This is a great hotel where you sleep in individual wooden cabins spread in a look-after garden. There are various flowers and birds can be seen especially early morning. Rooms are comfortable with an ensuite. Breakfast offers a good choice with the usual fruits, gallo pinto and pancakes common in Costa Rica. Dinner is ok but quite pricey otherwise you... More

This resort is located in beautiful grounds which are well maintained. There is a lot of wildlife around and we were lucky to be in the company of a sloth for 24 hours right outside the restaurant. The hot springs were clean and the topmost one was nice and hot. The food in the restaurant was good and service was... More

We checked in on a Friday evening and we were given the keys to a private cabin! It was precious. The cabin had a volcano view and more green than I could imagine!

I am glad that the world is full of different people, and different perspectives. We absolutely loved this place, it's simplicity and its situation. The pools are great, and the food is tasty. If you want 5 star, go somewhere else. If you want somewhere interesting with comfy beds, then this place is fun.

The only one advantage of this hotel is that it's situated closed to volcano Arenal and national park. We reserved superior room for 3 adults per 1 night. When we arrive, we saw 2 single beds.
