We spent 4 nights in the 2 bedroom unit in Nov of 2016. It was spacious and the weather was clear for the time we were here. We were the the only people there so we had the place to out selves. The grounds were amazing. The howlers were active at sunrise and sunset. Definitely need a AWD/4 Wheel to get up the driveway and lots of dirt roads. Fairly remote area but La Fortuna had a decent grocery store and the Arenal area has lots of restaurants too plus there is the hot springs area. We also did some zip lining, which was amazing too.

Pie In The Sky in El Castillo was beyond our expectations in every way. Our entire family’s of 7 ages 19-73 enjoyed staying in the lovely well appointed home. All rooms had nice views. It was wonderful to wake up to the sound of birds, or watch the sun rise from behind the volcano. It was a relaxing place to be in every way. After a day of hiking and zip lining we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. Good restaurants nearby so no need to drive to La Fortuna although when we did drive there the trip was easy enough. Staying here was one of the highlights of our Christmas family vacation to Costa Rica. The host Agustin was most helpful. He can recommend tours and hikes. He waited to greet us and show the house in spite of our unexpected late arrival. By the way, don’t miss the opportunity to eat at Howlers just down the hill or The Phoenix nearby.

It is probably the only high quality accommodations with a panoramic 365 degree view of Arenal Volcano, Lake Arenal, and the surrounding rain forests. Walter and his staff make you feel right at home.

A beautiful place with room for the whole family. A former B&B so everyone had their own bathroom which we loved. Only gathering place is the deck outside by the pool, but it is covered and gorgeous. The concierge Augustine was excellent and helped us out every time we needed him. It is set in a little town next to the volcano on the lake on a dirt road. We found our favorite activities very close by. There are several little restaurants only a few km away and a little market also. Perfect base of operations for zip lines, river activities, horseback riding into the rain forest, and a 30 min drive to the touristy town Fortuna. We were grateful to escape Fortuna to our quiet village. Howlers next door is a cool little bar for burgers and pizza and a really good soup! Most nights the family took over the entire bar and they were super friendly and accommodating. Awesome time, love to come back

Our group had a great time. Nancy, Dan, and Agustin were fantastic hosts. Nancy answered all of my questions prior to arriving, Dan checked in with us throughout our stay to make sure everything was alright, and Agustin was an outstanding concierge. Agustin met us at the house even though we had a late night arrival to help us get settled in. He recommended things to do and took care of booking activities for us and even arranged transportation for us since we got dropped off at the Majestic via shuttle from SJO airport. The Majestic is clean, beautiful, and if you're lucky enough to be here on a clear day, the views can't be beat. Our first impression was how clean and well organized everything was, or as my wife described it "spa like." Everyone appreciated coming back here after a long day of adventures and being able to take a swim in the pool, relax in the hot tub, or having some drinks while taking in the views from the outdoor dining area. The middle of town is only a 15-20 minute walk which we walked quite often to go to the restaurants or to get snacks/beverages from the store there. There's also Howler's Bar and Grill right next to the house which is open for lunch and dinner. They have awesome pizza and great craft beer. Staying here in this quiet little village was our favorite part of our trip. The Majestic let us break away from the thousands of other tourists and pushy street vendors and just enjoy Costa Rica. If I'm ever lucky enough to visit Costa Rica a second time I would definitely stay here again. I would highly recommend the Majestic to anyone looking for a place to stay in the La Fortuna area.
