Impressive grounds and impeccable rooms. The ladies at the reception desk were awesome and always greeted you with a smile and asked if they could help. They recommended doing the hanging bridge tour and we are so glad we did! The views were out of this world...don't let the Costa Rican rain deter you from an outing out. The food... More

The room was old and outdated. Our unit was the furthest back on the property even though the hotel didn't seem to be full. The shower took forever to get warm water. The grounds were nice as well as the pool and jacuzzi. Also breakfast was fine, included in the room. We did have dinner one evening in the restaurant... More

We only had two nights in this hotel, but we really loved it there. Loved the large, self-contained units and the view is breath-taking. The ladies at the front desk (Andrea and not sure of the other woman's name) were very friendly and helpful and a pleasure to talk to. Would definitely recommend it!

Spent three nights here and enjoyed every minute. Spacious, clean, updated rooms, fantastic volcano views, well-manicured gardens, walk-in pool and jacuzzi, but the real highlight was the staff. Never felt so important and at home. Staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed every minute there. We were all on a first name basis within an hour... More

We went to celebrate our anniversary and my husband did not specify that it was an anniversary, when the girl in the front desk found out she had the cleaning lady create a romantic decoration in our bed with towels and local flowers. That was a very nice gesture.

First of all, the Inn is in a great location - far enough away from the busyness of La Fortuna, but close enough to get to town within 5 minutes. The property is great and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. You can tell they take customer service seriously. We were always greeted by name and made to feel... More

First, I have to confess that I manage a hotel in the US, and so my standards may be different than everyone else writing a review. But, let me tell you that this place will deliver the satisfaction you need if you are staying Costa Rica, and want spectacular views of the Volcano! The staff at this place deserves 5... More

If you're looking for breathtaking views and seclusion this place is it!!! You stay in a little villa, total guests are minimal, and the views of the volcano are gorgeous. The staff is super friendly and willing to help in any way possible. The food is decent and it's only a 5 min taxi ride into town. We loved the... More
