4/10 Fair

The rooms were more rustic than we expected. Our door did not latch when closed. There were dead flys all over in the bathroom and on the window sills. No hot water in the shower!!! Person at front desk was not very friendly. Could not find a security guard or anyone in the middle of the night when we had an emergency !!!!

Quiet country stay close to the city
The lodge exterior is understated and the entrance through cattle pastures was almost easy to miss. However, the interior is very cool with a nice lodge vibe. Our room was very spacious overlooking the garden and the view was amazing. It can be chilly at night so the electric heater and extra blankets were appreciated. Very comfortable king bed. Close to the La Paz Waterfall Gardens so you can get an early start there before the crowds. Good breakfast and dining. Wonderful stay
