Quaint little lodge nestled in the trees. Exceptional breakfast and dinners prepared by a chef - fine cuisine. Accommodation was very comfortable, all rooms with private bath, great view of sunset over Lake Arenal. Wi-Fi available.

Dirk and Lisseth are wonderful hosts who welcomed us from the first to last moments. Very beautiful views. Dirk is an excellent chef who offered tasty food at all meals. They also assisted us as we planned the continuation of our Costa Rica journey.

As a starting point in Costa Rica, we just spent five nights at Ceiba Tree Lodge on the banks of Lake Arenal and enjoyed the remarkable and friendly hospitality of Dirk Roos, who patiently welcomes his guests at this clean, tidy and comfortable place.

Perfect stay for visiting the surrounding! Nice view from the highly located lodge/roooms! In the middle of the nature, next of the Ceiba tree. Nice area to sit dry/ shadow with group, with Nice view over the Laguna Arenal

Dinners as well as the complimentary breakfast are excellent, and Dirk can make a great gin and tonic if you ask for it. The ceiba tree is impressive, and the setting in general green and quiet, with a lake view. I enjoyed the troop of holler monkeys that wake guests up in the morning.

Wonderful place with amazing good food. Service was very friendly. The ceiba tree next to the lodge a major attraction. The location of the lodge is not very far from the lake and next village. Impressive panorama view with romantic sunrise and Sunday overview.

We enjoyed our stay at Ceiba Tree Lodge very much. The Lodge is situated in a tropical garden with a wonderful view at Lake Arenal. The manager Dirk is a nice host and an excellent cook. We recommend his 3 course menue.

We travelled for thirteen days around Costa Rica, and this was the best of our accomodations. Waking up in the middle of the wilderness, enjoying those delicious breakfasts Dirk prepares, the slight rain that makes everything look sooooo green.... We really reccomend everybody to spend at least a couple of nights there. Plus, there is so much to see and...

This lodge is absolutely gorgeous! The garden is beautiful and the view over the lake is splendid. The huge Ceiba Tree is really special. Breakfast is very good and homemade. In the evening the host offers a very formidable menu that he cookes himself... awesome. Thank you for the wonderful stay.
