Get the fondue (for two people minimum). Their breakfast is yummy too, and their staff is really friendly as well.

A group of 8 traveled to the "Swiss Village of Los Heroes" outside of Nuevo Arenal Costa Rica. We had made reservations two days prior. We wanted to experience the little train ride to the revolving restaurant which overlooks beautiful Lake Arenal. The narrow guage train chug chuged up the hills in little wooden observation cars, and it was cute... More

We loved the fresh baked bread with jam and home produced butter! The cocoa was simply over the top good. Lovely fresh mountain air, not too hot nor cool. Saw two toucans after breakfast flying from one tree to the next. This truly was the best breakfast on our trip and came graitis with the room. The train ride is... More

I have been visiting in the Arenal area for several years now, a couple of times a year and this place has always been a mystery to me. Each time I would go by it would either looks closed or we had some pressing activity for the day. Today I was down with little to do and so decided I... More

All were pleased with the dinner, which was designed on this occasion to cater to local taste. Some friends arrived after the train left the station, and were glad the... More

My husband and I stopped to see the grounds and train as we have traveled thru Switzerland several years ago. This is defintely a little bit of Switzerland in Costa Rica. It was really interesting to see the Hotel, apartments and Chapel. The Chapel was especially pretty with beautiful paintings inside. The Hotel has a restaurant but we decided to... More

We were only there for a walk-through for a few minutes. We learned from locals that the original owner who came after WW2 is older now, and his missing touch is showing in the place looking like maintenance is being deferred. It could use sprucing up. We heard that the original owner was a talented engineer who built a charming... More

Pepper steak is outstanding, as is the Hungarian goulash. This restaurant has the most tender beef in all of Costa Rica.
