Pleasant, dreamy, excellent vacation! Lis and Dirk care about their hotel and it shows. Imagine how you feel after a long day of fun activities. By request, Dirk cooks the most amazing meal while a sunset unravels in front of you.

Our 3 nights at Ceiba Tree lodge were fantastic. Great location to enjoy the area and nature. Sabrina and Milosh were very welcoming - breakfast and dinner both delicious. The grounds are gorgeous. We loved waking up every day!

We had a wonderful time at La Ceiba Tree Lodge from every aspects of its beauty and welcoming hosts. They served fine breakfast with a variety of health dishes and robust coffee. The manager is also a superb chef. Plan to have at least an evening meal at the lodge dining room.

Dirk and Lisbeth are wonderful hosts. They did everything to make our stay memorable. Dirk is a very good chef, and made interesting and tasty meals. He even adjusted his plans for dinner to suit our tastes. He and his family are extremely helpful without being intrusive or pushy. I would recommend their place wholeheartedly.

We enjoyed our stay at the Lodge as it was in a beautiful jungle setting with an impressive 500 year old tree. It was nice to sit on the porch in the evening enjoying the sounds of nature. The restaurant has seating for seven couples which made for a nice intimate atmosphere. Don't forget to let the host know in...

Beautiful place to retreat to in the late afternoon when back from visiting. Food was great - loved having breakfast with the lush greenery hugging the deck. We had dinner all 3 nights there as well and for $19 American it is a great deal. He makes the greatest soups for a first course! Yum. Very nice.
