Little piece of paradise
What a wonderful place. Very rustic but stylish design. Comfortable beds, beautiful view from the balcony and loved the idea of a hammock in the room for chilling out. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. All staff were friendly and keen to help. The natural swimming pools were very unique and a great way to spend a few hours chilling out between hikes or kayaking nearby. Only negative is be prepared for a terrible road for the last 7km of driving to get there!

2/10 Poor

This eco lodge isn’t very eco or a lodge. It’s more of a resort located away from the town and anything around. You are completely dependent on the resort for everything, food, water, transportation and excursions all must be done through the resort and no one else. You feel trapped. Food was not very good and very limited selection, they run out a lot of the menu items. Was really looking forward to staying here and left one night early very disappointed. And no, they did not refund my last night nor did Expedia do anything to help. Would not stay again.

Altos the Cano Hondo is an amazing place in nature. We loved everything about or recent trip and we highly recommend it to anyone that is looking a different and off-the-beaten-track experiences. Excellent place.

10/10 Exceptional

This is a place to come and be at peace with nature. It is a two compound hotel, each run by a different administration (Paraiso vs. Alto), but share the 13 natural pools between them. There are no hotels, houses, buildings or any other construction around so you can really hear the crickets at night and see all the stars in the sky. Fridays and Saturdays they have a fire gathering that really allows you to enjoy a serine and wonderful peaceful time. There are only one restaurant per compound, and they have lots of times buffets which is not to my linking, but Altos allows you to choose a la carte also :-) The a la carte food is good and very reasonable pricing. I wouldn't take the all inclusive meals because you might decide to go on several excursions and eat else where, and I think it is just cheaper to pay at the end for what you really consume. For example, a package for me and my kid was USD208 just for the 3-day stay, but with meals, it was going to be USD510 but doing it by meal, it was USD324. We didn't eat all meals and sometimes when we did, we shared a plate or two. We met wonderful people from the first day and decided to eat together often and spent time in the excursions and pools. It was really a nice, one-with-nature time well spent. There are no thrills like live entertainment or a disco or anything like that. So if that is what you are looking for, this place is not for you. But you do have lots of wonderful ways to spend your time!

8/10 Very good

A nice hotel, tucked away from the world. Great tour options are available. The natural pools are beautiful, but very chilly and very loud.

6/10 Good

The pictures are accurate, this property is beautiful. It’s worth staying one night just to get the pictures and spend time in the natural pools. The place SEEMS natural and “ecofriendly” cause it’s all natural materials and no wifi or tv but they never really educate you on what makes it eco-friendly. The first day they give you a schedule for the restaurant (and there’s nothing NADA around so you have no choice), then they proceed to not follow the schedule at all and never inform you of any changes. Very confusing. The restaurant food tastes horrible, but as I said there’s NOTHING nearby. And they just keep adding things to your tab but never telling you the cost so on the last day you’re shocked. Lastly, this place is great for ADULTS but definitely challenging with little kids.
