We offer 2 rooms in the main house, each with a separate entrance, private bath, queen size bed, a small refrigerator and coffeemaker. These rooms open to a large veranda with a beautiful view of Lake Arenal, Arenal volcano and our swimming pool.
•Nepenthe Bed and Breakfast is Beautiful piece of paradise located in the little town of El Castillo of La Fortuna in Costa Rica. We are 35 minutes traveling west from La Fortuna downtown. Surrounded by the magical rain forest and exotic wild life (like howler monkeys and toucans) you can appreciate the magnificent Arenal Volcano and the Arenal Lake, enjoy beautiful sunsets from our infinity edge pool or relax in the Jacuzzi or with a Massage in The Blue Lagoon Spa.
** An advice: because of our location a bit remote up in the hills, renting a car is recommended (a 4WD will be better) as activities and scenic attractions are spread out. This is cheaper in comparison with pay taxi to go to restaurants, attractions or transport from the airport.
** Tres Cabras Restaurant at Nepenthe is located on the grounds of Nepenthe and serve a daily prix fixe dinner menu with handmade food and fresh local ingredients.

Agustin was there everyday to answer questions and provide friendly service. Tres Cabras was pretty tasty, and highly recommended (you must go at least once, if not more although they don't change their prix fixe menu often). Breakfast each morning was authentic and filling as well.
We had booked the main house but we're instead given a small cabana at the end of a row of 4, below the main house. This worked to our advantage because we weren't connected to anyone and probably had more privacy but had to walk up the hill anytime we wanted to use the wifi.
Overall we were pleased with how secluded and "off the tourist path" Nepenthe was. The view was almost always beautiful (even with the rain clouds) and we enjoyed seeing the animals in the area and on the property. We did rent a 4WD SUV and so happy we did.
We tried to get messages at the on-site spa, with no luck. The business doesn't answer emails and even when the door was open we couldn't find anyone to talk to.
Enjoyed everything about Nepenthe, except maybe the horrible roads leading to it. The room was comfortable with a lovely private wrap around deck to do yoga on. It rained at night during our trip so we were happy to be able to eat at the delicious tres Cabras restaurant. Appetizer, entree and wine for $20, this was by far the best food we had in Costa Rica. The owners were very friendly and played great music. The restaurant has a romantic feel with string lights, open air but protected from the rain. We enjoyed a nearby hike of Arenal Volcano and a day at the hot springs. Alejandro was very helpful in giving us tips and the breakfast each morning was a treat. Would definitely recommend and stay here again. Namaste!
Awesome location overlooking Lake Arenal and the volcano! Agustin was very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms are great and have a spectacular view. I'd definitely come back here and recommend it to others.
We really enjoyed our stay at Nepenthe B & B. True the road up to the property is a little harried and you will need 4WD to make the trek, but the view is entirely worth it! We rented one cabina for 4 adults. The room contains one bed and one futon, this was ample room for the 4 of us. The view of Lake Arenal from our room was amazing! This was a good location as it was close to many of the attractions in the area, but you would likely your own vehicle. We also really enjoyed the breakfast every morning that is included. Breakfast was served family style so we had a chance to chat with fellow travelers. The on site restaurant was also very, very good. I highly recommend Nepethe!
Loved our short stay! The most beautiful views of lake arenal. The breakfast was fantastic and the staff were very friendly
We were welcomed warmly immediately by staff and shown to the room which had a very beautiful view of the volcano and lake. The room was a huge private room. We enjoyed great breakfasts and an attentive staff that were very friendly. We especially recommend getting a massage with Chris!
Great place with a beautiful view! Friendly staff and a delicious breakfast made our stay wonderful.
