Best Hotels for Romantic Getaways or Relaxing
The Guayabo Lodge is a small, 31 room hotel and restaurant on the outskirts of Turrialba, Costa Rica with views of the Turrialba volcano. The hotel is surrounded by a large garden with a number of species of tropical birds, butterflies, monkeys, and sloths.
The rooms at Guayabo Lodge are private, large, and offer beautiful views of the Turrialba Valley. One thing we love about the rooms here are that they have no TVs. This is truly a hotel to come to if you want to unplug (you will still have wi-fi), and connect with your travel partners. The restaurant is excellent as well. The in-house chef prepares a variety of meals with fresh ingredients for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Hotel Casa Turire
At Hotel Casa Turire, you will be impressed from the moment you turn up the drive. The approach and architecture of this hotel were designed in the style of colonial plantations. The goal of Hotel Casa Turire is for you to feel at home, but pampered. And you will feel that way. This hotel has 20 staff for only 16 rooms. But don’t let the small size fool you, Hotel Casa Turire has a gourmet menu, full bars, and luxurious rooms.
Once you’ve had enough being pampered in your room, you can enjoy horseback riding, lounging by the pool, visiting Guayabo historical site, paddling on Lake Angostura and much more. Hotel Casa Turire can also be a beautiful backdrop for a destination wedding. The gardens, wildlife, and architecture will provide a unique and romantic destination.
Best Hotel for Dog Lovers
Turrialtico Lodge is so unique, it gets its own category. When we first walked up to the counter we were greeted by the biggest, friendliest yellow lab we have ever met. After looking around we saw six or seven more dogs and found out that along with a beautiful hotel, Turrialtico Lodge is also a lab rescue and they have placed several in forever homes. You’ll have plenty of petting and companions wherever you go at Turrialtico.
The hotel itself has incredible rooms with jungle, valley, and Turrialba Volcano views. The large restaurant can seat up to 150 guests (perfect for a large wedding), and serves a first class menu any time of day. Just a few minutes outside of Turrialba proper, you’ll feel remote, but not removed. Turrialtico Lodge is a great central destination for several activities, including rafting, canyoning, and hikes to the nearby waterfall.
