I´m from El Castillo, La Fortuna, Costa Rica. I manage a wonderfull B&B with a magical natural surrounding.
I like almost all kind of sports, specially soccer, and my favorite music is the rock music.
The place is clean, well located and nice. The view is beautifull. The host is absolutly kind and gave us a lot of good advises. The restaurant is really good. I defenetly recommand this place!
This is a place with a Great View of both the Volcane on one side and the lake on the other side. The only problem we had was that It was difficult to find the place (we were driving from San Jose and it was dark by the time we arrived to La Fortuna). The host should concider revising the direction instructions. Otherwise, this is a great place.
This is an amazing place! I had stayed only one night and I drove for 6 hours to get there. It was worth it!! The view is breathtaking! Augustin is a lovely guy. I felt very welcomed there. I hope one day I come back!
Nepenthe is a little far from the main road to La Fortuna, and you'll have to be prepared for some rocky gravel roads. However, the views of Lake Arenal (and the volcano when it's a clear day) from Nepenthe are worth it alone. Also, Ryan and Rebecca, who run the restaurant Tres Cabras, soon to be a separate extension just at the foot of Nepenthe, made our stay heartwarming. They offer an incredible Table D'hote with wine included and they will quickly become good friends. We sat at the bar drinking wine and talking with Rebecca while she cooked one night; another night a bunch of us played music till late after dinner was finished. It was like being at a friend's dinner party every night. Lots of interesting owners from the area pop in, too. Our stay at Nepenthe was the highlight of La Fortuna! And don't forget to get a massage with the hot rocks!
Nepenthe is a little piece of heaven. The entire staff is lovely and makes you feel so welcome. The views are breathtaking and the food is delicious! I highly recommend staying at Nepenthe and getting a massage as well!
We spent a wonderful night here, super kind hosts, Augustine, Rebecca and Ryan, treated us with delicious dinner, wine and company. The rooms are very comfortable, nicely designed. The view from the room and the pool is beautiful.
Volcano Arenal can be seen from all sides. Some like the lively la Fortuna. We adored the unforgettable spot that Nephente offers.
Total tranquility, superb view over laguna Arenal, a lot of birds to spot such as Toucans and the nearby little el Castillo shows you how peacefull live is in a pueblo.
Nepenthe was the 1st place we stayed on our 1st trip to Costa Rica and Agustin and the entire team did a fabulous job making us feel welcome and at home. The views of the volcano and lake were spectacular, and the peaceful perch made it very hard to leave. We stayed in the main house which was very quiet and close to the many lounging spots by the pool. It was an extra treat to spend some time getting to know the owner and the couple opening a restaurant on the property very soon.
Agustin's directions were perfect, and while it is a bit off the beaten track, it was well worth it and easily accessible in our 4x4.
Thank you Nepenthe, we look forward to seeing you again!
Gorgeous views of the volcano and lake Arenal. The room was just as advertised, the food, massage, hot tub - all so great! I plan to return as soon as I can. Lovely people! Thanks to Augustin, Christa, Rebecca and everyone. Worth the trip!
Nice place to stay in the region.
Beautiful view and verygood breakfast.
