We had a perfect stay in this beautiful hotel. The owners are very warm and friendly and make the best food with ingredients directly from their garden. Not only the rooms but also the view is just perfect.

Lovely family that offers a very warm and friendly welcome. When staying in the Ceiba Tree Lodge, it feels like staying in paradise. I also recommend to have dinner there! The host is also the cook, and knows what he’s talking about!

We really enjoyed our stay. Especially loved the spectacular lake- and sunset views and delicious family-style dinners that Dirk and his wife prepared for us. We came here with our hybrid car which they let us charge for free, great service.
