We stayed at the Tree Houses hotel for two nights. We arrived at 6:30 pm, which we we got taken to task a bit for, but we were still able to make the night tour on the property. The tree houses are beautiful and just sitting in the wonderful rockers on the balcony is a relaxing experience. I was wonderful... More

Reviewed 14 April 2016

My family had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Tree Houses! I wish we had planned to spend more time, at least one more night and day. The accommodations were great, the forests surrounding our tree house were full of life! Breakfast was delicious in the morning and I really enjoyed having coffee delivered. The highlights were the night... More

I'm local and I can say that I have visited many hotels in La Fortuna but no one like Tree Houses Hotel. In my opinion, this is the best option near La Fortuna. Mark and Lucy are excellent hosts. Good job Tree Houses!

This place was a lot of fun and a great place to stay. It is nice and secluded with a really great trail down to the river and waterfall. We saw howler monkeys and endless colorful birds. Listening to the rain forest sing was magical. Rolando, one of the night watchman, does a free nighttime wild life walk. He graciously... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review and for the suggestions, Amy and Kevin. We try to tell people about the difficulty of the hikes, and the Rio Celeste is a moderate-plus hike. It was great to meet you and we hope to see you here again in the future. More

There's nothing I can say that hasn't been said in all the other reviews, but this place is fabulous! We stayed in Yiguirro which I think was the most secluded of the treehouses at the back of the property. Make sure you spend a day just hanging around the grounds and taking the trail down to the river - the... More

I cannot rant enough about how much I love this place. My fiancé and I love the outdoors. We are huge animal and nature lovers. Therefore this hotel was the perfect place for us. We stayed in the Guatusa treehouse for 4 nights (the entire time I was in Costa Rica.) It is absolutely gorgeous and private. It has a... More

This place was great. From the moment I contacted them via email, it was a nice experience. The staff, the breakfast, the tree houses: everything was fantastic. We went on the night walk and saw many fun nightly creatures we normally would have not seen on our own. They have a great trail on the grounds and we saw monkeys... More

Thank you Judy! Rolando and Efren really try to find interesting things that move at night in the jungle; there is always something new each night to see. So happy that you enjoyed the excursions, as we work with the best guides and outfitters in the region, who take the extra time to ensure you have a memorable experience. More

We stayed in the Sloth Treehouse, I loved the fact you can walk all the way round and sit on the porch watching the forest.We loved the trails and especially the moment we so the sloth, (helped by the staff) The sounds of the wildlife...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tree Houses Hotel is a bed and breakfast hotel conveniently located off the main road that runs through La Fortuna and around the Arenal Volcano. We are a short 25 minute drive to the high tourist area. People seek us out with that in mind, to be away from it all but close enough to enjoy all the fun adventure the La Fortuna, Arenal Volcano area has to offer.We have just 5 tree houses (each very private) on 8 acres and we are surrounded by a 70 acre wildlife refuge with a waterfall, pools to swim and a beautiful river. Each tree house features A/C, warm water showers, refrigerators and safes.There are few hotels like this in the world and none other in Costa Rica. There is something so very exciting about spending the night high in the forest canopy, wildlife all around you, safe and cozy in a tree house hotel in Costa Rica. ... more   less
