More than Amazing

Reviewed 17 november, 2021

2 Year Wedding Anniversary vacation with my Wife. We were looking for relaxation and being able to disconnect from everyday stresses, to just enjoy our time and recharge. This Resort was the perfect Answer to what we needed.

I regret leaving this slice of paradise!!

Reviewed 9 november, 2021

If you are looking for a place to stay in Costa Rica look no further and book this place!! It’s pure magic. The birding is absolutely amazing, the island has zero people on it, and there are so many activities to enjoy. Playa Cativo feels like a giant vacation packed into one place. We absolutely loved the staff and considered them as friends in far away places by the end of our trip. We left here to go to another place after three days and it was the biggest regret I have during this trip. I wish we finished out our trip here. You can see at minimum 50 species of birds from your room and the eating area effortlessly just bring a good pair of binoculars! If you don’t have them, don’t panic because they have an amazing scope you can use on the deck. The only reason I say to bring your own binoculars is so you can run around in all of the different locations of the lodge and see everything! We saw toucan, macaw, parrots, countless hummingbirds and tanagers. Their gardens are incredible and will make your jaw drop with some of the neat creatures you can find within. Edwin, Maria, Kendal, Oliver, Louise, and the gentleman manager (We can’t remember his name) we’re the sweetest, most caring people we came across in Costa Rica. All of these people need a huge raise because they made this trip for us. Our honeymoon dinner was the most beautiful and amazing night of our stay. The effort Kendall and Oliver put in was more than we could ask for. The boat ride in is spectacular and the food here is the best food we had in all of Costa Rica. We hope we can eventually come back to this place and stay longer because three days wasn’t enough. Who am I kidding, I could live on this island with these fabulous people. Until we meet again my friends, Destiny & Herb Butler

Playa Cativo Lodge exceeded our expectations. Where shall I start....; First the friendly greeting and pick up at Golfito airstrip. Then we were surprised by the greetings of friendly playing dolphins during our boat ride to the lodge. When we arrived at the lodge we received a warm welcome by the general manager and staff. We did not only experience an abundance of nature, peace, and wildlife, but also of service, great food (the best) and friendliness. The whole staff is very friendly and very thoughtful. I remember all the names of the ones we’ve spoken with. If you are there definitely try the “Walter thee” for an extra good night sleep 😊. The view from our suite was magical and we experienced the most beautiful sunset ever! The place is just magical. We love that the lodge is so excluded and off the beaten track. The location is just WOW! We will definitely go back to this place.

Few days in the paradise

The lodge is beautiful, the service is excellent, the staff are friendly. If you want to enjoy your life spend few days there. Go for kayaking, whale and dolphin whatching!. Strongly recommended for everyone.

5 Days in a little Paradise

Reviewed 4 october, 2021

Crossing the bay to the lodge from Puerto Juarez we were accompanied by spinner dolphins and a humpback couple with their calf - with no doubt a lucky and fantastic start of our stay. The lodge is beautifully nested into nature and makes it super easy to enjoy it with organized tours with excellent guides or on your own with smaller hikes through the surrounding rain forest. You will wake up in the morning by the sound of howler monkeys and have no trouble seeing all kind of different animals, birds and reptiles. Search for the most famous animals in Costa Rica we seen them almost all near by or during the mangrove kayak tour. Accommodation, kitchen and staff are great and make it easy to start and end the day. Food is excellent - bottom line a 100% recommendation if not a must!
