We stayed at Lucky Bug B&B for 2 nights during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. It is a true paradise in the heart of Nuovo Arenal. Surrounded by the breathtaking garden with a pond, the B&B feels very private and discrete. Our room was spotless clean and beautifully decorated with local artisanal art pieces. It had a great little balcony...

What a nice review!!! We work hard to provide the best experience we can while you are in our part of Costa Rica, and so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The longer you stay with us, the more different breakfasts you have, so glad you enjoyed them. The locally produced jam is made right here on our property....

The hotel is really nice, with a bit of rainforest and a little lake. The rooms are nice and unique, each with different decorations. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Would definitely recommend this place!

We are glad you enjoyed our B&B and we are glad we were of help to you during your stay. Great care is taken in decorating the rooms and carrying the theme of the particular room through with those decorations. Most of them can also be purchased in the Lucky Bug Gallery also. Pura Vida

This was on a beautiful property, rooms were clean, breakfast was plentiful, healthy and delicious and the hosts were very helpful and pleasant. I was surprised upon arrival there was no A/C but there were fans to help circulate the air. (Found out later this is typical of that area). The sun room was a bit dark, could use more/...

Thanks for your nice review. Yes, not many of the places in the Arenal area have A/C. Sometimes we get to 80 degrees during the day, but that is when people are out doing activities. During the evenings, however, it cools off and you can drift off to the sounds of frogs and other animals. Everyone loves the leisurely walk...

We spend a wonderfull moment at Lucky Bug Bed and Breakfast. The place is very beautiful and peacefull. The owners are friendly, kind and good advice. And the breakfast is incredible, very delightful, refreshing, with a view on the birds and the lake.

Next time you need to stay longer to really enjoy all our area has to offer. We are a good place as a base to go to Rio Celeste, La Fortuna, Arenal Volcano, Cano Negro, and yes, even Monteverde. We are in a quieter area than the local tourist towns and a perfect place to unwind after a busy day....

Rob and Monica are the best! I had emailed many questions to the LuckyBug before our arrival and all of them were answered promptly and thoroughly.
