We loved our stay.... the views, the grounds. It was amazing! We started each day with a wonderful breakfast - far exceeded our expectations and finished every day with a relaxing dinner at the The Pheonix.
Our group of 2 families stayed Mar 29 - April 2, 2019. The pictures of the view, grounds do not do this property justice. Yes, you will need to travel a bit on a dirt road up some steep terrain, but it is worth it. Lovely hosts and a great value for the $. Loads of great activities within reasonable drive. Be sure to ask for directions to hike to the hidden waterfall!
There were 6 of us (3 adults and 3 kids) and we had more than enough room. The view over Lake Arenal was gorgeous and the food was convenient and great - Juan in particular did a fantastic job. Nancy & Gordon (owners) were there too and great to speak with and were receptive to my wife’s comments about some of the wildlife that entered the place (primarily bugs) - this was perhaps the one draw back of being in the rainforest. Location was great in that we easily found local flavour but an easy trip to many of the great sights around La Fortuna. My son was ‘homesick’ for Vosta Rica when we got back. Thx G
The home smelled horrible, coming from downstairs bathroom. The place is also run down and built weird. The stairs and floors upstairs were all really slippery, and really loud, you could hear every step any of us took. The beds were uncomfortable, the light in master didn't work. The place wasn't very clean. There were some nice things, but the smell made none of it worth it. The view is amazing, the flowers and grounds were pretty and the staff was very nice. The pads on the outdoor swings were dirty, musty and worn out and the pool looks beat up, but it was too cold to swim anyway. The restaurant was not very good either. Breakfast was ok.
Huge House with great views
This house is big, with a generous kitchen (with dishwasher), a dining room table, bar and sitting area with a large flat-screen TV. 2 bedrooms overlooking Lake Arenal upstairs, as well as a bathroom and an open loft sleeping area. Downstairs there's another bedroom and a smaller bathroom. For me, the architecture of the house didn't really flow and it felt a bit convoluted. We were there for 2 days in December and it was overcast or raining, so the house felt a bit dark and gloomy. I'm sure it's much more enjoyable in the dryer season when you get to enjoy the pool too. I would absolutely recommend it then. Note that the drive up to the house is steep and rough.
We thoroughly enjoyed the great breakfast at Nephente's which is included in the price...you just walk a few steps down the stairs. We also tested the on site restaurant and can absolutely recommend it - great cocktails at great prices, delicious local food, also very reasonable prized, super friendly service.
Beautiful vacation spot!
We were so pleasantly surprised once we finally arrived! The house was perfect for the family, the view was awesome, the jungle, the howler monkeys and the birds were such great entertainment!
But most of all, the staff was so welcoming and helpful. Don’t miss the tasty complimentary breakfasts carefully prepared by Odili and Lichai. Then check in with Andrea and Jose who can help you set up incredible adventures zip-lining across the rain forest, hiking the Arenal volcano and relaxing in nearby thermal pools...all within 15-30 minutes. And then return for sunset beverages and dining at the on-site Phoenix restaurant with Juan, Louisa, Odili and Pio. (A special thanks to Juan for impromptu salsa lessons and sharing the Kentucky bourbon!).
The private location of Oropendola gave us a feeling of getting “off the grid” but still close enough to attractions. So glad we chose this over the more touristy spas and hotels!
