Very quiet small hotel tucked away on the hillside of Lake Arenal. Rooms were clean and the views were pretty. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and chill, this is the place for you. The bonus is it’s close to Nuevo Arenal and 30 min to La Fortuna. We had a wonderful stay.

We were welcomed by Dirk like family, such a friendly atmosphere from the moment we arrived to when we left. We had a beautiful room overlooking the lake and the sunset, just stunning. Very peaceful, quiet and private. We had dinner at the restaurant on the premises, excellent steak and very reasonably priced. I would have liked to have internet in the room but not a big deal as I had a local SIM card for my phone. Even if I hadn't had one wifi was available a few steps away. We are early risers, like 5:30 am or so, so we would have appreciated a coffee machine in the room instead of waiting until breakfast was served at 7:00. Again, all the positives far outweighed these comments.

Wonderful couple of days spent at the Ceiba Tree Lodge with our three teenage sons. It felt off the beaten track high in the hills, our rooms were on a gorgeous terrace perfect for early morning bird watching, we saw and heard all kinds of birdlife including about 5 toucans flying in convoy. Fabulous view of the lake from our cool hammocks. Dirk and Lisette are the perfect hosts, cooks and information givers. Delicious breakfast and supper too. Thanks for a great stay.
