We cannot recommend El Arbol Strongly enough. Marjolein and Jan are splendid hosts, friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. They are available 24/7 with answers to all questions and gave the best directions to and from our major destinations with detailed expanation!
The place was amazing. The rooms were spotless and enchanting. Bathrooms were top rated and you had views into the jungle from the showers. We felt very safe and greatly enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen. There were fans available and options such as air conditioning and laundry. The mosquito nets definitely saved us as well! The place has everything you could ever need. The rooms are about 2 stories high and sitting on your personal deck you have a great view of the trees and various jungle plants. We often saw butterflies and lizards in the mornings and even saw a couple of monkeys on the property. They also had a ton of information on booking tours and adventures in the area.
We enjoyed a luxurious massage(the best massage either my husband or I had ever had) under the canopy of the jungle, surrounded by the lovely aroma of exotic flowers and sounds of costa rica wildlife. You can also book yoga sessions in the privacy of your own treehouse.
Location-wise, it's very near Manzanillo and about 10 kilometers from Puerto Viejo and Cahuita is not too much further. Beautiful beaches and lots of snorkeling and you can even rent bikes and leave your car at El Arbol. Tons of options for wildlife, beach, sodas, restaurants, and nightlife all within 13 kilometers of El Arbol (We are already dreaming of the endless great seafood/dining options nearby and the wonderful chocolate croissants at Panpay!) El Arbol is Paradise in the jungle! It is really the place to be!
