STOP comparing hotels and weighing your options and book Sao Vicente Lodge immediately. Unless you need the hustle and bustle of a city or town, you won't be disappointed!
This is perhaps my favorite accommodation I have ever stayed in. The view and sound from the ocean-facing rooms are spectacular. Every evening, after an adventure-packed day, I enjoyed a glass of wine staring out at the waves crashing against the volcanic rock cliffs below my balcony. If you happen to have a room without a view, the roof of the lodge offers even better views (360 views of the ocean and cliffs, countryside, and mountains) than the individual rooms so you won't miss out! This lodge is the ultimate in relaxation and peace.
The rooms come equipped with a small fridge, stove, sink, and dishes/silverware. Every morning I was greeted in my room by a lovely breakfast basket filled with warm rolls, meat and cheese, yogurt, juice, milk, and other delights. Joel and Lilia are incredibly warm and hospitable and helpful. They really went above and beyond to ensure my stay was perfect.
I will definitely be back!
