Río Magnolia Policies

Payment - Since our property is remote and filled by reservations only, a first night guarantee deposit is due immediately your reservation is confirmed. Full payment is required 30 days prior to reservation date. Payment can be made via PayPal as we do not accept credit cards directly.

Cancellation - A cancellation forfeits the first night deposit and if cancelled within 29 days or less prior to the arrival date, 100% of the reservation will be charged. ***

***Please note that this is our policy but in most cases we can change the dates in the case of illness or other unforeseen events. It is more difficult when we are fully booked and have had to turn away guests.

Children - Children over 6 years old have a great time at Rio Magnolia as do their parents. We have found that the Lodge is not suitable for very young children as we are located in the middle of a rainforest, on a steep hill with a deep pool. The Lodge is small offering our guests a tranquil and relaxing holiday

Holiday Seasons - During Christmas and New Years (December 20 to January 5), the minimum stay at the Lodge is 2 nights..
