The photos cannot relay the beauty that is seen from Pie in the Sky 2!! My family spent seven nights leading up to Christmas at this beautiful location. We were located at the top of the hill overlooking Lake Arenal & Arenal Mountain. There are two other properties nearby - the one room bungalow and the larger house - all...

We stayed at the Pie in the Sky 2 associated with the Lodge. The view was beyond description. The AC worked well but the Wifi should not be relied on (tough if you need to work while there). The pool is very nice and the house is well stocked. Beautiful house and well represented by the photos on VRBO. I...

Myself and 5 others traveled to Costa Rica and had a great time thanks to Walter, Rasta, Nan, and Z at the Majestic Lodge. The other reviews are dead on. The views are amazing from Pie in the sky! From the landscape of the volcano to the lake, every shot looks like a postcard. Close to the zip line and...

What a great time we had at the Majestic! 7 of us had it all to ourselves and loved spending time with Walter, Rasta and Brian. The pizza and mozza sticks at Howlers were fantastic. Advisable to drive in daylight as driving anywhere in Costa Rica if you aren't used to it at night can be difficult. Really close to...

I do not recommend this property as the management is dishonest. We booked a trip here in April 2016, and one day prior to our trip we received an email that the property was over-booked and they could not honor our reservation. They offered us an inferior property, which we accepted because we had no choice. We decided to stay...

Incredible of lake Arenal and the volcano. We were the only guests staying in the pie in the sky so truly felt like our own private paradise. Beautiful pool and lush gardens. Well equipped room and a few minor hiccups taken care of immediately and graciously. Staff was great. Z - one of the owners- was helpful, kind, generous, with...

You cannot beat the views of Arenal lake and volcano at Pie in the Sky!! The quaint cabins up on the hill (owned and managed by Nancy, who also owns the Majestic Lodge, which is down the hill) are quiet, clean, and surrounded by beautiful rolling hills. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and also include a pool and yoga deck....

This is a value location at the booking prices. The Lodge is beautiful, clean, with wonderful views, a nice breakfast in the morning, and friendly staff. You do need a car which can handle dirt roads - nothing new in Costa Rica! We loved how quiet and tranquil this location is. There is very good hiking (without being too difficult),...

Would have been wonderful views unlawful weather. We were booked to stay in the guest house. When we arrived the person greeting us phoned Nancy and asked if we would rather stay in the self catering chalet which was normally more expensive. We agreed. It was a beautiful place but in hindsight would like to have stayed in the guest...
