Holiday review by Mr. James Roe

Date of trip: 26/01/2019
Number of people: 2
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "All arrangements worked perfectly and were well tailored to our interests and requirements "
Tribes Service: "All good"
Guides: "All guides were very knowledgeable and good at finding birds etc and identifying them. Particularly Ronald at salva Verde and George at Monteverde "
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "In general all hotels and guides seemed very environmentally aware "


Chayote Lodge
Room was nice with amazing view over San Jose didn’t have long enough to do anything locally as pick up was 11.00 am the butterflies and humming birds were conspicuous by there absence
Hotel Belmar
Really nice hotel, lovely food and very friendly and helpful staff
Xandari Resort and Spa
Perfect for first night but we were a bit tired to appreciate it having taken four hours to get through immigration which was tough after a eleven hour flight.
Selva Verde Lodge
Our room was poor being on the corner of a block of four and all others in the block had to walk past our room which was difficult. There were better rooms nearer the river which would have been better. All made up for by the excellent guided walks. Food was ok breakfast good
Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge
Room was good clean and comfortable it was a bit regimented in terms of being summoned to dinner at 7.00 sharp and told what time to have breakfast but as the guides doubled up as doing everything maybe it was neccessary

Our Memories

"Early morning bird walk at Salva Verde and the visit to Curi Cancha reserve we’re special although we did not find the Quetsal bird but not for lack of trying."
