My husband and I stayed there during our honeymoon. We were there for our first four days. The hotel was conveniently located to all the activities and the town. The grounds were beautiful and the room was nice. Not the most luxurious but very comfortable. The maid made super cute creature designs every day that set the hotel apart from... More

Lovely grounds. The staff go above and beyond to help, including teaching some spanish words and loaning umbrellas! Very very friendly and helpful. Food for breakfast is lovely. Restaurant is great for dinner too. Location a little bit out of the main area, costs about $8 each way to get into town, but taxis are quick to arrive. Great view... More

I stayed here recently with my husband and enjoyed the room and hospitality of the staff. The rooms are quiet and have nice views of the country. Our room was clean and well equipped. The location is great, tour busses stop right at the lobby door for all the great things you can do in the area. The front desk... More

The rooms are large and very clean, the property is conveniently located for TONS of activities in the Arenal region, and the staff were very helpful in booking some fun tours. The restaurant has good food and a wide selection if, like me, you don't have a car to always go back and forth to Fortuna town (about 6km away).... More

This is the second time I have stayed here and I was not disappointed for sure. Every room has a view of the Arenal Volcano.... The rooms are pretty nice, though I will say the room I stayed in this time was showing its age a little bit, but still petty nice. The restaurant has great food, even a very... More

The views are spectacular the location was convenient to the town of La Fortuna the attached resturant has a adequate breakfast buffet and they will cook eggs to order if you ask. Room... More

My husband and I have been exploring this beautiful country of "buena vida" and this hotel surely reflects that philosophy of hospitality, lovely rooms, great breakfast (included) and care to make sure you get to see what you want when you want it. Morning is best for the tropics, so get up early and hope for a clear day for... More

Staff was super friendly and serviceable. From the gorgeous gardens to the amazing views of Arenal volcano this place is truly enjoyable. Quiet, comfortable rooms. ( although the bathroom and the jacuzzi need to be renovated soon ) the springs in the area and the outdoor activities around the volcano make it unnecessary to stay in the room too long.... More
