Villa Decary

2 km (1 mile) east of Nuevo Arenal, Nuevo Arenal, 50807, Costa Rica

There's much to recommend at this hillside property, most of all the large picture windows and balconies overlooking Lake Arenal and the attentive service from the owners. Standard rooms have white tile floors and paintings by local artists. Higher up the hill, spacious bungalows with kitchens afford an even better view and are farther away from the road. With over 30 varieties of palm trees, this is a great place for bird-watching, and an on-site nature guide helps you delve into what you'll see here. A huge breakfast with homemade tortillas and breads is included, and the Gingerbread restaurant next door is a favorite with guests for dinner.
