This was one of the favorite places we stayed in Costa Rica. It's a small bed and breakfast with enormous, comfortable rooms. We stayed in room 1 on the first floor, which had two double beds and a very functional kitchen area with dishes for two. There is also a mini fridge and coffee maker (with coffee supplied!). The best... More

The price was very reasonable, great place to stay while checking out the area, the "ticos" operating the place were very kind and gentle, I would return over and over again!! The views and the upstairs room were even better.

Best way to end my 2 week trip to Costa Rica. Cabinas los tucanes was an incredible escape. My boyfriend and I were only planning on staying 1 night in El Castillo and 1 night in La Fortuna, but we liked the hotel so much that we decided to stay an extra night. The hotel was clean and the room... More

This place was great! It's basically a bed and breakfast with spacious, clean rooms. The views of the volcano are amazing. The triple room on the second floor has especially good views and a balcony that faces the volcano. The hostess was helpful with brainstorming things to do (hot springs, hikes, etc). We had the typical breakfast (fruit, rice, beans,... More

This is not a tourist hotel but rather a very comfortable place to stay while you check out the Lake Arenal area. The accommodations are excellent and roomy. Breakfast is a treat. The little town is very local and hence a fun experience. The price was very, very reasonable. As non-tourist as the place is, it was a highlight in... More

Outside the very touristic La Fortuna, El Castillo is a very little pueblo. At Las Tucanes, we almost lived with Fanny and his family and we like it! The room was big with a little kitchen. We can sat on our balcony and check at the Arenal volcano. The typical breakfast was include and we like it! In front of... More

This place was a great value. The roomw were clean, the woman who runs it really nice, and very accommodating. The apartments (more than rooms) have a coffee maker and sink, and are very spacious. The view fabulous and, best of all, the town of El Castillo is really laid back and much more quaint and off the beaten track... More

The rooms are very big and clean with separate bathrooms and shower and some kitchen facilities too; what I really loved during our... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night and wish we had been able to stay for significantly longer. The family running the cabins is extremely sweet and detail-oriented. The place is immaculate, affords an excellent view of Arenal Volcano (when not obscured by clouds), and gives you easy access to some of the tour offerings of El Castillo.
