This is NOT in Rincon de La Vieja. This resort is about an hour from the entrance to the Rincon park and is on the west (Caribbean) side of the mountain, in the rainy season area. We booked this resort based solely on TripAdvisor reviews and could not have been more disappointed. I wanted to leave once we got there,... More

If I detail certain aspects of our stay, I will reveal several things that our family considered to be true wow factors. The value is superb and great facilities. The owners did a great job building a surprisingly quality experience

Hola and thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your complements. Often we receive a low mark for location and I’d like to shed a different light on that. With respect to getting here, signs are posted along the roadside, but please get your directions to the resort from our website because sometime guests end... More

We stayed here 4 nights during green season. The price was by far the best in Costa Rica, and it's beautiful. The grounds are nice, and the butterfly garden and hummingbirds were a hit with our kids. We also loved the hot springs. They were different temperatures, less hot than where we stayed in Arenal, and they look murky rather... More

Never having been to Costa Rica before, my sister and I wanted to experience the different parts of it. So before heading to the beach, we decided to spend a few days in the mountains. The rooms have a wonderful rustic feel, the food is delicious, the river is just as blue as it looks in the pictures and the... More

First, let me say, my husband and I travel all over the world and travel for the culture of a country. The last thing we want is to get to a country and feel as if we are still in the USA. My husband and I actually loved this place. We even loved the drive on the gravel mountain road... More

This was my birthday present for my daughter's 21st birthday. She loved it and so did I. The hot springs pools were decedent. The cabana is large and feels very private, like a cabin in the rainforest should. The entire resort is landscaped beautifully, with gorgeous flowers blooming along the walkway. The staff is warm, friendly and eager to help.... More

Yes, all the reviews about how remote it is are very true. From the airport it took about 1.5 hrs., 30 minutes on paved road, 45 to 60 minutes on gravel. But forget that. We had a great time. It's a small complex with one restaurant, but the grounds were beautiful and well kept. Above all the people there are... More
