My fiancé and I stayed here for the first part of our trip in Costa Rica. I cannot begin to express how beautiful, magical, and amazing this place is. The grounds are like something out of a beautiful fairytale set in the rainforest. It is colorful with lush vegetation, an active volcano as a backdrop, and hot springs! The service... More

My family and I stayed for 3 nights a few weeks ago. The hospitality, location and food were all superb! The entire staff was most accommodating and helped us arrange taxis and a horseback riding tour. Rooms were very clean and Rosa made the cutest towel arrangements. The volcano appeared every day we were there. We stayed in Bldg. 11... More

Very high standards from all the personnel in the different departments. Restaurant should offer more local cuisine and the use of fruits and vegetables from the area. It's a good way to present Costa Rica's food

We spent 3 nights at this hotel. We were greeted by Victor upon arrival and he was so nice. He did an excellent job of explaining everything and getting us and our luggage to our rooms.

We stayed 3 nights at this beautifully situated hotel. The room had full picture windows and we were lucky to have clear sight of Mount Arenal for the majority of time we were there. As there were the hot volcanic pools outside it seemed a little strange that a hot tub was in the room but as it was there... More

Dear Jill, We are really glad that you found our accommodations just like you expected them to be. It is really good to hear you had a great time with us.

We had 4 people and our room was huge with a hot tub in the room. The grounds were beautiful as well as the hot springs. Breakfast buffet was great! Nice touch with free drinks on arrival.

This was a gorgeous, and accomodating hotel. The views of the volcano are breathtaking, and waking up to the sounds of the wildlife was so serene. We were greeted with a bottle of wine in our room, and every day a different "towel sculpture" on our bed. The hot springs were so relaxing and romantic, the complimentary breakfasts were delicious... More
