With that said, Lucy and staff were great as well! They all really went above and beyond. We really enjoyed our stay in the Tree Houses! The...

Me and my two teenage boys stayed here for 4 nights and we loved it! We used the transportation that they recommended to get from San Jose to here, and from there to Manuel Antonio and back to San Jose. People drive crazy and it was so nice to be able to relax and see the sights on the drive....

This is our 2nd time to Tree Houses, but 1st time with the kids. It was everything we remembered and exactly what we wanted our teenage kids to experience. The hosts make this place worth coming! The Tree Houses hotel is what a trip to the Costa Rica rainforest demands.

Mark and Lucy were first class. Tree houses were quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was the best of our entire Costa Rican Vacation. Honor system for drinks worked superbly. No better place to stay for a quiet jungle retreat but close to all the outdoor adventures. Muchas Gracias, Mark and Lucy!

Staying here for 5 nights was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. Mark and Lucy are gracious hosts, the breakfasts are delicious, the night hikes with Rolando are educational, the treehouses are comfortable, the wildlife is abundant, and the setting is perfect. We saw sloths, iguanas, toucans and many other beautiful birds from our treehouse while...

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tree Houses Hotel with our hosts Mark and Lucy! The rooms were very comfortable (including AC!). The breakfasts were delicious! Mark and Lucy have fantastic relationships with local providers of tourist activities, drawing on local families and experts for ziplining adventures and the full day excursion to Arenal with Juan Carlos. They...

Over and beyond what I was expecting. two couples stayed in the monkey tree house. It was clean with plenty of space. The deck was perfect for relaxing every night. The grounds were beautiful with lots of hiking trails. The waterfall and river hike is a must. Lots of birds and monkey noises. Breakfast and company every morning was perfect!...

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
