This place is incredible! Charming and quiet but then it's not a far distance from adventure if you want it. Great breakfast that's included and perfect travel and tours tips from Suzy and staff. Thank you Villa Decary for making our family trip to Costa Rica the best!

What a tropical paradise with beautiful views from the rooms and the breakfast room and deck. Olivia the mascot, loves people too. Suzy was so generous with her time in recommending things to do and also joined us for a drink at the Gingerbread House. Be sure to google Travel Costa Rica Now.com and watch the video so that you...

This hotel was booked for us though a travel agent who had had great success with other clients that had stayed there. It is in the most gorgeous location on Lake Arenal you can imagine. The view from our room and balcony was breathtaking. You are smack dab in a rain forest and nothing makes that clearer than toucans swooping... More

It is as nice as everyone says! Peaceful, beautiful, relaxed, and morning breakfasts are delicious. We would linger on the porch bird watching and taking in the view of Lake Arenal. Suzy and Dan are fantastic - they really care about each and every guest, and try to make your stay as perfect as possible with individualized plans for each... More

My partner and I spent 2 nights here on our tour of Costa Rica and can`t wait to go back. Suzy and Dan were gracious hosts and extremely helpful in suggesting things to do and see. Though not close to many of the attractions we wanted to do and see, I am still glad we stayed here. The view from... More

We came upon this B&B as the result as the result of a fender bender on the main road. The owners, both ex-pats, couldn't have been more cordial to our party while we waited for alternative transport. If you are into bird-watching or trekking this is an ideal location with beautiful views of Lake Arenal and the rain forest at... More

We’ve booked this hotel because of the many good reviews. Prior to arrival we asked Suzy to assist with the transportation and tour booking, she was very helpful and replied immediately. The transfer van was very old and we felt bruised by the time we arrived from the airport to the villa. The almost four hours drive can be hard... More

I rarely write reviews but needed to share my feelings about this incredible place. We just came back from five days a Villa Decary, which is an absolute paradise for the nature lovers. From the moment we arrived to the last minute we were charmed by this place. Absolute communion with the luxuriant and generous nature around. The views on... More
