We had a lovely time at this sprawling hotel... The semi-detached bungalows were set in lovely grounds and on our 4th day here the clouds disappeared and for a few precious seconds we could see the Arenal Volcano in all its glory! My only complaint is the pan pipes music playing in the restaurant... Breakfast was excellent and the egg-chef... More

beautiful rooms to stay in. The place was quiet which is hard to find in Costa Rica. Very friendly staff, they were always willing to help and very quick if there was a problem. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 was because the restaurant was a little too proud of their food. Lots of... More

Beautiful grounds, spacious rooms, 2 different pools (1 fed by hot springs). We felt very well taken care of. Good breakfast included, restaurant was good as well. Can book tours directly from the hotel. Located about 5 minute drive north of town

Beautiful views! Wonderful service. Very affordable. Downtown is very accessible via cab. I would recommend anyone to visit Costa Rica. Full of natural beauty! The food was great. The service even better. Try and get a room near the swim up bar.

Love this place! Great place to stay, the staff is wonderful and very informative from start to finish of our stay there in December 2014. I loved our roomy bungalow and how it's like our own little house with rocking chairs flush trees and garden right outside our door...not to mention the Awesome views of the Arenal Volcano! Beauty everywhere!... More

My mother and I were vacationing in Costa Rica, and this was the first place we stayed at during our week. May I start by saying the travel from the airport, to this location was almost 4 hours!

After Reading all the great reviews, I decided to book this hotel for 4 nights. As soon as I arrived, the room they put me and my wife in smelled like cigarette smoke. I guess the previouse tenant who stayed there was smoking in the room even though he/she was not allowed to. The hotel staff came in and just... More
