we spent a couple nights at the treehouses when visiting the Arenal area. It was a really unique and fun place for the family and the actual houses, beds, and room were much nicer than I had expected. Mark and Lucy are very nice and helpful. I had mentioned that it was our oldest daughter's 13th birthday and we were greeted in our room with birthday cake, candles and napkins. how sweet was that!
The breakfasts were great and we really did not notice the traffic noise. We enjoyed an evening hike explanations of the the grounds, vegitation, and animals and enjoyed finding frogs.
The houses are much further outside of La Fortuna than I had realized. That is both good and bad as you can feel as though you are away from things but it does add travel time to activities (and added transport cost if you don't have a car).
The option for pizza delivery to the houses on the night of our arrival was wonderful - and tasted great for a reasonable price. Dinner our second night was a nice place within walking distance. Just beware that they do not take credit cards at the close restaurant. We enjoyed some local excursions and found that managing the local busses was pretty easy and got us from la fortuna to the treehouses without much issue and way cheaper than a taxi.
We would definately stay here again or recommend to others.
