My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights. The young woman who helps at the office was very friendly and nice, made every attempt to make sure we were comfortable. Lucy was also great, tried to help me find a sloth (no luck though). We felt like we were inconveniencing Mark for some reason, maybe we just had an... More

My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights. When we arrived and checked in, we met the managers, Marc and Lucy. We also met one of the girls. Gosh, I can't remember her name (sorry, I'm really bad with names) and she spoke English very well. They were all welcoming. We got to our treehouse (Casa de Rana) and... More

We thought our kids would love to stay in a tree house and planned our whole trip around this place. If we were to do it over again, we would just skip the Arenal area, which was a bit too touristy for our taste. People at the hotel were very nice, but the Frog and Sloth houses were too close...

The tree house was a great experience for our family with 2 kids. Mark and Lucy greeted us as we arrived at 7:00 pm and settled us into our tree house quickly as the kids were tired. The girl slept in the loft and we slept on the main level- The Sloth Tree House. The porch wrapped around the deck.... More

Thank you so much for the kind words Joe! The fruit bats have always liked the Sloth and it's great to see them take off at dusk and come fluttering back at dawn. Thank you for letting Coquita go down to the waterfall with you; she loves the water and playing in it! More

Words cannot do this place justice. Treehouses are just as you see in the pictures. Service is 5*. Food is amazing. Do yourself a favour and book this now! You will have no regrets. Night tour was great. Saw quite a few animals and tree frogs.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a wonderful review, Tali! You're right, people seek us out to see more animals (and being high up in the trees is the perfect place to see more animals and birds) and to avoid the high tourism hub, where there are 100 hotels clustered. So glad you enjoyed the night... More

Just great!! Kids loved it and a real adventure. Stayed in the smallest one - the Frog tree house, and although small it was perfectly formed and so much fun. The night hikes were a particular highlight and just being in the treehouses was a terrific way to finish off our holiday in Costa Rica. Four toucans on our balcony... More
