We just returned from a 12 day trip to Costa Rica and were very excited that we included the TREEHOUSES Hotel in our itineray. We arrived on our 3rd day after a stay in Arenal. We had read about the hotel on tripadvisor and thought it would be a great and unique experience. It was!
There are 3 tree houses on the property. We had the fortune of staying in one with a loft for the kids and a tree going up through the the room! It was a nice clean room with window severywhere and a charming wrap around porch with a table, chairs and a rocking chair . All made of beautiful Costa Rican wood. Raeann greeted us and told us about the property. We loved the experience. There is a wonderful hike through fruit groves to a waterfall and swimming area. The hike was amazing! We saw leafcutter ants - unbelievable - and pick fruit right from the trees! The kids swam in the cold water at the base of the falls. Breakfast was included and very good. We sat and chatted with Raeann and watched many, many birds. Raeann gave us helpful advise on where to go and how to get there. We had a lovely 'tico' dinner at a resturaunt called 'HappyLand." It was great! Definately local and friendly. Something we did not get at the Marriott Los Suenos. As a bonus my husband enjoyed trying to figure out how the hot/cold water system worked ~ one pipe and the pressure changes the temperature ~ pretty cool. I will admit that this hotel is not for everyone. As charming and uniquely beautiful as it is, it does creek and sway a bit and there are many, many sounds that can let your imagination run... but then again it is a treehouse! If your up for a unique experience with a nice host. We recommend this hotel. We loved our stay!
