“Lovely view but overall disappointing”
Reviewed 28 March 2019 for a stay in March 2019

Pros: great view to Arenal, many bedrooms, good restaurant within short walking distance, close to great activities (eg butterfly conservatory), pretty good privacy, satellite tv for kids, lots of fans (because no air conditioning)

Cons: poor concierge service (booked one service which worked out; unfortunately for other service we showed up and there was no reservation made), bad smell on main floor, mice feces on main floor bathroom and inadequate response from management and owner, owner seems to take no responsibility for management, cold poor (kids wouldn’t even swim in it)

“Nice house, challenging road to get there”
Reviewed 9 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The house is nice, and breakfast is included in the adjacent B&B, Nepenthe. The road to get here is challenging. You need a 4 wheel drive, IMO. The owners made sure we knew this. Sadly, the clouds never parted enough to see the volcano. Enjoyed our stay.

“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This is a spacious house with a well-maintained private pool. Excellent breakfasts are included at the Nepenthe bed and breakfast, whose property the house sits on. There is a completely stocked kitchen with full size appliances, including a dishwasher. The furniture both inside and out accommodates a large group. It is especially delightful to sit on the swinging chairs and watch the birds by the pool. The road up to El Castillo is rough but not more so than many around popular tourist areas elsewhere. There are a number of nearby attractions and it is not at all a big problem to drive back and forth to the La Fortuna area. This was my first experience in a rental house in CR. I would recommend asking about the functionality of included options. We had no WIFI for the three days that we were at Oropendola.
