We had the most amazing week here! We were fortunate enough to spend 4 nights in the Pineapple House and two nights in the lodge. Amazing views, amazing rainforest, delicious food and the greatest hosts!

I booked this accommodation because it seemed out of the way and quiet. And it is. No one was around when we arrived, but we rang a bell and Willmar showed up on a bike and escorted us to our suite. The place is rustic. Our room was big with a new balcony looking over the jungle from a hammock....

A few friends and I came here expecting a relaxing place to stay, but found we were pleasantly surprised with how wonderful it was. It is a beautiful lodge, surrounded on all sides by a rain forest and with a great view of the Arenal volcano. The rooms were comfortable and perfect for the amount of time we spent in...

First of all, this place is not for everyone. However, if you are interested in being a part of the rainforest, this place is incredible. It is an ecolodge. It is not the Ritz. The people are kind and compassionate (some of the best we have ever met). They felt like family. The views of the rainforest are incredible. IT...

This is a beautiful place set amidst a tranquil rain forest setting. There is a nice hike on the property that leads to a small waterfall. The staff will offer to take you, but the hike can easily be done without a guide. Great food, fun dogs and wonderful flora to enjoy at the lodge. If you plan to stay...

I can't speak enough about this wonderful place! The staff were incredibly friendly, knowledgable, and informative. The property is about 20 acres of beautiful jungle. One of my favorite parts about my stay was lounging in the hammocks in the morning and at night listening to the incredible sounds of the jungle! My friends and I were initially going to...

The lodging, surrounding area, and the staff were amazing, it exceeded my expectations, which is why we stayed an extra night. The first 2 nights, we stayed in a lodge near the main building, it was very spacious with 4 beds and a nice bathroom. The food was delicious, breakfast was 7 dollars, and dinner was 15. The juices were...

We stayed at this lodge 4 nights last week and it was exactly what I expected and was looking for. Surrounded by nature, excellent hosts, and great meals!! The small pool near the kitchen was not full, but I had read about this prior to booking and their website stated it would be filled upon request - so I fully...
