Carlos and Werner are exceptional, warm and helpful hosts! We’d spent 3 nights in Nuevo Arenal, Werner and Carlos provided us with a lot of informative tips on activities - thank you again. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the communication with the hosts was quick and efficient. PLUS Carlos is a passionate cook and we had THE best breakfast in Costa Rica! We would love to come back some day!

This B & B is fabulous! We brought our family of six to stay for 20 days. We had a different delicious breakfast every morning- and each was tasty and unique. Carlos is a 5 star Chef! Local fruits & dishes that appealed to the entire family. Fresh squeezed fruit juices! Werner would explain all the ingredients and recipe details as he served us. All of the dining room table arrangements was beautifully set. Each group of guests was seated so not to feel crowded- and could then mingle in the shared spaces if they chose to. One could visit with other guests or stay a little more private if one would rather. I noticed that Werner and Carlos adapted to each guest with particular suggestions and ideas for their day. It wasn't one size fits all, rather figuring out the age and personality of each guest. Then our daily itinerary was built with the help of Werner- who quickly became in tune to each of our wish list. They both made phone calls, helped make reservations, gave suggestions and helped us make the best use of our time. The night jungle walk was a particular favorite of our kids. We saw snakes, frogs and even a tapir! The local guide was so knowledgeable. We each had our top wish list outings or experiences fulfilled (and even a few more we hadn't planned on!) A fantastic adventure day was the rappelling, water canyon and then river raft trip combination day! After that we went to the rope swing and ate dinner in Fortuna. The village is walkable from the B & B. We enjoyed every dinner out- many wonderful restaurants to choose from. Every meal out was good and reasonably priced. We also shopped at the grocery store for on the go meals and sandwiches. This is a great home base to explore daily trips to the Volcano area, hanging bridges, waterfalls, sloth park, hikes, and viewpoints. We also drove west to the ocean for a few days and then returned. The rooms are very attractive, extremely clean, and so many little details are taken care of. The beds and linens very comfortable. The entrance room and shared living room space was a joy to sit in and peruse maps and brochures to help us plan. The furnishings and art show impeccable taste. The grounds were a joy to wander through and reflect on the day. One could walk in any direction and have a nice wander. The lake is not far- and we visited with local residents there. The cemetery is very close and a unique property to walk through. The patio is amazing!!!!! I wish we had more time to just sit and enjoy it (on the next trip I am going to schedule a few more down days to sit and read, journal, play board games, and enjoy the view) Sunrises are amazing here and we were beyond lucky to have a few clear days and view the volcano in the distance! The daily rains were amazing and of course helped the green and luscious scenery become even more vibrant. I will visit here again- and can give my hope that you can visit here as well!

Carlos and Werner made us feel right at home in their beautiful house. The breakfast was superb as was the conversation and their local knowledge and recommendations. Their B&B is a best in class value and they are perfect hosts. If we ever find ourselves in Nueva Arenal again in need of a place to stay, we will definitely come back to Casa Donna Rosa B&B.

Everything was amazing! The location, accommodations, hospitality, and FOOD, were all great. Werner and Carlos are both personable and made our stay a wonderful experience. Wish we could take Carlos home with us as our personal chef. Werner was so helpful with suggestions of what to see, where to eat, translating, and getting us around. Just a great time there, with great people. The property is beautiful as well. Hopefully, all the rain we brought keeps the landscape lush. LOL.

Two more delightful men you could not meet. 4 of us had 2 rooms and each had a lovely balcony with view. The mellifluous birds were more than audible and the little town is walkable. Great dinner at La Moya. Werner and Carlos, incredible hosts w/ great suggestions on what to do. They made us our first Dutch Babies which threw big parties in our mouths!

We stayed at Casa Donna Rosa between April 27 and May 1. Prior to our stay, hosts Carlos and Werner made reservations for us at different locations such as Monteverde's zip lines, Rio Celeste waterfall and tubing, hanging bridges at Místico Park, kayaking at Lake Arenal and much more. We stayed in the large Banana room, which had a great balcony view of their patio and Lake Arenal. The location is sleepy, but after a day of rigorous climbing, hiking, kayaking, driving and tubing, it was a welcome respite. Nuevo Arenal has a couple of small restaurants, which are walking distance from the B&B. If you stay with Carlos and Werner, be sure to walk around their garden, which is full of fruit trees. Carlos also prepared tasty breakfast every morning.

Based on previous excellent reviews, I booked a stay at La Casa Donna Rosa during our recent trip to Arenal. Carlos and Werner are exceptional hosts and the kindest and most authentic humans you will ever meet. Their B&B is on a quiet street with a beautiful view of the lake. Communication with them prior to our arrival was superb and I was grateful for the excellent directions and info about the surrounding towns. Our room was in a separate building and was comfy and quiet. We arrived late, after a long day of canyoneering, and all we wanted was a couple of beers and a glass of wine and low and behold, they had both, which we enjoyed immensely! I loved sitting on the porch in the early morning listening to and watching the birds in the forest adjacent to the property. Carlos made us an incredible breakfast and later in the day, Werner spontaneously took us to see some property after I had expressed my intent to buy a place in Arenal. While our stay with them was short, it was sweet and charming. Last but not least, they recommended we have lunch at Tinajas on our way out of town and that was spectacular. We will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful few days at Casa Donna Rosa. Carlos and Werner are the ultimate hosts; welcoming, friendly, knowledgable, plus Carlos makes the most fantastic breakfasts. The B&B is beautifully decorated, our room (Mongo) was huge, luxurious, and has a lovely view into the gardens. In the trees to the back of the view, you'll regularly see a variety of birds. Back to the breakfasts. Carlos' breakfasts are inventive and delicious, accompanied by fruit juice and as much coffee as you like. Breakfast is served by the veranda, which has a gorgeous view over the lake. On the veranda, there are comfortable seats, including a swing seat, and a small pool, offering a relaxing setting to chill out and take in the sights and sounds of the surrounding nature. You're within a short and easy walk from Nuevo Arenal town, where there are a variety of restaurants to choose from. Plus, in 15 minutes or so, you can walk down to the lake, which is truly stunning. As mentioned, Carlos and Werner are extremely accommodating hosts. In fact, one of the days we were there, Werner planned and drove us to La Fortuna, taking in multiple stops, such as the Mistico Hanging Bridges and one of the hot springs by the volcano. Plus, he took us for lunch at a local restaurant. During the car journey, it was great to get to know Werner, chat about the area and learn interesting things about his life and Costa Rica in general. Thanks to Carlos and Werner for a wonderful stay. We would highly recommend Casa Donna Rosa!

Our home for one month - warm, welcoming, delicious! Carlos and Werner have created the ultimate B&B experience with only 5 rooms and truly personal service. Casa Donna Rosa is a perfect base from which to fold yourself into a warm community in the breezy hills of Costa Rica. The rhythms of a relaxing day: musical Village chimes at 6 am, noon, 6 pm, hummingbirds flitting over your chairs, flowers all around. When will The Arenal volcano break out of the morning clouds? Carlos and Werner initiate the day’s flow. Fresh coffee and warm milk on our porch before heading to the main house. The “promised” breakfast - a splendid surprise of fresh OJ, at least four cut-up fruits (a custard apple? WOW), and alternating sweet and savory main courses. Over the course of one month, never the same breakfast twice! Meeting fellow travelers enhances the whole experience. Your hosts are advisors, guides and friends - it is your day and you are ready: walk, read, birds, explore. Settle in, listen to the voices of nature, and enjoy!
