We spent 1 night in a room and the rest in the tent house. Everything about this property was immaculate and Gerard was a great host! I had some of the best nights of sleep in my whole trip here (and some really great hot showers). The sky is beautiful at night and it's very quiet and peaceful here. During... More

Owner was kind and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Felt extremely lucky to have stumbled upon this place. Owner will make a delicious breakfast with homemade marmelade and packed lunch for an small price. Wifi was a bit slow. Great place to relax! Highly recommended.

The room was clean, neat, quiet and ready for a family of 4. Hot water, electricity, clean towels and windows. A very modern place, in a wonderful country setting. The host was friendly and gave us plenty of information about the area and the park. The park was not far from the well signed El Sol Verde. We ended up... More

Our hosts, Gerard and Ingrid, warmly welcomed us to their lodge in the pouring 'liquid sunshine'. But this was just temporarily. First of all, rincon de la vieja is worth a visit. It wasn't on our list at first, but i'm very happy we came. Beautiful hikes and wonderful surroundings. El sol verde, with its 'happy eggs' for breakfast and... More

My partner Roger and I chose Rincon de la Vieja as a quieter alternative to Arenal and la Fortuna. We stayed two nights in one of the guest rooms (with private bath) at El Sol Verde and were delighted. Ingrid and Gerard were welcoming and friendly; the room was clean and comfortable; the breakfasts of happy eggs from their own... More

The place is really nice and the owners took the time to explain us everything that we could do in the area. The tenthouse were we stayed for 3 nights turned out to be a great low budget option near the Rincon de la Vieja national park. There is a very basic camping style kitchen available with a kitchen box... More

Lots of information was made available to us including local maps. the village has a great store where you can get supplies at 'normal' prices, no wine though!! Cold beer. Very clean shower and toilet block, outside kitchen made a welcome relief not to unpack our own stove, made for a easy departure morning. Great value for money, Recommend it... More

We traveled to the Rincon de la Vieja area with our two young children and stayed at El Sol Verde in the wooden tents for the weekend. Everything was great and the children loved the whole camping experience.
