This is a really special place -- a lodge, definitely off the beaten path, in the middle of the jungle. We stayed there over Easter with two families - 4 adults, 5 kids - and had an absolutely wonderful time. William, who manages the property, was a fantastic host, helping us plan our days and showing us around the large... More

This is a special place. It is not for everyone. Like a previous reviewer said, leave your American attitude at home and enjoy this Costa Rican experience. This is a rustic lodge, with the basics provided. However, the staff (William is the kind, most helpful and knowledgeable manager) are wonderful, the meals simple but fresh, authentic, ample. We ended up... More

We stayed here during valentines with our entire family, including our dog. Everyone loved it! It rained pretty much the entire time, but we were still able to enjoy many things. We loved hiking on the hotel's property down to the waterfall. It was steep and slippery in some places, but we were able to manage just fine and our... More

This place is awesome. Off the grid a bit, cultural immersion, excellent and gracious host named William who taught us so much about the jungle. It is rustic, it is communal. Don't expect luxury, expect the beauty of Costa Rica!!

We (a family of 4 with a 12yr old son and 10 yr old daughter) stayed for 3 magical nights. William was charming, friendly, polite, helpful and welcoming. Our room was clean and comfortable. We loved its rustic charm! The food was OUTSTANDING. We ate dinner and breakfast here every day and everyone loved it. We have 2 vegetarians in... More

My boyfriend and I love the nature. It was the perfect place for us. The view is incredible, the place is peaceful, the plants are crazy colourful and the animals are everywhere! we saw some beautiful frogs down to the river and a family of tucans, just chilling all day in front of the kitchen. Stunning. We also have been... More

I highly recommend this out of the way eco lodge. The staff are incredibly attentive and reliable. The grounds are beautiful and relaxing. William will go out of his way to take care of all of your needs. The meals are amazing. It's close to everything, but away from the busy-ness of Fortuna and Arenal. This is authentic Costa Rica....

My family of 5 including 2 small children stayed here for two nights, and loved our time here! I loved the remoteness of the eco lodge away from the bustling tourist center of La Fortuna. It's a virtual paradise for the eyes and mind, embedded deeply in the rainforest with beautiful decks, hammocks, sofas, swinging chairs looking out onto the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in the pineapple house for 3 days and really enjoyed our trip. William and Gerard were very accommodating, and William helped us out with local tours. If you do rent a car, I would strongly recommend one with 4wd because the roads are dirt. The property is lovely and the pool was clean. If you're... More
