FYI: You definitely need your own wheels to stay at this hotel. 4x4 is HIGHLY recommended due to the un-paved roads. Located in the Arenal National Park, the Majestic Lodge is an open aired B&B offering great views of the rainforest and wildlife. It is a 15-20 minute drive to hiking trails, Sky Trek adventures (which is highly recommended for... More

We stayed at the Pie in the Sky home and cabin behind the Majestic Lodge and were really pleased with the location and accommodations. First, let me be clear--this is a lodge in the jungle, so don't expect the Ritz Carlton. But if you're looking for a place to get away from the crowds, be on your own, with incredible... More

Just spent 4 days at the Majestic Lodge with my family. I can't recommend this place enough. It's a great small B&B with great rooms and an even better owner, Nancy. Nancy helped us set up every activity we wanted to do using her experience and knowledge. All worked out great. The lodge is quiet, cozy with great breakfasts every... More

My family (two teenagers and one adult) stayed here with another family. It was delightful. We stayed in the large house. The views were amazing. You were close enough to the attractions at La Fortuna but it seemed very remote. There is even a small 'village' down the road with a Soda (diner) and small store. It was clean, beautiful... More

Come to the Majestic Lodge B and B and never want to leave! Attractive and comfortable accommodations come with friendly service, refreshing pool and hot tub, along with delicious breakfasts served while you listen to birdsong and enjoy stellar views of Arenal Lake and Arenal Volcano. Nancy's incredible care and charm, along with all of the hardworking staff, made us... More

You can trust Nancy, the concierge, to assist in making your time at Majestic Lodge or Pie in the Sky comfortable and utterly unforgettable. She suggested the best hot spring for our group (Tabacon is dreamy but at Baldi, the kids would have a better time) She made sure we got prompt medical attention when one of our group had... More

Absolutely great location! We are a family of 4 with 2 boys (8 and 10) and could not have had a better time. We rented the 2 bedroom home and were very pleased with it. Nancy was very helpful with booking a few excursions prior to our arrival. Everyone must try the Skytrek zipline - wow..... We will definitely return... More

Our party of four adults stayed in the 2-bedroom house located up the hill from the Majestic Lodge B&B. Gorgeous views of Arenal Volcano and Arenal Lake! The road and driveway were bumpy, but they were not too bad in our 4-wheel-drive vehicle. The staff were fantastic- Brian helped us immensely everyday, everyone was very professional and courteous. The private... More

My husband and I stayed at the Majestic Lodge for 3 nights. It is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location, with friendly staff and great breakfasts served on a covered deck overlooking Lake Arenal. The location is definitely a bit remote--about 30 minutes from La Fortuna. The dirt roads were not difficult to drive, but we ended up doing... More
