8/10 Very Good

A little bit of close quarters, but beautiful view
The lodge was great, and everyone working there was fantastic. Breakfast was included and superb, and the view was wonderful. It felt a little cramped though, both that the room was quite small, as well as you're in a small space with a lot of other people. All of our windows were right onto the walkways, we could hear people going up and down the stairs all night and walking above us. The other amenities were great, but it was just a bit noisier than I would've liked.

Outstanding quaint comfortable lodge
The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was wonderful and we observed lots of wildlife right from our patio. The breakfast was great and the location was easy to get around to other adventures. We highly recommend the Cala Lodge.

Cala Lodge esta muy bueno!!!😄😄
We had a wonderful time and were able to see other accommodations during a pick up service… Pur friends and I liked Cala Lodge best because it was in the forest and away from downtown.

Rooms not what I expected. Pictures dont always tell the truth. could not fit more than two people in there if that they do have most amenities but no TV but very basic and small. The grounds are beautiful and the birdwatching is good if it’s not too windy or rainy. Breakfast was ok.
