    Ok place to stay, but it aint no 'eco' lodge

    Don't be fooled into thinking this is an actual ecolodge; the operator doen't even believe in climate change. It looks like he is just leasing the lodge until he can get some development deals going. Maintenance doesn't appear to be a high priority. The food is good, yet expensive. There were lots of birds and the pool and gardens were nice.

    Owners offered outstanding service and help. The dining facilities are top notch at very affordable prices. The peacefulness and cleanliness of the villas are second to none. This place will not disappoint

    Would be beautiful if only...

    The location was good, and the managers were very pleasant and helpful. The room is in desperate need of an update! The bed was old, the linens were worn, no wifi, and the AC was very loud! The owners could easily update, and I'm not sure why they haven't. It wouldn't take much to make this place very comfortable!

    So this was my second time around Natuga and I found that the management changed which is a great improvement. New owners and very warm and customer oriented, always attentive to your needs. As they are taking over the place of course there is room for improvement, like cleanliness and a few details here and there but I totally understand you are catching up on this and the investment is huge. Bottom line, you'll feel welcome, the location is great, close to many attractions, a peaceful place to relax.

    Home away from home

    We booked 2 nights at Natuga Lodge and Eco Reserve and decided to stay a 3rd day. We loved the owners and their family and felt at home with our kids playing with theirs, great food, amazing scenery and location. We plan to return on our way back thru the Dominical/Pérez Zeledón area. Not a place to miss.... Pura,Vida Best Hummus and Falafel and homemade pizza you will ever try
