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.

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.
What a wonderful stay! I know there have been many comments about the road to the property, but please do not let it discourage you (I admit I was very nervous about it myself before we arrived). Yes, it is a bumpy ride, and yes, it takes about 30 minutes to get to La Fortuna, but trust me, it's well worth it for the view from the property. I actually feel sorry for people staying in La Fortuna who only get a view of the volcano (when and if it's not clouded over).
Apart from the view, Agustin was extremely helpful in organizing tours for our 5 day stay (ziplining, hiking, canyoneering, kayaking, hot springs) and answering our questions about the area!
The breakfast served each morning was delicious and filling, and the restaurant on the property, Tres Cabras, is AMAZING. Ryan and Rebecca are gracious, inviting hosts and the food is absolutely delicious. We ate there three times during our 5 night stay!
Don't miss out on this experience!
Place is located in a beautiful area and was very clean. Probably the least buggy place we stayed in and that says a lot in Costa Rica! Rooms are basic and functional, again very clean.
The property is on a high ground with spectacular views; the cabin was comfortable with a little kitchenette; nice breakfast in the morning. Little romantic restaurant on the property served superb dinner. Be aware, you do need an four wheel drive to get to the place. Overall, unforgettable place.
We have just finished a wonderful 4 days in Nepenthe.
The setting of Nepenthe is amazing with great views over the lake and volcano. The accommodation is simple but clean and comfortable and any problems we had were very quickly sorted by Augustin.
The best thing about Nepenthe though is the people. We were made to feel very welcome by Gordon and Augustin as well as the other guests. A special mention must go to the attached restaurant (Tres Cabres) which serves amazing home made food and we had a great time drinking wine with the owners Ryan and Rebecca.
Thoroughly recommended if you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful location nearby to all the attractions of Arenal.
