We very much enjoyed our three day, two night stay at this small hotel. We arrived several hours before check-in time and they allowed us to check in immediately which allowed us to unload our car and take advantage of our travel day as a sight seeing day without worrying about guarding our luggage in the car. The service was very friendly with freely offered advice on what to do, They offered breakfast for $5 but we prepared our own so I can't comment on what was served. The grounds were lovely and we enjoyed sitting on the porch which had a fantastic view of the volcano and also provided some of the best bird watching of the whole trip. The rooms were mostly in duplex style cabins of which there were perhaps a half dozen. This was a much nicer arrangement then some of the larger, more expensive hotels where you were in a big city style building complex. When you stepped out the door of your cabin you were outside and about 30 feet from a farm pasture with horses, cows, and chickens with an incredible view. The room was equipped with a dorm sized fridge and a coffee maker which allowed us to save a little money on food which is not cheap in Costa Rica. The window offered a great view of Arenal Volcano from the bed. The plumbing was a little odd but once we figured it out we had abundant hot water. Everything was clean and comfortable. I highly recommend and would return to this hotel.
