Best place to stay if you are in the Arenal /la Fortuna area. It’s brand new, great jacuzzi in every room. The rooms are big so is the bathroom. Good breakfast and great service. If you are lucky you can spot a sloth.

Property's Favourite Review
This is a must for everyone that is in love with nature, comfort, good service, jacuzzis and the pura vida state of mind. I was looking for something like this so bad to relax and, I sure did! Great sleep, delicious tico breakfast, best coffee ever 😋 and, did I mention the jacuzzi? The view I had while enjoying it makes the whole experience unreal. Specially because I had a sloth right in front of me 😍, the sound of a river that surrounds the property and lot’s of birds (I saw a bunch of toucans!) are priceless. Can’t wait to go back and bring someone with me next time!

Our family of four stayed two nights at this boutique hotel and had a very pleasant stay. Upon arrival we were greeted with a tropical welcome drink while we completed the registration process before we were shown to our room. The bungalows feel new and modern and each has a private hot tub just outside for guests to use. The bathroom was also very attractive with double sinks and a large walk-in shower with two shower heads. All of the hotel staff members were very friendly and helpful. They were able to help with reservations for zip lining that were not available online. The hotel was also able to provide a rollaway bed in our room, making our sleeping arrangements easier for our teenagers. We enjoyed seeing a toucan one morning along with a large variety of other tropical birds. Our waiter was so kind to point out the location of two sloths in the trees on the property. Breakfast was very good and served in an open air restaurant space near the pool. The only suggestion that I have for the hotel would be for them to install a sign near the main road. We used our gps to find the hotel, but were confused at first because it looked like the directions led down an alley between some residential properties. We went down that “alley” and found the open air lobby of the hotel, but a sign by the road would have helped!

Everything about Noah's forest was top notch, the location, the hotel, the staff and the food. The bungalows are so cute and well decorated. Super clean and an excellent value. It doesn't beat having your own hot tub and a nice outside seating area. The hotel provides free daily breakfast where you start with juice or coffee, a bowl of fruit and your choice of 4 entree options. The Costa Rican traditional breakfast is out of this world. There are no phones so you communicate with the staff via WhatsApp and it's so easy. The front desk was able to organize tours for us as well as ordering food/wine for delivery. Everyone who works here is so nice and helped to provide an out of this world experience.

New builded, great boutique hotel with really stylish interior design. Every bungalow has amazing jacuzzi where you can chill after trekking in the jungle. Really intimate atmosphere. Delicious breakfast - you have four different option to choose. Friendly staff. Amazing tropical garden when you can watch vary of birds. Highly recommended.
