Simply the most extraordinary place I’ve ever stayed. Was quite expensive so I can’t ssy that it was a good value but I would recommend to anyone looking for an unusual travel experience. Jenn, the owner, was terrific and went out of her way to make our birthday celebrations special


What can I say - Jen & hotel excellent


This place is amazing, I wish we spent more time here, it is absolutely stunning. Jen was wonderful and accommodating. I will return here. The room was amazing.


If i could give higher than a ten on this, I would. This place is incredible as well as the owner and their guide.


Such a special part of our holiday! Two nights is definitely enough for the region and the price. Treehouse is an awesome experience and the breakfast + tea time delicious. The night tour we booked through the hotel was amazing too!


Wonderful B&B style hotel. Excellent guide for nature tours, and the owner truly cares about her guest's experiences. Glade room was stunning.


This is an amazing hotel and such a friendly staff. The owner, Jenny, was just so friendly and accommodating. She really wanted to ensure you had a fabulous experience. The views are wonderful and the food was excellent. Santa Elena is a great small village to visit as well. Would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to friends.


What's not to love here!


Unbelievable place. Everything was perfect....


This place was wonderful and passed all our expectations. Jenn King was an excellent host, the staff were very friendly and attentive, and we were very happy with our stay.


delightful place. went out of their way to be helpful


We loved our Canopy Tree House. We loved Jennifer's Breakfast and Happy Hour. And she was able to arrange drivers to take us into town when we wanted to go.


Jen was excellent. Highly recommend anything with Koki the naturalist who works with Hidden Canopy


Very comfortable with friendly staff and some lovely touches ie sunset drinks. Tree houses very high quality build but interior design lacked charm.


Amazing place! Rooms were so nicely designed- you felt like you were in the trees!


Amazing hotel, only 6 private rooms. When we were there is poured non stop for 4 days with 100mph winds due to a local storm but was still awesome and highly recommended.


This place was off the charts FANTASTIC. Awesome food on Dec. 25 and the fireworks were very fun and festive. We loved Jen.


Jenny is an Amazing Hostess


Happy Hour each day was one of the highlights of our whole trip - such fun!!


This is a wonderful experience. The tree house (Neverland) was stunning and exceeded our expectations. The hanging bridges nearby was amazing rainforest. The meals were delicious, tea and drinks, hot chocolate were delicious in the cold weather. The owner was very friendly and met our every request. The million dollar views high above the rainforest was stunning.


Owner and the staff are excellent. Would return to this location in the future.


What an amazing place to call home! Getting to the hotel was a bit treacherous though. But once we were there Jen took great care of us.


This hotel and staff exceeded all expectations. I cannot imagine a more wonderful vacation experience!


The hotel was beautiful and the owners and staff were amazing. Great experience


This was our favorite place on the trip.


Jen was super accommodating. The dessert and breakfast she served was amazing. Room was great. BEST PLACE TO STAY!


Fabulous! The staff, the view, the location, the food! So special to surprise my daughter with birthday balloons and a cake and song! Very wonderful. slight issue with a squirrel trying to eat into our treehouse, but we told them in the morning and it was fixed when we returned from our days adventure.


This place is AMAZING! I am so glad that Gretchen suggested it. We had no idea what to expect and it exceeding any thoughts we might have had. Our son and I both took turns being sick so that took away from enjoying every moment. Jenn is great at giving help, advice, etc and was so helpful in our sickness. She helped in ordering in food, getting a taxi, and anything we needed. She is friendly and efficient. The food was amazing and we all loved tea time! This is a place that will be a favourite in our minds when we think of travel and we absolutely recommend it!!!


Beautiful hotel. Jane King is super organized and loves being a terrific hostess. Her staff, especially Gio are kind, informative and make the stay extra special. Cocktail hour is wonderful. Really enjoyed the Monteverde area.


What more can be said about this place. We very. Much appreciated that your agency was agreeable to us cancelling a booked guided bird trip so that we could depart on a trip a bit later in day, not missing breakfast which is a highlight of the day, but also allowing us to go out with Koke who is an amazing naturalist and birder.


An amazing experience to be hosted by Jenn and staff.


Great hotel !!


Unfortunately, it was blustery the entire time we were in Monteverde, but the essence of the hotel, the staff, Jen, and others staying there made the experience rather homey. My 19 year old nephew would have liked more adventure, but I respect Koki's decision that hikes were too dangerous....especially, after talking to a couple that went hiking and talked about how dangerous it was. They watched a tree fall right near them and had to go off the path (watching every step for dangerous animals). The hotel staff as so accommodating and recommended a wonderful(!) coffee/cocoa/sugar cane tour. And, the animals that we couldn't see in the wild, we were able to see behind glass at the frog museum and butterfly museum. I toured with your guidebook in hand and I must say tHat EVERY species that we saw, it was identified in your brochure!!!


