"Don't believe the photos..."
Shawandha Lodge is in a state of disrepair and the management varied by the hour from clueless, to rude, to absent from the property entirely. The water at the lodge is not drinkable and they do not provide any potable water on site except for 2 100ml bottles per cabana per day. If we had not asked about the water we would have never known it was unsafe to drink. Water can be purchased from the restaurant after 4pm for a steep price. Luckily we had a car so we could travel to Puerto Viejo for supplies. Other guests were not so lucky and when the staff was rarely seen at the front desk an angry customer was yelling at them. To make matters worse, the electricity was out for an entire day while we stayed which cut off all water from the rooms which caused the toilet to break. The swimming pool was not chlorinated and full of algae and the waterfall appeared to have broken a long time ago. Accompanied by the many feral cats who harass guests at dinner, the overpriced and undercooked food, inability to get early breakfast (even though it says it is available on the website) and the office never being open or staffed, we had a pretty bad time there. It's like we paid $100+ per night to camp in the jungle.
We ate and strolled thru the property it's very nice and there is an old tree up during the walk. The staff was very nice and the property was very clean and manicured. There was always a nice place to sit.
"A Fading Beauty"
This hotel is hanging on to what must have been a wonderful hotel when first built; now, though, it is lacking in maintenance - chipped tiles, broken hinges and general wear and tear are taking its toll. A little TLC could go a long way to making this 5 stars again. The grounds are beautiful and the restaurant serves high quality food (although you pay for it). It's one of the few lodgings in the area, though, that offers its delicious free breakfast a clean swimming pool and has a restaurant on property.
We stayed last night in Room 11. Spacious with an interesting bathroom, down a couple of steps.The individual chalets are well set out in very lush grounds with lots of flowering plants. A 5 minute walk to the beach which is beautiful.
Lovely lodges in natural surroundings and we loved hearing the sounds of the birds and animals. Bedroom was rather dark even with lights on and bathrooms were downstairs which could be difficult to negotiate at night. Swimming pool seemed to be in total shade. We ate here once but the food was extremely expensive (unaffordable!) and although nice it was not worth the price. After that one evening we went a little way along the road and had a good meal, with more atmosphere at a considerably lower price.
