Tree house paradis

Adorable accomodations, great staff.
We loved our time here. The pool has warm and cold sides, the grounds are immaculate, and the staff is exceptional. The included breakfast consists of 3 items with the option to buy other, more elaborate items like omelets. They grow their produce on-site which is great. The location is a bit remote, but they serve 3 meals a day and it won't be an issue if you've rented a car. Do yourself a favor and pay the extra few bucks to upgrade to a treehouse or "deluxe bungalow". Once we arrived to our standard bungalows, although they were lovely, we were filled with envy of those staying in deluxe bungalows with wrap-around windows in the trees! The staff couldn't be nicer and they helped us book all our excursions while there. Best, we paid for all excursions via the hotel at checkout so I avoided using my card in various places and for various transactions -- made me feel safer. The price of the excursions was the same as if I purchased via the individual company websites, too. We would happily stay here again.

Great family stay in lovely nature lodge!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The grounds are natural and lovely. Saw many birds including a Toucan, while enjoying a very nice breakfast. Dinner in the restaurant our first night was very tasty. Our room was spacious and comfortable- we loved the hammocks and view from our deluxe bungalow! Staff was friendly and helpful. A great base for exploring the fabulous La Fortuna area. We would definitely return!

Highly recommend Heliconias
They were very welcoming. The cabin was beautiful. The whole place was built in an eco-friendly way. We took an amazing chocolate class with a man named Ismael, and it really changed our perspective on chocolate and our way of living.
