How to describe such a wonderful stay. Started by a wonderful greeting and continued with the morning coffee on the porch, the wonderful breakfasts and the evening hikes. We felt at home the entire time. The tree houses were more than I expected. My family wished we had more time to stay here. Taking a shower "outside" was awesome. The... More

Had such an amazing time, went with another couple, the property is like no other. Secluded treehouses. Night hike on property with Rollando were unforgettable. Juan Carlos was great knowledge at the volcano and plant life. Mark and his wife couldn't have been nicer hosts. Homemade breakfast every day overlooking the birds and animals. Recommend this place 10/10 times.

Fun place to stay. Very private The huevos rancheros breakfast was so good. Got to see lots of monkeys, birds, other little creatures. Had a great time and they helped us plan some great excursions. Loved the waterfall horseback ride. Thanks.

We just returned from the most amazing four nights in the Yguirre tree house. Although it is a 40-minute drive from La Fortuna and the activities near Arenal Volcano, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. First off, Mark and Lucy, the managers, are the warmest, most wonderful hosts. Every email I sent before our trip was responded to within an... More

Our family of four spent 5 wonderful days at the Tree Houses Hotel and it wasn't long enough. It was the beginning of our 10 day family Costa Rican trip and our first time in CR.

I should say I visited last December and feel bad for just writing now. I visited with 3 other friends. Mark (the owner along with his wife Lucy) are the friendliest I have met. The whole staff was. They recommended a safe car rental (Trebol), no flats! Trebol even drove us to the hotel, which was 2 hours from San... More

Dani: Thank you so much for the wonderful words. Trebol does do an excellent job and we researched them extensively before we recommended them. Rolando and Efren do seem to have an extra sense for finding animals and frogs at night and really try their best to find as many things as possible on the night hikes. More

We were looking for somewhere unique to stay while in the Arenal area and my daughter and I read the incredible reviews of the tree house hotel. We were sold. Tripadvisor reviews never let us down. You must book early as there are only a few treehouses. We booked both the monkey and the hummingbird houses for our group of... More

Mark and Lucy provide a spectacular experience. The minute we arrived, we were greeted with a welcoming, helpful overview of the property. The tree house was very comfortable! The waterfall was a lovely hike. We loved the opportunity to watch the birds, toucans, sloths, and of course the family of monkeys! The morning breakfasts are a spectacular cuisine experience.

The Tree House Hotel was the first stop of our Costa Rica vacation and was a great way to kick off our trip. Mark and Lucy are the absolute best. Anything you need that will help you.

We stayed at the tree houses hotel as part of our honeymoon in Costa Rica last month. We loved this place! We stayed in the frog treehouse which was cozy and intimate and extremely comfortable. The bathroom is quite narrow, so larger people may wish to opt for a different treehouse, but for us it was more than fine !... More
