This is truly a very special resort. It is designed for maximum privacy in the rooms and blends with the environment. The pool with swim up bar and spa with water fall is a nice treat. Make sure your room is not to close to the pool, It gets a little noisy. If you have 4 people, get the 2... More

Our cottage had a private pool. There were four of us, so that was perfect to have the two adjoining rooms. The beds were very comfortable and the linens were very high quality. On our last day, the clouds cleared and we had a perfect view of the Arenal Volcano. It was right before sunset, so we got some great... More

We stayed here in January 2015 for 5 days. Before arriving we had requested a refrigerator via email that gave us the refrigerator for $30 for the stay. The front desk knew nothing about this and was quoting us $30 a night but we had the email from the manager (who we never saw). We did get our refrigerator. The... More

My wife and I loved this place. The pool is heated, amazing views, the bartender Randall was fantastic and Douglas in the restaurant was great. Loved this whole area, short drive to town, the waterfall, Cerro chato, sky adventures etc. Breakfast was good and the bar good was good but the dinners were just alright(a little expensive for what you...

We really enjoyed this place! We spent a lot of time relaxing and lounging in our nice cottage, reading on the patio or in our room, and listening to the nature sounds and rain. The pool was warm and fun, even in the rain, and the swim up bar lots of fun too. The food at the restaurant was great... More

Staff only focussed on money. I really did not like it. Dishonest staff. Could not recommend. Way better value places so close. We also stayed at Lavas Tacotal down the road which was cheaper but a far, far nicer atmosphere. I stayed through Expedia 2&3rd January.

This hotel is away from the city of La Fortuna. pros: awesome view of the volcano from the cottage. Individual cottage rooms, lots of greenery and birds, fairly good breakfast, friendly staff. cons: hotel offers transportation to places, but can get fairly pricey! To Fortuna -$12, Volcano - $20, Hanging Bridges - $24. Wifi not available in rooms, have to... More

This is a nice hotel, staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are spread over the property and very close to nature and plants, you can see several different type of birds. The room doors did not have door sweep therefore several bugs were crawling into the room at night time. Beds are not very comfortable. Decor is rustic.... More

I would give them a 3.5 rating if possible. I wanted to give them better than a 3 star, but couldn't quite justify a 4-star. The grounds are beautiful, with about a dozen "duplexes" located around the property. The pool area is very nice, with a large pool, "warm" tub (not hot by any stretch), swim up bar, waterfall, and... More
