8/10 Very good

Not very comfortable
Staff were very friendly and the night frog walk was a great experience. But we didn’t love the rest of our stay. I knew the cabins were rustic, and that would have been fine if they were also comfortable and functional. Our mattress was old and uncomfortable, and should have been replaced a long time ago. Most of the bathroom was taken up by a huge soaking tub (though I’m not sure they even have hot water) but no counter space to set anything out. Also wasn’t impressed with the food at the restaurant. Breakfast was good but dinner was lacking and very slow, despite being the only ones at the restaurant. If I am ever back in the area, I’ll definitely be looking at other options.

This place is amazing! I originally chose Arenal Oasis as it is very environmentally concious lodging, but I had no idea it would was going to be so amazing!! We arrived late due to our flight being delayed so I called ahead to let the office know and they said no problem. The night guard would let us in. We arrived just before 10pm and the night guard was super nice and welcoming. Our lodge was so cute! Very clean and comfortable. We awoke the next morning to howler monkeys and the other amazing sounds of the jungle. We went down to the restaurant area and was amazed again! The restaurant is open air and the staff puts fruit out for birds and butterflies. You can watch them while you eat! The food is delicious but you have to be patient as it takes time. No problem at all, it's the Pura Vida way! We also did the night tour and was so amazed at all we saw. Our guide, Harley, was so knowledgeable, funny, and very accommodating to our 4 yr old nature enthusiast daughter. We saw so much! We will definitely return again. Such a wonderful place!

Cabins right into nature !!!
Excellent lodge with wooden cabins right into the forest. You hear the birds and at night you may be awaken by the sounds of howler monkeys !!! So so natural experience. Breakfast is very nice in a beautiful corner of the facility...nice gardens and somw hiking routes behind the cabins. Excellent accommodation for an introduction in Costa Rican nature! I would certainly come again. Highly recommended !

Great experience for getting in touch with the natural beauty of the surrounding jungle, birds, and wildlife. The night time frog tour through their property in the jungle was awesome. Jose David was our guide and did an excellent job of finding various frogs and other wildlife as we made our through their paths. His knowledge of the different species was equally amazing. Another highlight was watching the squirrels and a variety of birds eating the fruit laid out for them while we were eating our breakfast in the property breakfast area.

Very happy
Loved our stay. Better than what I expected. First, it is not one of those typical resort, so don't expect super luxurious rooms. It's an eco lodge. But it beat my expectations of an eco lodge. We were welcomed by a super friendly staff. Our cottage felt like we are inaide the rainforest (which we were). There was sufficient space between cottages. Rooms were super comfy...spacious bathroom with a huge bath tub. Breakfast was very healthy and tasty with view and sound of birds. There is a trail and tours inside the lodge but I did not experience them. The location was perfect...away from noise of town yet close to all locations (waterfall..less than 10mim drive. Arenal hike..15min drive tops). Less than 5mim drive to convenience store and restaurants. Very happy with our stay.

Beautiful grounds. Loved the night tour!! Staff was all very helpful and kind. Breakfast was good and watching the birds while eating was a wonderful bonus. Wish the fan in the room had been able to move the air better as the room was quite stuffy and warm during the day/evening. However, it was cool enough to sleep comfortably at night.
