We absolutely loved this hotel. We stayed two nights in April 2015. From the time we arrived at this property we felt at home. Everyone was so helpful and kind, from the hotel desk, the restaurant employees, gardeners and the cleaning staff. We had a room with two beds facing the sliding glass door and balcony. We had a refrigerator... More

Without a doubt this was a fantastic place for our family of five. The only caveat being is that we had to rent two rooms as there were no rooms for five. That aside it was/is an incredibly situated location. The view from my room is now my screen saver on my phone and anyone who sees it says 'Where... More

We drove from Puerto Viejo at the Caribbean side, it took about 6 hour to reach La Fortuna, plus extra 45 minutes to get to el Castillo. the road is in good conditions and the hotel worth the dive. The View to both Lake and Volcano Arenal is the best Breakfast was excellent

we booked at nepenthe and as they did a mistake, we got to stay in Linda Vista. the view is great and the rooms are clean. the restaurant however has the atmosphere of a railway station and the breakfast was so so. if you want a great dinner, go over to the new restaurant at nepenthe. Chef Benedict is awesome!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014. We picked it because of a recommendation I received from my brother, who had stayed here a few years ago. The hotel is located on a hillside, and has a beautiful view of the Arenal Volcano as well as Lake Arenal and the surrounding hills. The road is... More
