The Lookout Inn Lodge, Carate
Exceptional10.0
Paradise but pricey meals!
Amazing eco lodge near the end of the road and the beginning of the jungle. The owners are extremely friendly and funny - and the rooms are unique and open air, making for a fun and adventurous experience. This place isn’t for the luxury focused traveler - it takes a bit of effort to get to and there will of course be bugs and critters around. We loved this about it. The secluded beach is one of a kind. Only downside - meals aren’t included and are extremely expensive: $15 for lunch and $25 for dinners. This place isn’t remote enough to warrant those prices, although the dinners were very good. Lunch left something to be desired. Overall, great experience. I think if you book directly with the hotel you might get a better rate and meals included - so look into that! They are pretty responsive by email.

Fair4.0
Good staff, bad management
The location of Lookout Inn is gorgeous, and the room itself was clean. Bear in mind the hotel is a two hour walk from the entrance to Corcovado, which seems to be usual for the Osa Peninsula. My mother and I stayed for two nights, and would not have been able to tolerate much longer. The staff is generally agreeable, and the guides were very good, but the owner is a terror. He is consistently drunk when interacting with guests, is rude and unwavering with staff in front of guests, and is overall a presumptuous and unfriendly person to deal with. Additionally, though this is a lesser complaint, it was about 95 degrees fahrenheit and 90% humidity and the shower water was scalding. Mainly as a result of the owner's behavior, there is no way we will return to the Lookout Inn.
