We would be happy with the hotel - it is centrally located, steps from the bus stop, rooms and beds are clean and spacious, but they didn't have hot water in the shower (water didn't even begin to warm up, it was icy-cold). Staff doesn't speak English well enough to explain what exactly happened, but from what we could gather... More

This review is not for Hotel Tree House. As she mentions, at that time we did not have hot water, since then we refunded the money and this person went somewhere else, she seems to have had many problems at the other hotel and is posting a bad review on our hotel for problems she had at the other place.

I visited the Hotel Tree House during my first solo travel ever for my 30th birthday in September 2012 for 3 nights. I booked it through anywherecostarica.com only a day before my departure, which I highly recommend for travel in Costa Rica. It was very conveniently located in the heart of Santa Elena and the excursions I booked were all... More

It was a different experience. The room was comfortable. When the bar scene stopped it actually seemed louder. The wind blew all night. It was like sleeping in a tree house... It took a long time for hot water, and one of us had a cold shower waiting for the water to heat up...

Our party of 10 people spent one night at Hotel Tree House. This hotel is located conveniently in the center of town, on a very busy main street, surrounded by shopping and restaurants. Our room was spacious and clean for 3 of us. The bathroom was small but effecient. As the name implies, this hotel resembled a home in a... More

Stayed for two nights, and can say you get what you pay for. It is right in the middle of town on the main street so you do hear the street noise of cars which dies down in the later eve. I didnt hear any clubs. Room was clean, satelite tv and fan. Two double beds and very spacious. Free... More

Did not stay there, but ate there. However, that hotel is nice. Plus, the rooms were $25US which is unbelievable. If I knew of this place, definitely would have stayed. I looked at a room, it was clean roomy and light. Not a cheap motel feel. Definitely recommend it. Plus the staff were very courteous.

The hotel is good, with nice facilities, we actually had the balcony room, so had a pretty good view of the town. My major gripe is that the hotel states it has free wireless access. This is true, however access is dependent upon a code from the staff AND is only for 30 minutes. Not sure how ethical this is.... More

This is a nice place with clean rooms in a convenient location. This location has a cost. Loud clubs with rowdy patrons and an annoying car blaring adverts for some local club or something. The restaurant was quite good. The breakfast was among the best I've had at any hotel. But the noise was too much.

We really enjoyed the hotel and restaurant however I would recommend NOT staying in room number 1. This room is facing the road which at first seemed like a good idea but we could barely sleep it was so loud with the cars and people all night long. Maybe ask for a different room or just eat there. Cool place... More
