So we ordered in a welldone stake and it was rare. So we ask it to be made welldone. Another 15min pass and the stake came back. Guess what?.. It was rare once again. Keep in mind this was for a small child who for the record was incredibly hungry. So we ask it to be put on the grill... More

You truly are paying for the location when you stay at the Tree House. My boyfriend and I wished that we had just eaten at the Tree House Cafe, instead of staying upstairs in the Hotel. The Bad: The room was noisy from the restaurant downstairs and the poorly structured windows in the room. The sliding doors to the balcony... More

The location of Hotel Tree House can't be beat -- it is directly in the centre of Santa Elena, and everything -- restaurants, tour offices, shops -- are less than a five minute walk away. The attached restaurant is terrific, and the design of the hotel and restaurant around a huge fig tree is lovely. The low cost is definitely... More

Ok, I'm traveling solo, and as you can suspect there are many wonderful hotels out of town. But this hotel is in the CENTER of town! They have a nice restaurant and bar... Nightly music yet all quiet at around 10:00pm if not sooner. A private room is $24.00 very neat and clean... I'm picky. Also grocery store Is 20... More

The restaurant was really good and the staff was very nice. The hotels location is in the middle of the town. The hotel Room nr. 1 has a very good view. The area is really good to make some Extreme activities in and Munch cheaper than Arenal.

Paid $24/night. Room and bathroom was clean, mattress a little uncomfortable but bearable (better than some). Think some of the reviews here are a bit unfair, it's good value for money. Recommend Flor's "Quiosco" across the road for breakfast or lunch... She opens at 5:30am!

The staff are two faced like a quarter. If you dont speak spanish it us very hard to communicate, the rooms are run down, tons of noise and difficult to sleep. The hotel is comparable to a rented room in a drug house. You get what you pay for.

Eight of us shared a room in this hotel to save on overall expense. Our room had 6 beds a couple of which were queen-size, most of which were twin beds. The room itself was nothing special, except the kids got a kick out of the towels shaped as swans and elephants. I couldn't tell if the lack of hot... More

We stayed at hotel tree house for 2 nights but where not impressed. To start with the good thing.. ..the location. It is in the middle of the village. So you can walk to shops, restaurants and supermarkets. The room is very basic and had no atmosphere. it was clean but that's all. There is a bar around the corner... More
