We stayed at the Treehouse in August 2009. The hotel has only 7 rooms, on the top floor of a three story building with restaurants and tour offices (and a BIG tree) on the lower floors. Its quite a place. Very nice rooms. The tree is incredible, and the restaurants very interesting. Breakfast was great, lots of options, and incredible cappucino with monkeys, pigs and dragons created in the foam/coffee mix. The location is perfect. Right in the middle of town, with lots of eating and touring options handy. The rooms are big. They can sleep two couples comfortably.
The only downside is the noise. On our first night (sunday) there was a big festival outside with horses doing some fancy footwork, and then a (very good!) concert. It all ended at about 11pm, but we were all tired and managed to sleep through the concert which seemed to be inside our bedroom. As others have said, on the weekend there is a lot of noise late.
Still, a very nice place to stay and a great experience.
- 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
