4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

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 steps away around the corner.... Even has a small Cantina. Good coffee!
Great for getting drinks and snacks and bring back to your room.
Nice to be able to walk around town... About 10:00 min. Walk.
Enjoyed the music from my room and being able to get a bite one floor down, has it's advantages.

Room Tip: All room are on the third floor. They all seem acceptable and clean for the price!

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 water was because of the hotel, or because I was one of the last in our group to get a shower. The night we stayed there were residual winds from a hurricane off the coast and at times it sounded like the roof was going to blow right off of the building, but that wasn't really the fault of the hotel.

The room did have free wifi, which was good as most of us had wifi-enabled devices so that kept everyone happy and quiet in the room.

The best part of this hotel is not the rooms. It's the ambiance of the hotel itself and the restaurant. There is a tree growing literally in the middle of the building with the check-in being on the 1st floor, the restaurant on the 2nd floor and the rooms up on the 3rd. When you are dining in the restaurant, it is open to the tree and a balcony that overlooks the little village. The food was very good, and at periods during the day, a small mariachi-style band would play. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

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 which was really loud till late at night. The staff of the hotel is not really friendly, helpfull and don't give you a welcome feeling. The restaurant is nice decorated and don't think the rooms will be the same. But the prices are overrated and the staff is not friendly aswell.

we paid $50 and we don't think that is worth it!
