    Our group booked 10 rooms and all the rooms were unique in it’s own way. The glass rooms were great Bc you have full view of the jungle. The deluxe is great Bc it’s roomier and has a dining table which was nice with kids. We like the treehouse rooms also but these rooms are very small. The owners/staff were very friendly and helpful. It’s a family run hotel so they were very nice. The swimming pool was very nice also. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want to be in nature.

    Stunnning treehouse

    The perfect place! Our room was up on a treehouse and it was stunning overlooking the jungle we saw tucans and all sorts of birds. This is a family run establishment and you feel at home right upon arrival. Alejandro makes sure you have everything you need and the breakfast is delicious, also 3 options to choose from American style or Costa Rican style, we tried both and it was homemade and organic. Definitely recommend it

    It’s less of a hotel,but more of a family compound with individual cabins. Our cabin had a non-working AC (wouldn’t turn on), rock hard beds, but otherwise it was OK.

    The Heliconias Nature Lodge is an excellent place to stay. Everything was very clean and the staff were very attentive to every detail. They made it feel like a true vacation. Also had many activities to do on site, but if you chose to leave they would help get an activity or tour set up. The food was amazing. I would absolutely stay here again if back in Costa Rica.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Heliconias Nature Lodge. The treehouse was magical. We loved having a cooked to order breakfast each morning that had four different options to choose from. We really felt like family during our stay and will most definitely be back.
