Upon arrival we were greeted with a drink of our choice while we checked in. Reception also helped us make a reservation for that afternoon for a volcano hike tour. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and perfectly manicured. Our room was huge and beautiful. Foyer area with couch/day bed and desk, main area with 2 queen (or full) beds, couches,... More

Great location, lovely hotel and rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Felt relaxed from the moment we arrived. Could sit for hours looking at the view of the volcano (although it can be cloud covered some of the time).

This hotel was one of our favorites. We had a beautiful view of the volcano. The room was wonderful and had a hot tub. The staff was helpful and friendly. The morning breakfast was delicious, lots of choices! We ate dinner one night at the hotel and it was also very good. We really enjoyed the hot springs, very relaxing... More

From the moment we arrived until we (reluctantly) checked out, we felt wonderfully taken care of. Views of both gorgeous plants and the volcano from our floor to ceiling window made waking up in the morning something to look forward to. The rooms were huge and well laid out; we did not experience problems with the air conditioning or anything... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and I am so happy we did. Having breakfast in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano is simply awe inspiring. Breakfast is very nice and the fresh fruit in particular is amazing. We got up early every day to go to the hot springs - Just imagine a hot bath, outside, with the view of... More

Little good about this hotel except the view of the volcano which was really stunning. The pool was tiny, the thermal baths were broken and the restaurant was terrible. The rooms were nice and spacious. The bathroom wasn't functional and our air conditioner leaked a puddle at the entrance to the bathroom. We ordered room service and we put the... More

The view of Arenal is breathtaking; the pool and grounds are lovely; the hot springs are delightful; and the game room with ping pong tables was a bonus for our son. The hot springs flow through many small pools so you almost feel you have your own private Jacuzzi. The activities we participated in (white water rafting, hiking) were not... More

Beautiful grounds and gardens, 27 acres. Our room was 1103 which was pretty far from the restaurant, but doable. In fact, we enjoyed the walk. Breakfast buffet was included with the room and it was quite good. Fresh made to orders eggs were best we had on our trip. Had dinner one night at the restaurant and my husband raved... More

Although somewhat remote, the end of the road is a Shangri-la. The grounds are beautiful and the view of the Arenal Volcano is amazing from the rooms, grounds and quite frankly, anywhere in the area. Large groups made dinner a little hectic for our smaller group but I had nowhere to go - we were where we wanted to be!!... More
