Beautiful hotel with incredibly spacious rooms. The view from the rooms is fantastic. Our first morning, when we opened the curtains, the volcano was there with a clear blue sky. We all enjoyed the facilities including 3 pool slides and hot pools. There are also some crocodiles in the park. Food was excellent although like in most places we went... More

Went with my family of 4 plus mother in law and brother in law for three nights as part of multi-location Costa Rica vacation. We loved the grounds and pools. Rooms were fine, nothing special. It is the grounds that make this place. On a clear day you have amazing view of the volcano. We had dinner at the restaurant... More

The kids absolutely loved this place. The grounds are absolutely beautiful! The lobby staff do lack any social skills and the service at the swim up bar was terrible the while time we were there! Be prepared to walk your butt off! I will say they offer a shuttle service and those guys were amazing and always super nice. The... More

Came here with family and our 2 kids ages 6 and 8. Room is a motel-like room, truly average, if that. Restaurant was very average and bland, the service was weak took no real interest in us being there. The best part about the place is the hot springs and water slides for the kids (and us). Probably better to... More

Once you check in, you honestly wouldn't have to leave for the duration of your stay if you didn't want to. The food is delicious, the rooms comfortable, and there are some fun activities and amenities on site. There are hot springs, small zip lines, wildlife exhibits, horseback riding, hiking to an overlook of the volcano, swim up bars; you... More

We came here for a few hours just to visit the hot springs and relax without knowing what to expect. We had to pay $15 to use the facilities. The place was a lot more commercialized than we expected but we were happy to find the hot springs quite warm and the swim up bar was a nice bonus. The... More

Wow! This is something I only dreamed about, this huge resort property is surrounded by beautiful, lush indigenous plants with the epic backdrop of the volcano. The resort itself is well-kept and easily accessible. The resort is literally in the best location you can be in to see the volcano with all the rooms (at least from what I could... More

We all loved this hotel, especially the added decadence of hot springs in the hotel grounds. Nothing can match a day of white water rafting, then to be soothed by the hot (like a bath hot!) water of the springs whilst sipping a large Mojito or Pina Colada at the wet bar! Just bliss! The kids really enjoyed the various... More

We tried booking our room online but opted to call directly as i'd heard they might have better rates over the phone and, they sure did! We paid about $110 for one night that included 3 meals for 2 people! Amazing value in this pricey area of CR. The hotel is beautiful, very very well maintained. The hot springs are... More
