A gem of a place set in what turned out to be a fantastic launching pad for surrounding activities. Ellen's recommendations for activities saved valuable research time and all were first rate. A great location to stay for a 4-7 days. Room was clean and comfy. Views as advertised. Breakfasts different every day (nice!) and always with fresh local fruit. Horseback riding w/Lilander @ Appaloosa a most recommended way to see the beautiful countryside. Kudos to Ellen for her attention to detail! Will come again we hope.
Ellen is a most gracious host! She has a beautiful place, all tucked away in El Castillo. It reminds me of Bolinas, CA in that magical off the beaten track way. She was SO helpful with getting us reservations for horseback riding tours, zip lining and hot springs. This is a very cool area to visit and Ellen knows everybody and gave us really good tips!! It's a truly special place!! (And the breakfasts were delicious.)
We only have nice things to say about our stay at Ellen's. We had a great time! We saw many species of bird in Ellen's garden! We enjoyed the hot tub and the breakfast was really good! The location is ideal too!
The hummingbird B&B was a great place to spend a couple of days in El Castillo, right near the Arenal Volcano. While the 9km dirt road was a little jarring, it was well worth the ride to spend time off the beaten path, away from all of the tourists in La Fortuna.
Ellen is a great host, very informative, and provides everything you'd need for a stay in and around Arenal.
The apartment is in super great location. You live in paradise. The volcano is right in front of eyes. The view is wonderful. Nelly is totall nice and helpful. There was a wonderful breakfast. Just gorgeous. It was much appreciated. Thanks.
