My family went to Costa Rica last week (March 2013) and our first 3 nights were in these tree houses. I asked my (adult) kids if they could change anything about our trip and they said they would have stayed in the tree houses longer. We stayed in the Toucan and The Yguirro tree houses. Both wonderful. But Mark and Lucy (managers) truly make your entire stay wonderful. It started with the excellent communication from them at the very start of my trip planning. They made excellent recommendations and let me modify them several times. The tours they helped me pick and then they booked them for us had terrific guides. The (free) night hike with Rolando (their night watchman) was the only time we saw a tree frog (the one on all the covers of the Costa Rica Travel books). He literally climbed into a tree 15 feet to get it for us to see. Lucy made us fresh bread for one of our excursions. They property is gorgeous. If you want a traditional, fancy, resort experience then don't stay here but then you are completely missing the point of going to Costa Rica any way! This tree house hotel is fun, different, exciting, and adventuresome....and you can even get massages if you want one. Thanks Mark and Lucy! Hope to come back soon.
