We LOVED our time at Heliconias Nature Lodge. It is such a beautiful lot, and the family that owns the business takes great pride in their resort. We loved that they offered lunch and dinner options for purchase, as the restaurants are few and far between in this area. We got to practice our Spanish with the owners, and they were willing to accommodate to our every need. The room was stunning, and exactly what I had hoped for in a treehouse room!

The hotel was very quaint and clean. This family owned hotel is a great place to stay and enjoy the volcano region. Oscar was a great help and check in and check out was seamless. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely authentic Costa Rican experience.

We stayed in one of the bungalows, but they also have small tree houses, which our 11 year old son really wanted to stay in. This is a small property with a few bungalows and tree houses. The bungalow was clean with air conditioning and an over head fan. They are basic with a small bathroom, kitchen sink and small fridge. Our unit had two double beds, which was fine for our family of three. There was a nice size television in our room with varied programming predominantly in Spanish. The breakfasts are complimentary and very good. There are 3 selections: a traditional Costa Rican breakfast, omelets, or pancakes. They also have meal service for lunch or dinner. The guacamole is fantastic!! The staff is what really made the stay excellent. Omar the owner and Oscar were tremendously helpful with directions and suggestions for tours and when to take them. Extraordinarily friendly people. The landscaping is lush and pretty. We saw lots of birds on the property. The property is about 17km outside of La Fortuna. If you are coming from Liberia you drive into La Fortuna make a right turn and go about 17km before you come to the property on the right. It not busy like in town, but quiet and felt very safe and private. They have wifi. We found it didn't work well in our room, but worked well from the dining area and pool area. If wifi is important ask for a room near the pool, that is where the router is located.
