Monika, the owner, has created a miniature Eden while preserving a personalized experience that feels as if you "discovered" it. I agree with the glowing reviews on TA of Lucky Bug, but unlike so many other popular destinations, it does not cater to the large tourist buses or advertise with tacky signs all over the Arenal area trying to draw the crowds in. Instead, you will feel as if you are visiting family you haven't seen in awhile and are welcome into their home. However, the property is big enough that you have plenty of room to wander around and take in the tranquil beauty on your own. We stayed in the Sun Suite for 3 nights which was more than enough room for my husband, daughter and I, and we liked that we had our own kitchen. Waking up to the rainforest - howler monkeys, bird calls, occasional rain - was soul satisfaction. The breakfasts are hearty and the coffee is Costa Rican strong. Enjoy happy hour on the veranda while chatting with other guests. This is a place you come to rest and leave behind your agenda. We loved it so much that we booked our return trip already.
