The Fruit Tree Garden Bromeliad Suite, hotel in Nuevo Arenal

Providing garden views, The Fruit Tree Garden Bromeliad Suite in Nuevo Arenal provides accommodations, water sports facilities, and a garden.

Ian was so welcoming to his lovely property that was a lush and well tended garden with a variety of beautiful plants and trees located with a nice lake view. He also cares for a goat, Philomena, and other birds and small animals. The upstairs apartment where we stayed was comfortable, spacious, well stocked. Some wonderful little extras, fresh flowers sprinkled throughout, wine and a large sitting porch with great breezes to view toucans and other cool birds! We so enjoyed Ian’s tour around his property and learned so much. Definitely a highlight of our 3 week trip.

    Not convenient for La Fortuna.

    Not convenient for La Fortuna. It was a 20 min windy road drive each way. Nuevo Arenal was really noisy with dirt bikes and cars driving through. City has little to offer as far as food and entertainment.

    The town is beautiful and located in a beautiful lush area.

    The town is beautiful and located in a beautiful lush area. There are cute little restaurants and sodas. The locals were very friendly. My only complaint would be that the restaurants and stores etc close too early. It was hard finding something to eat/drink later in the evening

    No power in the room the morning of our departure and no return call. Wine undrinkable. Bunk bed not for adults. Mattress very thin. One person cooking and cashiering for restaurant. Hope everything works because no one is coming. Claimed power outage but noticed it only affected our 2 units. Wiring looked suspect in our room.

    The road between Nuevo Arenal and the Arenal Volcano is...

    The road between Nuevo Arenal and the Arenal Volcano is gorgeous, true jungle scenery complete with lovely views and roadside animal encounters. The resort is 8 miles from town, but shares space with two other dining establishments as well as a quick shop for essentials. Spend a week, sign-up for some outdoor adventures, especially by visiting the Arenal Observatory Park and the Mystico Hanging Bridges naturalist tour. You'll have truly lived the Monteverde experience!

    The area is beautiful with mountain and lake views.

    The area is beautiful with mountain and lake views. People are very friendly. There are many great restaurants and eating spots to enjoy, including a brewery/restaurant on the lake. We would love to go back. You need to have a car to see this area of Costa Rica. Getting around was easy - the main roads are good, but the side roads are rough. We did take some drives into the "country", and saw some interesting areas and also great views. The climate was very comfortable - mostly in the 70's deg. F. We didn't near air conditioning in our rooms.

    Our accommodation at Agua Inn was excellent - great hosts, wonderful breakfasts. We ate at several local restaurants and enjoyed some great meals, including the local Costa Rica style tacos. Favourite places were The Gingerbread House restaurant, Moya's Place in Nuevo Arenal, and Lake Arenal Hotel and Brewery on the other side of the lake at Tilaran, where we ate lunch and tasted their beer and cocktails, Le Bistro at Hotel La Mansion on Rd 142, where we celebrated my husband's birthday - wonderful view of the lake from there. There are so many more good places to eat and enjoy a view - too many to list here. On one of our outings, we took the coffee and cocoa tour at Don Juan Tours, Monteverde. Four of us had our own tour guide, who was most excellent, and he led us through the gardens, demonstrated how to grind coffee beans and we drank the coffee. Each of us actually made our own chocolate, following his instructions from grinding the cocoa beans, to mixing in other ingredients to our liking. We also had hot cocoa. So fresh! They have a nice store there as well where you can purchase coffee beans and other souvenirs. I purchased the Peaberry Coffee Beans which are 100% pure coffee Arabica Costa Rican and some pottery espresso cups, just like the ones we were served coffee in during the tour. You definitely should rent a car if you are travelling to this area of Costa Rica - there is so much to see and do while there. It's easy to get around - the main roads are paved, but you can certainly find some very rough roads if you venture into the countryside, which we did, travelling up and down and around the mountains, taking in the full flavour of the area.

    Carlos and Werner are exceptional, warm and helpful hosts! We’d spent 3 nights in Nuevo Arenal, Werner and Carlos provided us with a lot of informative tips on activities - thank you again! The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the communication with the hosts was quick and efficient. PLUS Carlos is a passionate cook and we had THE best breakfast in Costa Rica! We would love to come back some day!

    We absolutely loved our 3 days/nights at the Gingerbread Restaurant and Hotel. Eyal is an amazing chef and his staff were all fantastic. Breakfast, dinner, drinks, and desert were all fabulous. We stayed in the Garden of Eden cottage/room. It was clean, comfy, and unique. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Costa Rica.

    Our stay in this hotel was amazing. The rooms were beyond our expectations. Everything was there from restaurant to swimming pool and even a hot pool. The surroundings were awesome. The restaurant very good and for those who want to eat a little cheaper there were restaurants in walking distance. The lake view was fantastic.

    Carlos and Werner were excellent hosts, and were a joy to talk with to learn more about the area, and they had lots of great restaurant recommendations. The view from our rooms, over the lake, was fantastic. And the breakfast from host Carlos was one of the best meals we had in Costa Rica. Highly recommend!

    The tropical garden at the bed and breakfast is delightful. We enjoyed Marita's wonderful breakfast as we gazed over beautiful foliage and bird-watched. The hosts gave excellent suggestions about area activities and provided a very helpful map. Watching the sunset from the nearby lake park was terrific.
