My wife and I stayed here for one night but wished it could have been a week. The hotel grounds were beautiful and even included its own hiking trail in the forest. We have been wanting to see sloths on our trip but were unsuccessful until we asked Pip at check-in. Within 30 minutes, we had a personal guide take...

Loved every minute staying at Casitas Tenorio, fantastic setting in a beautiful part of Costa Rica where there are toucans, humming birds and howler monkeys in the back garden. Pippa and Donald are one of the most warmest and welcoming couples you'll ever meet and they'll make you feel right at home. The rooms were amazing with fantastic features including...

Pippa and family took us in when we were a bit lost and needed somewhere to stay. They were under construction at the time and closed to the public, but still agreed to give us a room. The cabin we stayed in was so gorgeous! A double bed each, a window in the shower right onto nature, and a veranda...

The host was very friendly. Our room was great. It's the first one when you enter the driveway. Our room/bungalow was clean and the bathroom was in great condition. It seems like they maintain the places very well. And we also got to see a cute sloth sleeping on the property.

Casitas Tenorio is an amazing gem. It's a quiet, exceptionally friendly and relaxing venue. Anyone looking to truly unwind and decompress should visit Casitas Tenorio. You will not find anyone on the planet friendlier than Donald and Pippa. They both went above and beyond to accommodate my wife and I. I can't wait to go back to this incredible place.

Pip&donald are like Eve&Adam and their place is a kind of Eden. It's a must go, the atmosphere is truely unique. The breakfast is delicious, and the view from the terrasse is just stunning. For the visit of the Tenorio park, ask for Marlon, one of the best guide I had during my stay in Costa Rica.

Pippa and Donald are the type of people you feel happy exist in the world. Genuine, kind, responsible and happy to share all their knowledge with you, we couldn't have loved Casitas Tenorio more. Located in the heart of the rainforest (seriously, you open the window and there are just trees, birds, monkeys, etc etc), you feel joyful to wake...
