After reviewing the company's web site and seeing the prices, I was expecting a Ramada Inn level facility, and was happily surprised that it was significantly nicer. Fun reception after a long drive. We had adjoining rooms with our kids, rooms were immaculately clean, comfy beds, neat tropical feeling to the showers. The hot springs are basically a flowing hot... More

My husband and I stayed here in December 2011, we were looking for a romantic getaway to celebrate my husbands birthday. The service is AWESOME, everyone is pleasant and willing to help. The location is SPECTACULAR! You are 10 mins away from the main city, it's a quick cab ride into the city if you want to go there. It... More

This facility is well kept with beautiful landscaping and buildings that fit well in the physical environment. The services and staff are excellent. Excellent restaurant and hot springs pools are just out of this world.

After a grueling all-day drive through the mountains in the rain and fog, we arrived with our family of 4 adults and two young children to a warm welcome, which eased my frazzled nerves. The resort is beautifully landscaped, with a profusion of flowering plants and birds of every sort and color, especially in the morning. Although it rained almost... More

We stayed here on a four nights special. We enjoined ourselves very much. There are many, many parks just like this in the area. But we found this resort to be good value for money. The food in the restaurant is good, and the staff is very professional and courteous, but a little overpriced. The breakfast is also good, and... More

We just got back from Costa Rica and stayed at this resort for two nights. It was a wonderful experience. The room was large, well lit, with a really large bathroom and great shower. I had laundry done there as I had clothing that was soaked from the constant rain. They charge very little and do an excellent job. The... More

This is by far the best hotel in which I stayed in Costa Rica during my recent trip to that country. The rooms were spacious, the bathroom large and very well done, the grounds were magnificent, the pool looks just marvelous, the gardens very well taken care of, the food abundant and good. What more could one ask? Oh, yes,... More
