We were disappointed with our stay here...granted Mark was very nice and helpful, but that did not make up for the fact that we paid $112 a night for the TINIEST "room" I have ever stayed in. First off the room was not even big enough for 1 average sized male and 1 small female to move around even remotely... More

Tree Houses is a unique setting that brings people closer to nature and is different from a typical hotel. Unfortunately, some people don't embrace the unique nature of being in a tree house and we are sorry that the guests did not enjoy their time here. The Toucan tree house is our coziest and most romantic tree house and countless... More

Mark and his wife did absolutely everything to make our stay as comfortable and as Costa Rican as possible. They are a great couple. I found the hotel online and emailed Mark right away.

We went to Costa Rica for the first time this past August. Our stay at Tree Houses was exactly what we'd hoped it would be. We did the volcano hike and the early morning birding tour-both were arranged for us through Tree Houses. We also hiked around the Tree Houses property. During our 3 day stay, we lucked out and...

My wife and I stayed at the Tree House for one week and enjoyed our time there. The Houses were just as advertised and all the reviews were spot on.

we spent a couple nights at the treehouses when visiting the Arenal area.

The Tree Houses hotel is located on an immaculate property near the Arenal Volcano. Our tree house was uniquely constructed and enjoyable. Mark and Lucy do a wonderful job managing the place and are genuinely good people. The breakfasts each morning were tasty and fun.

We always appreciate feedback and the opinions of our guests. Unfortunately, we cannot control the traffic flow past the Tree Houses. We do get traffic, but it is not constant or overwhelmingly loud. We have instituted a new reservation system where guests can now choose the tree house they would like to stay in. There are descriptions and pictures of... More

We stayed two nights at the Tree Houses Hotel during our Costa Rica trip. It was a great place to relax in the evening after a busy day and wake up to the sounds of nature.

It's a nice enough place to stay. Mark and Lucy are very pleasant and helpful hosts. However, in hindsight I think we would have stayed elsewhere.

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
