Our family of 4 (9 and 11 year olds) stayed for two nights at the Treehouses. We selected the treehouses with the goal of creating a real Costa Rica adventure. It was great. The kids loved the treehouse and especially the loft with their own beds. The room was very comfortable. Despite heavy rain, the AC was able to keep... More

Our family of 4 (children 12 and 9) had a GREAT time in these treehouses. The hosts were fantastic; full of information and extremely helpful. The staff made amazing breakfasts and the house was always clean. Eating breakfast with the birds was icing to the cake! The waterfalls and pools were fun to swim in and it was a blast... More

I cannot say enough good things about the Tree Houses Hotel. Even though it is a bit inconvenient to the town of La Fortuna (30 minute drive and a $30 cab ride per way), I loved the seclusion away from the town. The staff, Mark and Lucy, were so courteous and helpful in finding tours, helping with wildlife spotting and... More

it was a novelty to stay in a tree house but i thought it was overpriced. the breakfast were very good and there is a trail on site to a small waterfall with swimming holes. the room was very basic, shades didn't cover windows so it got bright early, no screens on windows meant we keep them shut (bugs) and...

My wife and I stayed in the Sloth Tree House for 3 nights and thought it was amazing. The tree house was very clean and close to nature. We saw lots of howler moneys and tropical birds on our stay and there is a hiking trail and small waterfall right on the property! The breakfast was excellent and the hosts,... More

Great place! Owners are super friendly and helpful. Nice to have a tree house all to yourself! Clean, a/c, toilet, shower, sink, coffee maker, loft, wrap around deck with table and chairs. Beautiful gardens here and a cool walking trail to a small waterfall. Excellent restaurant nearby: Lomas del Mapache. Gated grounds. Your own parking right near your tree house.... More

I stayed 2 nights (last weekend of Nov 2010) in La Casa de Toucan. The managers Mark and Lucy, their 3 dogs Behuca, Mini-B and Sweetie, and their staff welcomed this female solo traveler into their family. They really pamper you. The property is beautifully maintained in that perfect manner of managed wilderness. The food is delicious. The hummingbirds are... More

For all you scouring TripAdvisor and other sites trying to find the perfect place to stay in the Arenal area, look no further. TreeHouses is the real deal if you're searching for a one of a kind experience in the rain forest. While no doubt it would be great to stay in a place with a great view of the... More

This is a great place to stay if you want to experience the wildlife of the jungle. The there are five tree houses and they give you a birds eye view of jungle life. The tree houses are even better than the pictures in the ads. They are cozy, clean and in perfect condition. Lucy and Mark, the managers of... More

My boyfriend and I took a trip to Costa Rica for 12 days and stayed in five different hotels (including Los Suenos resort), but the Tree Houses Hotel was our favorite! Mark and Lucy were incredible hosts and helped us navigate a great place to eat dinner when we arrived. The tree houses (we stayed in the monkey tree house)... More
