We stayed here a couple of weeks ago and loved it. It was very private. The room was a little musty, but it was the rainforest in the green season, so that's to be expected. You cant beat what you get for price. Its a short drive from downtown la fortuna, so you have access to anything you need. The... More

This small-scale hotel has a limited number of bungalows. It is situated in a big garden, which is very quiet. Bungalows are clean and have all basic comfort. The staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful/ The breakfast is basic (limited choice) but good.

Secluded cabin in the rainforest with comfortable beds and extremely beautiful surroundings make this place unique. The warm welcoming staff including the cooks, were also available for tours (night tour of frogs), and exploring the Arenal volcano area and more. The wildlife was fascinating to watch during the breakfast and dinner meals (which were very good, inexpensive and Tico Sabor!).... More

I am so happy and grateful that we stayed at Arenal Oasis in La Fortuna. Not only was it the best place we stayed at in all of Costa Rica, it was the staff that really made the difference. It's a real family feel, and as soon as you walk in there you feel welcome, at home. And on top... More

Coming from the touristic crowds in La Fortuna, Oasis lodge lives up to its name. It's a beautiful place with its own wild-life tracks. You sleep in nice, comfortable cabinas with ensuite bathroom. Everything is clean and cosy. Breakfast is included, and is served in the open air restaurant with birdfeeders all around. Nothing better than breakfast with woodpeckers and... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights and have no negative things to say about this place. It is run by a family and that gives it a little air of homeliness which is always good. The receptionist (assuming she was the or one of the owners) was amazing, her English is excellent and she is very friendly and always... More

We really enjoyed our time here. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I loved that there are only a handful of cabinas spread throughout the property. My kids loved exploring the trails and area around the cabin. Nice, quiet and peaceful. We had the two room villa which was more than enough for our family of four. We... More

At breakfast (that is very good) you are treated to birds coming in for fresh fruit, you have a front row seat to watch as you enjoy your food. Kind servers, and they watch the fruit, when it's near gone they set out more so all that come for breakfast can enjoy the birds there. The rooms were nice, but... More
