Beautifully situated overlooking lake arenal this b&b is ideally located for those wanting to explore the area. Your host Kees is of old school hospitality, and I mean this in the most positive way. A fountain of local knowledge and incredible make of the most lush breakfast. I can only recommend it!

Our travel agency had this completely wrong. There is nothing to do, not unless you drive more than 90 minutes - and then still, not much. If you like surfing, I can imagine this is the place to stay. But otherwise, please stay around La Fortuna or drive further to Monteverde. Although that drive is rather difficult due to the... More

The location is great, nice view on the lake and excellent opportunities for birding and day trips. The hosts are excellent, they provide very good service and a great breakfast, and if... More

This is an excellent location with a beautiful view of the Lake and the volcano. It was a nice break from the stifling heat on the coast with convenient access to Arenal and Monteverde. Kees is a very kind and accomodating host and his wife Griselda cooks up wonderful dishes of traditional Costa Rican food. It is a lovely and... More

A wonderful location overlooking Lake Arenal and Arenal volcano. The host Kees is wonderful and committed to simplicity. When I visited, he accommodated transportation and a tour to Monteverde for a reasonable price. He is very accommodating. I strongly recommend to use his services.

Kee's and Griselda have created a special little place here on lake arenal. The view is amazing and the service excellent. Kee's made cook to order breakfasts and the view while dinning in the "rancho" is awesome. The location made it easy to go around the lake to hot springs and the volcano and close enough to make a day... More

The owner Kees Voogd and his wife were a very pleasant surprise as we ran across their location. Kees could not be any more welcoming and the view of lake Arenal was amazing. Monte Terra's has four cabins in a bed and breakfast setup that fit our needs perfectly. If you are visiting the Arenal area of central Costa Rica... More

Monte Terras was a huge surprise for being such value for money. The accommodation was great: the food and service was excellent: and the views were even better. Being a part of a 14 man (and women) trekking group, the gardens and the general welcome by Kees (the owner) and his three dogs could not have been better. After a... More
