TripAdvisor Rating


Nestled between mangrove forests and the calm lagoon waters of Santa Cruz, the Adventure Lodge provides the perfect mix of relaxation and excitement. The hotel offers a unique all-inclusive package that not only includes lodging and meals, but also incorporates several island excursions. Guests can choose from Santa Cruz hiking treks, kayak and snorkeling trips, Tortuga Bay outings, or a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station. Families will enjoy spacious accommodations and the casual dining restaurant. It’s not uncommon for sea lions to join guests on their private patios for breakfast, the animals enjoy soaking up the early-morning sun.

Wonderful, but some issues

by Cynthia R

This hotel is beautiful. We were lucky to have the Darwin Suite. All Windows, fabulous views. Staff are great, friendly and helpful. Wonderful to see all the animals and birds around the hotel. Great to have place for iguanas and sea lions to rest. Breakfast was a great show. Only a few problems which seem to me East to fix. One, the hotel is not as clean as it should be. Little things like the top of the garbage can in bathroom is dirty. They don't seem to change the little rugs used for wiping feet in the reception area. They were very dirty, never changed the 4 days we were there. Should be changed every day. Second, during the day, the reception desk was always empty unless they expected a. New guest. Always had to look for someone, also the people did not have much information about the town. These are small things that can be easily fixed. I would come back in a flash.

It was good but expected more

by mariamemec

This is not a cheap hotel so I honestly expected more. The room was big enough but not comfortable, breakfast was very simple and the people at the front desk was are polite but not go the extra mile. On the other hand, the food at the restaurant is really good and also the view is beautiful and the bar is well stocked. The hotel has a good location so you can go and have dinner somewhere else. I would definitely look for other options next time.
