This is a beautiful hotel and the staff are the best we came across in Costa Rica. Nothing was too much trouble and every request was dealt with immediately, and with a smile. The rooms are lovely and spacious (a little worn in places, but we didn't mind), but the much publicised view of the volcano seldom materialises as it... More

We stayed 2 days in this hotel for our honeymoon. The room was fantastic. It had a hot tub overlooking the volcano; the large king bed was incredibly comfortable; and the high ceilings made the the room feel extremely spacious. The bathroom was also stunning. We loved our room. The only caveat is that this place is the highest one... More

Nice rooms. The hot tub would of been great if the chlorine smell did not exist. I hate that smell! The weather here was pretty much all rain. The hot springs pools were kind of gross. No hot and a little slimy. But they were nice looking. If they were hot and cleaned a little better they would be amazing.... More

Tired decor, tired food and tired staff. This place is in desperate need of a refurbishment. The room was dirty and smelly, we complained but nothing was done. The food at dinner was mediocre at best and hugely over-priced. The breakfast was an absolute disgrace. Please give it a miss, we wish we had.

Without a doubt this hotel was one of the finest we have ever stayed. The grounds were magnificent. Walking the paved paths through the grounds took us both to another world. Flora, fauna, general landscaping magnificent. The view from everywhere of volcano Arenal unbelievable. Our walks were as an adventure. We come to magnificent series of hot springs which were...

Room was clean, beautiful views of both the jungle and the volcano. Room had a jacuzzi inside, which was a nice added feature even though we didn't use it. Staff was friendly, service was good, conveniently located near hot springs, La Fortuna, and the lake. Downside was restaurant, which was average, and hot springs weren't really hot. But factoring in... More

This hotel is too expensive for what you get. The breakfast is like most free breakfasts. The grounds are pretty and the room is nice, has a beautiful view - when the weather is good, otherwise the hotel is high enough to be in the fog. The hot pools aren't as nice as other places. As far as I'm concerned... More

Decent four star property situated in delightful grounds with their own hot springs under the volcano. Very generous rooms with hot tub - good design although lighting could have been a little better. Very clean. Public areas lack atmosphere and need a make over. Bar not very inviting. Breakfast very dull and poor quality ingredients such as ham, cheese, yogurt... More

Great location and if the volcano is free of cloud the view would be perfect. Unfortunately during the 4 days we were there we managed to see about 70% of the volcano one afternoon but the rest of the time the volcano was hidden in cloud and mist. One of the local guides told us that you can see the... More
