The hotel is really cool. The rooms are comfortable and the pools are nice. What I didn't like was the food of the restaurant, it was really expensive and it was not good. We asked for steaks and they tasted like nothing, they didn't even had salt. It was not good.

We loved the resort the room and the view. The warm water pools and mud were fun. Amazing waking up to hummingbirds buzzing around the flowers around our cottage View of the volcano was simply breathtaking. Staff was very friendly waving and talking to you every time they saw you made you feel at home. Would go back again

Rooms are quite spacious and well equipped including a small refrigerator. Front desk employees are very helpful… don’t hesitate to ask for ice or a pair of wine glasses. You will have a very nice view from your room if the Arenal Volcano is clear and not too cloudy. All rooms have wide windows just in front of the Volcano.... More

After a long day we checked into the hotel at about 7pm. Our desk clerk welcomed us and gave the keys. We thought the room would be bigger since it was a suite,but it wasn't.
