I made reservations to this place well in advance. So in the months prior to our vacation I sent many emails asking for various things. Mark was very prompt in aswering all my emails right away. He even helped me out with getting transportation from the airport to family members that were staying in a different hotel. Anything I asked... More

Stayed here 3 days in April/15. Rooms were Cozy and comfortable, showers were great, and fun!!! (outdoors with screens). Grounds (gated for privacy) were nice with lots of walking trails, and free night tours with local guide/security! Saw sloths and had a family of Howler Monkeys swing right by our tree house. The free breakfast every morning was fantastic with... More

We recently enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Tree Houses Hotel. While the accomodations were rustic, it was quite an experience! Mark and Lucy were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were delicious - far better than expected. We did great trips - hiking at Arenal and horseback riding at a thermal springs resort. We had one of the older, smaller... More

Family of four (two adults, two kids ages 7 and 10), a two night stay that we're wishing was twice as long. 1. Treehouse - Wow. Just...wow. Large room with two queens and a twin, waaaay up in the canopy. A walkaround deck with picnic table and rocking chairs and comfortable bathroom. We appreciated the fridge and safe in the... More

This was such a unique and wonderful experience. We arrived in the evening and everyone was so welcoming. We loved the private tree house and were thankful for the help with our bags and figuring out our tours. The treehouse was beautiful- nice beds and shower and amazing views all around. You really feel like you're in the middle of... More

Thank you very much for the kind words and we're so glad you enjoyed your time with us. We have just the seven tree houses for a reason: they each remain private, so they're not on top of one another. It was great to get to meet both of you and we hope to see you again in the future. More

We stayed three nights and were very happy with our stay. The staff was very accommodating, and it is clear that they take care to ensure a nice stay. We saw far more wildlife on premises than in other hikes in Costa Rica (Manuel Antonio or Arenal), via a (free) night hike guided by the night watchman, and another (free)... More

We stayed here 3 nights. Amazing walking paths through the jungle. Close to really good food. the messages in the jungle were unreal. Sloths and monkeys everywhere. Very cool place and we tell everyone about it.

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay where you can be in touch with nature, Tree Houses Hotel is for you. Unlike other resorts, you have your own "house" up in the trees and at a distance from the other houses, ensuring privacy. The tree houses are comfortable and clean and made from wood, inside and out.... More

What a wonderful & unique experience! Great hosts, great views from the porch, and not another guest in sight! We stayed in the Hummingbird House. They're not luxurious but are still well-appointed. I can't think of a single thing to complain about! We recommend without hesitation.
