From the second we arrived, we were treated with such respect and accommodating service. Jorge greeted us out front, then to check in where the front desk staff was equally helpful. We had a welcome Tico Sour, which was our drink of choice the rest of our stay. The room was spacious, clean, and had an amazing view of Arenal... More

We were booked here for three nights of our trip and the impression on arrival is superb and we had a splendid room. What let the hotel down badly was the confusion over dinner and the dining experience. We were told there was only one restaurant (of two) available and we had to eat at either the 6 or 8... More

The hotel is relatively expensive but the views of the Arenal volcano on a clear day are impressive, rooms are large and well furnished and the bar and restaurant good, which is just as well since the hotel has a long, steep driveway and getting a cab to go anywhere else proved to be difficult; there is one restaurant "down...

What a romantic spot! The Tico Sour welcome drink was great and we felt so welcomed and accommodated. Our room with the large shower, king bed and view of the volcano was everything you could ask for. Breakfast was very nice with great variety and I had a yummy afternoon snack at the pool bar. Dinner was okay- nothing to... More

We were greeted with warm welcome, our room had the view of their lush garden and Arenal Volcano! Large rooms, jacuzzi in the room. Hot springs were amazing, the restaurant was great, good food, buffet breakfast was delicious and can't believe how Enrique was so knowledgable about wines. Will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends!

Nice hotel with a great view at the volcano. Not getting better, front row. The room was also great and spacious. The hot springs were also good. Breakfast was ok, just don't really like these small packages of marmalade and cereals. That's quite from the 90s, could be better. But overall good pricing for good rooms.

A first class experience. The property is beautiful and boasts the best views of the Volcano from anywhere in Arenal. We loved their hot springs and it was nice to have a well-made cocktail from one of their two bars. I can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff here is. We worked with Adrián to help plan... More

Amazing setting of the hotel with rooms all overlooking the Arenal volcano. The rooms are huge, with a jacuzzi n them, again, over looking the volcano. The A/C is not central, but rather a unit per room. In January that was enough, I do not know how effective it is during the hotter months, specially in the rooms on the... More

This was probably the most luxurious hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica, but some of the luxury felt a bit contrived / overdone. For instance, every room has a 4-person hot tub, which was nice to relax, but made the room really damp and humid. Likewise the restaurant was enormous, but it was mostly empty whenever we ate there.... More
