We arrived after dark but were able to get a room since it was low season. We knew the view would be lovely in the morning, but it turned out to be spectacular! The location of the hotel for the lake and the volcano couldn't be any better. Once you have traveled very much in Costa Rica you know about the number of horrible, unpaved roads that you must travel on to get to many tourist locations. The road to Hotel Linda Vista is one of them, but for me worth every bumpy minute just to be able to sit in or by the pool for the view. We also very much enjoyed going between the pool and the hot tub. We did not eat at the restaurant; instead we went into town and ate at a soda. The breakfast was just as nice as reported in the other reviews I have read. The room was ample, the balcony nice, everything clean and tidy. The grounds are nicely kept and well laid out. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. This is a good mid-range hotel; not a spa, nor a hostel.
