This rooms are actually separate cabins with no air conditioning but good ceiling fans. The shower is quite unusual with large windows to see outside. The grounds and pool and restaurant were well-kept and clean. Supposedly, there was wifi only in the lobby and restaurant but we were able to access it in our room. The food in the restaurant...

Wow, this is a really cool place. The individual cabins are very modern on the inside. The shower had large one-way windows. There is no air, but it is cool and there are two fans in ever room. No wi-fi in room, but free in the restaurant and lobby. In-room safe. The pool was very nice. Food was excellent. Watch... More

Okay where do I start? Let’s start with this place and everyone who works there is amazing. If you bear with me I will give you all the details.

Each "cabin" has a lovely covered porch area with living room type furniture and a hammock. Very relaxing. Wonderful dog who lives onsite - she likes to visit and follow people when they are walking around the property. Restaurant onsite and happy hour in the bar portion of the restaurant. Wifi in restaurant and check-in areas.

If you are going to be around Arenal Volcano area (La Fortuna) this is the place to go, away from the crowed of La Fortuna, surrounded by nature, quiet, and great for birding. Rooms are comfortable and big, some of them with AC some of the Cabanas do not have AC. You must be patient at the restaurant, not the... More

The Chachagua is on the list of the of 1,000 beautiful places to visit, and the Rainforest Hotel & Hacienda lived up to that billing. But the room amenities were lacking. Not the bells and whistles, as we had good Internet access, but the mundane. Not one towel bar was in the bathroom; towels draped over the shower stall wall... More

We had a fantastic experience here from beginning to end. The staff at front desk was courteous, helpful, and accommodating. The meals were great both in flavor and local traditional foods. The grounds were greatly maintained and well kept. It was a secret paradise lost in the Rain Forest. Above all that goes to the beyond amazing bird watching tour... More

This was our second trip to CR with our 3 children. Our first trip was to Tamarindo and we wanted our second trip to be more of a rainforest adventure.
