is immaculate, light, airy and very, very tasteful. Lots of polished local wood, beautiful grounds, a fabulous swimming pool and plenty of wildlife.
Cedric took us to a local organic chocolate producer, which was a great bonus. Well worth doing.
Good road access to Cahutia, the Sloth Sanctuary and the beaches further east. A touch of Caribbean heaven there.
Bring some food to cook on the open kitchen, or bbq and kick back after a great Costa day.
The lodge is great for a family, group or romantic couple. There are a few different size houses. I can't recommend it highly enough!
Thank you again Cedric!

Absolutely loved our stay at the Passion Fruit Lodge. My brother, father, and I were riding through on motorcycles, and Cedric and Audrey were great hosts. The provided guidance on local wildlife walks (dad is an avid bird-watcher), as well as guidance on crossing into Panama. The lodge was flawless, with beautiful landscaping and amenities. I accidentally left an item there, and Audrey mailed it back to the United States for me very quickly. Extremely helpful. Finally, they have a breakfast option for a few dollars, and it is definitely worth it. Loved our stay!

We stayed here for 4 days, and we can truly say that it was the most pleasant and peaceful time we had in Costarica.
The owners Cedric and Audrey are very welcoming and kind and they really take care of their guest! They took time to explain every nice thing to do and even more, they brought us to visit the most beautiful spots near Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo.
The lodge is really fantastic, refined with classy wood pieces everywhere, very confortable and spacious, fully equipped.Cedric proposed to us a night walk within the lodge property and we saw the green frogs,firefly, hyguanas, and even a small snake, we were all amazed !
The breakfast they carefully prepare is very good and balanced with fresh fruits, home made cake and juices and marmelades, bio chocolate,bacon & eggs ... etc etc.Thank you a lot guys, you're a fantastic team, we never forget these holidays !

We stayed a week at the beginning of March, in one of the single cottages. All are newly built with modern conveniences and extremely comfortable. Hosts Audrey and Cedric couldn't have been more helpful and really made us feel welcome and comfortable, as if we were long lost friends. We had our own vehicle, but Cedric was willing to drive us into Cahuita if we needed it. His recommendations - from national park guide Tito to restaurants and what attractions are worthwhile - were excellent. The grounds of the lodge are wonderfully maintained and the pool is fantastic. We enjoyed sitting out in the shade of the covered patio for a late afternoon cocktail, and there is also a bbq one can use if so inclined. It's a wonderfully peaceful place at night, too, perfect for sleep. And waking up to the jungle sounds of wildlife - the howler monkeys are incredible - was an amazing experience. It is definitely a place I would return to.
