9.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved pretty much everything about this place. Our lanai was amazing and such a nice place to hang out in the chairs or on the hammocks. Hammocks elsewhere was appreciated as well. The river views were great and all of the wildlife on the grounds. The restaurant served good food and service was almost always wonderful. The ambience of the restaurant and bar was great as well. Very thoughtful to have spf and bug spray at certain locations for us to use. Loved having coffee and tea available to us all day in the restaurant to serve ourselves. Also loved the daily happy hours in the bar. All of the excursions and the guides, Norton, Willis and Noel were fantastic. Also liked the fresh juices after some of the excursions!
Cons: The rooms were a little on the dark side. I had a little difficulty booking the excursions. I sent a couple emails but did not receive replies, once at lodge it was not a problem. The check-in process was a little awkward. The initial meeting went well with the nice welcome drink then we were sent to the restaurant but wasn't sure what happened next. We had to seek out someone to see if our room was ready and it was but I don't think anyone was going to tell us. Service at the bar was not fantastic. The bartender was enjoying talking to the ladies too much to be bothered with us.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very pleasant, the food was very good, the rooms are very nice but most of all the location in between the forest, you get to see from the very hotel some spiders, frogs, Monkeys, birds, etc. You can even hear in the morning the howling monkeys with their loud sound. The tours are very organized and the guide is willing to help you in anything you may need. The turtles tour is a must! It is a magic moment and an incredible thing to see
Cons: I didn't like that it was not clear from the beginning that you have to pay extra 40 USD to buy the turtles tour in which you can see them, and also it has to be on cash! We were told about it on the bus, so there was no way we could get some cash

7.9 Good
Pros: Nice swimming pool. In the garden we spotted 2 types of tucans, iguanas in the trees, monkeys, hummingbirds, ... We had an all-inclusive option, we liked the food.
Cons: The room was a bit smelly and outdated. You can only go to the town by boat, a 5-minute boat ride for which an external company charges 3 dollar per person one way.
9.2 Excellent

7.1 Good
Pros: The gardens and pool are lovely. The dinner was also really good on the BBQ night.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Loved location, rooms and bathrooms nice, staff was great.

Cons: inside lodges a little e dated.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Located over the river in a secluded and peaceful patch of rainforest, vs the busy and bustling main land. Catching a boat to the centre and waking up to howler monkeys is a unique experience! Breakfast is tasty - fruit, eggs and coffee. And 241 cocktails are delicious.
Cons: The taxi is around $3/pp - even over 2.5 days that really adds up because you need to go to the mainland for any activities or if you don’t want to eat lunch/dinner at the Hotel. That said, we loved our boat rides because of the people you meet, theyre just pricey. The beds do not have mosquito nets so bring your own.
9.2 Excellent

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Please ask for Walter as a tour guide. Great guy!
