"A Bit of Paradise in the Jungle"
We had a wonderful time relaxing at the Shawanda Lodge. We travelled with kids and grandparents, so we stayed in 2 lodges (9&10) side-by-side tucked into a manicured jungle. They each had great porches with hammocks. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms were different and interesting in design, and had the amenities we needed. The staff was incredibly helpful, especially AJ. He treated us to a passionate nighttime tour of the grounds and showed us a hidden gem. He also was knowledgable and helpful with things to do in the area, setting up rides to where we wanted to go, and getting us surf lessons. We ate dinner at the lodge every night because it was so delicious and easy after a day of adventure. We loved the costa rican food with a french flair. The dinner service was happy, easy to talk to, and shared interesting stories with us. They also had great ideas for meals. The pool was pretty and refreshing. We had a lovely time.
"Beautiful Grounds Rooms are Risky"
Our travel agent booked us three nights here because it does have a great location and amazing grounds including an ancient tree and a path to the beach. We were glad to be out of the bustle of Puerto Viejo yet near enough to visit too. The staff was super friendly too! The issue was with the room, beds and pillows which is kind of important. The first room were were given (6) was not clean and the sink and bathroom were rusted out with something weird on the walls. The bed was like my old pullout couch at home and the pillows felt like they were 10 years old. Most of the decor around the grounds needs some serious replacing to be honest. Breakfast was included and like almost everywhere we went in Costa Rica was delicious with sweet, fresh fruit an delicious eggs etc. We ate dinner there one night and it was pricey even if it had been in Boulder near where we live and was not quite worth the price with such great local places nearby (like Dona Bertas!). Great service again though! The manager put us in a MUCH better room (14) which had lovely tile work and a very nice bathroom but the same issue with the bedding. We checked out a day early and found a room at another local place so we could have one night's decent sleep before heading home.
"My favorite hotel experience - EVER!"
My boyfriend and I recently got back from a 6 night stay at Shawandha Lodge. The bungalows are as secluded as everyone describes - you feel like you're in your own little jungle paradise. You open the door of your bungalow and look out at lush greenery and cannot see anyone around. The architecture of the bungalows as well as the large restaurant is absolutely stunning. The photos here do not do it justice. We ate at the restaurant almost every night. The food is delicious, moderately priced, and the wait staff are the most genuinely friendly and engaging gentlemen I've ever met. Cocktails are delicious and can be served poolside, which is never a bad thing. The beautiful ambience and the great staff make this place truly unique and special. I have no doubt I will return in the near future to enjoy another stay here.
Not pleased at all. Stayed 3 nights and did not enjoy any of them. We were able to make the best of it and the beach across the street was excellent; but from check in to out the staff was awkward and not helpful most of the time. The howler monkeys make noise from 5am thru all day, which makes sleeping in the heat (no A/C) even worse.
"Amazing lodge and food!"
We stayed 3 nights at the hotel with our 2 children. We had an amazing bungalow with a huge terrace but no hamac ;-) The children loved the salted swimming pool in the evening and we enjoyed cocktails and food at the restaurant. The garden is amazing, and from one bungalow you cannot see the others such the vegetation is dense. You can hear monkeys screaming at sunset and sunrise, see animals in the garden...The owner is a French lady, very nice and who mixed French style cooking with costa Rican food, that leads to amazing recipes! We had the best breakfast ever, with super fruits, eggs etc. A bit less CR than usual, but so fresh. There is a private access to Chiquita beach, very nice especially if you want to see crabs on the way. If you want to have your laundry done, it is 15$ the bag (small black bag), and you have your clothes all clean and dry from the morning to the afternoon. We really appreciated it since after 3 days in Tortugero all cloths started to be a bit wetâ€¦ Definitely a place to go, very different from the atmosphere of surfer found in Puerto Viejo or Cahuita.
