Our best experience is Costa Rica. Gert, the owner, is a very nice person. He provides good advices. His place is gorgeous. Enjoy the view, the amenities, the birds, the Ceiba tree... A pearl! PS: we found the price of the breakfast expensive ($9 per person).

We were lucky enough to get the last room at this hotel, the location is great provided you have wheels, it is serene and the rooms are super clean and comfortable. Our host could not have been more helpful and the service and breakfast were really great, would stay here again.

I gratefully stayed at the Ceiba Tree Lodge for one night after escaping a filthy hostel. Gerhard was very friendly and made me feel comfortable at the hotel. He showed me to my room which was immaculate and had access to the lovely deck which looks out to Lake Arenal. I felt the attention to detail at this hotel was... More

The Ceiba tree is exceptionnal and we had the opportunity to sit on the big balcony to enjoy the view of the lake also. Birds, flowers around, little dog, Bella were there to make our stay very...

Gerhard, the owner is extremly friendly and helpful. Breakfast with fresh fruits, eggs , bread, coffee, served a nice little restaurant in the garden. This is definetely one... More

My family (two adults, two children ages 2 and 4) had the pleasure of staying a night at Ceiba Tree Lodge while visiting Costa Rica last month. The view is indescribable and the host is warm and kind. My daughter was thrilled that our room had bunkbeds. In the morning we awoke to howler monkeys in the mind-blowing 500-year-old ceiba... More

I wouldn't normally give a bad review but I honestly wouldn't recommend this hotel. We didn't have a reservation and it was getting dark so we were pretty stuck on where to stay. We were glad to finally find a place but when we arrived we were absolutely starving and asked if it was possible to get any food (we'd... More

This is a beautiful place. I read the reviews and this lodge didn't let me down. Even thought the owners were out of town, Alan took great care of us. The breakfast was superb. The views of the lake and the amazing 500 year old tree were awesome. If I ever get back to Lake Arenal, I will definitely be... More

When I go to the Arenal area, I always stay at La Ceiba. It´s just one of those special, one of a kind places. It is well worth driving a little more, away from la Fortuna, to stay here. The rooms are comfortable, cozy, clean and large. Breakfast is great and generous. Guests can have their breakfast while sitting on... More
