Friends of ours recommended staying at this location. We were not disappointed. The rooms were very nice, clean with excellent showers. The views from the front porch is incredible. Dirk and his wife were outstanding host. They were a great source of information for the area. The food was also terrific. I would highly recommend!

Very comfortable lodge with nice balconies to view beautiful birds and flowers. Food was great and prepared by Dirk and his wife. Comfortable beds and pretty grounds with lots of beautiful birds and flowers. Can't wait to go again to this lodge.

Stayed two nights in the room near the kitchen. Gorgeous wood deck and interior walls, small, simple living, howler monkeys hooting in the morning from the trees, excellent chef dinners and breakfasts. Could hear neighbors a bit during evening (quiet once everyone was in their rooms) so not super private feeling, but peaceful and a stunning natural environment.

Quaint little lodge nestled in the trees. Exceptional breakfast and dinners prepared by a chef - fine cuisine. Accommodation was very comfortable, all rooms with private bath, great view of sunset over Lake Arenal. Wi-Fi available.

Dirk and Lisseth are wonderful hosts who welcomed us from the first to last moments. Very beautiful views. Dirk is an excellent chef who offered tasty food at all meals. They also assisted us as we planned the continuation of our Costa Rica journey.

As a starting point in Costa Rica, we just spent five nights at Ceiba Tree Lodge on the banks of Lake Arenal and enjoyed the remarkable and friendly hospitality of Dirk Roos, who patiently welcomes his guests at this clean, tidy and comfortable place. We strongly recommend this lodge for few nights' stay - Dirk himself is a professional cook...

Dinners as well as the complimentary breakfast are excellent, and Dirk can make a great gin and tonic if you ask for it. The ceiba tree is impressive, and the setting in general green and quiet, with a lake view. I enjoyed the troop of holler monkeys that wake guests up in the morning.

Wonderful place with amazing good food. Service was very friendly. The ceiba tree next to the lodge a major attraction. The location of the lodge is not very far from the lake and next village. Impressive panorama view with romantic sunrise and Sunday overview.

We enjoyed our stay at Ceiba Tree Lodge very much. The Lodge is situated in a tropical garden with a wonderful view at Lake Arenal. The manager Dirk is a nice host and an excellent cook. We recommend his 3 course menue.
