Best stay!
My family and I had a lovely 5 night stay at Noah’s Forest. The property is a gem and a short drive to the town of La Fortuna. The staff and service were exceptional and we highly recommend this hotel. Breakfast was delicious and the property is well maintained.

Amazing hotel and would absolutely stay again on any return visit. Beautiful rooms, great restaurant on site and quiet enough just out of town (but bring a car!). Staff really helpful with planning activities, and food was some of the best on our entire trip - thank you!

Architecturally gorgeous and so well designed with nature as the main character. Every one in this hotel is so welcoming and passionate about nature they really make the stay extra special! We arrived with no plan and Allan told us exactly what we could do, book what needed to be booked and we loved everything! make sure to do the night walk at the sister hotel!! Josue there will take you on a very fun informative tour. There we met Angelika who also was so nice and knowledgeable and always giving good tips what to see and where to spot nature. One time she waited for us to show us a couple of toucans who were sleeping on a branch at the hotel for the night! Modesto makes the garden a paradise and he is also the sloth whisperer: Every day he spots a sloth and puts a telescope for anyone to see them. We also enjoyed meeting Juan Carlos who made our dinner and breakfast so special and welcoming. We enjoyed Noah's forest so much it was really hard to leave.

Stay here.
This place is absolutely amazing. From the private non connected rooms, to each room having a hot tub, to breakfast and getting to see wild sloths, this place is a must stay.

10 year Anniversary trip with family and friends!
This place is amazing! Absolutely gorgeous property and rooms. The breakfast and food was delicious, the cocktails were great, the staff (J.C. At the bar 100!!!) and welcome concierge it was such a great experience. We were a group of 18 traveling to Noah’s Forest and everyone was thoroughly impressed and pleased by the property, the service, cleanliness, all of it. I would stay here again in La Fortuna and highly recommend to others!

I loved staying at Noah’s Resort. It’s so beautiful and nicely tucked away in a wonderful area. The staff is really awesome. Juan Carlos, David, Allen, and everyone is so kind and helpful. Highly recommend going to the frog tour at the sister hotel that’s about 15 minutes away. Everything from the food, cabana, and property are wonderful. I used their spa services as well and highly recommend that too.

Noah’s Forest is one of a kind! We are so thankful we chose to stay here. Everything about it felt special and unique. We were welcomed by friendly staff, a tasty welcome drink and beautiful views and sounds of nature. Don’t let the drive in fool you, it looks like a little neighborhood and then you arrive to a sweet hidden gem of a jungle. We enjoyed every minute. The breakfast is included and it was so delicious. The coffee is a must and we had a special treat waiting for us in our room because we were celebrating our anniversary. Such a wonderful place!
