Nice clean room. Lovely big shower. Friendly bartender and waiters. We were there 2 nights and enjoyed the breakfast. There was a hot tub and pool, but we didn't use it. Many people were going on four wheelers if that is your thing. Enjoyed the TV and found an English station!

We enjoyed our stay here a lot. We stayed in a casita in the back of the property and it was lovely. The noises at night were interesting. If you need good coffee there's a tiny little place a short walk down the road on the right. Roy! He roasts his own beans and his coffee is fantastic.

We stayed in standard room that was just perfect. Very clean & cozy. From our porch we had a fantastic view of the Arenal Volcano. The bartender was excellent (I wish I could remember his name) - the food was great. I would definitely stay here again.

Very reasonable rates and close to La Fortuna! We walked and also took taxis to and from. Office staff was knowledgable and spoke English! Breakfasts were very good and they offered an array of foods. We stayed in a cabin/cottage and it was roomy and large. My favorite was the front porch with rocking chairs and a table that faced...

The pool area has fussball table along with two large hot tubs, flat screen tv, which they turned on the let us watch baseball game. A small bar... More

This is a very quiet hotel/area. We did travel during their down season/rainy summer. All the pictures of this hotel are spot on. Beautiful and peaceful. Very humid and basic room. But you should enjoy the outside as much as possible. Wish the hotel made more effort to make it more lively for young adults. Keep the pool/bar area open... More

Employees from the front desk on made us feel like they would rather not be bothered. Each guest received one very small thin bath towel and discouraged from asking for an additional towel to use at the pool area. Pillows seemed like they had been washed too many times and lumpy. The room was clean and that is about it.... More
