“Phenomenal Stay in March, 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Special, unique stay in the Glade Treehouse. We were treated like royalty, loved the Happy hour with drinks and appetizers and desserts, and especially loved meeting Jen and Natalie who helped us so much. Their home felt like our home, the views of the Nicoya Peninsula and rainbows were exquisite, and Geoh was a special help to us. Love, everything about this place, the highlight of our trip. Jen deserves accolades for everything she has done to her B&B. Miss you Jen. Good luck and hope we will return again soon.

Room Tip: Loved the Glade, private with forest view and awesome bed with netting (felt like a princess) but al...

My husband and I stayed in the Cloud room (in the main lodge) at Hidden Canopy for two nights during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. The highest compliment that I can think to give to this hotel is that I felt like I was visiting a good friend's home. This hotel and it's grounds are gorgeous and unique. The atmosphere just exudes nature, coziness and warmth. Natalia and Jen were so friendly and welcoming. Jen talks to you as if you are a long-lost friend! Gio and the rest of the staff were so helpful and great! The room was beautiful and each room at the hotel has a different story and theme! Tea time/happy hour (5pm-6pm) was great with small plates and endless drinks! Breakfast was delicious (definitely try their french toast!)! We were able to order delivery in for dinner in the case that we didn't want to brave the bumpy road into town which was super convenient!
We took an amazing guided nature walk with Koky at the Curi-Cancha Wildlife Reserve and saw a sloth, a quetzel, howler monkeys, toucans, three-wattled bellbird and many many other birds! This guy is a bird whisperer! He can make a large variety of bird calls on top of being able to recognize the type of bird from the chirps they make in the wild! He has an uncanny ability to spot them from far away, too! In addition to his amazing knowledge of the wild, he took pictures of the many wild animals we saw through his telescope!
Highly recommend this hotel and walk!!

Our 3 night stay at Hidden Canopy was a highlight of our month in Costa Rica. While we considered staying in one of the tree houses, we opted for the Clouds room and were so glad we did. Its location provided not only a gorgeous view of the surrounding greenery, birds, and the Gulf of Nicoya in the distance, but easy access to the main house and the amazing staff. It's rare to find a property that has it all -- friendly and knowledgeable staff, delicious food and drink at breakfast and "tea time", wonderful views including rainbows in the morning and sunsets in the evening, comfortable and spacious rooms with lovely amenities, interesting fellow guests to share experiences with. We appreciated being able to order dinner from local restaurants so we didn't have to leave the lovely dining room where the staff set up our table with china and candles and served the food so it seemed like we were not eating "take out." (The three restaurants that deliver meals are some of the best in the area so it isn't really a sacrifice to have food brought in.)
We unfortunately were there when the owner Jen was away, but Natalia, Gio, and the rest of the staff made us feel so welcome. And the guides they have available are exceptional. My husband and I went on an excursion with Kokey to view birds in the cloud forest reserve. We were rewarded with sightings of quetzals and other amazingly colorful and interesting birds that would have been impossible for us to spot without the exceedingly trained eye of Kokey. He went above and beyond by taking photographs with my camera (some of the best of our trip) and after our official tour was over he took us on an extra drive to ensure we could see parrots and howler monkeys (which we did). In addition to his exceptional birding skills, he is an interesting and kind man who is a pleasure to spend time with.
Unfortunately, my husband was not feeling well during part of the time we were visiting. While this precluded some of our planned activities, we had the good fortune of this occurring while we were at a comfortable place with caring and helpful staff who went out of their way to ensure he was well taken care of. (The friendly house cats loved visiting with him and maybe that helped in his recovery.)
I can't say enough about our experience at Hidden Canopy and would encourage anyone traveling to the Monteverde area to make it a priority to book a stay there.

Total luxury in the jungle. We stayed in Rising Sun for 2 nights. Getting to it wasn't easy, but once there, amazing. We particularly enjoyed "Tea Time" at sunset with a glass of wine and tasty appetizer. Breakfast was delicious too. Natalia and Geoh were helpful and friendly. I would recommend staying here for privacy and relaxation.

This B&B is an absolutely wonderful way to enjoy eco-tourism in Costa Rica. The hotel is beautiful and the service is impeccable. We stayed in the Neverland tree house for 5 nights. The included breakfasts and tea times were wonderful and a great time to share daily experiences with fellow guests. Jenn, the owner, and her senior staff Natalia and Gio were always able to deal with all questions and requests for assistance in booking events and transport. The guide Koky does a wonderful job in spotting, identifying and explaining the behavior of the wildlife. His assistance with spotting scope and camera set up resulted in far better pictures than we could have hoped to produce ourselves.

My husband and I spent 3 nights of our honeymoon in the Glade treehouse in Febrauary, and it was my favorite part of our trip! The scenery was beautiful and the accommodations were just as wonderful. Glade was secluded, quite (except for the foraging coatis passing by) and perfect for us. The room was clean and spacious with lovely, unique decor. Very cozy.
We arrived after dark for check in and Jen and staff were genuinely happy to see us. I recommend renting a GPS along with your vehicle if at all possible and doing your best to arrive before dark. We are from a rural area with gravel roads which made us more comfortable driving in this area, but if you are more accustomed to paved roads and city driving, it may take time to get used to driving here. Also, the scenery along the drive is beautiful and not to be missed!
The staff was very warm and willing to please as the service here was excellent. I would recommend learning some basic Spanish if you do not speak it already. The staff is eager to speak English, and some do very well, but a little attempt at Spanish may go a long way.
The breakfasts were very good with tasty fresh fruit and eggs made to order among other baked goodies and sides. Also, evening tea time was so much fun and the sunset was breathtaking. The atmosphere at the main house was perfect; open to chatting with others or enjoying your own company. The wine, sangria and treats were very good as well.
During our visit we toured the Cafe San Luis farm. This was recommended by Jen and they were so flexible! The tour was very interesting and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and eager to share. It was a truly unique experience recommended to everyone! We also did the Original Canopy Zipline Tour and recommend it too! The rest of the time we relaxed and enjoyed our amazing surroundings. There were plenty of hiking and nature preserves to visit in the area as well, and the staff was very good at recommendations.
An additional note in regard to evening dinner - During tea time, we were asked our dinner plans. At this time we could let them know if we needed transportation or if we planned to order in. We chose to order in and tried all the available restaurants. Our meals were so good! Delivered to us hot and it was a very relaxed way to end the day.
Our overall experience was amazing. A great value too. I hope to come here and to the area again and would highly recommend Hidden Canopy!!

Room Tip: Book early! We had a pretty good selection and booked 4 months in advance.

Had a great stay at Hidden Canopy. Great vibe, great staff, great breakfast and beautiful rooms and common areas. Natalie and Jen were great at helping us set up activities and arranging for food to be brought in for dinner. (Morphos was great, btw.). We had a Clouds room and it was awesome...highly recommend it. I actually think it had a better view than the treehouse rooms. Lots of birds hang around the feeders outside, so it's a perfect choice for birders! And the best part was the "Tea Time"...great meeting the other guests for adult beverages in the evenings. It was a priority every day to be back by 5p so we would miss the great appetizers and drinks served every night. We especially enjoyed Gio who was very helpful with our bags, food drinks, etc., etc. Lots of cats here, so if you're not a cat person, you're probably not gonna be crazy about this place. Highly, highly recommended!!!!
