We spent three nights at Tree Houses. As others have stated, I wished we'd stayed longer. The accomodations are truly unique and beautiful. The hosts, well there aren't words enough to express how wonderful and accomodating they really are. The included breakfast was phenomenal each day, we all enjoyed. We did the night walk with the security guard and it...

We are so pleased that you all enjoyed your time, Leeanne. We are fortunate to have Rolando and Efren guiding people through the rain forest at night, and it is a highlight of people's stay seeing what moves around in the dark. Thank you so much for coming to stay with us and we hope to see you all down...

We spent 3 nights at the tree houses hotel. I am SO happy we stayed here then directly in La Fortuna, which is more touristy and a lot more going on. The tree houses is so quiet and relaxing. The grounds are very well maintained and the mangers are extremely accommodating. I was very nervous to be staying here as...

We stayed in the "Sloth" treehouse. The place was spotless when we arrived and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. Each morning, our hosts dropped off a thermos of good coffee and put some plantain out to attract birds to our wrap-around porch. The breakfasts offered at the Rancho and included in the price of accommodation are fantastic,...

The Treehouses are amazing! We loved the feel of being in the canopy and walking the grounds was beautiful. We were lucky to do the night walk where we got to see lots of frogs and wildlife. Lucy and Mark are exceptional hosts and all the staff we met were friendly and helpful. We loved that we awoke at 6a.m....

If you're planning to visit the rain forest, this is an ABSOLUTE MUST!! The title is true. Each time we got on a shuttle or were dropped off at/from the Tree Houses Hotel, people would ask what it was; and when we explained they were immensely jealous, which is really only worth noting in a review. I'm normally a bit...

We were 2 couples and stayed in 2 different tree houses, Yiguirro and Agouti. The tree houses were beautiful, spotlessly clean & wonderfully maintained with beautiful wood! We stayed 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. We were only able to do the night time walk once; it was very interesting. We would have done it a second...

Absolutely amazing - there are about 8 rooms all of which are a treehouse. The treehouse are hidden around the private forest. Every night, if you want to, the security guard takes you on a night hike (an hour or two) around the private forest and you can see so much - frogs, snakes, spiders, sloths, sleeping birds etc. The...

We were amazed by this place! The tree house we stayed in was better than advertised. The managers Mark and Lucy were so helpful with advice, and the breakfast was excellent. We woke up to coffee delivered right to our porch. Not only that, but they put plantains on the bird stand and there were so many birds right there...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tree Houses Hotel is a bed and breakfast hotel conveniently located off the main road that runs through La Fortuna and around the Arenal Volcano. We are a short 25 minute drive to the high tourist area. People seek us out with that in mind, to be away from it all but close enough to enjoy all the fun adventure the La Fortuna, Arenal Volcano area has to offer.We have just 5 tree houses (each very private) on 8 acres and we are surrounded by a 70 acre wildlife refuge with a waterfall, pools to swim and a beautiful river. Each tree house features A/C, warm water showers, refrigerators and safes.There are few hotels like this in the world and none other in Costa Rica. There is something so very exciting about spending the night high in the forest canopy, wildlife all around you, safe and cozy in a tree house hotel in Costa Rica. ... more   less
