From the start, it was apparent that the service at this hotel was top notch. Daniel at the front desk answered all my questions promptly via email and was extremely helpful. The hotel itself is a 20-25 minute drive outside of La Fortuna, with a 5 minute drive off the main road that is very bumpy - I don't think... More

Hola Peachemma, We are so glad you enjoyed our Farm Tour! There are very few places in the world where you can enjoy nature, the importance of farming in a sustainable manner and tasting rambutans fresh from the tree and learning a lot - you're right! Our company culture is based on service, quality educational tours and honesty, so we... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 days during the start of the rainy season in June. We stayed in a bungalow and for the first couple of days it was mostly only us two at the hotel, June is a very slow season for traveling in Costa Rica. The room was perfect, porch was great.

We stayed at FLNL for five nights in July and were so pleased with the experience. We were in family bungalow #7, which had two separate bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the other with two twins), plus a porch with an additional twin bed. There was a nice porch with a view of lovely plants and many birds... More

We stayed at Finca for 3 nights in July. I wanted my kids to experience Costa Rican Jungle lodge so I did extensive research. Not only Finca was rated #1 for specialty lodging in Arenal are but was the cheapest option for 4 of us. We got the family cabin, one of 3 cabins. As the previous reviewer mentioned, there... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teens spent 3 nights. Food is fantastic but a bit pricey compared to local places but you will get a healthy satisfying meal. The breakfast was fantastic!! The staff is very nice and helpful and the property is gorgeous and relaxing as you can enjoy the lookout tower, the pool, jaccuzi, spa or... More

Everything was great here: the room, food, pool, farm. The staff was incredibly helpful and informative, helping us to get transportation to local sites, etc. Location next to La Fortuna is great - lots to do around the area. Farm tour with Ishmael was unforgettable. He also came with us on tour of hanging bridges which helped us to see... More

I spent a few days at Finca Luna Nueva Lodge and was so happy and relaxed to amble around the farm, throwing lychees in to the hungry pigs, checking out their crops and seed garden and hanging out at the pool and hot tub for an afternoon cool down. The cabin was great and private and the food was fresh... More

The staff are excellent in keeping out of your business and creating the best food I have ever ate. The pizza was just amazing. It took hours for one guy to create a fire in the wood pizza oven to only bake a couple of pizza's. All of their ingredients come straight from the farm. Sure, there are going to... More

My experience at Finca Luna Nueva was equal parts education and relaxation. I traveled there with friends for a yoga retreat this April. I was immediately in awe of the natural beauty of of the resort grounds. Stepping off of the bus felt like I was stepping in to another world. Everything was beautiful, lush, fragrant, and breath taking. Four... More

I wanted to sleep in the rainforest, and chose this place for its NATURAL BEAUTY... I was not looking for luxury accommodations, a nightclub scene or 24/7 internet access. I wanted peace, quiet and nature, and I got it. I was completely OK with the critters and the sounds of nature, and in fact spent some time sleeping in the... More
