I travelled to Costa Rica with my family over Christmas and we decided to spend a couple of nights in Arenal. We chose this place mainly due to price and location. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Eduardo and the beautiful views of the Volcano. The staff was very friendly and willing to offer tips for exploring the area, we took their recommendation to head to one of the lesser known hot springs resorts for a day and had a wonderful time. The property is a good 30 minutes from the main road and even further to town so we ended up taking a change of clothes with us when we went to the hot springs and just ate dinner before heading back to the hotel. On our Second day, we had an early morning booking with Arenal Sky Adventures and the location made for a very easy trip to our ZipTrek. The rooms were very clean with minimal thrills. The place had a nice cozy vibe and the lack of TV in room was appreciated as we spent more time together as a family playing cards on our balcony (the beautiful views helped).
