Holiday review by Mrs. Clare Cobbold

Date of trip: 10/04/2019
Number of people: 4
Country: Costa Rica

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "All the arrangements/logistics worked well. We had a fab time, an amazing experience for the kids - just what we wanted."
Tribes Service: "The advice was spot on and the travel app with the documents really helpful."
Guides: "Lionel looked after us well and made us laugh. Charlie, the boat driver at Tortugero, was amazing at spotting animals. The guide at the Arenal zipwire (Gabriella I think) was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Excellent"


Evergreen Lodge
Really clean rooms and friendly staff.
Bahia del Sol
Beautiful position on the beach. The best lunches/dinners of the trip. Helpful staff. Only one issue detracted - the room could have been cleaner (it needed a really through deep clean).
Hotel Presidente
Helpful staff and fab breakfast
Arenal Springs Hotel
Amazing breakfasts, lovely pool bar, fab view of the volcano.
