The only reason I didn't give this place the highest score was because the rooms, although really clean, had just the basics. Then again, for that price, I was already being spoiled. True Swiss people say it's like being in Switzerland. The owner even built a small train that takes you to the top of the mountain to a revolving... More

We didn't actually stay overnight here, as it was a stop along our way to catch a ferry to end up in Montezuma Beach later that night. However, it is a place that I would consider staying at for a future visit to CR. It was such a cute place, of true Swiss architecture and style. We stopped in for... More

Frankly speaking, the first reason for us to choose Los Heroes was because of price. However, when we got there, we were shocked by its beauty! Sure the room is clean, comfortable, but the most important is the view of Los Heroes! 1) The view of Lake Arenal 2) The view of whole farm 3) The view of the Holy... More

Sooo peaceful, if what you look for is a runaway quiet and relax, is the perfect spot. The place is od but charming, with owners with good customer oriented service. The train is scary hehe, but fun! The food I had was very good (veil) the rest of dishes were simple and very abundant, but not bad. As a native... More

Large gorgeous hotel in the Swiss Style. Priced at $55/couple. This Swiss style lodge is the brainchild of one man and his wife, Franz and Silena Ulrich. $55 gets you a very nice breakfast with home made Swiss bread and jam,cocoa and lots more. The rooms are large and designed like a Swiss lodge. NO air cond but in this... More

Passing from Sarapiqui to Guanacaste, we stoped at this great place. Silena (the owner) welcomed us very kindly and we felt "at home". We were in depth briefed about all the many possible activities near the place. We enjoed the "hanging bridges" tour as well as the trip with the train (part of the hotel, price included in the rate... More

We got married on July 5, 2013 in the quaint chapel located on the property. I did a lot of research before we decided on this venue and location, through my research I found that unfortunately some of the wedding vendors in Costa Rica are over priced comparatively to the US. The owners of the hotel were so gracious and... More

A fantastic experience. The typical Swiss chalet construction, the railroad that takes you up to the church and then to the revolving restaurant that gives you 360 degree views on top of the mountain overlooking the lake, the bridges on the way, and the tunnels take you to the Swiss Alps. You would be in awe when you find out... More

My husband and I were heading towards Arenal and we decided to stop for some information regarding the area and it was the best thing we did. The owner (very personable) gave us excellent recommendations, discounts and drew us detailed maps. She is very knowledgeable about the area and gave great recommendations that made our trip outstanding. We ended up... More

We stayed in La Pequeña Helvetia for 2 nights and it was quite nice. Definitely the place was built exactly like a typical Swiss chalet that you would find in Swiss Alps valleys... So the decoration and limited mountainous comfort goes along... But fine when you know what to expect! ;-) however special award for the toilet seat, it was... More
