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

Thank you so much again for spending part of your honeymoon with us! Happyland is a great place and a favorite hangout for the local people of Santa Clara. They go out of their way to help our guests that go there for the big portions and good service. More

In 2010, my then 8 year old son and I stayed at the Tree Houses. We tried to stay again in 2013 after the birth of my second son but we were too late in planning and there was no availability. My 13 year old was adamant he had to experience the Tree House Hotel with his brother, so here... More

My family and I spent a few days in Arenal during our stay in Costa Rica. We spent three nights at the tree house hotel and had a wonderful time. For someone who hates "roughing it" and camping like myself, the treehouse is a fabulous sway to surround yourself with nature without sacrificing the comforts of a hotel. I stayed... More

As a family of four including two teenage sons we stayed at Tree Houses so that we could enjoy the experience of being right in the thick of the rainforest. We were not disappointed. We were in the Sloth Treehouse for 3 nights and it was our first place having arrived in Costa Rica. The location is easy to find... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the Frog and Sloth tree houses while we were in the Fortuna area on our drive from the west to east coasts.