Jen the owner was very pleasant, knowledgable and accommodating. A great fun happy hour/tea time. The staff really was really professional and friendly. Spectacular sunsets.


The BEST part of the trip. Excellent in every way.


Gorgeous setting for this super special experience.


This is a once in a lifetime experience. I will go back. Then it will be a twice in a lifetime experience and I'll be very lucky. Spectacular setting. Very attentive staff. Delicious breakfast. I will be saying that about every place we stayed.


Enjoyed this place so much!!!!! Would highly reccomend this location, Food was exceptional!!!! We were upgraded to a two bedroon two-story treehouse WOW!!!! Jen was a remarkable hostess!!!!!!!!!


Best place we've ever stayed. Jen and her staff are fantastic and provide superb customer service. The treehouses are stunning as are the property grounds. We can't wait to return.


Very unique accommodation with a gorgeous view, fabulous staff, owner spent time getting to know us and make fabulous recommendations for meals and excursions. Definitely making recommendations to friends and family to stay there.


This was the highlight of our trip. Absolutely wonderful


The best accommodation, excellent staff, service..Bravo!!


Jenn is the owner and creator and is very proud of her units, as she should be! Great family atmosphere! Be sure you make it up on cloudy days to see the rainbows!


Jen and her staff were amazing! I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for some peace, some adventure, and some great sangria!


Jenn was a wonderful hostess and her property is gorgeous. When we come back to CR we WILL be staying with her for a few nights.


Great experience. Great guide there.


The best place where we stayed in our 13 days in Costa Rica.
Very personalized care by Jennifer King and her staff, and she took time out of her schedule to spend with us in the evenings for Tea time.
Rivendell tree house was superb, with views all the way to the Gulf of Nicoya, expansive views of the cloud forest and the bedrooms nestled in the midst of the trees.
My son was sick on the day we arrived there and the staff took extra care of us and we did not have half the trouble that we may have encountered elsewhere.
Highly recommended!!!




I can't tell you how amazing this hotel was. We felt so welcomed the minute we arrived. Bags were taken care off, drinks were severed and staff made us feel very special. I especially liked the fact that tipping wasn't supposed to be done every time we went into the main house or every time staff came to our room. Jennifer said that if we wanted to leave a tip, we could leave it at the end. We left $140 for our three nights there and thought it was well worth it.


After the drive from La Fortuna this was an oasis and Jen and Alex and staff were nothing short of fantastic. Had no trouble complying with the house rules of daily cocktail and "eat dessert first". Room was the best we experienced throughout our stay and the bed was super comfortable. Liked the cool nights and breakfast was really nice. Owner Jen really made us feel at home. Would request to spend more time here in the future - a day to just relax and do as little as possible. We really enjoyed our stay here.


Best place of any we went to, the location was outstanding, the views were unlike anything I could have expected, Jen was the perfect host and I felt completely coddled. I've never had service so personal and personable. Never experienced anything like it, may never again!


This was the best place we stayed. It was amazing. Jenn and her staff were incredibly accommodating with everything down to the smallest detail. We would definitely stay here again.


Can't say enough good about this place. The loading was perfect, Jenn and her staff were beyond any expectations. We used Jenn's guides - Koky and Roy - and did a night tour as well as the cloud tour. I would always recommend these guides for knowledge and super nice people. We also did the San Luis Coffee tour which I found very interesting and well worth the trip. The roads are bumpy and rough but well worth all the trips.


far exceeded my expectations!!


The owner was very helpful with all requests.


all we can say is Fantastic place!


Jennifer was excellent and really had her act together as the proprietor of a hotel. She just seemed to have all the bases covered all the time. Only problem with room was that it had no closets, but we adjusted.


if I could rate this location higher than a 10 I would have, this was perfection!


Jen makes sure that the guests feel at home!


Great Great place. Jen and her staff are the best!!


This is the most special of special places. The view is great; the hummingbird feeders are great. The water flows and koi pond are peaceful. The staff is fantastic. The food is superb. But the best part is owner Jenn. She goes out of her way to make sure everything is just right. I highly recommend this. Each room is unique and our Rising Sun room was spacious.


Absolutely amazing place.


Jen and Hidden Canopy were fabulous! Night tour with Koki was amazing.
