Tribes Overall:

The hotels were all excellent and we would recommend Tribes. Very impressed that every driver was aware of the request for a front seat for my wife.

Tribes Service:

Yes, it all went smoothly, although we were given the wrong time for the pick up from San Jose on the first morning. We were told on the journey from the airport it was 6.30 a.m. which we were given in writing on our itinerary so we were somewhat surprised and felt rushed when we were told we had to leave breakfast immediately or we'd miss the transfer at 6.00 a.m.

Guides:

Fonsie was fantastic in Tortuguero.

San Jose

Would have been nice to have stayed there longer.

Evergreen Lodge

Tortuguero National Park

Fantastic tropical jungle location.. the wild Capuchin monkeys were a bit too friendly and the Howler monkeys very noisy!

Lomas del Volcan

Arenal

Lovely little lodge house, beautiful gardens and helpful staff. The only slight drawback was that it is a little isolated so we had to pay to use the hotel shuttle to go anywhere e.g. La Fortuna.


Hotel Belmar

Hotel Belmar

Costa Rica

Stunning views from our balcony, beautiful room and fantastic breakfasts.

Bahia del Sol

Playa Potrero, Guanacaste

Pretty fine if you want to be on the beach but not quite as good as the other hotels e.g. after we told reception about our loose bathroom tap, ants and a gheko in the room they didn't do anything nor could they find us a local map or tell us much about the area.
